My family stayed in this hotel for four nights in January 2015. The location of the Hotel is a big advantage. It's only a 10 minute walk to china Town. 15 minutes walk to darling Harbour, 15 minute walk to Town Hall Station and 20 minutes walk to circular quay. It's located right in the centre of Sydney surrounded by... More

Excellent downtown location, walking distance to Darling Harbour. Clean rooms. Concierge staff exceptionally helpful. Friendly staff. Value for money. Should have "a la carte" breakfast since we all do not want a heavy breakfast.

Situated in the centre of Sydney, it was a perfect location for us. It is less than five minutes walk to the train station and only 20-30 minutes walk to the Harbour/Opera House. The room was spacious and had all amenities required, comfortable bed and free internet; which was great. The cons: the housekeeping was not consistent and the odd... More

Stayed here for two nights. It was a very pleasant place to stay. Very convenient location, and reasonably priced. Internet was not very fast, however it is free, so I can't really complain. Only parking is valet for $60 a night. Overall a great peaceful stay, will definitely be back.

Dear Alexme 18 Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback on your recent stay and bringing the issue of cigarette smell and ashes to my attention.

I read reviews before staying, which may have helped my experience. I found an Executive King room at a great price online, and when Rydges contacted me about room preferences, I asked for away from the street and recently refurbished. They delivered both, and the room is whisper-quiet (the only noises come from the AC and frig), large (28 squares)... More

Stayed here for the 2nd time and highly recommend if visiting Sydney. Within easy walking distance of Darling Harbour, China Town, Paddys Markets, Hyde Park, Sydney CBD etc. There are numerous other restaurants, pubs & cafes within strolling distance also. All staff were very friendly. Our room was on the 19th floor looking east at other buildings - not much... More
