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

Fantastic location

Getting out of the CBD and into Surry Hills is the best thing you can do. So close to fantastic cafes and bars and a short walk (up hill) to Crown Street. Always friendly helpful service.
