Good Value and location

For the price the hotel was clean, spacious. However I had just come off a 35 day cruise so anything bigger than a ships cabin would be spacious. Location was terrific. Walking distance to so much. ( I like to walk so that could be a 10 minute walk to a hour long walk) train was handy. only a couple of blocks. Busy neighborhood but not noisy. Room was clean and well maintained. Bed softer than I prefer, but not objectionable.

Rydges World Square Hotel Sydney

The hotel is a very clean and modern adapted hotel.It has a very good location in the middle downtown Sydney with easy walking distances to the Circular Square, the Opera House and the Botanical Garden. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It could not be better. We were very pleased.

Perfect gift! Perfect holiday!

It was my mother-in-law's birthday and as her birthday gift, I sent my in-laws to Rydges for 2 nights and 3 days. They were so impressed with the room, services, friendly staff members and food and in fact... everything, they said. Best thing about the services they said was the staff members who were so helpful as my in-laws don't speak English at all. When my in-laws were confused, one of the staff at Rydges rang me for translation and clarification. I was so thankful!!! Because of the fantastic holiday they had, I suddenly became their favourite daughter in-law and they have promised to send me and my husband on a holiday to Rydges World Square for our wedding anniversary soon. Can't wait to experience it myself!

Good location but nothing special.

Stayed in room 2055, was very disappointed , was expecting a lot more for a 4 star hotel. The lamp shades were water stained and were discolored, there was no smell however they looked very dirty and unpleasant. The bathroom was tiny with separate bath and shower. The shower frame looked quite old and had lots of old stains and marks around the base. The TV reception was also pretty bad. Although we didn't spend a lot of time watching TV the evening wind down was not so relaxing watching snow on screen. I noted that the pictures hung in the communal areas were very faded and dogged eared. Basically good location but nothing special.

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.
