“Clean, comfortable rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Stayed here in March for a couple of nights during an extended stay in Melbourne. Booked last minute on a cheap rate. I had a room directly on flinders st overlooking the train station and was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was even in peak hour. While the room was quite small it was clean comfortable and offered modern facilities will definitely be back!

This is a great location for the city and also Southbank. Staff were personable, welcoming and helpful. Room, although small, was impeccably clean and well serviced every day. Conference facilities and catering were excellent. A pleasant surprise, and a change from the impersonal service usually on offer in Melbourne hotels.

Room Tip: Most rooms look out onto brick walls. Rooms on the eastern side seem to be the ones with views.

I've now stayed at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel 4 times and feel like they are responding to the reviews. The location is excellent for newbies to Melbourne. My stay was also part of a conference which I believe was the perfect venue for food and venue. It's not necessarily a place I would bring families but definitely the spot for business and couples.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the building. It's much quieter than the back.

My bff and I had a great long weekend in this hotel, the concierge and reception were lovely and the location is just great, within walking distance to all the famous laneways and streets of Melbourne. I thought it would be quite noisy with the location being so close to Flinders St Station but there was minimal noise, although the rooms are quite small and it was easy to hear the people in the next room. All in all a perfectly comfortable room and everybody was friendly and helpful.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our second three-night stay in this lovely Hotel, this time in Heritage room 438, which was exquisitely furnished and included a luxurious en-suite. We experienced excellent service everywhere, from the friendly Reception staff to the expert waiters in Straits Restaurant where we enjoyed delicious buffet breakfasts and a superb a la carte dinner. The Traveller's Bar is a gem also - we enjoyed a delicious light meal and drink here on one night. The Rendezvous Grand enjoys a very convenient city location, close to trams, buses and trains, so our daily visits to the Melbourne Flower and Garden Show were trouble free. I hope we will have the opportunity of staying here again.

Room Tip: I loved the superior heritage room better than the "De Luxe"one we stayed in last time

Stayed here for 8 nights in July 2011. They had hotel front renovations happening when we arrived. Got shown to our room and requested a change as there was scaffolding and workman right outside the window. New room was marginally better although so hot as we couldnt work the air conditioning. Centrally located Hotel though.
