I stayed at Rydges St Kilda for 10 nights about 2 weeks ago. I had booked into the hotel through a travel agent in London, UK, and due to flight times had requested an early check in. When I arrived at the hotel, around 7am, there was no record of my request, and in fact it took some time for...

The hotel staff are very obliging, so if you do have noise, they will most likely move you. A neat hotel, centrally located in Fitzroy St next to Café Di Stassio. We stayed 5 nights and the room was adequate, but poorly serviced 2 days in a row. The café served a good breakfast and dinner was also available from...

Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was spacious and nicely appointed. I loved the green incentive of $10 off food and drinks for taking care of your own linen. Very comfortable bed and so quiet. A very restful stay. The location was excellent within the St Kilda precinct and transport was handy to the hotel. Breakfast in the...

Rydges St Kilda conveniently located in Fitzroy Street, with many restaurants, pubs, and Woolworths for last minute supplies. The hotel room is clean and tidy. Decent bedding. Good night sleep. Free Wifi. Onsite parking little expensive at $22 a night. Staff are helpful.

On arrival at the Rydges St Kilda I was astounded by how tiny the room was. It didn't end there. The TV remote barely worked so i had to stand on the desk to change the channels. The bar/nightclub next door pumped music into the early hours of the night which was so loud that we might as well have...

I expected more from a 4.5 star hotel. Our room was booked with breakfast, cocktails and a pass to the Sea Baths. The staff did not mention any of these things upon arrival, nor did they give us the free wifi pass. Good customer service involves informing the guests of all these things upon arrival and not waiting for the...

Rydges in St Kilda provides a clean safe environment. The rooms are simple but spacious. The shower did lack water pressure and bench space but was functional. My only negative is the really slow elevator. The staff are present and unobtrusive and the Barista in the cafe is lovely providing good coffee as required. The location is perfect with the...

At 1st walking into the hotel from the hotel carpark, we were worried we made a big mistake in choosing this hotel. Hallways and elevator were a little dated. At reception we were greeted by a friendly girl so that was a bonus. Enter room.... nice! BIG spa bath!! Room itself was small but if the in room bath wasn't...
