An overcast day, still quite chilly. As we were up early, we made the most of our last day in the Blue Mountains and drove to the Grand Canyon area, where we walked to a lookout over the canyon. The views were again quite amazing, with the cloud hovering on the adjacent hills and the rainforest spread out in the valley below. Very peaceful, …

Our first experience in Australia was a bit rocky. We missed our connecting flight from Sydney to Wagga by about 10 minutes! After about an hour of freaking out over where to stay and what to do, Quantas airline was kind enough to give us free accommodation. They granted us one free night at the Rydges hotel next to the airport along with $50 …

I am starting this blog almost 7 months into our Australian trip so I will do my best to make everything as accurate as possible. My girlfriend and me arrived in Sydney airport after a 15 hour flight from Abu Dhabi on a Saturday afternoon which also happened to be Australia day. We had stayed the night in Abu Dhabi which broke up the journey from …

Finally there!

Note to self: do not combine mini european tour with long haul to Oz.
Pat on back to self: Etihad Airways is THE best airline in the world and the only way to fly long haul. Their economy class is KLM's business or better with huge leg space, perfect entertainment system with no less than THREE movies featuring Christian Bale (happy days!) ...

    The room was so updated with a beautiful view! The hotel provided anything you could possibly desire at the personal mini bar area in each room. The Sports Bar connected to the hotel had friendly servers and really satisfying food.

    Ended up getting a late book in offer for this hotel and it didn't disappoint. Only downside was the wifi was expensive but other than that the hotel and the service was as good as you would expect from a hotel of that calibre.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Rydges World Square Sydney Hotel

    Nice - not 5-star


    We had a nice stay and all the staff were friendly - just a couple of things that made me feel that it wasn't up to 5-star quality.

    A huge letdown


    Extremely disappointing hotel masquerading as a 5 star. It is really lucky to even be considered as a 4 star.

    Sydney's best kept secret hotel!


    We stayed here for 5 days during our honeymoon back when it was the Avillion Hotel and we loved every minute of it. The hotel was immaculate, the rooms were well-appointed with the cleanest bedsheets and duvet ever! We had a room on a high floor with a private but sunlit view.

    Good hotel, good location, but not 5 star


    Nice hotel but would not call it a five star hotel as advertised. Stayed in an executive room and had access to the executive lounge but its not all cracked out to be. Room size of executive is only a bit bigger than standard room which I have stayed in before. Reception staff one day were very poor and forgetful, next day reception staff were great. Location is tops with close access to Darling Harbour and City's main centre.

    Stay was good, not the best in Sydney


    My boyfriend and I stayed at Rydges on Saturday 14th April. We have stayed in several hotels in the Sydney CBD and this hotel was in the middle of our list. The overall appearance of the hotel is clean, comtemporary and simple. We stayed in a standard room, king bed, bathroom with bath and shower, t.v., and mini bar.

    Good quality Sydney hotel


    Needed a hotel in Sydney tonight and after searching a bit on the web, found the Avillion ... sorry, Rydges WOrld Square hotel (the receptionist told me that they own it now) ... through the Rydges website.
