“Good location but really hard beds!”
Reviewed August 28, 2008

Rendezvous Singapore is in a good location, very close to Ghoby Daut MRT and therefore quiet central. It is in close walking distance to Orchard Road and Raffles Hotel.

The room I was in (single person) was quiet small but had everything with a view over the pool. However I found the beds SO hard! Apaprently its a very Chinese thing but I felt bruised by morning. To combat this, the hotel has a great hot pool and large simming pool as well as gym facilities.

I found the staff to be nothing special, pretty uninterested in general, especially when i asked if I could change rooms due to the bed.

I booked through another online company and when it came to paying the bill, that which was quoted to me was not what was presented to me when checking out. There are of course extra taxes which I was fully aware of but, I am including this in the review purely for other travellers to check over their bills and potentially make a fuss if its wrong!

All in all, a good hotel, not great but a fabulous location and stay in singapore.

I have stayed at the Rendezvous four times and keep coming back because of the relatively good price and great location. I can't stand the hustle and bustle of Orchard Road and love the quiet surrounds of Bras Basah with its Museums, Galleries and Library. It's a short walk to the MRT, Clarke Quay and Fort Canning. The service isn't great - something inevitably goes wrong - twin went I want double (or vice versa), forget to deliver newspaper, non-smoking room with the faint smell of smoke. But it's often the best on price and for that I can overlook these issues - you have to have some patience to stay at the Rendezvous.

Rendezvous was almost my second home from 2001-2004, during which time I visited Singapore almost every second month, and always stayed at this hotel. Excellent location, great service, and used to be a great view too (the garden view rooms were a great catch, but I believe there has been some construction there recently).

The rooms are average sized, clean and the service is usually pretty prompt . The fact that its very close to the orchard road is an added bonus. The staff is very friendly and usually are able to help with most of the stuff.

The food is quite nice - buffet is good, however in-dining room service menu is a little limited, expecially round the clck orders.

Its not very heavy on the pocket too! Great place to stay on a sight-seeing break, as the place is pretty central, well connected, and generally cheerful! I wouldnt mind going back there!

The Rendezvous is just about the perfect property in Singapore. This is the fourth time my family and I have stayed here, and the property is always clean, the staff welcoming, and the standards of service second to none. We have also stayed at The York (terrible) and the Westin Stamford (excellent, but pricey), so the Rendezvous stacks up well on all counts. Just the perfect location and everything done right. Couldn't be better, and that's why we will always return to the
Rendezvous.

We stayed at the Rendezvous for two nights as part of a tour package and were well pleased with the hotel which was very reasonably priced. Check-in staff were polite, friendly and efficient. Our room was large, clean, well appointed and quiet and had a pleasant garden view. Hotel is a centrally located to most attractions and the consierge was very helpful with bus schedules, possible taxi trip costs and directions. We had one breakfast there which was good and enjoyed 'High Tea' in the Palong one afternoon. The swimming pool is big enough for a decent swim and I had a few. We would stay there again and will recommend it to our friends.

spent one night at the hotel, Chose it for its location and it didn't disapoint. It was only 2 blocks away from sim lim and a short cab ride away from funan. Overall an Ok experience but the rooms could be a bit bigger.

We booked a room for three which turned out to be two single beds and a trundle bed. The trundle bed was still quite comfortable. Our room was quiet and looked out over the pool. The room was quite dated and small but clean and comforable. Had some trouble with the shower as it had only one tap for the bath and shower and you had to hold a button in to use the shower but once we worked it out the shower was great - lots of pressure and hot water.
Did not eat in the hotel restaurant. We ate at the Turkish cafe, Coffee Club which are in the gourmet gallery in the hotel courtyard. we also had breakfast at Kopitam which is just up the road. Dhoby Gout MRT is about a 3 min walk. We found the motel to be very central.It was clean and we found the staff to be friendly and courteous.
WOuld definitely stay here again as it was just so conveniently located.
