Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was a break away for us to see the Ramses exhibition & The Man from Snowy River, so disappointed with the ridiculous increase in pricing! We understand that there is going to be an “ event” ( deliberate non naming as no interest) in a weeks time, why were we collateral damage??? Anyway enough of my rant, the check in was smooth & room ready, nice room. Can’t believe how noisy some people are late at night! Absolutely no respect for other hotel guests! So not much sleep!

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review, we are delighted you have enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you enjoyed the Ramses Exhibition & The Man from Snowy River. Indeed, pricing can be at times driven by major events in the city. It is rather unfortunate for the people not taking part in such an event, which we can fully understand. Thank you again for sharing your experience. We look forward to seeing you in the near future. Warm regards, JF Savaroc Executive Assistant Manager

Hotel's Favourite
The Rydges World Square is an awesome place to stay, walking distance to everything you need and want to see while in Sydney. Also close to restaurants and theatres. The family room is so good and makes the stay even better. The staff were very helpful and nothing was a problem.

Lovely hotel - friendly and professional staff, clean and well designed rooms, great shower, lots of power points in room, nice breakfast. We saw many airline crews staying there, and cruise ship passengers assembling there ready to go on board the next day. Large hotel but very well designed and managed, so it never felt crowded. Our room faced Pitt St and was a bit noisy during the night, but OK for central Sydney. Great location, right near Museum Station, Hyde Park, museums/art galleries etc.

Great location, decent room, friendly staff. But notes under my door every day? Why? I didn't want room cleaning, so I left the "do not disturb" hanger on my door. Every day I got a new note saying something like "You've had that hanger on your door for 24 hours, please call the front desk and let us know you're doing well or we'll enter your room to check on you." But why? I do this at every hotel in every country I've traveled and I've never had this issue before. And lets be real, they're not actually worried about me, they're trying to check on the room. If they want to check on it every few days to make sure I'm not doing something to damage it, I'd get that, but every single day? Leave me alone. I'm not going to call you either. I came here for a vacation, not a clingy relationship. I got a couple other notes too, one notifying me about window cleaning (okay, that's fine) and another about... something I forget, but I didn't need it. By the time I checked out I had a tall stack of notes and envelops on the minibar. Oddly enough, the one day I did welcome cleaning in I did it mostly because I thought they'd refill the empty soap and shampoo dispensers in the shower. Nope. I otherwise liked the hotel. It was a great value to be in the middle of a busy part of Sydney and I loved starting from there each morning. My room didn't have a view worth looking at and the TV selection was extremely limited, but wifi was good enough and all the basics were covered. Coffee was just the freeze dried kind and no microwave, but there are like 3 great places to get coffee downstairs in the shopping area and tons of restaurants. I might book it again, but if I saw a comparable looking hotel for an extra $20-$40 a night I'd probably try it instead so I wasn't getting bothered every day with those little notes.

Dear guest, We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback online. We regret to learn that you found the notes we placed under your door to be bothersome. Our intention behind this gesture is to ensure that even when you prefer not to be disturbed, you are aware of our readiness to assist you with any additional amenities or requests you may have during your stay. It's worth noting that hotel rooms typically do not include microwaves; this amenity is commonly found in serviced apartments. We mention this to help manage expectations for future travels to other city hotels, ensuring a smoother experience for you. We agree that our location is indeed unique, nestled right in the heart of this beautiful city! We're delighted to hear that ultimately, you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you once again for your feedback. Warm regards, JF Savaroc Executive Assistant Manager

From beginning to end, the hospitality from Rydges World Square staff was excellent. Staff were attentive to our needs and requests, the rooms were clean and spacious and the Hotel was central to everything. I would have liked more information regarding local attractions, restaurants etc as a bonus! Great place and would stay again!

We flew into Sydney for one night prior to embarking on a cruise. Everything was OK for the time we were there, but I have to believe there are better hotel options for anyone wishing to stay in Sydney longer. The breakfast that was included in our booking was a mad-house buffet, making it difficult to enjoy a peaceful start to the morning. A plus is that the location is conveniently close to the Sydney Tower, and shopping / dining options.

Perfect location, good service, just the two double beds are bit small, would be great to be Queen size or larger. Good sleep is critical for everyone, as a family we need to share. Clean, tidy, easy walk to all shops and Opera house.,...................

Room and bed were clean and comfortable. Disappointed the Amber restaurant was not open Monday evening. Housekeeping came to my room at 9am and I asked them for 1/2 hour more; room was not done at 3pm. I think they had just forgotten, although the receptionist did send someone immediately at my request.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review, we are delighted you have enjoyed your stay with us. I've followed up on your housekeeping hiccup with the housekeeping manager, to avoid a repeat. Sorry about this again. I understand it must've been annoying to miss out on AMBER restaurant, even more so as we have started our new gorgeous summer menu. On Monday nights, we do have the Cidery Bar open for dinner, as well as room service of course. Thank you again for taking the time to review us online.
