Rydges on Exhibition St Melbourne is a great location, close to theatres and China Town, as well as many other restaurants. We stayed for 6 nights - the main thing we disliked was that there were no drawers or shelves for storing clothes - which meant we had to live out of a suitcase for a week; not fun.

What a fantastic location if you need to stay near China Town all go to the theatres . The accommodation is getting tired but the beds were comfortable. We stayed in room 2208 and think the swimming pool pump house might have been above us with a humming noise through out the night . We will stay there again but... More

This place was very good room wise as we got upgraded on check in so that was good and lady at reception very friendly. No concierge to deliver bags to the room was a bit disappointing. Breakfast in the restaurant was fantastic couldn't say the same about the burnt medium rare steak for dinner and fries that tasted like they... More

The staff are really great. Have stayed in both the Queen Suite and KIng Room on recent trips. The Queen Suite great if you have visitors as it has the separate loungeroom. The King rooms faced over the Victorian Parliament or the CBD with great outlooks. The only thing I can fault is some of the bathrooms are a little... More

My husband & I only stayed the one night, but were very impressed with the care of service from staff, from when we parked our car, to check in, to breakfast the next morning. Staff went the extra mile to ensure our stay was enjoyable & easy. The full buffet breakfast was delicious with lots of variety & a really... More

This is a great hotel. Central location just near Chinatown, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful rooftop pool and a great hotel bar. At first we were unhappy with our room, but were helped by Megan who was very accomodating and found the perfect room for us. This turned a potentially bad experience into what it is now one of our... More

The one and only buffet breakfast I had on the first morning was terrible so I never had another again, all the food was cold. having said that my wife... More
