Recent guest reviews

We like the convenient and perfect location of this hotel so we came back the 2nd time! As usual, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The room is big and very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay greatly and for sure we will come back again.

City center location. Clean functional hotel. Would stay here again.

This hotel is ideally located within walking distance to all touristy experiences. The hotel staff were more than accommodating, from allowing me to check-in hours early after arriving from an extremely long day of traveling to the housekeeping staff getting to know my preferences and putting 3 pillows on one side of the bed for me and leaving off the decorative throw for my 11 night stay!! Even the bar staff knew me by name and started to make my drink when they saw me. Great hotel with great staff!

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.

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.

Very well located. Fairly priced and did I say location is perfect?

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.

Wonderful large room, great decor, very clean. Wonderful location!

The room is clean and the hotel is conveniently located at Sydney's CBD.Front desk is very helpful. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and family members.

Good urban location, near monorail. Concierge was most helpful getting boarding passes for return flights. The computers for internet worked well. The bathtub was very deep, a little difficult to get out. A rubber mat would have helped. The soapdish in shower was too small to hold shampoo, conditioner, soap, washgel. Need another one.

A friend and I were travelling through Sydney for the night and chose the Rydges World Square because of its' proximity to a train station, not really knowing what to expect. We were overwhelmed; the hotel is beautiful and spacious, the rooms are large and provide everything you could possibly need, and the staff is polite and courteous.

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.

[...] price was great. Nice, friendly, great location with a mall downstairs that had cheap internet, groceries and even a place to get my shoes fixed.

The hotel was perfect for me for this week vacation. It was in a perfect location, good shopping right at the hotel and close to most major sites in Sydney. I a going to stay again when I go back next year. The room rates were good, BUT the expense of the "extras" is a bit over the top. A diet coke for example is $4.00. But as I understand it, thats how all the hotels in Sydney are so its expected.

Clean rooms and comfortable bedding. Impressive lobby! (No view, however.)

Easy access to free transportation. Great perks in VIP afternoon drinks/nibbles and morning breakfast. Location is close to a lot of the action in Chinatown.

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.

Close to Darling Harbor, China Town and easy access (free city bus) to Circular Quay. Lots of shopping available. Very friendly and accommodating staff.

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 :)

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.
