Guys I went to Melbourne on the night of Cricket's World Cup. Unfortunately they were short staffed and did not match expectations of serious first world hotels. How hard can it be, when you advertise "World Cup Final on our Big Screens" to put the sound on? Yeah, 20 minutes after the game they did. That is not good enough.... More

I could not fault this place, clean,comfortable, convenient with a very helpful, efficient and friendly staff. The breakfast was of a high quality and I wished I could have stayed longer. The only thing I cannot comment on was the price as it was booked for me.

My initial impression after arriving at 2am was that the rooms are basic. Nothing spectacular, so i figured i'd sleep on it. Still average when i woke up though. I went to the gym 2 blocks away on a comp from the hotel which was awesome. Breakfast at the hotel is really really good. The restaurant staff too are awesome.... More

We were travelling around Australia and the Ridges hotel was the worst hotel we stayed in. On checking in we were asked if we wanted to pay for breakfast, however this was included in our booking, we showed the receptionist our paperwork and she said she would get back to us. There was no contact so we went back to... More

Enjoyed my stay at Rydges Melbourne. Great location! The free wi-fi for all guests through the property is a real bonus and very fast. Loved the buffet breakfast. Staff were excellent and very helpful.

Pros: Great Location. Good Quick Free Wifi. Helpful Friendly Staff. Clean Room well serviced daily. Good Buffet Breakfast (almost to Hilton standards). Great View from floor 22. Cons: Rooftop Pool Smaller than expected.. approx 13m - no good for laps. Bathroom tiny, not even room for one person to stretch their arms out; can't use low powered shower without soaking... More

I enjoyed another great short stay at the Rydges. Room was smallish but I did get it on a great deal and as I was only staying one night it was fine. Room was very clean, bed very comfortable and staff excellent as usual.

I stayed here for a conference that was also held at the hotel. The conference facilities were good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and also very clean. The hotel is in a great location, close to lots of restaurants, China town, Emporium and the rest of the CBD. The breakfast buffet was excellent!!!!
