As I selected a cheaper room to lay my head down for a night, the view was over the back of the property which is not most attractive. Saying that, it is the bed I was interested in and the rest of the facilities. King size good quality bed and a BIG room for a standard price package. Very conveniently... More

Great location to get about! Right next to central station and its 5 mins journey on the train up to circular quay. Sauna was broke which was disappointing. Jacuzzi was good. One of the receptionists similar in age was very kind and helpful however the other staff members treated me and my boyfriend like we were kids. One night we... More

Great staff member Jimmy. Every time I needed something he was there willing and eager to help, no issue to big or small ... Just fixed, no fuss. Jimmy has gone above and beyond to make my stay at Rydges Sydney Central, my home away from home. He was so nice, greeted me by name every time I walked in... More

Pros: overall very clean. Crisp white sheets on bed. Lots of lighting. Black out blinds. Spacious. Food in adjoining Italian restaurant very good. Great location, right across from central station but also within easy walking distance from the CBD district. Cons: being woken at 8am with the noise of breakfast trays being pulled across the hall outside (clattering cutlery). Cleaning... More

Location is great, walking distance to Central Train Station. Close to great Restaurants and Bars, including one attached to the Hotel. Breakfast was good, alittle hit and miss. Considering we stayed at this Hotel as part of a "package" for the netball World Cup, it was disappointing that Fox 4 sports channel wasn't available to watch the other games. I... More
