“Another great stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

We had a most enjoyable time at the Rendezvous. We were in Melbourne for the tennis and the location was perfect. Close to transport, shops, cafes etc!!
The staff were most helpful and a credit to the Hotel. The room we had was excellent in size and general facilities. We will be back next year!!!

Room Tip: We had a larger room than last time which made the stay more pleasant. Last time there was a basic...

We chose this hotel for its historic features and architect, we certainly were not let done by is appearance and hospitality, the staff were very happy and were all too willing to assist with arranging transport to and from the airport for a minimal charge. The rooms are very luxurious and the location is central on Flinders street and directly opposite the Flinders st train station...would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: The cheapest rooms here were among the best Ive stayed in anywhere and were nicer than some of the m...

Pretty nice hotel.
The only let down was the hotel cafe, I would expect it to be available more than it was.
Wandered in, middle afternoon and it wasn't available, you had to book for "high tea".
Nice little bar.
Good staff.
Cheers

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking Flinders. Got to be better than looking at another wall.

Awesome location!

The cheaper, booking.com rooms are pretty tiny - if you're going for a bargain. Having said that, the moment I complained about my dissatisfaction (there was an issue with the bathroom), I was quickly upgraded to a far more appropriately-sized room. (ie. not for hobbits)
The service (from reception to concierge) was fantastic.
Pillows could have been a lot better - my only real complaint.

The staff were lovely and very attentive and the conciege very informative :) Room was neat, clean and new and bed was very comfortable loved how we could choose our pillows :0 excellent location on Flinders street close to trams, a short walk to the Crown Casino and pretty much central to everything in the CBD. it was the first time i have stayed there and when we come back down in August we are staying here again but this time in a deluxe room :)

Room Tip: i had no problem with my room no 211

I would highly recommend this hotel! The Rendezvous Grand lives up to its photos, it is in an ideal location, the staff are very friendly and more than willing to help you, I would definitely stay there again. Transport to and from the airport is great to, a free shuttle from Southern Cross station and pick up right outside the door!

We just booked last minute via Expedia.
The hotel is really central just towards the great Flinders Station. You can easily walk to the federation square in about 5 min.
There is also a bottle shop 1min away.

The room was clean and the room service good. The provide 24h food and dine in room service.
You can also use the gym if you want to.
The concierge gives you always a hand if you are in trouble or have some questions!

Really good and friendly service!
I would highly recommend to stay in this hotel.
