    Great deal, has to be close to 4 stars in every way

    Had 11am check out unconfirmed at desk and card was deactivated 9.30am

  • Older travelers

    The meals were great,friendly staff.that's all I liked.

    I didn't like the dirty bed,silicon covered bathroom,bar fridge hot, 1 towel each,curtains didn't close properly, overpriced over rated. Novatel stkilda puts this hotel to shame.. go elsewhere or go to Collins street ..

  • Family with children

    Very convenient to Melbourne University which I was attending. Also very helpful and friendly staff.

    Spa - water level low and looked a bit dirty.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The location

    Room 211 shower tiles and grout dirty and shower head dripping, 2nd door stiff, taps hard to turn on and off also basin taps, dirty cups twice after room service (returned to reception second time), mint lollies missing from bar stock on arrival,only one tea spoon, air con did not appear to work properly, no fresh milk only campers milk! Nowhere for two people to sit and watch tv only on the bed, for an executive queen suite I was disappointed.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Close to Univ of Melbourne, Lygon St cafes & restaurants, trams to Melbourne Baths, downtown shopping, Glen Iris to visit family, and St Kilda Beach/Luna park. Taxi ride to Port Melbourne for a family dinner on the Sat night.

    Earthquake through the mattress every time my wife moved in bed woke me up. Suggest mattresses that do not have this problem.

    The staff were excellent

    Bathrooms need renovation, spa was not ready for use :(

    Place could be improved ! never to forget to mention that it would be nice to have someone to carry the luggage to the room

  • Older travelers

    Wonderfully comfortable bed!!

    The rooms are quite small, and as a double room only have single chair etc.

    The price - Melbourne was booked out so no alternatives

  • Single
    6.6

    The bed was comfortable. The size of the bedroom is good.

    I did not like the high price for the room because when I arrived at 4.30pm there were jack hammers going in the floor above me that did not stop until after 5.15pm; the next morning hammering started at 7.00am in the room above me. Also the shower room needed upgrading with new tiling and fittings in this room. It was impossible to open the window for fresh air. I do not like air conditioning

    The rooms where great and there was nothing complexed about the whole stay thanks

  • Single
    3.2

    Booked a night there because it was close to uni. I knew I was staying late at uni, so I booked a room here for me to go back to take a nap before next morning's presentation. I did not predict that I had to stay at uni till 6am the next morning, however, I went back to the hotel to take a quick hot shower. Who knew the hot shower turned into a cold one. That's all I wanted from you, Rydges On Swanston, yet you could not satisfy me. Not to mention the smell of toilet in the whole building, that was disgusting. Staff members were rude. Will never stay again.

    Short walk to City, Rooftop Pool & Spa :)

    Elevator was very slow, taking the stairs was much quicker...

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    The Restaurant and Bar

    Bit of a muck up with the bookings which had been split and the second one could not be found initially.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    The service staff provided excellent service.

    The rooms were very tired looking and housekeeping did not clean the room properly.
