Only thing was the walls where very thin... could hear one neighbour fart and talk on his phone. Then the other neighbours were clapping in some kind of rhythm at about 1am.

Good, centrally located hotel”
Good, well priced hotel located a stones throw from Chinatown. Great responsive staff. However there should be a little more attention to details such as providing milk with in-room coffee and tea making facilities. Also, one of the aircon switches was broken, making it hard to regulate room temperatures.

Always a decent stay”
Stayed here around 10 times - always a great stay as far as location and comfort goes. Just the 3rd party parking situation can be annoying at times and the fact that you have to validate your ticket at reception when you leave which is fine unless there is a Que of people checking in which can often be the case with airline crews that often stay there.

Does the trick”
I stay here quite often as it's a reasonably good location in the city for restaurants and bars and also a quick route onto the motorways without having to drive through all the city traffic. Great Restaurant/Bar downstairs in the hotel as well. Downside is no valet parking, parking is shared with public car park and sometimes you have to double park and give keys to the attendant, Twice I have gone to get my car and not being able to get in the drivers door due to the attendants/ other guests parking the cars so close together. You have to goto reception each morning to validate your ticket to get out which is fine when there isn't 10 people in front of you lining up to check in.

Fantastic location”
Staff very polite and helpful. I stayed in the queen spa room for 3 nights which was absolutely divine. Spa had very strong jets and was luxurious. The suite was a little cold at night but a built in heater is available to use. Right opposite Her Majesty's theatre and amongst all the shopping on Bourke Street, Chinatown and short stroll to the free city loop tram number 35. The only negative is that it was a bit noisy at night, which I thought that being on the 7th floor you wouldn't be able to hear from the street but that wasn't the case so I was disappointed with that. There was the choice of opting out of housekeeping and going green to receive a discount on food and beverage to spend in the hotel which is a great idea. Overall I was very happy with my stay and would stay here again.

Good hotel close to the city centre”
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!

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

I really liked staying at this hotel. The rooms were very clean and the hotel staff was helpful. There are tons of things to do at a stone's throw from this location including the sky deck.The location is convenient, just 15 min. walk from Flinders station and all other attractions. Also, the hotel is just outside the main street so there is no noise coming from outside. Shuttle to the aiport available for $17.Look forward to returning!

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).
