Great room with a balcony and a view. Wonderful location. Room clean, bed excellent. Shower hot/cold controls not adjustable - advised staff on checking out. Staff not overly welcoming. Restaurant food very good.

I recently stayed for 4 nights at this hotel. The hotel has a great location. It is on the doorstep of Brisbane Convention Centre, and within the walking distance to several attractions (museums, the man-made beach, riverside restaurants, and parks). Traveling from the Brisbane airport to the hotel is very easy by train (the nearest train station is only a... More

Terrible experience. I had several business conferences to attend with my business partner. We requested a quiet room so they placed us away from the bar on level 11. But they did not inform us that they were holding a school formal on the level above us which had our room vibrating. We requested to be moved to another room... More

This hotel is readily accessible from the Airtrain, direct from Brisbane Airport, only a 2 minute walk from the station to hotel check in. And it also offers direct access to the Brisbane Convention Centre. Lots of decent restaurants around, and really close to the Southbank walking path which can take you all along the river, around the city centre.... More

We stayed at Rydges for a birthday weekend. The hotel itself is four star, the position five star. We stayed on the 7th floor which gave us a great view of the city skyline. Ask for as high a floor as you can as the views from the top are fabulous. The bottom floors' views are obscured by a building... More
