I would say a very average breakfast on offer here. The hot breakfast had way to much out that if you took stuff from the top or even middle it was lukewarm or cold you had to dig deep to get the hot stuff. The continental breakfast however was really good the best mixed berrie compote I've had and the...

Spent a copule of nights in a family room (upgraded to 2 adjoining rooms which was great as we then had two bathrooms) in April 2017 school holidays. The room was good, with very comfortable beds, and extremely quiet for a city location given we had a room overlooking the internal section of world square (so no traffic noises). Free...

I stay at Rydges World Square on a regular basis and have always found the staff to be professional, friendly and always willing to go above and beyond. The hotel has a decent albeit not brilliant buffet breakfast but again the restaurant staff are great. Rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious. I often stay in an executive balcony room that...

Was impressed by the cleanliness and good condition of the room, bathroom and fittings. Everything worked. Only down-side was the noisy exhaust system that runs 24/7 in the bathroom (closing the door helps) and outdoor traffic noise (not extreme by any means but intrusive). Easy check-in and check-out, and good quality food. Easy access to CBD eateries. Wi-fi worked easily...

Stayed here with work and was absolutely impressed with the quality of everything from the food to the bed and pillows (most comfortable I have ever stayed in and I'm really fussy). Great central location, $5 craft beers in the bar, friendly staff etc...highly recommended

Fantastic hotel for a family. We stayed here last week in a family room, which consists of 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The rooms are lovely and clean, spacious. The beds are super comfy. But the best thing about this hotel is the staff. Everyone we encountered at reception, concierge, the bar and breakfast area were lovely and friendly and...

We've been coming to this hotel for years, my last review was in 2013. This would be the 3rd in 2017. We stayed here because of the convenient location and not because of the quality of service or the property. This time we booked for 2 consecutive week-ends because of the advertised "free breakfast in April". (see attached photo). The...

Stayed a couple of nights whilst on a business trip in a twin room on the 17th floor. Not much of a view in this particular room. Location of the hotel was good with plenty of places to each around and a short walk to the tourist attractions. The service was OK...I wouldn't say if was fantastic, but no complaints....

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.
