Stayed at this hotel on a work trip as company has a contract with Rydges. As a Rydges priority guest member, I was welcomed to the hotel well and my special requests such as high floor request was taken care off. I was given nice room on 20th floor and it was nice spacious room. Room had nice dream bed... More

We stayed there for 1 night while in Sydney earlier this month. The rate wasn't cheap but we just wanted to be close to our family. We could have paid a little bit more and stayed at the Hilton or Sheraton! The room and bathroom were old and small. Concierge was super friendly though and the check in and check... More

Couldn't really fault anything at the hotel. Staff were friendly and professional. Location was great as we were going to watch the lion king a couple of blocks away. Room was clean. Mini bar was reasonably priced, nothing overly expensive which was a nice change. Overall a great hotel. Only little inconvenience is they close one entrance in the evening... More

This is our 4th stay at this hotel and once again we were blown away with the service and quality of the hotel. Firstly the reception found us the most suitable room for our family so our stay would be more comfortable. The family room was spacious and the beds are the best we have ever slept in. The service... More

I'm writing this review before staying at the hotel. I used expedia to find a room for one night near the Sydney airport for a family of 2 adults and 3 kids. The website pulled up room choices specifically for this sized party at great rates. The listing for the room we've selected at this hotel said it will accommodate... More

I have stayed at many Rydges- Wellington, Melbourne, Port Macquarie and others and I have to say this is the worst one I have stayed in. The rooms are basic and pretty outdated, although they do have very comfortable beds and pillows. There was no view from the room- just another building. The parking is super expensive - $60 (valet... More

Rydges World Square is an ok hotel in a very busy street in the Sydney CBD, although they had valet parking ($60) it was hard to find an area at the front of the hotel to off load luggage, king room was large enough for 2 adults, room and bathroom was clean and tidy. Room was on the 19th level... More

We were both really pleasantly surprised about the quietness of our room for such a central Sydney location. While the room didn't have a great view the trade off of peace and quiet was well worth it. Rydges give a good deal of publicity to their beds and we found the bed lived up to all their claims, it was... More

Booked a "special deal" where the site said 2pm check in. Paid and the confirmation had 2 checkin times. In bold 2pm and in small print 8.30pm. Of course that's what they tried on when we got there. Hotels.com sorted it. +1 hotels.com, -10 rydges. Basically hotels.com covered the cost of the "upgrade" to the advertised check in time. Additionally... More

Dear swamprat96, I am sorry to hear regarding the confusion about the check in, as you had booked a special rate with a 8.30pm check in. I would also like to advise that there has been no issues regardin our Wifi or airconditioning and all I can suggest is that it could be a simple human error. I am sorry... More
