Location great for any event at university of Sydney, otherwise 15 minute bus ride to train station. A few restaurants walkable. Rooms good size, bathroom adequate, no wait for elevators, staff friendly, room a bit aged and could use a make over but ok for a stay. Good wifi

Stayed at the Rydges with two mates this week as a place to stay after a concert in Newtown. The rooms are non-smoking, however our room smelt of cigarette smoke, and upon return from the concert the stench was overpowering. The room was generously sized, and very neatly presented. The air conditioning did not seem to be functioning in the... More

Rooms are a bit old and could do with a refurbish especially the bathrooms. Hated having to climb over a bath to have a shower. The staff were very pleasant but one let down was that the restaurant is not open on weekends

Close to Newtown and easy access to transport. The room was just OK. Bathroom very old and not very clean. Bed was comfortable but pillows were like rocks.
