Stayed at this Hotel for our wedding anniversary for the 3rd year in a row. Had booked a "City High Dinner and Breakfast" package on line, and followed up with a phone call to organise flowers, as it was our 40th anniversary. Found the booking process very easy to organise, the parking easy, and check-in process simple. Was met at... More

I popped over to Melbourne for a concert at Rod Laver Arena and needed somewhere within walking distsnce. I'd stayed at Rydges Melbourne previously for work and I wasn't disappointed. They had a great special and I loved the online check in option I was given via email. Staff at check in were friendly and welcoming. The room was clean... More

I should point we had booked a king room so the size was huge and the bed super comfy. The size of the bathroom left a little to be desired but the helpfulness of... More

Room was clean and comfortable, but disappointed with the size of the room. Had a twin share which had very little walking space in the room. For a Rydges hotel I expected more. Free wifi was an attraction but so slow in the rooms it was a struggle to use it.

Room (queen deluxe) was nothing too exciting, a little tired looking and not overly large. The bathroom is tiny - can't open the bathroom door fully as it hits the toilet. On the plus side every staff member we encountered was great and the room was clean. The bed was one of the softest I have stayed in, although it... More

A beautiful stay. Concierge were more than helpful, we needed a room upgrade and they straight away organised it. Family friendly & central to the Melbourne CBD. Will not stay anywhere else. The Rydges hotel is a must stay at hotel!
