Positive Reviews

Location, Location!

Rydges Melbourne boasts a prime location in the heart of Melbourne. Guests loved being within walking distance to all main attractions, shopping and dining. No matter what your passion is, it won't be out of reach. Fans of the arts will appreciate being in the middle of the theater district, shopping enthusiasts will be blocks from Collins Street, and sports fans will only be a stroll from Melbourne Cricket Grounds and Etihad Stadium. In addition, the hotel is convenient to public transportation.

Bountiful Breakfast

Guests loved the breakfast at Rydges Melbourne, and appreciated the variety of foods available and the fresh tasting selections. Keep in mind though, on busy days, the line for breakfast can get long. Locanda Restaurant gets great dinner reviews as well and praises for good service.

Lounging in the Lobby

Don't forget to check out the lobby and bar areas at the hotel. Guests said the public areas were warm, welcoming, and a relaxing place to lounge in.

Negative Reviews


Though most guests were pleased with the hotel service, a few thought the hotel personnel was, at times, poorly managed or understaffed, especially during breakfast. In addition, some of the front desk staff wasn't always knowledgeable about the hotel or local area.

Noisy Nuisances

The air conditioning units in the rooms aren't brand new and many guests thought they were too loud. Some guests staying on the lower floors were also bothered by street and traffic noise. If you're a light sleeper, it's a good idea to bring earplugs along, and request a high floor room.

Minor Annoyances

Several guests thought the lights in the rooms were too dim, and the water pressure wasn't very strong.
