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.

Great!

Rydges World Square is awesome! It is right in the heart of the CBD in downtown Sydney. It's close to the tower, and is within walking distance to the opera house and circular quay. Great staff. Great rooms. Great service. Stay here :)

fantastic front desk service

Front desk informed us that the hot water in our bathroom didn't work. They compensated us with free breakfast option. Also they let us use different room to shower. It's a little inconvenient but the front desk staff was very friendly and did a great job to make up the inconvenience. Hot water came back next morning. We stayed for one night only.

We loved the Rydges!!

We got the Executive room: it came with canapes & drinks in the evening & a breakfast each AM. OMG were the canapes ever good! So much to choose from, most were hot, most had an Asian flair; full bar. We both loved the Aussie wine, Hiraji's Spell. They had a bourbon called Slate that was so good I took a bottle home from DF. Mornings they had toast, sb eggs, croissants,yogourt fruit etc. There is an espresso machine for espresso and capps. Be sure to get the dinner special for $25 with free flow wine & beer. Excellent food. Oh,yes, Dream Beds in the exec rooms. We will stay there again. Location was very good, right on Metro & George St. Easy to get to Circular Quay & other sights. The Aussies are very friendly people & this staff was, too.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get the $17 AUD Daytripper Pass, which allows unlimited travel on the buses, light rail, & ferries in Sydney. You can get anywhere you want to go in the city; be sure to take the ferry to Watson's Bay, if only for the ride - the ride & scenery are incredible!

Convenient location

Not bad for the price. The room was comfortable - nothing over the top, but good enough to sleep in which is pretty much the only thing we did in the hotel while in Sydney :) The best thing was the location - right in Darling Harbour - very close to many tourist attractions in the Harbour and great restaurants in China Town. One block (probably even less) walk to get to the CityRail station.

Golden Century (Chinese) and Yumei (Japanese) were both nearby the hotel and excellent places to eat if you like Asian food (and within budget)! Not too expensive and the food was great.

Rydges World Square Sydney

The hotel is right on the monorail stop that circles to many of the tourist attractions. Many good restaurants right outside the hotel. The room was very clean, but the hallways need some attention. The conceriege was excellent.

Above average

This is an excellent hotel for the center of Sydney.Very reasonably priced, great location - would be good fit for both business and vacation. Big negative - restaurant prices are CRAZY. $32.00 for full breakfast -- with 4/5 restaurants within 500 metres charging less than $18.00.
