Great sleep in busy CBD

The overall experience was good. Although I had booked a discount promotion which gave the check-in time as 14.00, when I arrived I was informed that the check-in time was 20.30. However, the reception was very caring and allowed me to check-in as stated on the booking confirmation. The 20.30 check-in was confusing and not clear. The staff are excellent, the service great and it is a very enjoyable place to stay right in the midst of the CBD, in easy walking distance to 3 rail stations and Oxford St. Easy bust ride to Circular Quay.

Anzac Day Escape

We enjoyed the stay here at Rydges. The buffet breakfast was nice, however alot of the breakfast items such as bacon and scambled eggs were not kept very warm, therefore on return to your table it was just warm. Be prepared to walk alot to the attractions such as Sydney or Darling Harbour (its a fair hike) However there is a free bus which runs from George St to the harbour every 15 mins. Overall the hotel was a very nice place to stay.

Take the free bus service from George st to Sydney Harbour and on return catch it from the Harbour at bus shelter "D". Busses are labled "Free Shuttle " in Green.

Great Getaway in Sydney

Staff were wonderful and very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Staff thinking ahead for what you needed before you realized you needed it. Room was small but beds comfy and bathrooms large and quality fittings and furnishings. Restaurants were great value, good bar, great buffet breakfast and everything was very close.

Disappointment all round

Have stayed at this hotel before, and found an entirely different experience. This stay the room was smelly, beds not made properly, and no attention to detail for the little things like fresh bath mats, fluffed pillows etc. Staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. Rydges membership discount not honoured for dinner (there were 5 of us!) Don't think I would stay here again after this last experience. Shame, because location is good.

Great Greek Restaurant across road and about 3 shops along - walk downstairs and it opens up to a reasonable sized place. Excellent food, and terrific value for money.

hard to believe

room and bathroom: dirty! lots of hair on the ground, table had still stains, paperwork in room re-used so many times, dirty! AND: at 0.15 in the morning I woke up because there was an abseiling window cleaner outside cleaning my window on the 16th level! NEVER again! But at least the glass outside was clean!

one night stay

parking is a nightmare, and expensive. I asked for a non - smoking room on my booking, and got to my room and it was disgusting. on a smoking floor and smelled like a pub in the 1990s. I asked to be moved and was told the hotel was fully booked. When i insisted that i nominated a NOn smoking room and had to show i was upset, then a NEW room magically appeared on the system. Bad service, $247 for a 1 night with a Post 830pm check in. not great value

Great for our needs

Very quiet ,fresh and convenient . Close to transport and the city. My only critisism would be the shower could do with a really good scrub quite a bit of mould that a good brush would fix but overall 10 out of 10.

Perfect location, comfy beds, great bar!

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Rydges World Square for a music festival and absolutely loved it! The bed is so comfy the bathroom is modern and clean and we loved the bar downstairs for pre drinks before heading out to town which by the way was on the doorstep. With woolies right under the hotel + great shopping and restaurants and bars nearby you couldnt ask for much more! Will definitely stay again!
