A hotel near the centre with beautiful pool

Posted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: The location of the hotel is very convenience, most of the places can be accessed within walking distance, especially the central station.
Cons: A microwave might be needed to warm up take-away food.
We spent 4 days in Rydge hotel with nice experience, with friendly and helpful staffs. The swimming pool was perfect with warm water which helped us relax after long days travelling around. From hotel, we could go to most of the famous places by walking or train from very near-by central station. There are several good restaurants around as well.

Good location tucked away from the main buzz

Posted Apr 22, 2014
Nice hotel. Room size quite small yet feels spacious with everything you need. Good amenities and friendly staff. Would absolutely stay again and would recommend if wanting a nice hotel tucked away from the buzz of Sydney's CBD but within walking distance. Price was reasonable.

Very small room. Not like the photo advertised.

Posted Apr 22, 2014
Cons: The easter eggs on the reception desk.
Location: close to central station. view of central railway station.
Indoor pool was cold, sauna was cold with no water made available for steam. The Room was small, nothing like what I expected. On check in the reception was cold. I know official check in is 2pm but the hotel wasn't busy and the room was not ready by 1:30pm. The only good thing was the bowls of easter eggs on the reception desk.

Close proximity to Capitol Theatre.

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: The Buffet Breakfast was the highlight of our stay & parking was quite reasonably priced at $34.50 overnight.
Cons: New carpets & decor requires attention (dated somewhat)
Location: Handy to Central railway station, Chinatown & Capitol Theatre.
The purpose of the stay was to attend the Capitol Theatre to see the Lion King (fantastic show) and to have an enjoyable stay overnight in a classy hotel. Unfortunately this hotel I'm sure was classy in its time but is stuck in the past and is in dire need of modernisation. Part of the experience I had hoped for during our stay was a beautiful city view but it wasn't to be, unfortunately the room was overlooking the back alley & facing other drab buildings through the double glass doors instead.

Quality Hotel

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: Has a gym, spa and sauna
Cons: Website bookings need to be accurate regarding name
Location: Close to Capitol theatre and central station
Confused looking for the motel as it was listed on booking as The Sebel Surry Hills and has since had a name change. Location is good for the upper part of CBD. Close to public transport.

Great location, close to Central Station

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Pros: Central to where we were planning to go i.e. transport to Olympic Park, CBD and China Town
Cons: Would have been nice to have a second queen bed rather than a sofa bed.
Nice and close to public transport and China Town. Good restaurants nearby (couple of blocks) and café breakfasts. Room was what we expected (clean, normal hotel room). Staff were very helpful both with advice and looking after our luggage. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel needs some work for the overnight rate

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Dinning was terrible for breakfast and thought the hotel was quite run down for the overnight rate
