    Rydges Melbourne Hotel, Melbourne
    Motel Feel
    It was not a good stay. The good was the location in the CBD (don't plan on sleeping in late because the construction in the area starts at 7AM like clockwork and ear plugs won't helps but it's Melbourne so that's expected) and the bed was comfortable. The Bad was the room was really small, very tight quarters. The Bathroom was horrendous, it was tiny as well and the door doesn't open all the way. The tub needed to be replaced, it was literally 3 different colors, peeling and rusting. The area surrounding the toilet the was dirty and brown, very visible that it needed to clean. Multiple towels filled with hair, so I had to request new ones. I found the place atrocious, felt like a motel and I will never stay there again. O yeah, there cold buffet breakfast cost $32...sooo not worth it.

    Great family hotel
    Great stay. We had family spa suite which suited us well. A queen bed with a partition, living room with sofa bed for kids. Very spacious. Good breakfast. Easy to walk around Melbourne from here.

    Good but not good enough to return
    Good location, near China Town and plenty of eateries. We were offered an upgrade (except we weren't offered another spa room which we had originally booked, so decided to decline), free WiFi as well as a complimentary late check out, upon request which was a bonus. The room was of generous size but quite dated (i.e. tv, aircon, red wine stains on carpet) which was a bit of a let down given the price we paid. The key deal breaker was waiting 2.5hrs for toothbrushes to arrive. We requested this at 10pm and we did not receive them until 12.30am, after 4 phone calls down to reception as well as asking in person. We would have rather been told there was no toothbrushes offered and happily gone to 7/11 nearby instead of being told to wait. With no acknowledgement or apology after a tiring and frustrating wait, we will not return to Rydges despite the excellent service upon checking in.

    It was ok
    Room didn't look like the pictures. Hotel key kept not working and parking was expensive. Other then that it was a good hotel in a great location.
