My wife and I had booked a deluxe twin room for two nights at this Rydges hotel which would probably deserve a basic 4 star rating. We requested a change from room 1102 following our first night because the side springs in one bed base were broken resulting in a poor night’s sleep while trying not to roll onto the floor. Thankfully we were changed to a different room which was an even greater blessing because it moved us from being near an extremely noisy lift and also a rowdy family who commuted between several rooms talking noisily and letting doors slam for 90 minutes from 5:00am. The second night was more peaceful and we slept far better. Reception staff were extremely helpful and they cheerfully addressed our concerns and assisted with other requests during our stay.
The hotel is adjacent to Chinatown and in the Theatre district which was handy to Mary Poppins, The Musical, at Her Majesty’s across the road. It’s close to trams and trains and is only a few blocks from the city centre. The MCG is a pleasant 20 minute stroll.
