I was in town for business. Rydges World Square is well located to the NSW Law Courts and has many good quality restaurants close by. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The disabled room was perfect for wheelchair mobility.

Great staff all around. From the front desk to housekeeping; From the concierge to the food & beverage staff. Whether it was printing documents in a timely fashion or servicing a room early on request or the bartender bending over backwards to try and please you. It's what makes the difference. Tried the Soleil pool/bar for the first time. Food... More

I've stayed at Rydges twice now. Even though the decor and fixtures and fittings are old, and is in need of a revamp, I've stayed here because of its proximity to places I need to get to in Sydney. It's a short walk from museum station so getting to and from the airport is a doddle too. Staff in general... More

I stayed here while in Sydney for work. The hotel was so quiet and the rooms spacious. The décor is quite fine but a little dated. My king room had a dining table, desk and a bath. There was plenty of lighting and the bed was great. I ordered room service from the restaurant attached and it was delicious and... More

People were pleasant, room was comfortable and nice. Centrally located with some nice places to eat in close proximity. Service was great. When I was checking in there were a whole bunch of flight attendants checking in at the same time and the person at the front desk politely asked if they would mind waiting while checking me in first....
