No mention on cost of car park, messed around on front desk waiting for ticket validation. Believed for the cost the room would be a little better prepared. TV was very pixalated and outdated. Would recommend elsewhere. Breakfast inclusion would have be beneficial seeing the price.

Hi Paddy2229, I'm sorry to hear we were not able to offer you an upgrade, if we have a small number of suites available we don't offer these for upgrades - as we may be able to sell these rooms. We do offer happy hour bar snacks every Friday, my apologies our wait staff did not manage to make their... More

Great place to stay in Melbourne. The room was clean and comfortable and on the 21st floor with a good view. Easy walk to shops and theatre and train station across the road. The bar was a good place to unwind. Would we stay here again! You bet!

Will definitely use this hotel again! Great service and loved the well appointed, spacious and tasteful decor of the King spa suite. Easy access to eating options, shopping and other city attractions. Dining/bar area within the hotel was great!

I am satisfied with the good location to the public(tram)transpotation and downtowns. I think it ha good facilities for business trip and leisure travelling. Specially it offers a resonable price for a family room with 4 members.

When it comes to great service, location and price you can't go past Rydges in Exhibition Street. So close to everything in the CBD as well as the theatre precinct if you want to catch a show during your stay. If you choose to eat in, which is a strange thing to do in Melbourne, I recommend you try the... More

I travelled to Melbourne for a work function and decided to stay an extra night with my partner... The warning bells should have gone off when the hallway carpet was damaged and the wall outside our room was missing paint (and showing plater), when we entered the room the overwhelming air freshener smell should also have been a red light....

Rydges is an excellent place to stay with room opportunity based on value for money. We had the Kings experience, a room on the 4th floor. unfortunately we discovered by around 9.30pm at night that the room heater on the side wall was faulty making a rattling noise once it warmed up after the first 5mins. we decided to let...

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.
