Loved the fact our bags were taken to our room and we could leave there on check-out and collect... More

This hotel is nothing special but really does seem to get everything to meet your needs right. The true beauty of this hotel is that it is very centrally located for a few days stay in Sydney and is in walking distances from most places around this beautiful city. Customer service and focus was really very good, the rooms are... More

Central location and walking distance to trains & bus's. The rooms where clean and very comfortable. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance from the motel. We only had the buffet breakfast at the motel and it was very good. Worth the visit!!!

I really needed a hotel for the night and at the last minute. Thankfully Rydges had a great deal on a late check in and with my PriorityGUEST membership I got another 20% off which made it $134 - one of the best deals in Sydney on that night. The location is excellent - Crown Street is just up the... More

The hotel is perfectly located if you are travelling from the Central Station of Sydney. You can access the terminal in 3 minutes walking. The rooms are very comfortable, and the staff is very friendly. There are not many good restaurants nearby. You need to walk 5 or 6 blocks.

Love to stay here. Wonderful service (love the online check in), clean, stylish, comfortable, convenient location, bar food superb and inexpensive for Sydney ( all the better when you show your Rydges membership card). Never bother looking for other hotels anymore. We also love The Calypso cafe across the road for a basic, good value breakfast and great coffee.

Great location as close to Central station meaning can arrive straight from airport and later on into the city. Comfortable, spacious and affordable accommodation particularly if you are able to have breakfast included. Can be a little bit noisy at night if facing the street though (must be using the thinnest of glass in the window) Adjacent restaurant good value... More

This was my first stay at this Rydges- I usually get put up in Haymarket, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a koi pond below the floor in the lobby and a good, clean room with a good selection of pillows on the bed.

I've been staying regularly at the hotel since 2009 and during that time the service and quality of the stay had gotten better and better. The hotel is just one block from Central Station, from Central Station enables the city of Sydney to be easily accessed especially if you purchase an Opal Card. Surry Hills is a great area for...
