This is a great, centrally located hotel but the air-con units are incredibly noisy. This is a serious flaw in an otherwise fine hotel. The business suites on the upper floors have new, quiet air-con units and I recommend the upgrade to anyone who wants an uninterrupted nights sleep.

I had two area's where I felt the hotel staff let the total experience down. 1. We had dinner and breakfast in the dining room. We were seated (for dinner) near the windows and close to the bar. I found the site of all the empty dirty glasses etc which accumulated on the bar not pleasing. At first I excused it because I thought the bar staff were putting them through the dishwasher but it quickly became obvious that that was not the case as more and more used glasses built up! It was not as if the bar staff were busy, I've never seen stocking up the drinks fridge take so long, it could have been much faster if the two staff weren't having a lovely long catch up!!! 2. I found the woman on reception when I was checking out somewhat unfriendly and superior. When I asked her why was the parking fee $29 when overnight in the carpark (not hotel guests) was $27 she could not explain it, I said I would have thought that as hotel guests we should have got a better deal and all she said was that the $29 charge was a deal but that she couldn't remember the reason!!!

This was the third time I have visited this hotel in the last four months and on this trip was the third Rydges hotel I stayed in that week. My previous visits were good but this experience left a lot to be desired. Most of my issues concerned the room which was tired, with twin beds although a king was booked. One of the two beds had a broken frame which meant it was impossible to sleep on unless you liked sleeping with a 15 degree list. The plumbing in the room gurgled like a drunk walrus everytime you flushed or drained the sink. Finally as a Gold member I should not have to ask for the usual benefits such as a voucher for a complementary drink. I planned to extend my stay in Melbourne over the weekend which in fact I did but moved to another hotel across town - I may return but not before I can be sure of a better experience. Hope my feedback can be put to good use.

Hotel is in good location , lots of building work taking place around the hotel , The rooms were very small and the bathroom is built for small people and way overdue for a face lift , the mattres was pretty worn down and sag in the middle which left us with 2 sleepless nights , The breakfast was good with variety of choices to choose from A big let down is $29 they charge you for using their hotel parking, I would rate this hotel as a 3 stars

The staff were wonderful and incredibly helpful. The food and service in the locanda steakhouse was impeccable, I would happily recommend to anyone. Our room was very clean and spacious, not to mention quiet. As we were attending a show at Her Majesty's Theater the location was incredible, and only a short walk to Bourke Street shopping. 10 out of 10, we will definitely stay again.

We were disappointed when checking out, the staff member did not provide us with the correct card to leave the underground carpark and we held up 10 cars and it was horrible. We had to run back in and wait in a long line to get the correct card, it was not good enough and held up a lot of people, not just us

The size of the bedroom was good. Bathroom was terribly small no room to move, no where to put your toilet bag. The water running from the shower was so slow. Toilet was too low. Guests in nearby rooms were noisy. My husband had to wait 15 minutes for a cappuccino at breakfast.

Value for money was excellent. Sound proofing of room very poor, too much traffic noise compared with other hotels we have stayed in. Room heater very loud. Breakfast was great! We'd come again just for the breakfast facilities which were included in the price,

Murray greeted us....I was very impressed. The price was excellent with breakfast included, very happy with all services etc...the bed was nice and soft excellent all round. Only problem is we had to leave very early, as our office/building was having an electrical upgrade and we had to be there 7.30am sunday morning! Otherwise loved it, all good.thanks!
