Nice hotel although noisy at times
Great roof garden. Poor sound-proofing of the rooms especially to the corridor. Helpful staff. Easy access to the city centre by tram.

Rydges on Swanston - Melbourne
Staff member not friendly or helpful on check in, messed up our reservation, room was dusty, plus we had a knock & opened the door at 8.30am until I said yes & realised it was the wrong room. On leaving another staff member very friendly & helpful plus stored our bags. Location 10/15 min walk to cbd trams outside, (outside of free zone) park adjacent.
