Stayed four nights in a family room, large rooms with dbl glazed Windows to keep out the street noise. Reception team were really friendly and welcoming. Rooms are really well kept and clean, shower door didn't close and within an hour of letting them know it was repaired and the team also came up later to see if it was... More

The location of the hotel is great and provides convenient walking access to the harbor, shopping, dining, and many other things. But we had a very large travel party and a number of people all said they had issues with the showers in the bathroom leaking water onto the bathroom floor which can then be slippery is not careful.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel Joel M, and sorry to hear that your experience was not in line with our typical high standards. Our decision to limit access to various areas of the hotel, during peak times, was with the best intentions. Our hope was to improve the flow for everyone visiting the property, whether... More

Recently attended a function at the ballroom of this hotel. Service was excellent. Staff made a real effort to ensure table groups were happy and the drinks were flowing. As it was a function it was a set menu but the two options for main were attractively plated and very nice to eat, deserts similar. Staff did not make noise... More

Executive King room was clean, nice & all the usual things provided. Service was friendly & all requests taken care of with no fuss. Valet parking very costly at $60 per day but seems to be the going rate. Room service food was delicious & reasonably priced. Would definitely stay there again!

Have heard many a good review about Rydges World Square, and my first stay there did not disappoint! Stayed in a group of 4 friends, had a fantastically spacious family room, complete with two bathrooms - perfect for 4 females all getting ready at the same time. Beds are absolutely amazing, had such a great sleep, and the black out... More

An excellent place to stay. Close to everything you can wish for. The staff are friendly and helpful. The service and food great and the beds to die for. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. I would recommend this hotel to all travelers. The price is also respectable.

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel many times, and while it's nothing groundbreaking or luxurious, it has been consistently good. Rooms are a good size, and many have been recently revamped. Location is excellent - close to everything. Parking is quite expensive as it is valet service only. In short - don't expect to be blown away,... 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.
