Website pictures/description misleading, horrible
Hotel is very misleading on the website. Pictures show updated, clean rooms. Not the case! Had to be moved into a second room after check-in because of a heavy smoke smell. Mildow in shower and wall, broken bath tiles, bath door knob pulled out of door, carpets smelly and heavily stained. This is what I got in BOTH rooms. Looked NOTHING like website. Not worth the price and would never stay here again.

Great customer service, sometimes poor maintenance
A very conveniently located hotel, but the heater worked poorly and some of my friends had to change rooms multiple times because of problems like the heater not working at all. On the other hand, the rooms are huge and comfortable. Would stay there again.

Disappointing Stay at Rydges Swanston Street!
Nice area (Carton), very easy to get around by tram from the Hotel. The staff were also very nice. Nice Breakfast. Unfortunately though, this Hotel is not really up to the Rydges standard, it's at least one star below. It has recently had the rooms and amenities done up, but we found it very noisey at night when trying to sleep. Hotel noise not guest noise. One night we had noise going on above us (hotel store rooms or something similar). We called reception a couple of time between about 11.30 pm and 1 am with the noise eventually stopping around 1.30am. Very disappointing and unfortunately because of this and the lack of urgency in sorting the issue promptly, we would never go back and stay at this Hotel.

short stay
The Rydges on Swanson was ok. The room itself was very clean and cosy the shower was amazing. The room was a bit small but accommodated us. The only thing wrong was the hotel was a bit far from the center of the city.
