Stayed here recently in a family sized room. Great location walking distance to central. The kids loved the fish in the foyer and the swimming pool. Room was tidy and enough room for what we needed. We had thought about booking an apartment hotel, but by staying at Rydges we saved over $600 for a 3 night stay. Excellent breakfast,...

We booked a mystery room through a booking agent and we landed Rydges Sydney central. Was a little nervous as we had asked for 4 people and the description did not ease my nerves. When we checked in we where very quickly greeted by a staff member who helped with our luggage from our car to the foyer. When I...

I've stayed here many times over the years. For starters, it's a great location right near Central Station. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the quality of the food is good. The rooms are comfortable (great beds, nice pillows!) and overall good value. The hotel is currently undergoing an upgrade to make things even better.

I booked this hotel for an overnight visit to sydney. I wasn't too concerned on facilities, just wanted a nice room for a good price. I was blown away with the service, the well appointed ( and designed) rooms as well as the stunning guest facilities. Now parking in sydney sucks, so expect it to be pricey no matter what!...

The Hotel is nice. It's very central. They gave me a fruit platter but it took the cleaning staff days before they removed the dirty plate. They make your bed. Don't replace your dirty drinking glasses, coffee cups or even refill the coffee and cream. Pillows is terrible, TV has got a Standby light that shines in your face all...

Stayed here with the wife for a night out in Surry hills. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The location is easy walking to Central Station and also Surry Hills Main Street full of cafes and bars. The team on reception were very friendly and welcoming. Couldn't expect more and would return for our next escape into Sydney.

The new Rydges Sydney Central is in the building formerly occupied by the Sebel, which has been extensively refurbished. My room was new and comfortable, with just about all of the features that one expects in a high-end hotel room, except for a shaving mirror and real coffee rather than instant. And except for quiet. It was like the traffic...

The Rydges is located a short walk from the Central Railway Station from which you can access anywhere in Sydney. It is a leisurely walk to Allianz Stadium or Hyde Park. The service is as usual excellent and the rooms comfortable for a stay in our case a week. The food choice at breakfast was great with something for all...

Love staying at the Rydges in Surry hills. It is a short walk to George street and the SCG is also walking distance (roughly 20min). The hotel i find is quite affordable also, good value and the breakfast is pretty good 👍🏼 wicked burger place at the top of the hill aswell!

Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”.
