We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of our Aussie Odyssey, and the final night before we flew home. I made the booking by emailing directly to the hotel, and they were fantastic, everything I asked for was delivered, a fourth floor room with a balcony giving views of both the Bridge and Opera House. Unfortunately we never met him, but many thanks to Damien Kelly for making our holiday so special.

The location is super, smack in the heart of The Rocks. Close enough to the tourist centre, bars, cafes, shops, and restaurants, but just far enough away from the hurly burly for a quiet night’s sleep. Circular Quay is five minutes walk away so every possible form of transport, including the airport train, is right there.

As well as the balcony, our room had a double bed, plus plenty of space for the sitting area, dining area, and fully equipped kitchenette. The room was clean, well fitted, and the bed comfortable, the bathroom had a bath with shower. We didn’t eat at the hotel, but only because we were out so early and back so late each day.

The hotel has two pay-per-use internet machines, and a wireless network that didn’t work at all when we were there. The Rocks tourist centre also has an internet café, and offers 30 minutes free wireless access for laptop users.

We felt the location and standard of the hotel was excellent value. If you join the Rendezvous Hotel’s eClub programme (free to join), you get a 5% discount on bookings using the group’s website.

You'd be mad to miss it!

Great location, well-equipped room and kitchen, balcony with fabulous view of the Opera House, Harbour and the bridge. Staff were low-key but very helpful. Best value in The Rocks.

Not sure what hotel some of the reviewers stayed in but after three stays we think this is best value in Sydney. Location could not be better. A bright sparkling clean room with a kitchenette and a small balcony with a view that includes the bridge AND the Opera House!
For many multiples more money you could stay at Four Seasons or Westin and have comparable views and an equal location but why spend the money! Our only disappointment was that during our first 2 stays breakfast was included .. now it is a high priced add on. Try the small bakery a short walk down the stairs to the next lower street.

Stayed in this hotel for three nights. The studio room was clean and well furnished and the staff helpful at all times. Continental breakfast was perfectly adequate to start the day.
The location was perfect, being just a short walk to Circular Quay, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Darling Harbour was also within walking distance but public transport (bus or ferry) was excellent should you rather not walk.
We did the Harbour Bridge Climb which was a fantastic experience. The professionalism and safety aspects were second to none and the climb was not as arduous as I first thought.
Also visited Taronga Zoo which afforded a different perspective of the harbour, and took the Bondi Explorer bus for a trip around the city which I recommend. The beach at Bondi is okay but the surrounding shops and accommodation made it look like a shanty town and it was frankly very disappointing.
Excellent food at the Opera Bar on the lower concourse of the Opera House but in truth there are so many eateries to choose from.
We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in this fantastic city and recommend the Rendezvous Stafford.

We Stayed at the Rendevous Hotel on the night of the 7th of October 2006 to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We purchased a "Romantic" Package which included amongst other things a 'Room with a View' . The Hotel is on the smaller size about 61 rooms and is in a really great position in the Rocks, with its own security parking below the hotel. The room itself was a reasonable size (we were on the 5th floor), clean and tidy, with its own basic kitchenette, microwave and fridge. Our room had a small balcony acessed by sliding doors with a table and chairs. The view is unbeatable for the price with great views from the Opera House all the way around to the Harbour Bridge, we could even see the bridge climbers. The room overall was comfortable and had everything that we needed (comfortable bed and a shower with heaps of pressure). Complimentary Tea and Coffee are included. Bathrooms are basic. Breakfast is next to the pool and is a basic continental but fine. I would recommend booking a room with a view as without the view its just another hotel room.
All in all we had a great time and would recommend this hotel to friends, however it is just across the road from the police station and can be noisy especially on saturday nights.
