Opening in 2013 as part of the new International Airport precinct. Rydges Sydney Airport offers business and leisure travellers greater choice, convenience and comfort.

Developed at a cost of $70million, Rydges Sydney Airport is unlike most Sydney Airport hotels and, indeed, unlike most people's impression of an 'airport hotel'. While this new 4.5 Star Rydges hotel is right at the international terminal, it is much more than being about location, location, location - it is an important part of your journey, not just a place to stay before or after a flight. With an excellent restaurant & bar, gymnasium, broadband, WiFi and 318 well-appointed rooms and suites (all with the famous Rydges Dream Beds), the hotel is a much welcome addition to the Sydney airport precinct.

The Sydney Airport embraces Rydges fresh, customer-focussed culture and offers value for money, friendly service, genuine hospitality and exciting food and beverage experiences.

Rydges Sydney Airport

Modern Hotel, clean and tidy, no frills though (not used to English visitors no milk in the room with tea making facilities). Staff in Sports Bar were not interested, poor service, food was ok. I would recommend it because it is right outside the terminal so very handy and it was clean.

The best!

What a service, we could check in early (really early as we arrived at 7am!). Walking distance from the international terminal, you can even take your trolley up to your room. Comfortable bed, good shower, Wifi works well in the room. Elaborate breakfast buffet. The different receptionists were all very helpful. We truly enjoyed our stay and can 100% recommend this airport hotel.

It's located just across the International Terminal. Hotel provides free shuttle bus from/to domestic terminal.Very convenient. Room is clean and quiet, though it's close to the airport. Breakfast is also good. Like this hotel.

UItra quiet

Being close to the international terminal was no problem as we did not hear any of the usual airport noise. Quite pleasantly surprised at the luxury of the rooms too. Very easy access to the international terminal for our flight out.

Good Airport Hotel

We spent our last night in Sydney at the Rydges as we had an early morning departure. The hotel is conveniently located across from the International Terminal, a 2 minute walk. It is also easily accessible from the car rental drop off. If you are leaving/arriving at the domestic terminal, you can take the shuttle that the hotel provides. Room was updated and clean and quiet despite the fact that it sits very close to the runway. King size bed had a pillow top which was super comfortable. Wifi was available in the room and also at the lobby and was reliable and fast. There is a good size exercise room with free weights and machines. Buffet breakfast offered good selection. Great deal overall.

While booking, read the fine print for the room type. Mine had two separate entries for "King size" and "King size with breakfast package" and both were the same price.

Modern and convenient

For a one night layover, it doesn't get much better than this. Conveniently located across from the international terminal and with free shuttle to domestic terminal it was a snap getting to and from. The staff was friendly, rooms clean and modern, and even though it's right next to the airport it was pretty quiet. Would definitely stay again.

A one night stay

Other than the very convenient location, this is nowhere near a 4 star hotel. For example, the bath room is open to the bedroom area so if anybody starts the morning ritual, everybody knows it. The shower guarantees a minor flood. Service is surly in the restaurant. Front desk is OK.

Comfortable hotel convenient to airport

I booked at Rydges Sydney Airport because it was advertised as convenient to the terminal. There was a free shuttle from the domestic terminal (too far to walk) to the hotel. The hotel is just across the street from the international terminal so it's very convenient to fly out. Hotel was fully booked and since I had a Rydges Priority Guest card I was upgraded to a suite. Hotel was very clean and quiet despite being on a busy road. The buffet breakfast was very good. I would definitely stay here again when passing through Sydney.
