Hidden Diamond in the CBD of Sydney”

Rydges World Square is very near to any attraction in Sydney, you can reach all the attraction within walking distance, The hotel located in the heart of Sydney's CBD on the corner of Pitt st and Liverpool streets. With a lot of things to do in Sydney, you will stay completely easy to find the food and restaurant. you can find Chinatown, CockleBay, Wharf and Opera house nearby the hotel. Beside that i can easily to find COLES supermarket to buy the water and snack for my daughter, truly a hidden GEM in Sydney's CBD. Recommended for any friends or relative to stay in this hotel.

Good experience at Rydges World Square with family”

I travelled to Sydney with family. I was not quite sure if I should book this hotel as I did see some views which concerned me a bit. However, i m very satisfied with Rydges world square. I booked two rooms for two nights. The rooms are big enough for us and reasonably clean. The breakfast is not bad. I like the yogurt with nuts. You can get $10 credit each night if you don’t request housekeeping service and place the green sign on the door. That’s for good or drinks. The staffs are very friendly. I will come back again for sure.

Fantastic room and location. Breakfast not to hotel standard”

My hubby and I stay in Sydney frequently but I don't think Ive stayed at Rydges WS before. So was keen to try it out on a recent get away with my mum and daughter. We loved the room (which was a family room with a connecting door) and the location of Rydges World Square and were happy to purchase the breakfast package but the breakfast situation was very disappointing. The hotel rooms, lobby and layout is of a high standard so why have you compromised with your below par breakfast layout? Staff are friendly mostly but no one shows you to your table, you have to get your own cutlery, there is no proper coffee included (most good hotels will include this) and as it is held in a partitioned function area, it feels very makeshift. What a shame because this hotel would have been top of my list for future visits. Might skip the breakfast next time. Location is superb with many dining and entertainment options close-by. Room was very quiet too.

Reviewed March 05, 2020

Dear Ms Annette, Thank you kindly for your detailed feedback, it really is appreciated! It is disappointing you hear your experiences with the breakfast during your stay, we will definitely pass this on to our relevant departments. We do apologise if the breakfast was held in one of our conference rooms during your stay, this is due to our restaurant renovations which will be opening in Mid-March, called Amber! We hope to see ou again soon. Warm Regards - The Rydges World Square Team

Top notch”

Really comfy bed, great location
No swimming pool

We booked to stay at Rydges World Square only a couple of days before we were due to leave for Sydney. The rate was reasonable at 129 NZD. We stayed on the 15th floor, although in reality this was actually about the 4th floor. The staff were friendly and attentive. The room was spotless and the bed ensured we had one of the best sleeps we'd had in a while. It would have been nice to have the sky food channel. There is a fantastic place for breakfast next door, but buffet breakfast at the hotel was equally as nice. I've never had a buffet where they made up fresh fruit smoothies and you were able to order a cappucino (not mochas unfortunately). Room service dessert was great, but as with everything in Sydney, expensive. All in all, we'd stay there again.

Rydges World Square Hotel in Sydney, Australia”

The rooms were spacious and very clean. The hotel is close to Chinatown, Hyde Park, Capitol Theatre and a host of shopping centers.
The beds were not very soft and the pillows were - on the other hand - way too soft. I woke up with a stiff neck on my second day.

If you are looking for a place in the center of Sydney that is within a very short walking distance to Chinatown (for a fantastic culinary treat), Hyde Park (for a relaxing stroll or a brisk jog), the entertainment centers (like Capitol Theatre - for "Wicked!"), and a host of shopping centers (like the "QVB Mall"), then the Rydges World Square Hotel comes highly recommended. It probably give s the best value-for-money in all the hotels around the city center of Sydney. The Sydney Monorail even has a terminal located in the same building as the hotel.

Great location, clean room and friendly staffs”

The hotel is located on one of main streets of Sydney CBD and most of all popular spots and shopping areas are in walking distances. Moreover the World Square is just below the hotel building so you are able to enjoy all different gourmet foods of restaurants as day and night. Bedding was so comfortable, and gym facility was all new and well set up. Although noise from the street annoyed me but it was understandable as I stayed on the main street. Definitely would choose here for my accommodation if I visit this city again.

My family and I had a pleasant stay at Rydges World Square. We arrived before 12 noon and when we checked-in at the front desk, we were informed that our room is ready! I appreciate having able to freshen up and settle-in before we went out for lunch and sightseeing. The hotel is centrally located and close to shopping, restaurants and a supermarket. For first time visitors, it was easy to get around the city from the hotel. It's walking distance to the train station and bus stops. The staff are also very helpful when we were asking for directions. My husband loved the comfy bed. It's big enough for our family of 3. I highly recommend this hotel.

Its right beside the World Square mall so TONSSSS of good food and shops and a super market right there Nothing beats this convenience !!! 2. Price: reasonable compared to the heaping prices of hotels in Sydney and the location and convenience. I also got a random deal from Agoda so it was great 3.
