good urban location

Good urban location, near monorail. Concierge was most helpful getting boarding passes for return flights. The computers for internet worked well. The bathtub was very deep, a little difficult to get out. A rubber mat would have helped. The soapdish in shower was too small to hold shampoo, conditioner, soap, washgel. Need another one.

Lots of good Asian restaurants within a few feet. 3 blocks away is old world charm of Queen Victoria shops and the Strand. Learn the bus system of Sydney. Take Georges St. as they come along very frequently.You can buy tickets at 7-11s too.

Excellent Hotel

A friend and I were travelling through Sydney for the night and chose the Rydges World Square because of its' proximity to a train station, not really knowing what to expect. We were overwhelmed; the hotel is beautiful and spacious, the rooms are large and provide everything you could possibly need, and the staff is polite and courteous.

unbeatable location

Would have been nice to have a pool or hot tub. Nice size fitness room which was equiped better than most. In Chinatown with a short walk to a train/monorail and bus station. Walking distance to sidney harbour and darling bay. Lots of great bars and restaurants in the area.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Sidney Harbour with Sydney Harbour bridge walk, worth the money and you can even do the walk at night whole bridge is lit. Express walk is the best of the climbs as you can see the interior of the bridge and can even touch the granite blocks that surround the bridge. The end location is still at the peek of the bridge. The other climbs you cant see beneath you as you are on an enclosed walkway. Express walk you are on open mesh walkways, climbing stairs etc., all while looking directly at the road or water beneath your feet.

Sydney Vacation Hotel

The hotel was perfect for me for this week vacation. It was in a perfect location, good shopping right at the hotel and close to most major sites in Sydney. I a going to stay again when I go back next year. The room rates were good, BUT the expense of the "extras" is a bit over the top. A diet coke for example is $4.00. But as I understand it, thats how all the hotels in Sydney are so its expected.

Fun Christmas

We were first time visitors to Sydney. Loved the hotel location - very near Chinatown, short walk to the harbour and lots of shops very nearby. Excellent restaurants nearby.

Sydney's travel options are just great. We used public transport throughout, with the combined ferry / bus tickets offering super value.
