Rydges is a great option in this price bracket in this central part of Sydney. The rooms have a bit of style and are cosy and pretty. The staff are really helpful. It is big enough that they can deal with all your concerns. Nice breakfast too!

Located in a very busy part of town, entrance is quite small from the street so parking can be a challenge as you must offload ON THE STREET and then hand the keys over for valet parking. If there are coaches present, then good luck! Polite and helpful staff. Rooms are clean and functional, not spectacular, but value for money... 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

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 The rooms are basic and pretty outdated, although they do have very comfortable beds and pillows.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.

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
