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.

I booked the Rydges through Trivago as I wanted something central with a swimming pool at a reasonable price. The location is very good - close to Central Station which makes an easy commute from the airport and other central points within central Sydney. A mixed experience with staff - some were super friendly and helpful. Others offered the minimum...

Room is nice, modern however I found staff rather rude. One piece of advice, don't go to the breakfast buffet, it's mediocre at best, we spent $100 and was left very, very disappointed. The quality of the food is less then a McDolands.

Rooms are well appointed, very comfy beds at the end of a long day.. great access to services. Very impressed with the care taken to make the bed a well appointed comfortable part of the room. Great bar next door.

No one to unload baggage from taxi. Rooms look modern and chic but no drawers for clothes and only one wall light none above the bed - if you wish to read then the toilet is the best place. Lifts are terribly noisy 24/7 - sounds like London underground.

The bathroom although upgraded wasn't in great shape however was tidy and our room was great. Had a swim in the pool and was lovely and relaxing until young boys came in with booze and were...

My husband and I checked in to Rydges hotel after a tour group so obviously that took a while. Then we had trouble with our keys several times. The front desk staff were focused on customer satisfaction and upgraded us and gave us a bottle of wine. We travel a lot and it's possible to overcome imperfections but employing the...
