4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for 1 night. The room was neat and tidy and in a great location for exploring sydney by foot, museum train station is only a few hundred metres away which is a bonus. Decor was neat but a little dated and the beds were comfortable.

The room is too small for 4 people.There are lots of small cockroaches in bathroom. Before I called them, hotel only put two towel and cups for 2 people in the begining and it took a long time to add more things.

The wife and I stayed at Rydges at World Square on a Friday night so that we could attend a local event. We are regulars in the CBD but it was our first time in this part of town and was not too sure what to expect but from the look of it there is tonnes to do in this... More

We bought this off the rydges site, so the rate was about the same as a country motel, which means Sydney wasn't busy, but I need to reevaluate how I judge a good price because this wasn't a good room. Our room was located alongside the aircon machinery for the attached mall, and that machinery roared 24 hours a day,... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in the heart of Sydney. The rooms were very spacious and kept clean. Reception were very friendly and helped me as much as possible with my stay. I do like the way you can check-in to the hotel before arrival and request what type of room you would like. Requesting higher floor meant... More

When we come to Sydney we always enjoy rydges service and quality. Most of all the quiet rooms, comfortable bed and pillows. The location is excellent. Walking distance to great shopping and restaurants.

I always enjoy staying here. The rooms are very comfortable and I love the dream beds. The Sphere restaurant is OK, but I found the dishes to be lacking a little in taste. The the bar is great and does some nice food and drinks. Love that they have cider and ginger beer on tap! I always find the service... More

I stayed here recently having to travel to Sydney for work. I booked through the Rydges site, as opposed to Wotif etc which I normally use. Check-in was fast and the service generally friendly. The room was tidy but quite understated compared to some other places I've stayed recently for similar a price. The real pro is the location, very... More

We stayed here over a long weekend in a Family room which consisted of 2 bedrooms. The rooms were of a good size, clean and with modern bathroom. Staff were friendly. Bar was good to have a drink at the end of a long sightseeing day. Breakfast was good no complaints. Location is excellent with easy walking into the main... More

Stayed for 3 nights over the weekend and couldn't believe how affordable it was for its location. We were walking distance to everything! Plenty of restaurants to choose from and tonnes of shopping nearby. The room itself was spacious enough for 2, very clean, and the beds were more than comfortable. Free WiFi and friendly staff also.
