I stayed the night at Rydges Sydney Central on a night out with friends. It is very well located a 5 minute walk from Central station, so it is very well located for tourists and business travellers alike. It is also next door to an excellent burger restaurant ;-) The staff are welcoming and friendly, the check in and out...

Great location re transport and access to restaurants and places around Surry Hills. It had all I required for a business trip with onsite restaurant, walking distance to my required location and lots of cafes. Hotel was quiet considering its location.

I stayed here for one night as a birthday treat and break from 17months of sleep deprivation from my baby boy! I requested a standard, quiet room away from any construction and on a high level. I was pleasantly surprised (after reading some quite negative reviews on trip advisor). PROS Helpful and polite staff on desk Clean spacious room (despite...

We had an enjoyable overnight stay in mid March at Rydges Sydney Central. The hotel is a very easy 3 minute walk from Central Station.

A hotel in a great location at a very affordable price, reading some of the negative reviews I thought I must have been at a different place. My room was big, modern and spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and attentive and their booking/ checking in systems impeccable.

Not what you would expect for the price you pay, the rooms were freshly renovated but still had all the dust from it all over, the concierge desk didn't even acknowledge us when we walked in we actually had to go up to them. The rooms are very spacious though

We stayed for 3 nights in the most basic room they had here. The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to Central Station and the Light rail. The room itself is very large and the shower was big with good water pressure. The tv had about 15 channels, but our remote was old and the buttons needed to...

Stayed here for one night, and was possibly worst nights stay I've ever had in a hotel. The hotel needs some serious upgrading in terms of sound proofing rooms. Every time the lift door opened, I could hear it. And the room next to me, you might as well not have a wall, could hear every conversation and every song...

Stayed a week for business. Loved the pool and gym facilities. Room service menu could be of a bit more variety, but still very nice food. Staff were accomodating and nice bar downstairs. Room was clean and nice decor. Highly recommended to everyone.
