        Good location and decent room but not very quiet and maintenance issues”
        The hotel is located very close to Central Station (3 stops away from Circular Quay) and within Surry Hills where you can find a lot of cafes and bars. Location is definitely an advantage. As for the hotel itself, the room was nicely decorated but there were some maintenance issues such as clogged bathtub, shower head dropping due to broken hinge or some sockets not working. There are two reasons why I would not recommend this hotel: 1. The bed is not comfortable. It is so soft, that I actually did not sleep well on it. It may be a personal preference but it's been probably the softest bed I slept on in a hotel in years. 2. The room advertised as 'city view' room is basically a room facing some buildings and street. I was on the second floor and could clearly hear cars passing by. So it was not very quiet. Earplugs did the job but it is not ideal for a light sleeper. Overall good choice if you pick more pricey room (should be quieter) and soft bed. And I really liked the location.

        The location of the hotel is its best point. It’s a little dated and rough round the edges, but the staff are super helpful and friendly, and there’s lots to eat and drink in close proximity. We stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed it - would recommend.

        Nice room but traffic noise was annoying”
        Overall it was a little pricey considering the amount paid in other Australian cities on this trip, and the are the hotel is in seems a little rundown (not rough, just needs updating). The room itself was large and well appointed, but spending on better windows would cut traffic noise down. Staff were perfect.

        Average hotel in an excellent location, good only if you look for value”
        Value for money - one of the few inexpensive choices within Sydney CBD subway loop during booking. Unbeatable location - 5 min walk from Central station, despite gentle slope. weak shower water pressure - improved after complaint but still not strong enough. No curtain in shower - Water spill outside shower Poor housekeeping - didn't replenish some amenities, placed (more likely kicked) left/right side of our shoe to different corners on few occasions. (Free?) basic breakfast - basic hot/continental items, but the restaurant is big, no need to queue, and seems to be included in all available rates I saw. Chinese tourist group - Lobby get busy quite often. Small windows - Almost useless.

        Construction and constant noise... a stressful stay ”
        Loved the new refurb styling and the facilities are fab. Personally I love a sauna and jacuzzi, and the location is so central, it's perfect for me. I had a small issue with the noise and construction on the first morning, but a kind staff member resolved it immediately. She was very professional! I was moved to a new room. I feel possibly they could have not placed me in a room so near to the construction zone would be my criticism - the hallways were unclean with construction dust (the rest of the space was very clean). This let them down massively in my experience...

        We stayed at Rydges Central because we had stayed at this complex years ago - when it was called The Sebel, Surry Hills. The room was very quiet, but the hallway to our room was grotty and unclean. Room service trays stayed on the floor outside some rooms, including ours for a few days. Although I must say room service was exceptional, meals were amazing - we loved the Italian flavour. It appears some renovating, ie. painting was going on. Despite this walking the hallways to Room 611 was very depressing. There was a black shawl left on the floow against a wall for two days. The bathroom although, clean needs extra work ie. remove mould from shower recess (its one of my pet hates). All staff were friendly, including the lovely lady who bought us milk as it wasn't replenished that day and then coming back later with a breakfast room service menu. Parking was and still is a nightmare, luckily we walked the whole time during our stay. The location is great for functions we attended ie. Moore Park and its close enough to the city to walk.
