Enjoyed staying at Rydges we usually do. Only complaint was the antiquated shower over the bath. Helpful staff told us to stipulate a walk in shower next time we stay. Excellent central position in centre city, easy walk to venues.

We stayed at the rydges hotel for three nights. I wish it was only one. Room far too small and bathroom well tiny, these rooms were not cleaned, towels not changed. Also maid left phone charger still plugged in, very dissapointing. Breakfast was reasonable.

My room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was a little cramped, but not too bad for central Melbourne. The biggest issue was the lifts; the number of lifts is totally inadequate for the capacity of the building! The hotel was quite busy, so there...More

to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
