Over all the hotel was good, but just good. First off the mattress was terrible. On side near the phone where the salesmen sit to make appointments, the mattresses was caved in. I made several request to the hotel to have it turned and it never was. the bathroom fictures were loos to the point of almost falling off. The... More

We had been gifted breakfast here. They made us book a slot at 7.30am which seemed ridiculous. Then when we arrived they didn't even ask our name for the booking making us feel like we could have gone at any time! Breakfast was fine. Standard hotel fare really. Very central to town.

We stayed last weekend for just the one night. Chose the hotel based on the ability to sleep our family of 4 (we ended up with a king bed and sofa bed) and I refused to pay over $300/night so we didn't have many options in the CBD area. Location is good for Central station but otherwise not a whole... More

We ended up at Rydges Sydney Central via the Wotif Mystery booking. I had tried to call Rydes THREE times the morning of our arrival to update our estimated check in time, and was put on hold for 10+ mins each time - perhaps someone left the "do not disturb' button on? Gave up. Upon arrival the woman at reception... More

The hotel presented as a little tired despite a refreshed bathroom and ownership change. This hotel is in desperate need of decent insulation and double glazing. I had a room fronting Albion St and was extremely noisy being disturbed by traffic noise throughout the night. Not helped by council worker using a leaf blower at 6am across the road.

We arrived at the hotel at about 10.30. We paid a little extra to check in early and did It online- very convenient. Got the room at about noon. Stayed one night in a superior room. We had a king bed and a sofa bed for my son in the room. The swimming pool's temperature was a tad cold but... More

I booked a night’s stay here via a Mystery Booking through WotIf.com At first I arrived and was told that parking would be $26, which I accepted, yet at the time of check out, they tried to charge me $40, and wanted to know who had told me $26 (sorry, I don’t remember everyone’s name I deal with at the...

Stayed on a busy Sunday night over the weekend and enjoyed my quick stay. Was greeted by bubbly reception staff on arrival and check in was easy enough despite my room not being ready which was no problem as they held my bags and pointed me in the direction of a nearby pub for a beer which always works well....

I wasn't expecting the Ritz but I did feel that this hotel let itself down. I had to ask in both days for my rom to be made out as it had clearly been forgotten and the public corridor on my floor was clearly not cleaned while I was there - a rather stale crisp sat on the sofa for... More

I am very pleased the Front Office team looked after you... More

After a convenient walk to the hotel from central I was drastically dissapointed upon entering the rydges hotel. To say staff where rude is a understatment. Big rooms and convenience is let down. I have spent extended periods of time at world square rydges for work but will not be returning to central.
