"Delightful"
We stayed here for two nights in an Executive King Room and it was delightful. The block-out blinds worked so well we slept in soundly. Given the hustle and bustle location, it was surprisingly quiet in the room. Our room was spacious, bed was comfortable, and the rainforest shower was amazing! We never ate at the hotel as there were heaps of choices within walking distance. Staffs were friendly. Would stay again!

"A stay with friends"
Had a late check in but that was all fine as we were busy in the afternoon. Great location. Were able to walk to dinner. Had an appointment in the morning so didn't have breakfast but the room was comfortable and had a great blind that blocked out all the light.

"Great location!"
A friend and I stayed here recently on our annual shopping holiday and found Rydges to be in a great location, the room was clean and comfortable, the staff were exceptionally accomodating allowing us early check in and we felt the floor we stayed at had been recently renovated. All in all it was a great experience! The only thing I will say was the room was a little dark with no natural light, apart from that- excellent!

"Comfortable, touch of luxury, but a bit pricey"
I stayed for one night during a short business trip. The hotel staff were very friendly and ensured the renovations on the ground floor did not impact guests. The room is reasonably spacious with quality bedding, furniture and fixtures. Unfortunately the comfort provided does not match the exorbitant price I paid for a one-night stay. I booked 5 days before my stay and I understand this is considered short notice, but a few extra perks could have gone a long way in enticing me to stay again in the near future.

"Almost adequate"
Booked for two nights. Price was very competitive given that it was a weekend. However, room was immediately adjacent to an area that was being refurbished. Every time we exited or entered the room we could smell paint and see drop sheets and tools etc etc. Not the glamorous romantic setting that I had been hoping to share with my partner. There was no mention of the condition in the online description and no warning when I checked in which I believe reflects poorly on the business ethics of the hotel.

"False alarms"
This is a well located hotel that I stayed at before. Unfortunately my stay this time was interrupted by false fire alarms at 11.00 pm and 4.00 am. On checkout the person behind the desk was somewhat insensitive on the matter. I would have thought all staff would be aware of the issue and apologised upfront.

"Crooked name-tag"
At initial check-in I was dealt with by Eliza. This girl was trying hard however she wanted to be elsewhere. The other reception staff also appeared to be overworked on this particular day. Eliza's name tag was hanging sideways (may have gotten her name wrong) . I tried to cheer up Eliza and delightfully said good morning to which she acknowledged in return with a half-hearted "good morning" reply. Otherwise the check-in was pretty much OK. Our room on the 12th floor was undergoing renovations in the gymnasium, with a strong odour of paint permeating throughout. The room was immaculate in presentation, well done housekeeping. The concierge service was also first rate. Overall an enjoyable stay, let down by a couple of things.

"Highly Recommend"
The motel is close to everything - right next door to world square, capital theatre and a short walk to at least 3 stations. This makes it east to get to and a perfect place to stay. The service was excellent and the room itself was exactly what I had hope for. All of the amenities were clean and working perfectly and the staff were always helpful and polite. I would highly recommend this place - I will def be back soon.

"Excellent Hotel Close to many activities"
I was surprised this was a great hotel. Rooms were clean, modern and quite roomy. The staff were friendly and it is in an easy walk of many parts of Sydney including Central station (8 minutes) Pitt St Mall (7 minutes) and Chinatown (6 minutes) The staff were very friendly and I could not fault the hotel unless it was the parking. $60 a day is far too much

"Lovely staff"
We arrived late and they couldn't find us in their computer as a booking, I was worried we were about to sleep in the street. We had booked a mystery deal on whotif so I was concerned. Turned out whotif booking hadn't made it to Rydges computer and they had to manually imput the booking. Not a problem. They got us a room but it had two single beds instead of a queen so they went back and found us a King room. Wonderful. Not only did we get a cheap room but we got a king bed. They also gave us a voucher for two free drinks at the bar. The room was excellent.

"Just not the same"
Avoid room 1220+. The hallways on lvl 12 smell very unpleasant. The bed vibrates (over the train line?) and a rumble heard through the pillow at least every half hour made it hard to sleep. At checkout staff distracted by chatting with concierge. Then did not ask whether the stay was ok. Previous visit was great, this time very disappointing. Topped off by downstairs concierge not being aware that buses no longer run on that section of George St.

"Good location, but my room was in need of some TLC"
The hotel was located in a great area, easy walk to Sydney CBD and plenty of eating options. I purchased the room as a secret deal, so it was undeniably a great deal. However I was stuck down on a floor in desperate need of a renovation. Floor 12, which confusingly is actually the first floor of rooms is old. Faded pictures adorn the walls (dated 1998 - clearly the last reno's took place) of the hallways, worn and dirty carpets, scuffed walls and floors, and a stale old hotel a/c smell. Internal room overlooking an rockery area, which was quiet. On my way in one night, I took the lift to a higher floor, and it does appear as though some renovations have taken place at some stage (or at the moment?) and it was clear the rooms were of a much higher standard. Upon review of their website however, all rooms are either classified as Deluxe or Executive which I can tell you floor 12 was not. They must be keeping this floor for the secret deals. I would recommend this hotel to a friend provided they managed to get a room on a more modern floor.

"City break"
Nice hotel, centrally located. Well equipped, modern dacor. Nothing more than a 4 star for me. Fell straight into the parking trap, reasonable room rate but with $60 to park and $40 to eat breakfast became an expensive night. I'd rather pay all up and know what I'm letting myself in for ... no surprises, no hidden extras.

"Hotel room is ok, but service a lot to be decided"
Hotel location is great,room is fine, but there is nowhere to put things away, as there is no drawers whatsoever. It is not a hotel you can stay for more than 1 night. The room safe is located on the top self inside the wardrobe, it won't be any good if you are short. If you don't use the safe, the safe door remains open and make rolling the sliding door of the wardrobe very difficult. It is really a nuisance. The room maids either want to clean the room while you still in bed or just don't border because the time don't suit them. On the day when we leave, the concierge said he insisted on getting a cab for instead of using the ones that were queuing in front of the hotel, and just wanted us to wait for more than 20 minutes for a cab he said he had called for us. This made us also missed our flight. I think the management should have a good look the way they run the hotel. I don't think they deserve the star rating they got.

Great in almost every way. A couple of exceptions are:- a used towel complete with makeup & a smell , supposedly clean, in the bathroom, service in "Ciders" restaurant in the evening was soured by two of the ladies, the newest trainee was sour, rude & unhelpful & the blond could curdle milk. Thank goodness for the other lovely dark haired lady & the young man working in Ciders.The pork ribs are a rip off, 6 on a board with limp rocket & nothing else. The steak was super. Still, overall a great place not to be spoilt by the above factors.
