I stayed 3 nights at Rydges world square and it was an utter disappointment. The carpet was filthy, each day they didn't make up the room and when I returned from a long day of work conferences I had to ask for my room to be clean. The bed doona had an old, large brown stain on it from when... More

Really enjoyed a Sat night stay in Sydney at the Rydges. Valet parking only on arrival for $60 but no parking is cheap in the CBD. Room clean and well appointed. We had a family room which served us well. Friendly check in staff got us into the room at midday. Happy to come back.

First time in Australia and first time staying at a Rydges. Definitely nice hotel at a comparable price for the central district area. So much good restaurants around the area we didn't have to go far to find something good to eat. Lobby is nicely appointed and we got the breakfast buffet special. Decent buffet with nice selection of hot... More

My first impression at reception was that it was a big cold space. Staff were courteous and professional but not particularly welcoming. Check in wasn't quick due to us arriving just after a large coach load of tourists. The room was spacious but a little dusty (like housekeeping has just waved a duster around rather than actually removing the dust).... More

We have stayed at Rydges World Square on numerous occasions and always have a good stay. The location is fantastic, smack bang in the middle of Sydney's CBD. Walking distance to all Sydney's Central attractions and close proximity to public transport. On our recent stay we were upgraded to one of the suites. Beautiful rooms, clean and well serviced/stocked. Being... More

Room was dated and a bit tired. Staff were very efficient, but a tad impersonal. Breakfast was a let-down (cold scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes) - better to have breakfast at one of the cafes below the hotel. Noisy exhaust fan in the bathroom which seemed to run constantly. Location was the best thing about the hotel - close to public... More

The room was huge.. service was awesome and the whole place has a nice atmosphere in one of the best locations central to great bars and food. Parking is very reasonably priced for Sydney and the lobby is huge and relaxed. Definitely worth visiting and great value.

Rydges World Square is centrally located in the heart of Sydney. A short stroll in any direction will land you in the Mall, China Town, Darling Harbour, Surry Hills or the parks lining the city centre. As such the views from the room capture the buzz of city life. The rooms as a little more dated that its sister hotel... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
