As I sit at the end of a long day in my 19th floor 'Deluxe' Queen Room I feel compelled to write my review. Given I will be leaving this hotel in just 12 hours time, I don't feel compelled to raise any complaints with hotel management but rather share my perspective for all. I've never stayed at Rydges Melbourne...

Reception was friendly and helpful and found a quiet room for us as requested. The room had everything we needed. The rooftop swimming pool is a nice bonus, so is the reasonable parking fee. Food at the on site restaurant was absolutely excellent!

Although smallish our room had everything we needed, loved the skylight night lights we viewed. Great bar service and breakfast being included was a plus for us. Downside was the expensive of carparking.

Reviewed January 17, 2016

The hotel is centrally located. The reception full of travelers coming and going. The swimming pool very small. The rooms seemed very old and indifferent. The Aircondition was old and didn't work sufficiently. When we arrived the weather was very hot, 39C. Breakfast buffet was good. Dinner ok. There was no safe box in the room.

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.
