Poor - 0.5 out of 5

Don’t waste your money

Liked: The property is old, dated and like a rabbit warren that will leave you feeling like Alice in wonderland down the rabbit hole trying to get out.It’s an absolute nightmare One lift working for the entire building and a 30minutes wait to get in it.Rooms aren’t big enough to swing a handbag in, they are so old and worn.The $459 price tag for one night is clearly for the convenience of being within walking distance to the cruise terminal.Will never set foot in a Rydges again after this experience.So many upset travelers shared the same frustration and staff don’t even ask how your stay was because…..they know.

Had a nice stay but...

Liked: The view and location was great.
Disliked: The bathroom had lots lots of mould and could have better cleaned. The bar fridge didn’t work. Also I found a fried chip next to the bed and it wasn’t from us. Rooms are very tired and need some money spent on them.

The best location to stay...

Liked: Perfect location in "The Rocks" area to stay. You are in the heart of everything in the area. Room was very good and clean throughout. The staff is very personable and helpful. We have 2 planned stays here and this was the first 2 day stay. Very happy we decided to stay at The Rydges Sydney Harbour
Disliked: There is nothing to dislike... The price of the rooms correlates to the location, location, location....
