The wall is a bit thin, so I can hear people talking from next door.
The shower was suddenly dripping at the mid night, it was quite scary.
But the location is good that it is very closed to CBD and station

I found the service and room standard very good, bordering on great. The hotel environment was warm and welcoming. I found the standard of the room was of a high standard. Some other commercial hotel chains are not to the same standard.
I would recommend this hotel very highly and will be staying there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter, however even on the lower floors the noice was minimal

Great position. Have stayed in lots of motels in Melbourne but this position was probably the best for ease of getting around. We were lucky to get a room with a "balcony" so able to step out to take some photos. Other reviews have said the rooms were small, which it was, but not a worry at all. Plenty of room for the two of us and my shopping! Loved the bar area. Made it our before and after dinner stop! We will be back!

Room Tip: We were on 8th floor. Only noise was clickity clack of trains but not a worry at this height.;

There are a number of rooms that do have a balcony, each facing Southbank. So it’s so great to hear that you were able to take advantage of this. The location of the hotel is one of the most popular features of the hotel, so we’re glad that you enjoyed this aspect.

Thank you Pam R for your wonderful review, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel again in the near future.

I nearly always choose to stay at the Rendezvous because of the location, friendly service and price.
The rooms aren't huge and there is no view but I don't go there to stay in my hotel room. It's a great place to come back to at the end of a power packed day. The beds are comfy, the food and the food is lovely. If you want a hotel experience stay somewhere else but if you want a good bed and a lovely meal stay at this hotel.

Loved our stay here, close to everything, shops, restaurants, Southbank. Room was clean, and filled with lovely toiletries. We felt very welcome here. Only slight downfall was only one bar attendant on the Friday evening so service for our drinks a bit slow. But really didn't impact at all on our relaxing stay.

Rendezvous Grand Hotel is very convenient place to stay in the heart of Melbourne CBD. Quite accessible with the free Tram around the city. Short stroll along the city area and central station. Rooms are very cozy but impressive with the overall looks of the hotel. The room were always clean & tidy. The foyer, hallways and ballroom where absolutely fine and the food was quite excellent.

Room Tip: View it properly when you book.
