We stayed at Rydges over the Mardi Gras weekend and had a great time, hotel was close to shopping and restaurants, staff were happy to provide a late check out when asked. Very comfortable room, great beds, no complaints, would stay here again.

I enjoyed staying here mostly for the convenience of the location with it being only a 10 min walk from Central train station and less than that for everywhere else in the CBD. The room was standard of a 4 star hotel that felt suited to business trips and conferences rather than a family or romantic getaway but comfortable nonetheless.... More

A good hotel centrally located in Sydney. Booked it on line through the Hotel website. Check in was easy and the held my bags until I came back, and when I came back to collect keys, the bags were in the room.

Rydges World Square is a good modern hotel in central Sydney within easy reach of Darling Harbour, the Opera House and the Botanic Gardens. Our room was clean and comfortable, with all facilities, though with no view (we asked for and were given a quiet room, away from renovation work going on in part of the hotel). Staff were friendly... More

Stayed here overnight with a friend. I was thoroughly impressed with the service. I literally just had to drive my car up to the side of the hotel and everything else was done for me (parking, bags, check-in). I loved the express check-in option, all I had to do was get the key from the desk and head to my... More

There is nothing particularly special about Rydges World Square, but there is nothing wrong with it either. It provides good value and good service that you would expect from a group hotel of this type. Our room was large, fully refurbished and comfortable and the staff pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and will probably stay there again if... More

Wow - what can I say! The family room at the Rydges was fantastic. It was the perfect base for our recent stay. There was lots of space for family to spread out and enjoy the space. Lovely and modern and in great location with heaps of things to do in close vicinity. Only one comment, which wasn't an issue... More

I have been staying at this hotel for many times in the past years but for this time when I entered in my room and to my pleasant surprise that they have renovated the rooms since my last stay about 6 months ago. New furniture, added more ceiling lights which was really a big plus. In the past, the room... More

We stayed here 4 nights. Our room was a good size, everything was clean and tidy and the staff friendly. Breakfasts were plentiful although the coffee was not good. You could however order a fresh coffee which you paid extra for. Our only complaint was with housekeeping who took an hour to respond to a request when they said it... More

I have stayed at many hotels and this is by far the worst. The staff are extremely rude, the hotel rooms did not get made up. For a 4.5 star hotel this is pathetic. We were made to feel cheap because we booked on last minute. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone and I will never be back... More
