    • 2.0.Poor

      The pone in the room was not. working. I reported it to the Reception. When I returned in the afternoon, the phone was still not working. I again asked a second time. Again it was not fixed. I then demanded an explanation on the third day and was advised hat it cannot be fixed... took a while to tell me. I needed the phone to make calls.

      Average Stay in Prime Location

      Rydges Melbourne is definitely dated. The rooms overall are very dated. Customer service was average. Front desk seemed overwhelmed majority of the time. Location is prime but that's about it.

      A Quick trip on CNY

      Dear San Franciscan, This is our first trip to Australia, we learned a few things during our stay. Here we go: Early Check In - allowed upon request and when there’s ready room. Awesome ! Request for late check out? Sign up for hotel membership for free. Family Room - their version of second bed is a squishy sofa bed. I had to request to get receptionist for a change before it ruined my back. But they didn’t solve the problem until the next day. I was dissapointed with front desk team. Phone line - was out for the 3 days we stayed, i had to call through my cell phone if I wanted to reach to front desk. They send someone to take a look, but no follow up repair for the 2nd and 3rd day of our stay. TV remote ran out of battery, I bring it to their attention on first day along with the phone, nothing get done. The 2nd day we have to ask Housekeeping a bunch of list of same requests, and it got fixed. Except the phone line. Water bottle - Not Complimentary, it is suggested to drink tap water. Or just cook the tap water with the pot provided and let them cool. Bathroom- welcome to the 80s - very interesting layout. Need upgrade badly. Water pressure- good! It’s not a fancy ones, don’t expect Kohler brand. Front Desk - on our last day, do express check out. Because they are busy checking in other guests. But I don’t feel good coz I don’t know if they will randomly charge my card or not.. Plus I never get follow up email to confirm that there are no other charges.

      Rooms were worn. I probably would have enjoyed it less if they hadn't given me a good room location/floor. Kudos to the front desk. Check out line was very slow/long.

      Clean good service

      Staff were very friendly and helpful. We got a free upgrade as it was our honeymoon. Room was nice and cleann including the spa. The mian problem I had was the amount of hotel noise. Our room was right againt the elevators which were very noisy. You can hear the people above using the toilet and shower. Aircon is old and noisy though effecive. I suppose there is nothing that can be done about the city noise coming into the room. Buffet breakfast could be a bit fresher and hotter.
