We stay at this property to go and see Aladdin. Great location first room we were given the carpet had a big hump in it so it was a trip hazard especially when someone has a knee problem. Room otherwise was very nice. Breakfast next morning was average very old furniture food was very poor. Considering I stay at Rydges...

Hotels have all kinds of descriptions, and when one needs a refurbishment it's described as 'tired'. Well, Rydges Sydney Central is utterly exhausted, like a marathoner crawling to the tape. The foyer and reception is something of a deception. It looks pretty good and the staff are friendly and proud, as if the hotel is good, even though it decidedly...

This hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to Central Station, China Town and the Markets as well as Darling Harbour and the city centre. Great little cafes around the corner. Quiet room, very comfortable, very efficient staff. Have stayed before and will be staying again next time in Sydney.

We booked the hotel with very little expectations but were very surprised. We received an upgraded room which was newly renovated. Great location within walking distance of the city. The Brewery was exceptional. We will definitely be back.

We stayed here twice in 3 weeks for no reason at all. We first went because we wanted a night away with the kids, just for a change of scene. We loved it so much we went back in a few weeks time. The pool was awesome, the sauna, the breakfast and the staff were amazing. Always smiled as we...

This hotel was easily accessible from the airport and a really quick walk from Central Station. My room was clean and practical. Loved the pool and the meals were excellent. We held a three day business meeting on site and received excellent service (i.e. fresh water, clean room each day and meals served at scheduled times). Free wi-fi was fast...

Brooke checked us into our hotel room efficiently after helping me out with a minor problem - very helpful and friendly lady, she's a credit to your hotel. Very comfortable bed, beautiful shower and overall a great room. The only minor point I would like to make is that the swimming pool is very chilly as is the Jacuzzi! Thanks...

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
