Rydges is a dynamic hotel brand operating across Australia, New Zealand and London. Despite its streamlined tower block exterior, guests at Rydges Hotel Melbourne are greeted with rich upholstered walls, marble fireplaces and a bold color palette of reds and purples. Dangle your calves in the rooftop pool and enjoy the surrounding Melbourne skyline, or try the juicy platters - by head food aficionado Paul Griffiths - at Locanda Italian Steakhouse. Business-types in Melbourne can recreate their favorite Don Draper scenes in the intimate and vintage-class Madmen boardroom.

Great location.

Three nights at Rydges Melbourne was excellent. On site restaurant was as good as any in the area and better than most. Fabulous breakfast. Ease of access to central city area was great. Pity about the $30 a day parking charge.

Convenient place and very busy (lots of people checking in). Hotel rooms are a little bit tired, but we had a pleasant stay. Will stay again.

Central location and a great 4 star hotel

Having read some of the reviews and given the low price I got the room for I was a little worried about what the room would be like. I had no reason to worry at all! I have stayed in a lot of hotels and this is a high quality 4 start hotel. The rooms were modern and very comfortable. The bathroom a little small but manageable. The location is great and the staff very helpful. The bed was very comfortable too!

need to be improved

it is not so convenient without free wifi, even at the lobby. And the reception service attitude is nice, but not enough. All the others are very good. And it charges me some other fees though not much, from my credit card without any explanation. i hope one email from this hotel could tell me the reason.
