Rydges Melbourne Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We loved this hotel. Great room and great service.

was quick and easy to check in, room was great, had a nice rooftop swim in the morning. No hassles.

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.

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!

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.

Good location in the business district, close to shops, restaurants, etc. highly recommended

Good overall experience. Good location for a few days in Melbourne including events like the Grand Prix. Nearby restaurants and bars are fantastic.

Great location. Clean but small room. Would come back again.
