Ideal location if you’re seeing a show in Melbourne’s theatre district but that is the only aspect working in Rydge’s favour. When I arrived, the hotel couldn’t find my booking as they had taken the dates down wrong somehow although the email confirmation I’d received had been correct. Then once this was fixed, I was put in a double room even though I’d requested a twin. Fortunately this was quickly sorted, but it was irritating. So too was the extreme slowness of the hote elevators and the long, loud flushing of the toilet in our bathroom and the loud in room air conditioner which would rev like an engine every few minutes.
