Great stay at Rydges
Location was good (only 3 team stops from Melbourne Central) and the tram station was right in front of the hotel. 7-11, cafe, KFC and Subway are also just 2 min walk down the street only. Hotel room was big with 2 queen beds and comes with a sofa chair/ table also, and still spacious. Service staff were also friendly and helpful. Swimming pool is small but doesn't matter since we can't swim in winter. There's only 1 lift but it's quite big and doesn't have to wait long also. Alternatively, can also take the stairs since it's only 4 storeys high. Overall good experience. Will definately stay again if I have the chance to visit Melbourne again.

Old hotel costing way too much
300 dollars per night for the most basic room type is way too much considering its old facilities. Only good if you are on business with the University of Melbourne.

Paper thin bath towels; bathroom door didn't fully close; bedside table lamp not plugged in - had to instruct tradesman to get extension cord and double adaptor as PowerPoint on opposite wall; powepoints half way up wall near bathroom - no use for anything at all; room old, shabby, tired and worn; no ramp for moving luggage in or out of hotel with ease; used tea up and water glass not washed by housekeeping during room servicing by housekeeping. Reception really didn't seem to care.

Not for the disabled
Hotel lacked wheelchair access or ramps which was surprising for a top name. Long walk from lift to room. Other than that the staff were quite apparently short handed and didn't appear happy nor welcoming. No smiles or conversation just purely down to business. Some complimentary bottled water in the room appears to be the norm in Australia. I liked the big comfortable beds and pillows.
