Bit disappointing

Service levels were pathetic, may be due to crunched staff levels. Endless wait while trying to call reception / housekeeping / .....No attempt at the part of the staff to make stay pleasant / convenient. They all looked very stressed, bored and under lot of pressure. The whole situation appeared to be a case of severely constrained staffing levels

First night stayed on 22nd floor, room directly under air-conditioning unit very noisy. Changed room to 19th floor next day no noise. Staff most helpful and provided outstanding service. Overall a most pleasant stay.

It was ok, nothing flash as per the Rydges expectation

We stayed there in a deluxe queen room. To use the word deluxe implies its something flash! The room was closterphobic. The toilet/bathroom was tiny and not well planned. There was minimal ventilation in the room. When we would retire back to the room at the end of the night, the staff never acknolwedged us...they were playing on Google.

Great location, friendly & efficeint staff

We came to Melbourne for shopping & eating. Rydges was perfectly located for both. Our best meal was at Longgrain less than two minutes walk from the front door. Also within walking distance were the popular cafes & restaurants on Flinder Lane. We will be back!

Fantastically comfortable bed- amazing couple of nights sleep. Staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. Restaurant good quality for evening meal, but not tried breakfast. Gym equipment very limited. Bathroom small but clean and perfectly functional. Quite expensive but well located and would definitely return.

Weekend Break

Bathroom was on the small side,shower was small and the curtain didn't stop the water flooding the floor. Otherwise the room was very comfortable and enjoyed the choice of having the room serviced or not. The bar area was pleasant experience with great service.

Value alternative

We travel to Melbourne quite often and like to experience different hotels. We found Rydges in Exhibition to be very good value. The room was small and the shower/toilet tiny but it was quiet and the bed comfortable. The hotel is in a great location and the breakfast compares positively with other options.
