                              Clean and comfortable room

                              Noisey aircon in room and hotel foyer looks tired - would put some guests off and did not reflect same ambience of room

                              Excellent location for city shopping, shows and sight seeing. All the staff on the front counter were fantastic to deal with, very professional and helpful. Room was comfortable and well appointed. We would use Rydges again in the future.

                              it was close to all the locations we needed to visit while in melbourne

                              had to go down 16 floors to have a cigarette, they should have designated smoking areas on some floors

                              Great location, short walks to pretty much everything. Friendly and useful staff, great facilities.

                              Did not like the 2/3% addon for paying buy credit card.

                              I loved the location, it was within walking distance of absolutely anything I needed and wanted to see in Melbourne.

                              I think the rooms were a little bit small and overpriced

                              Design of the room was comfortable and pleasant

                              The furniture (lounge and chairs etc) was very old and worn... very out-of character with the rest of our experience.

                              Location of this hotel was great ,very near to china town and other shopping area.The room was spacious and comfortable.

                              Toilet was a bit small and wifi could have been provided at lower rate.

                              Fantastic location whether it be for shopping, shows or just for restaurants, everything is close by. The hotel has everything that you need, and good cocktails next door.

                              Great position in the middle of town.

                              The bathroom was a bit uncomfortable with nowhere to put toiletries.

                              Room was spacious and comfortable.

                              Arrived at 5.30pm, room still wasn't ready. Had to wait another 20 minutes, were given drink tokens as compensation which only covered the cheapest drinks. Jacuzzi was not as advertised - much smaller. We couldn't access the swimming pool area with our cards.
