Situated on the South Bank in Brisbane close to the South Brisbane train station so convenient for the train to / from the airport. Had a room on the 9th floor overlooking the river, so a perfect view across to the city, and no street noise. Close to the river foreshore with its own little beach, and all the restaurants...

Reviewed 22 February 2016

Excellent location, room was comfortable and quiet, staff were always friendly and helpful. They reward those who decide not to indulge in room cleaning by giving a $10 voucher off F&B - I thought that was very well thought out. The bathroom was a little basic in the design, but functional and clean nonetheless. I was a little disappointed that...

Excellent sized rooms with balconies, comfortable beds. Small bathrooms though. Very good breakfast and good place for meetings too. Small pool and not very personal as by the trendy bar area too. But just across the road from public pools. A must see and visit as a treat and very human space. Plus by the art galleries and museums too.

I like staying here at Rydges, it's so close to the amazing South Bank scene and for any event in the convention centre you just can't get any closer. The issue I have here is the lifts. They are slow. Tonight I arrived to a group of nearly 20 people (not one group) waiting for the lifts. The rooms are...

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the last 15 years, and the experience is always good.
