As a regular visitor to Rydges I always appreciate the consistency of service and the excellent location. New paint and closing off the adjoining door in our favourite room on the top floor made for a quieter night as we could no longer hear our neighbours.

we visited Melbourne to visit the van Gogh exhibition. Our family always stay at a Rydges hotel. We thoroughly enjoy this hotel as it is central to where we wish to visit. Our room was large clean, the bed very comfortable and the well fitted bathroom has very large, soft and thirsty. We just love it here.

Great stay again at Rydges. Great location for a city stay - close to everywhere. Hotel bar and happy hour is great value - $6 for a Pint and $6 for a sparkling wine ! Parking is right next door, hotel is clean and great value

Our family of three stayed for the weekend. Excellent service with great facilities. We had tickets for a game at the MCG - close to public transport to travel to and from. Include breakfast in your booking - it's delicious and a huge range to choose from ! Important to know if you have a large 4WD you may have...

This hotel is quite good as befits the Rydges chain but is not a patch on Rydges Sydney. Clean and marvellous comfortable bed but decor and bathroom is dated and in need of refurbishment. Service also a bit lacking with several minor glitches noted pertaining to our tour group. Very good restaurant. Free WiFi for emails but fairly slow.

I had a really good stay as usual. Excellent staff , friendly and courteous. Nice clean rooms! Highly recommend you stay here when staying in the city . I do suggest if you have the chance to request a room away from the elevators as they can be a tad noisy at night. However I have always enjoyed my stays...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
