Beautiful hotel very close to Sydney bay. Large rooms but very expensive. From there you have a very nice walk to the Opera House. It is placed almost in China town. Outside is always plenty of young people.

The house keeping wasn't overly good. Coffee/tea was not replenished and dirty glasses were not replaced. Room size was quite small for the price that was being paid. Gym was hard to find, signage could be better.

This is the third time I have stayed at Rydges World Square while visiting Sydney to attend the Capitol Theatre. My room was recently refurbished and facilities were excellent. The hotel is well positioned in terms of access to the Sydney shopping district, transport, and a very short walk to Capitol Theatre. Desk staff were very helpful at check-in allocating... More

Needed a hotel close to our Sydney operations and Rydges World Square was just a short walk away. Convenient, close-by, clean, friendly and simple check in and check out. Room was perfect for a one night stopover, left feeling refreshed the next day.

We are a family of 5 and stayed in a family room. The staff were all very obliging and the rooms were immaculate. Check-in and check-out were quick and breakfast in the restaurant was delicious, hot and plentiful. Cannot fault them on any aspect of our stay.

An overnight stay at the hotel which is conveniently located in the centre of Sydney. The hotel was clean and the room was beautifully renovated. The staff were helpful and really couldn’t fault the hotel. There are plenty of food shops within a 5 minute walk around the hotel from Chinese, hamburgers, Sushi , pubs etc.

Stayed four nights for Netball World Cup. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The bed was the best I have come across in a motel or hotel. The Wi Fi connection was good and had no problems connecting. I would stay here again if in Sydney.
