Very clean rooms, friendly staff, and conveniently located. This hotel also seems to offer the best prices for rooms in Sydney. Would definitely recommend. Also good offeres for members of the Rydges Group.

Good location, with lots to see within an easy walking distant. Great helpful and friendly staff, who took great care of whatever we requested. Located in a busy commercial area, so don't expect great views of the city, just other high-rise buildings, but very convenient.

Rydges have a really user friendly online booking. The only downside was that I emailed and booked an extra bed. This was missed but organised quickly when we asked for it. Friendly Reception and good breakfast, perfect scrambled eggs! Clean room except for the bathroom that could have been better. The daily service came very late at about 5.30pm, too...

I stayed for 4 nights at the Rydges World Square for business. My second stay at the hotel. One of the finest hotel, great location, comfortable room and amenities. Within walking distance to everywhere within the CBD i.e Darling Harbour, Sydney Harbour, Botanical Garden. Chinatown, Paddy's Market and transit stations.

I stayed for six nights at the Rydges World Square for business. This was my second stay and I have always found the hotel to be of a high quality. The hotel is located centrally, not far from Pitt and George Streets and all the sights of the CBD. The World Square precinct provides lots of options for eating out...

​Stay at the Rydges World for 2 nights in February, 2017. One of the finest hotels we have visited. The hotel staff was friendly and eager to help. Great breakfast buffet, something for every one.The only negative is that we arrived at the hotel at 9:00 am and our room wasn't ready until 1:00pm. We purchased a 2 day pass...

Originally, my husband and I were supposed to be staying in budget accommodation at Capital Square Hotel. However, they had a fire and had to relocate us here, which we got for the same price because of the mishap. Fair enough, we were pretty happy to be getting a nice hotel for a cheap price... until we arrived. First of...

Convenient location with direct access to the mall. Lots of eatery around the hotel - Korean BBQ, Japanese sushi and lots of cafe. Take note that the hotel does not provide toothbrush and toothpaste. Most important no complementary water for the stay

We really enjoyed our 4 days in this Hotel. Room was large, bed comfortable and Bathroom excellent. There are certainly many more luxurious hotels in Sydney, but be prepared to pay!

Very good reception staff sets a great tone for a visit but unfortunately, everything else is somewhat ordinary. Really uninspiring room fit-out but the biggest issue was that it just wasn't clean. The bathroom had not been properly cleaned, the toilet cistern wouldn't turn off unless you lifted the lid and stopped it and the cushions on the bed "smelt"...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
