    Rydges Melbourne - Exhibition St., Melbourne”

    Excellent location - close to shops, entertainment and find dining.
    May require extra front office staffs during peak hour check out time.

    Rydges Melbourne: The hotel’s standard and level of service have exceeded my expectations. Behind the simple but functional lobby are well-trained, experienced and courteous staffs. The rooms are very well presented with all the practical amenities available. The location is perfect – close to theatres, restaurants, coffee bars and top name brands clothing shops. European style dining at Lygon St. and American style bargain shopping at Bridge Rd. in Richmond are just a short bus or tram ride away from the hotel. Everything you can ask for within a 5 km radius.

    Friendly staff and affordable parking

    We stayed for 2 nights in melbourne at the rydges and was happy with the hotel, it was close to most tourist spots eg museum, old Melbourne goal and across the road from the theatre as well as all the restaurants if china town. the hotel has it's own parking garage and if you validate your parking when you leave it's good value, room was a bit small but with separate bathroom, pay tv and Internet acess it was good value, plus a rooftop heated pool, I recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Location, Nice Room, Nice Staff

    The Rydges hotel is almost in the centre of Melbourne. It is located close to China Town and a short walk to the busy Swanston street and Bourke Street Mall. There is a nice reception area and the staff were nice. I had a high room which was good, although with the hotel being centrally located most of the views are of other tall buildings next to it. The hotel was nice, clean and a good place to base yourself if you are visiting Melbourne, especially if you are going to one of the theatres across the road or just round the corner!

    The staff, The bar, The room view

    I stayed their for 5 days and overall i enjoyed it. The staff were terrific and always very helpful. There is only 2 complaints and they are the bathroom is tiny and the bed wasnt made for 3 of the 5 days i was there. My friends were in room 302 and its alot bigger room and bathroom and i wish i had that room instead of one on the 11th floor. I would stay in that room in a heatbeat. I would stay at the Rydges Melbourne again if given the same cheap price because the plus's outweigh the minus's.

    There was a great deal on, and I stayed two nights at a very reasonable rate, including a great breakfast. The "Think Green" option is a great idea if you stay more than one night, and the $10.00 rebate encourages you to use it. I enjoyed my stay and felt comfortable and secure. The room was well appointed, the bathroom had all the facilities and was clean, but it was quite compact. Quite adequate for me, on my own, but I was surprised that when you opened the door it hit the toilet seat. Great views from the 12th floor and very easy to get around Melbourne from the hotel.

    no major weakness

    Rydges provided the ideal location for our mini break weekend.Close to the Princess and Her Majesty's Theatres; it is within walking distance of all Melbourne has to offer.A comfortable hotel with a quick check in thanks to AGODA!Stroll to China Town to enjoy dozens of fine yum cha restaurants or go to Collins Street to find Italian gems.

    Thanks for sending me a graduation surprise!!”

    Staff, Value For Money, Location

    Wish i could write this sooner. I stayed with my dad in room 1311 from 31st August till 7th September. They were amazing! Thanks for the chocolate and champagne, and the card that you guys sent up to congratulate me on my bachelor degree graduation. That was lovely. I'm still savouring the chocolates as we speak hahaha. They're really yummy! I fell right to sleep after arriving at the hotel as the bed was so comfy and my dad received those amenities on my behalf. Wish i could say thanks in person! They were so accommodating with my requests, giving me a high floor and an early check in as i requested. Gave cleanliness a 4 as i found aged water, algae and rust in my boiling kettle which was a little awful to see. Thankfully, housekeeping sent a brand new kettle right up once i called. That's the only thing i disliked about my stay. Everything else was a two thumbs up. Quick check-in and got room keys immediately. Housekeeping made the room everyday replenishing everything. Thank you! Friendly and helpful reception and housekeeping. I would definitely be back to stay in the near future when i visit Melbourne!

    Great stay, superb room, and friendly staff”

    I had a great one-night stay at Rydges. The staff were very accommodating offering me early check-in and booking a free bus transfer to Southern Cross station which is on the other side of the City. The room was amazing with a full stocked minibar (quite possibly the best minibar I've ever seen) and superb views of the CBD. The bathroom was okay but not as luxurious as I expected a hotel of this calibre to be. The bed was so good, I slept for hours. The accompanying restaurant has a sports bar mixed with a fine dining feel, it's quite unique - and the staff there were accommodating. The hotel is located on the other side of town but is an easy 15-20min walk to the main CBD area (Bourke St Mall, Flinders St, etc...). Unfortunately, I wasn't able to partake in the pool and gym facilities. This hotel is expensive, but there is good value for money especially in regards to great customer service. I would highly recommend a stay here, especially for an extended period of time.

    Staff, Location and value for money

    Excellent, we arrived early at 7 am and we were let into a available room immediately..this was muchly appreciated as we had flown overnight from Perth. The staff were always friendly and helpful and the location was excellent as we were there for the footy and a show at Her Majesty's Theatre. Also got a good rate off of Agoda then our adult son decided to stay with us so for only $50 extra we were upgraded to a Executive King room with a extra bed. A lot of hotels will make you book another room at full price. Well done Rydges will definetely be back

    Location, standard of room, and cleanliness

    We enjoyed our time at Rydges; the staff were friendly and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Melbourne CBD. More free Foxtel channels would have been nice.

    Great location”

    The best thing about Rydges is its location. Right in the middle of the city, only a few meters away from the China town with heaps of food options. The room is decent, however the common areas carpet need replacement, it's really old. Staff is really nice, and parking is decent ($29/night, we parked in Sydney CBD for $50/night).

    Neatly made room and great service

    before i set off in Melbourne, i've been to few cities already and i thought i couldn't care what my room would look like since i only needed a place to sleep my head on. but Rydges Melbourne exceeded my expectation. it made my stay in Australia worth remembering. the service was really good that i do not have to call the reception two or three times.

    Fantastic Extra Mile ”

    We booked executive king room during Melbourne lockdown for 2 nights and we were given compassionate stay 1 night for our wedding. Manager Mitchell was so nice to give us free room upgrade to family suite and arranged welcome drink and wedding card for us. Staff are all very warm and friendly making us feel better despite of the lockdown. We will definitely come back. HIghly recommended. Cheers!

    Location, price & breakfast!

    My pregnant girlfriend and I enjoyed a night at Rydges for our birthday weekend as we had been given tickets to see 'Grease' the musical! It was perfectly located across the road from the theatre and right next to the vibrant Chinatown. Upon arrival we were upgraded to an executive suite and was offered a priority rewards membership which entitled us to a late checkout.....bonus!! The great deal we got on Agoda also included a fabulous buffet breakfast and checking out was very quick and pain free. Would definitely stay here again!
