Rydges World Square Sydney Hotel
Ranked #63 of 182 Hotels in Sydney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 26, 2013

The rooms are fine. The bathrooms are quite tired and the corridors old and dated, but it will do for a night or two if you got a good price. The hotel offers rooms with two double beds which is good for travelling with children, although the beds are quite difficult to share. We ended up with one person on the floor each night (on lots of duvets and blankets).

The hotel's location is great, right on world square with Coles, food courts and shops right underneath the hotel. The hotel doesn't have a pool but a decent gym. Staff is nice.

we stayed at the Rydges on Jan 2 with our teenage sons in 2 rooms next to each other. check in was prompt and efficient! staff are very friendly. Hotel is in a great location, after our first night we was woke up around 7 with a banging noise, I contacted reception, and they changed our rooms to a higher level and with a balcony which was a bonus. hotel rooms where lovely and clean with a nice modern feel to them. The boys enjoyed the gym facilities and it was good that it was open till 10 pm.
We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel you can walk outside of the hotel and to the left and there is kazz cafe-deli which serves awesome brekki and lunches.
From the hotel you can walk everywhere, to the Rocks circular quay, which was amazing. ferry to Manly.
Paddys Markets,shopping is great westfield skytower, aquariam was fun. metro just outside the hotel. Overall when we come back to Sydney we would stay here again.

I stayed here about two weeks ago with a friend on holidays. Staff were very nice and helpful, whether it was hailing a cab for us at 4pm or printing off some documents at 1am.

We requested extra blankets, and they were brought up straight away. Didn't eat in the resteraubt but got room service which was nice if overpriced.

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice clean and tidy room, quiet, (we were on level 14 which is the fourth floor and once you closed the balcony door the noise level dropped dramatically.

I wish there was a pool though.

I have said before that it is the staff that make or break a stay in a hotel. Our experience of the staff at this hotel was very positive. They were very welcoming and accommodated our needs. The valet parking arrangements are great as were the staff that attend to this. The hotel itself was pretty good. 19th floor with balcony. Corridor was a bit musty, room clean but the lighting could be improved. The Rydges famous dream beds were disappointing this time. I have really liked them in the past, but this particularly one was not comfortable. So overall, a good location with great staff.

Great location to use a base for shopping, visitng city friends, hopping to a beach or two, lunches , dinners, cinemas, theatres, opera house. The reasons are many for staying in the city at Rydges World Square. We mainiy went to the beach or shopped at David Jones, visited friends and became the resident surf club. By the way, Rydges best indulgence is ROOM SERVICE! Pure luxury and all this is fair dinkum, rydgie dig folks.

Stayed for one night. Booked on special deal where you cannot check-in before 8.30PM. Suited us fine as we were flying in that evening. Arrived at hotel at 8PM and was allowed to check in with no issue. Initially given a twin room although booked king room but was sorted out in no time. Nice and clean hotel in very central location.
