Very impressed with the service and convenience of the hotel clean and spacious rooms,fast priority check in. The Italian kitchen and bar staff couldn't had been friendlier or more welcoming. Food was fast and lovely, we were travelling with a 3 year old and he was made feel welcome and special. The pool and spa was quiet and clean, room... More

Stayed here for business on a Friday and Saturday night. The hotel is in a great location, right near Central station close to the fantastic restaurants and cafes of Surry hills and easy walking distance to CBD, Chinatown etc. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. There is easy onsite parking and the staff are generally helpful.

We stayed here for three nights in July 2015. Check in was fast and efficient, they convinced us to commit to three buffet breakfasts - well done. Room was sizeable but tired. Dust on most surfaces and the door hiding the bar fridge had seen far better days. We never did get it closed - other had obviously tried more... More

Stayed here in July 2015. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms. Complimentary wifi was great. Breakfast buffet was acceptable but the spread was the same the 2 days I stayed...with the limited selection, it could get boring after a couple of days. Get a coupon from the front desk for a cheaper rate for the breakfast. There was a great burger... More

We were greeted well by the reception staff. Arrived early but they were helpful with the luggage and put it in the room for our return - thank you. The facilities presented as rather tired, the third bed for our daughter was only a fold out lounge, ok but not wonderful. The bedding didn't have a quilt, fortunately this was... More

Great location, very friendly and helpful staff and comfortable bed as well as good size car parks. We only stayed the one night but would reccommend staying longer as it was very comfortable. 15 minute walk to the SCG is very convenient also.

The hotel its self was good and overall a good hotel with decent facilities. We travelled with a baby 14 months and found the basic room big enough for him to have some space and move around. Would have been helpful to have a microwave as most hotel rooms do have microwave and would have been good for heating up... More

Recently spend two days in Sydney on business at this property. The Executive rooms are very spacious with decent views of the city streets. The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable which made for a good nights sleep. The location is close to Central station which makes getting around the city without a car very easy.

The Rydges Sydney Central was a real disappointment. The location was fantastic for my trip, and the rooms are large and comfortable (albeit very dusty, with a distinct lack of power points and obviously worn - chipped furniture, etc.) Unfortunately, the little things REALLY let the hotel down. What could have been a fantastic 6-night stay was ruined by small... More
