The Rydges Sydney Central Staff are very accommodating. They are very quick in assisting us whenever we need something. It was our first time in Sydney and we wanted to go to the popular attractions within 3 days, Rydges is situated near most of the popular spots. Not to mention it is just few meters away from the Central Station which is very convenient. In additoon, they have bigger rooms as well which is good for family travellers like us. We highly recommend the hotel.

Convenient and relaxing ”

I have already booked again for my next trip to sydney in two weeks because I love this hotel so much, deadset one of the BEST hotels I’ve ever stayed in, extremely convenient with a 7/11 a very short walk down the road and access to sydney central station just a 2-4 minute walk away I cannot recommend Rydges central enough, it’s perfect for those who have business in the area as it’s right next to one of the bigger business hubs in sydney, with plentiful pubs and bars around with 24/7 shops, the room I stayed in was one of the cleanest and cosiest rooms I’ve ever stayed in. The pool and spa facilities are extremely calming and the buffet breakfast is one of the best I’ve ever been to- that said they could definitely use a lot more vegan options besides fruit, toast and cereal, seeing some vegan alternatives to eggs, bacon and the sausages they had on display would have been excellent and would make a good addition for those who require the diet for allergy reasons. Otherwise I’m extremely impressed with the extremely friendly and helpful staff and it was one of the most relaxing stays I’ve had in a long time, I left feeling extremely refreshed even for the 2 night stay I had. I highly recommend this hotel, it’s much better than a lot of the others in the area.

Our Opinion”

Comfort, Location & clean

In general the stay was fine but not over the top. We are members of the Rydges Priority Guest Rewards and have stayed in a number of Rydges before in NSW and ACT and the service was always really good and friendly. Our opinion is that the Reception staff were very friendly and "Rydges" like, the service at the rooms was nice and friendly, as well as the staff and quality of the food at the Italian restaurant and Breakfast facilities. Parking was too expensive and not convenient. Service from Concierge was not there and could not assist us with a simple request and treated the request in a pedantic way, inclusive of mentioning that the hotel policy was of not doing that, while explained that in Canberra they have assisted us with the cable as well as in Cronulla and North Sydney Rydges. The hotel is nice and the service from some staff need to be reviewed, especially when dealing with clients that enjoy the way Rydges normally service us.

Perfect Location!”

Comfort, Staff, Food

I have stayed at the Rydges Sydney Central Hotel several times and will go back whenever I visit Sydney. The staff are very friendly and I enjoy the comfort and quiet. Except for room 435 which tends to creak at night. The room service is a little pricey, however is very tasty.

Most memorable stay in Sydney. Room was very clean with crisp linen. bed firmness just right, very comfortable king bed. bathroom was prestine, like its newly renovated - all knobs are working and size was just right. room have full size sofa which was very useful since im with my 2 kids. The hotel staff are very accomodating and courteous. Hotel is a decent place to stay - good size lobby and well kept. Free internet in the whole hotel was very convenient too. the location was excellent, stone throw away from central station and a lot of eating places to choose from. value for money. I will stay here on my next visit to sydney.
