    very good location, hotel to train station (museum station) walking distance just 3 minutes, airport link just few stop from airport to museum station took about 20min. Walking distance to China town, Korean town, Darling Harbour, Queen Victoria building, Hype park and St. Mary church... downstairs have a supermarket Cole open until 11pm and a lot restaurant and convenient store open until late night. World square shopping mall just downstairs the hotel. Very convenient for traveller. Room is big enough and clean. Perfect for first time free and easy traveller. The only thing cons is bed and pillow not that comfortable for me it’s too soft. Other than that is very good hotel to stay. Definitely will come back again.

    Easy Hotel for Sydney Shopping”

    Late December 2018 - took my kids - ages 11, 15, 17, 19 and my parents to this hotel for a few nights of sightseeing and shopping after completing a cruise together. We intended to do some Christmas shopping, prior to returning to Melbourne. Great hotel and location - walking distance to Pitt St Mall and Darling Harbour. LOVED our time at the Maritime Museum - a definite must if in Sydney! I don't recommend walking with kids, parents and suitcases in tow from Circular Quay - but aside from that we had a great stay. Clean rooms, lovely staff, good functional gym - no pool.

    Great place to stay but slightly annoyed...”

    The hotel stay itself was great. Staff were very lovely and helpful and the room was comfortable, clean and tidy. However I was shocked to find out that there was a bond amount of $300 to pay in case of any damages. Now I understand that a bond is required in case of damages but $300 is a bit of a stretch as I've always paid $100-$150 max. while staying elsewhere and I was also always warned in advance, not on the day of arrival. Again, understandable but wish I was warned about this earlier. Another thing that kind of put me off was being accused of taking a bottle of water from the room when I haven't removed anything from the room. After clarifying with my group about whether anyone has taken anything or not and them all saying no, I approached the front desk again and advised them that I had not taken anything nor did the people in my group and the lady said that she will not charge me. Overall, despite the small inconveniences, it was an enjoyable stay and I would book again.

    Hi Angela, Thank you for providing feedback from your stay. Apologies if our bond policy was not clearly communicated during the booking stage.

    Rydges is in the center of everything. It is near resto of different cuisine and shops. ”

    It is near shops, pharmacy and the whole square is a place where you can get whatever you might need. It is near some interesting points easily by walking. Grab your best walking shoes and put on your sunblock to avoid over exposure to the sun during summer. Get yourself a map or your handy Google map for directions. We were a group of 5 friends mostly and we found our way to most places where we like to go. Be back there again 😊
