Was able to book at 9 that night. The receptionist dude was super nice and funny! Give than a raise
Location That there was a table in the room Warm
The shower was horrible. Not just the lack of water it was either boiling hot or cold, could not get a balance. Asked another guest if the same for them and they said yes. There is no way I could have washed my hair and this would prevent me staying in future despite perfect location for Melb Uni. Carbonara from room service not nice.
Didier went above and beyond helping us run our conference smoothely!!
This hotel, close to the Victoria Market and plenty of trams passing by, represents a great location at a great price. The staff were absolutely delightful and I would stay there again but ask for a renovated room.
On my second visit, a week later, I was given the room next door to the one I had previously. Sadly this was an unrenovated room so the draft from the bathroom was cold and the airconditioning was so noisy I had to turn it off. It was very disappointing after the experience I had had a week earlier.
clean, spacious room, and location close to school as well as good food.
provides a place to spend your night
very old worn out. state of toilet and shower was poor. uncomfortable beds. accidentally booked 'Rydges'; previously had good experience with Bell city Rydges. Parking fee 25AUD!
common areas very worn. noisy,poor sound insulations between rooms and in corridors
Proximity to Melbourne Uni, Lygon St and trams.
Lift was very slow.
Lovely hotel, booked a king room, upgraded us to a queen spa room which was fantastic, secure parking, thanks Rydges.
Very reasonably priced. The location was wonderful for the Victoria Market. The staff were delightful and attentive. The bar was a pleasant space on a chilly Melbourne evening.
I stayed twice a week apart and the first room was delightful, freshly renovated, I was very surprised and pleased with the quality. The following Friday I stayed in the room next door which had not been renovated and it was a little dismal. The air conditioner was noisy and it just felt tired. Disappointing after the pleasant surprise I had the previous week.
Excellence and comfort. Modern decor. All day bar meals delicious and convenient. Close to public transport. Walking distance to Lygon Street. Free parking on street on Sundays.
Door key would not work on three occasions and had to be reprogrammed. The cost of parking.
Rooms, location , price .
The rooms were well laid out. The staff were efficient and helpful. The dining room was comfortable and had good acoustics. The location is very good with easy access to trams, a good park, Lygon Street and Melbourne CBD. The hotel is in a quiet area
Access from the street to the entry foyer did not have a ramp making it difficult to move luggage into and out of the hotel. The breakfast buffet is a bit bland and should have a bit more variety.
awesome hot chocolates, quick room service. Great bar with heated outdoor area.
room was a bit noisy
lack of enthusiasm from staff, particularly the breakfast staff, who were uncomfortable to approach, as ourselves and others had to keep asking to replenish the breakfast bar. You also need to make it clear on the cost of parking
Free wifi. Breakfast was good. Room size was ok
Only 1 lift which was slow, noisy and old. Bathroom was to small with toilet shoved in the corner under the towel rail. Our room was beside service lift which banged and clanged late into the night and then early in the morning. The hardest bed I have ever slept on. Only 1 lounge chair for 2 people.
Staff worked as hard as they could within the limitations of the property. Upgrade was appreciated. Room not ready on arrival after 3pm. Was given late checkout but would rather have room ready. Room was nice.
Cold room, dreadful lift, and noisy throughout the building. Hot water not adequate. Had two tepid showers. Rather old towels. Lobby shabby.
Location and convenience
Conveniently located to one of our appointments but to nothing else.
The smell. The whole floor & room stunk lime wet mouldy airless. The lack of thought to cheap but simple thing that would help the guest experience like... A bottle of complimentary drinking water, a bottle opener to open the non complimentary bottle of water, a soap dish so your not sliding soap all over the basin top.
Value for money. For a one night stay - ideal.
Room looked out onto busy street (not too much privacy)
Loved the spaciousness and convenience parking underground. Great spot , will come again. Staff real people...helpful and nice without being too fake
bathroom didn't have any bench space
Quiet room Excellent sized room
Lift was very slow Very small bathroom, no hairdryer supplied.
I loved the bed very comfortable
Staff at reception on check in very unfriendly, did not provide any information about breakfast and didn't explain using the car park also there was a half eaten packet of lollies left with the food in the room so I was hoping we weren't charged because it was already there
