I have stayed with Rydges twice. I come here for the location as I used to live in the area so when I come over for work (every 2 months) I like to stay in familiar settings. The first time I stayed at Rydges was fine. Not much to comment on, the room was musty but the spa bath was... More

Quick review? Read the second last paragraph! This room was advertised as a deluxe king spa suite. We were so excited for a romantic getaway for friday night and meeting up with friends who were checking in with us for saturday night. After struggling to find a park....we headed to the lift and proceeded through to reception which was like... More

We had a great stay at The Rydges in St Kilda. The room was nice but the pillows were the only downfall, which made it a little uncomfortable at first. The breakfast served at the hotel's restaurant was amazing, and the staff were really friendly. It was nice to be so close to the trams, restaurants & bars. We would... More

I will say the same as everyone else. Great location. Thats it. Everything else was blah. - Parking - Great, but have fun finding reception (hint on the next floor up) - Mezze Platter, dont bother, dip with no crackers. Almost sacrilegious. - Customer service, blah. Dont ask for any help. There is a whole DVD saga i could go... More

Rydges St Kilda is in a great location with trams on the doorstep to get you to the city but enjoying the atmosphere of St Kilda.The local street environment can be a hint seedy with some weird characters on the street. Room was good for the price and dining options in house were very acceptable.

We were offered another room which we took and requested view of the street which staff were very nice in accommodating our request - loved the breakfast ate way too much bit dissapointed the...

The Rydges is well located on Fitzroy Street, a lot of resturaunts, tram line outside, about 20 mins to City. It's a short stroll to Albert Park and a beautiful 5 k walk around the lake. The Hotel itself is quite basic, the staff are not in the zone. The main reason for the 2 rating was cold water as... More
