“Ordinary accommodation”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Bed was not as good quality as at other Rydges. Linen very tired. Room was clean. Restaurant menu remains limited and the hours of bar food also limited. Hotel public areas were very cold, room with air con was fine. Free wifi was good and worked well

Room Tip: Ask for a high room away from the lifts

It was my first stay ar Rydges and have higher expectation based on first impression upon check in and feedback from friend. However, the room that I was in was a little small, dark and old. While wifi is free which I totally appreciate, the connection was not good and not stable. Overall it was OK but could be better.

Not a good experience at all
1. Despite being told room would be ready at 2pm we couldn't get in til 3:30pm
2. Stayed in a premier suite (room 309) for good money ($350 a night) for a room with shocking small tv that didn't work properly (no sound on some channels Gem etc) and the bedroom not sound proofed!! Was as if the bed was in the middle of the street
3. Ordered room service and told 30 min wait. 90 mins go by call up and they say they never received my order.

Not good enough for the price you pay!!!

I'd say stay elsewhere there are much better places

Rydges Melbourne has become the regular staying point for my family and me. The location is amazing - perfect for the theatres, restaurants, cafes and walking distance to Flinders Street and even the MCG! The rooms are fantastic for a family. We tend to stay in the Queen Spa Suite which suits our family of four. The service is always exemplary in reception and housekeeping in particular. The only less than perfect service we have experienced is from the evening bar staff at a weekend. We'll be back for our next stay soon!

The hotel upgraded me to a queen suite which was very generous of them, this was a lovely large room with a seperate bed area. It was great for my work trip as I could work in the lounge area and get away from work in the bed area. The bathroom was large with a bath which I enjoyed. The overall decor is a neat and tidy but a little tired.

I had room service on the first night, the pork belly starter was a bit bland and disapointing especially for the price, whereas the burger and chips was decent in flavour and value. The next day the tray had been moved outside the room but not collected. Also I had only used the shower gel but they gave me a new shampoo, conditioner and skin cream but not a new shower gel, maybe they were out.

Room Tip: I had a room on the north side and there was a bit of noise from the street and the people outside t...

Hotel staff very friendly and the hotel is located in a perfect position for the various shows .
