An hotel which is well located for a number of venues, monuements, etc. Upper floors we found to be very quiet. Delicious breakfast buffet. Hotel staff very alert to guest's needs and will help arrange day trips, connections to airport, etc.

Rydges offers great rates for East Melbourne visitors. The rooms are a pleasant standard for a business hotel and very quiet. There is a good breakfast buffet. Free wifi was included in the rate. I was able to leave my car parked all day. Highly recommended.

We arrived late but had no difficulty checking in. Our room was on the 22nd floor and was very comfortable. The bathroom was quite small and with paint off the door was showing signs of wear and tear, but we were very comfortable. We dined in the restaurant one night and the food was superb. On another night we stayed...

Always enjoy our stay at Rydges, Melbourne. Staff are excellent, the room, though at the back, was lovely. Great bed, shower etc. Great position, theaters, parks, trams, etc. The restaurant is great, breakfast is very good, and the dinners were superb. Wait staff in the restaurant are very efficient, especially Coleman.

After much thought and research we finally decided on Rydges in Exhibition Street for our first stay in Melbourne. As the price was quite reasonable we opted for the Queen Spa room giving us more space for our 3 night stay. While its not the Hilton, it was very comfortable, the bed was to die for and we enjoyed plenty...

Comfortable bed with good pillows. Great facilities at the hotel Not the most modern or up market but certainly a very nice stay. Quiet rooms and a short walk to some great restaurants and the theatre

As we had an 11am appointment in the CBD, it was prudent to stay overnight at Rydges Melbourne. Reception was very efficient, room clean & comfortable & very quiet. We had one problem with TV not operating, but a phone call to housekeeping brought a repair man up immediately.... Prior occupants had switched it off with an almost hidden switch...

We always stay at Rydges in Melbourne while here. We come down every year in January for the Australian Open and it is a great location because we can walk to Melbourne Park. We have always found the staff very pleasant and helpful and the service very good. We stay at other times when we visit family in Melbourne because...

I purchased a package to stay at Rydges on Exhibition and I was so impressed ! It included late check out, breakfast and parking. I had a suite which had an amazing city view and the furnishings were lovely, as we were going to see a show at Her Majesty's that night ( which is across the road) and then...

We had an overnight package, which included dinner and breakfast, parking and late checkout (1pm). Our room had a fantastic view out over the Dandenongs - we were treated to a spectacular sunrise complete with hot air balloons crossing the sky! The room was fantastic, meals were yum and all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I would hightly recommend...

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.
