“Fantastic centenary saver deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I spent 2 nights at this historic place. All staff had been very attentive and helpful. My room was nicely decorated and clean.
The hotel is very good located in the heart of Melbourne CBD.
Will come back for sure!

Great location for the Rendezvous Hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights there. Room was clean and very well presented, we were positioned at the end of a corridor and found it very quiet. So close to DeGrieves laneway where there is fabulous food, there's a Coles around the corner for essentials and so close to the train.

Excellent location for our first time in Melbourne. Nice old building. Easy check in and out. Nice and friendly staff. Rooms are on the small side, but comfortable, bathroom is very small, but the awesome shower made up for that. Our room was facing the Flinders street train station. Yes you can hear the trains when you are in the room, but put in some earplugs and you wouldn't even know they were there. About a 8 min walk to the casino and 20 min walk to AAMI stadium. Very close to Regent theatre if you are going to see a musical. Overall just a excellent area to stay.

We stayed one night in a Heritage room. Would definitely say it is one of the most beautiful hotel rooms I have ever stayed with the beautiful ceilings and lead light windows. We booked a romance package on the hotels website which came with breakfast, dinner and in-room inclusions of wine, strawberries and canopies. Sadly it was the in-room inclusions where the service was terrible as the only thing in the room was the wine and after having to chase up the strawberries and canopies we where told we had to go to the downstairs bar to receive the canopies - seriously flawed - as their website clearly stated they were provided in room on arrival. When we went down to the bar it was so crowed that we just went onto dinner. Dinner at the hotel's restaurant was fabulous and showcased how outstanding Melbourne dining is. We would definitely return to the Rendevous, but not sure we would bother with the Romance package.

Room Tip: The Rendezvous "Straits" restaurant is well worth a visit - enjoy!

Dear parklane44,

Many thanks for taking the time to post your comments on Tripadvisor.

Firstly it was wonderful to hear your enjoyed our Heritage Rooms. The team have put a huge amount of work into ensuring we capture the charm and heritage feel of these wonderful 100 year old rooms.

However, it was troubling to hear of the service issues you experienced with your romance package. It is clear that we have not communicated properly and followed through on your needs, for this I apologise on behalf of the whole team. Our hotel packages are some of our biggest sellers and we pride ourselves on delivering on these promises. I can assure you we will be reviewing how the package is delivered to ensure we are meeting our valued guest’s expectations.

I look forward to having you back to the hotel. Please feel free to contact the team direct to ensure you obtain the best rate for your next stay.

Kind Regards

Alexander Billing
General Manager

Location is perfect, close to trains and trams. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are small but clean and well appointed. Despite being opposite the train station and in the heart of Melbourne it is very quiet and conducive to a restful experience.

We have spend four days in this hotel. It's one of the oldest hotels in Melbourne, just in front of the historical central station. You can feel like the travellers from last century but with all modern comodities. Perfect location to know this vibrant city.
