Easy stay business trip

Great location if you're planning to work on the outer skirts of Sydney CBD. I needed to head over by taxi to Moore Park each day, which meant I avoided much of the CBD traffic by staying here. Surrey Hills is a lovely suburb, too - good choice of cafes, hotels and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel (including Bill's - highly recommended!). Central train station is also within walking distance. The hotel room was comfortably and roomy. There were problems with the lifts when I was there, but as there are two different sets of lifts in the hotel, this didn't inconvenience us at all.

Amazing Stay

My husband, myself and our 3yr old son have just stayed at Rydges Sydney Central hotel for 4 days. I would like to take the time to say what a wonderful place to have stayed at! From the time we stepped foot into the establishment to even after we checked out we were overwhelmed in such a good way with the high level of customer service the team provided us with. They helped with tourist attractions to places to dine. A great team as a whole as they definitely know there city! A special mention to Brooke though, she was amazing not only to us but especially our son. She went above and beyond with him organising the fish to be fed, to just her interactions and kind words! He's still talking about her! Also to Daniel at concierge who provided us with a complimentary pram for our stay, which was an absolute god sent to us with all the walking we did! Overall I cannot speak highly enough of our experience and will highly recommend to everyone to stay with you! We will be back to stay in the future! The Lawrence Family

One night stay in Rydges Brisbane and Sydney

Both trips were work related not a lot of time to enjoy all amenities available, Brisbane stay was fine apart for misplacing my car, Sydney stay was booked on line, when I arrived to check in I was advised that because I booked on line my check out time was 9am this was not mentioned when I made the booking. Also when in the room tried to turn the TV on but could only manage to see the menue screen that kept flickering on the screen nothing else would respond on the TV. I advised the staff at check in desk of TV issue approx 7:45pm, when I arrived back to the room, TV was as I left it . When checking out I advised the staff of the TV not working during my stay they apologised for this , but made no effort to compensate my account cor this inconvenience. I paid the full invoice including parking for a room that was not fully functional.

Short business trip

For a short business trip, this hotel is ideal. Free Wi-Fi, in-house restaurant, conference/meeting rooms on site, Central train station a few minutes walk away (although you can't hear the trains from the hotel), and taxis close to hand.

Mediocre

Booked a king room- found 2 single beds put together instead as if it wouldn't be noticed. The train and street noise on level 4 was significant -noise proof windows would have been very appreciated. No info on hotel facilities provided in the room- have to ask reception everytime- all in all a very mediocre and UNrestful stay
