The first time ever staying in Australia, the rydges hotel was a great. It was close to all the shops and right in the center of Pitt street. The staff were very friendly and the bed room we had was a great size and the bed was very comfy! Overall great stay.

Disappointed with the Hotel. Dank wet-dog smell in corridors, furniture in room scratched & stained. A dodgy repair in the bathroom shower where the rose exits the wall tiles had been done with silicon & mould has grown behind & around it. My room just had an overwhelming feeling of being tired & shabby.

Very quick one night stay, but overall a good experience. The hotel is very central, and most things are well provided. Some good options to eat or drink on site, but so many other options right at your doorstep. Rooms are clean, relatively modern, and great comfortable beds. They continue to commit the normal sin of no powerpoints beside the... More

We opted for the Rydges hotel as we wanted a hotel in a good location of a certain standard (!). The location of the hotel was perfect for us as we wanted to do some touristy sightseeing, some shopping, close to China Town and great food plus easy return after going to the Lion King at Capitol Theatre.

A great week end in Sydney at one of the most convenient locations that you could choose. We went to the Theatre - two blocks down; Paddy's Markets - three blocks down; out to dinner - across the road; out to breakfast - next door; and shopping - under the hotel in World Square.

We 've stayed here before, this time was only a one night stopover to go to a theatre production at Capital Theatre. This hotel is less than 10 minutes walk to theatre.
