“Great location and beautiful Heritage Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

What they have done to restore the beautiful tall ceiling Heritage Rooms is fantastic. There are no other rooms like it in a modern hotel. I have not stayed in a conventional room, but I recommend to pay the extra for the Heritage.

Nice stay!

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for a room with a view, because you also get the Flinders street traffic noise...

On arrival the reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. Checkin was quick and hassle free. My superior room i stayed in was a little small but nonetheless a lovely room. I had a late checkout but found it hard to sleep whilst housekeeping were cleaning rooms beside me all morning.Overall i would recommend an overnight stay or longer at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel as i know i will definitely be coming back very soon.

The location was the best I have experienced in my many trips to Melbourne. Unfortunately my room was too small for 2 people which was disappointing as I checked another room out when I left which would have been perfect for us. Sorry I didnt say something earlier.

Staff were fantastic. Hotel was beautiful. i would stay there again but make sure I get the right room

Room Tip: look for a larger suite if you are staying for more than 2 nights

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed the experience. Brilliant value! Good comfortable rooms and exceptionally quiet. Close to transport, shopping in CBD and South Wharf DFO and South Bank.We found the Concierge were extremely helpful on several occassions. After the hard days shopping the Travellers Bar was very relaxing. The in room bar pricing better than any other which helps having a quiet night in. The hotel offered several incentives to dine in.
Thank you Rendezvous

Building reasonably well located, opposite train station. A few noisy drunks around nearby after 10pm, but felt reasonably safe as there were still plenty of people around.

May stay slightly closer to the inner CBD next time, but rooms, service, value were all good. Only downside was the creaky floors, but that didn't detract overly.

I was here for a week whilst on The Lions Tour. The location is superb. The value of the bar & mini bar in room is incredibly reasonable, often cheaper than prices out.
I was in an excellent room for my needs, I can see if there were 2 people how it might have been quite small.
Did have a slight issue in that the remote sensor light in the bathroom needs to stay on a little longer than it currently does as I showered a couple of times in the dark!!

I loved staying here - I stayed twice on the same trip - on first arrival in Melbourne and once more when I returned after going out of town, I arrived very early in the morning and was immediately impressed by the lovely interior, the grand lobby and especially by the friendly and welcoming reception staff. On the first occasion I had to wait until after 2pm for my room to be ready but the staff went out of the their way to ensure it would be ready earlier. The second time I got access at 11am which was excellent. Both rooms were really comfy, nicely furnished and quiet. The beds were very comfy too. The location on Flinders Street is great. It takes no time to get to and from Southern Cross Station where the Skybus comes into. It's 5 minutes from Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, the NGV Australia, and you're surrounded by places to eat and a supermarket just around the corner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and can't wait to stay again.

Room Tip: I stayed in both the old and new parts of the hotel. The new section was marginally quieter.
