About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   It's just.. whelming. It's fine, but there's nothing special or good about it. Advertised robes were not in the room, room service was slow, quality of food was average. But the price is reasonable for all of that. If you're looking for a decent execution of the hotel experience from 20 years ago, Rydges is it.

Review:   Rydges Surry Hills is a very convenient location to stay in Sydney, close to Markets, Chinatown and a short walk to Darling Harbour. And it's only about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the city. There are a large number of great restaurants in the area, especially in Crown Street, offering a huge range of cuisines to choose from. There are also a few outlet shops a block away in Foveaux Street and lots of pubs and bars to enjoy a drink or a meal. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and always happy to help if you need assistance. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable.

Review:   Everyone was nice and very helpful. The pool was really cool. Our room was comfortable. The central train station was a short walk away (though doesn't feel very short if you are carrying lots of luggage. We also had a late evening flight, and they held our luggage for us after we checked out. I'd definitely stay here again if I ever find myself back in Sydney.

Review:   Overall our stay at Rydges was as expected for the brand and price of the hotel. There were a few bad points however nothing that would effect my overall opinion of the hotel. The hotel is located well within walking distance of Central, some cafes and is on the same block as a 7-11 so this is highly convenient for any type of traveler. The hotels staff were really friendly during check in and check out and for booking anything we needed. The newly renovated rooms and bathrooms are really nice and well sized, my only issue would be the sofa bed, as if you have to use it its pretty uncomfortable to sleep in. However everything else including the TV, Bathroom and other Beds I also got to try out the pool while there, its a really nice indoor pool with a cool moon roof that is open until 10pm. There was also an occurrence during our visit where both main elevators seemed to be stuck and we had to use the less used alternate elevators, we were not sure if this was a mechanical issue or something due to the time as this was late at night.

Review:   i think i paid extra due to some seasonal hikes (all hotels in central became more expensive at that time) so maybe you wanna watch the prices a little while It was a short stay so i didnt access the spa and pools. what i really liked was the room. large and comfy. rather than just being clean, this hotel has modern (looks new and well maintained too) interior which i really liked.
