Pleasant stay ”
It was a pleasant stay with the convenience of eateries and interseting places nearby. As i needed to book a car to melbourne, i was happy to find Avis/Budget car rental just beside the hotel thus saving me the time to lug my luggages around. Pretty nice drinking place at the hotel too.

Service and food items in the hotel”
I was impressed when the counter staff provided a free upgrade of my hotel room. However, it was a little disappointing that the hot chocolate pack in the room was expired. Need to look into constantly checking on the expiry of their food items.
Dear Edwin, thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. We are so glad that the team were welcoming and were able to provide an upgrade. We apologise that there was an out of date product in the room, we can assure you that we do take this very seriously and will have our team look into this right away.

Very good location. ”
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.

We are so glad you enjoyed your experience and liked the hotel's location, we are certainly very luck to be so central to the cities attractions. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit. Kind Regards, Demi Butler - Front Office Manager
I am not sure that I got the room I booked but if I did, very disappointed. The bathroom floor, toilet, bath tub, shower floor and wall looks clean but there was a towel left from the previous customer hanging on the shower head and the basin bench also has lots of marks on it too.
Dear Hounn, thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. Please accept our sincere apologies that your expectations were not met, this is certainly not the level of quality we try to achieve. Please rest assured we will address this with the team immediately. Thanks again, Hotel Management.
Great location with lots of eateries”
Loved the service at the front desk, very polite and honest explanation to the guests, happy with the wait for them to prepare the room for us. The room is huge for a family with young children, the hotel is very well situated within the CBD and near to the Chinatown where you could get lots of Chinese food around. In short, will be back for future trip to Sydney again!
Dear Alex, thank you for your review and how pleasing to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Our Family Rooms are a big hit and we are so glad it was suitable for you during your stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind Regards, The Rydges World Square Team
Very friendly staff. Thumbs up to Tommy from Concierge who was very helpful. Location is excellent although need to take a few mins walks to nearest station. Cole supermarket just at the basement is very convenient. A lot of restaurants nearby the hotel.
Dear Angie, thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed everything, I will certainly ensure the feedback is also passed onto Tommy! We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Kind Regards, Hotel Management
The location is in the middle of everywhere, easily walk to the tourist spot and train, bus stop. The room is comfortable and enough for sleep 4 peoples for double twin room. The staff is very friendly and help us to get early check in and taxi in the early morning, when our flight is 6am

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.
Hi Kahn, Thank you for the feedback from your stay. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel and would stay again! Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
location, international staffs”
the location of the hotel is very convenient. the breakfast menu is pretty standard nothing special but don't worry the hotel is in the middle of everything (shopping center, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, take aways, street foods, etc.), 10 minutes walk to the darling harbour, 10 minutes walk to the china town and paddys market, and other good things is that they have international staffs who are very helpful and friendly, me and my family really enjoyed our stay at the rydges world square.
Hi Sani, Thank you for the feedback from your stay. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
Comfortable and convenient ”
Location is convenient - 2mins walk to Hyde park, 5mins to Darling Harbour and about 25mins to Circular Quay. Bus stop and train station are also close by. Room - was clean and spacious with the regular basic amenities. Gym is reasonable - has a couple cardio machines, range of dumbbells till 30kg, and 2-3 machines. It can get a bit crowded in the mornings. WiFi connectivity is good through the hotel.
Hi Akush, Thank you for the positive feedback from your stay. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
Be in Sydney city centre”
Chose this for its location , you can walk to all the f &b , shopping QVB, Midtown, Westfield and a short distance by bus or train to Circular Quay, the Rocks, Chinatown. Plenty of dining options within 1 km radius. Lovely room with a balcony, bedlinen was crisp and clean. A good sized room for two guests. By Sydney standards it’s good value. Checking in and out was prompt and efficient. A good experience overall.
Hi Wan, Thank you for the positive feedback from you experience at our hotel. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and our convenient location. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
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. We do advertise this on booking confirmation which you would receive at the time of booking. We do have a large bond due to the value of minibar in our rooms.We do hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
Great place to stay, with shuttle to airport, but no lift, which suited me just fine, as only a short flight of stairs and staff offered to help with bag. 2 bottles of water provided , but no warning about the tap water, which was a dirty colour in my room. Will definitely stop again
Hi Vicki, Thank you for providing feedback from your stay. Happy to hear that you will be back again in the future. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
Nice hotel and great location”
Just perfect. Lots of eating place (quite a number of Halal outlet) all within walking distance. Within shopping mall and COLES supermarket just downstairs. Near to train stations. Friendly staff, well kept, clean, great wifi. Will come back for sure.
Hi Abdul, Thank you for providing feedback from your stay. Happy to hear that you will be back again in the future. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
Good quality hotel”
We enjoyed the standard of the room and facilities but unfortunately the current state of light rail construction makes the area an eyesore. It's convenient tot trains stations and China Town, Korea Town and close to CBD shopping however the immediate area at t he moment is not very appealing.
Hi Jennifer, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay. We are really pleased you enjoyed the hotels facilities, and are looking forward to the light rail enhancements to be completed. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
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 😊
Hi Carmelita, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay, it's great to hear that you found the hotels location convenient. It really sounds like you enjoyed exploring our beautiful city. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team
