Rooms are very good, but the parking system and 2 basement levels were confusing and annoying. Eg, car in B2, attendants with the keys on B1, and 2 of the lifts jump from 2nd to 10th floor. 1.9m car roof clearance bar hit my car too.

My husband and I stayed here for my birthday weekend and I really can't fault the room.... We had a one bedroom suite which was clean and had a fabulous large spa in the bathroom. The bed was extremely comfy and the mattress was superb! Only down side was that our toilet kept half flushing itself during the night which... More

Stayed here with my wife for a night over due to appointments. What a fantastic view (14th Floor) and the room was very spacious and I decided to have chocolate coated strawberries on arrival, what a great choice, they were beautiful. Attended the Locanda Restaurant and ordered a 300g Fillet Steak and the chat potatoes as a side and was... More

Location is fine but the rooms are tired. Old scratched up fitments, housekeeping not really good either with a dirty bottle and sock left under the chair from previous guest. Bathroom felt grimy basically this is a property well well overdue for a refit. In balance, staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast at $35 though was unimpressive. I wouldn't... More

We booked late, like 15 minutes before we arrived, due to a muck up with another hotel. The Rydges people, from the phone call with the reservations lady, to our car parking in the basement, to our acceptance at reception, to early entry to the room, went seamlessly. It was a great piece of work. Our stay was great for... More

We had a room under a special of "buy Sat night get Fri or Sun night free"... For this special I would definitely return if I could get a room again at this price...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
