“We would stay here again”
Reviewed January 27, 2007

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in January. We found the hotel quite comfortable and in a convenient neighborhood close to a metro station. Do check out the Fortune Center a couple of blocks away -- it is an unassuming looking building, but go up a couple of floors and there is a very interesting selection of massage, astrology and chiropractic businesses that we found fascinating. We used the hotel's tour service and were happy with that. There is also an excellent coffee place next door. I can't think of anything negative to say about the Rendezvous, and we would definitely stay here again if we return to Singapore.

Stayed January 2007

We stayed at the Rendezvous Hotel in mid-December of 2006. We checked in at 1pm but they were unable to get us a room until 2pm so we had to wait in the lobby for a bit. So when they gave us our room key at 2pm, we went upstairs to our room and the lady was still cleaning so we had to wait in the hallway while she finished up. Not sure if there is some sort of communication problem there but when they say we can check-in by 2pm, I expect to check-in hassle free by that time. Although they checked us into a non-smoking room, there was definitely a smoke odor so we had to change rooms. The room was decent with a nice view but the shower was very disappointing. We had the tap turned to the hottest setting and that was just barely comfortable enough. The hotel was within walking distance to the subway and had a bunch of restaurants nearby for lunch/dinner. We would stay there again despite the hassles that we encountered.

  • Liked — close to restaurants

My wife and I stayed here for three nights at the end of November. We booked via the Rendezvous Hotel group’s own website, chose a room on the 7th floor, and requested a room away from the main road, which we were given, so top marks to the check-in staff. Our room was well fitted with good aircon, and kept very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful, with advice on transport etc..

The hotel is in a great location, from the pavement outside you can catch a bus to almost anywhere in southern Singapore, and just a block away is the Dobi Ghaut MTR station. Bras Basah road changes into Orchard Road outside the hotel, so if not too hot you can walk to all the shopping malls. Raffles hotel is an easy walk, useful after a few Singapore Slings in the Long Bar!

I bought one day’s wifi from the hotel for SGD11.60, before I discovered that the Olympic Centre one block away offers completely free wifi 24x7 – and there’s a Starbucks there too, where the staff are very friendly and helpful. In fact everyone in Singapore was friendly, some a little too friendly, avoid being tempted into conversation by the tailors in Chinatown, or before you know it you’ll have ordered a suit and half a dozen shirts.

We never ate in the hotel, as there’s a Kopitiam food court right next door, for great value breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with about a dozen different Asian cuisines on offer.

We’d definitely stay there again; good rooms, helpful staff, great value and great location.

This hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from a metro station. The breakfast buffet had a decent variety of both eastern and western foods. My room was slightly on the small side, but not overly cramped.

Great location and very comfortable beds but this hotel was nothing special. Its main benefit was the location - close to little india and orchard road so we didn't need to use taxis very often. On occasions the service was poor - the main issue was when we paid the bill and two phone calls made were charged at more than we expected when we were told by the operator they would cost much less - instead of apologising, the manager told us he would charge the difference to the operator! They were not partcularly willing to accomodate us when we asked if we could have a late check out as out flight was not until 10 in the evening - they only managed to extend our check out by 1 hour! All in all the hotel was a little sterile and not particularly friendly. Wouldn't stay here again as all the small annoyances mounted up and I'd rather stay somewhere else.

I was very pleased with this hotel. I found the Clarion to be very clean and the staff friendly. The hotel is located near the subway line and I found it easy to navigate to and from the area. Little India is in walking distance and the nearest halker stand is only a block away (where the food is cheap) !

We arrived at this hotel after a nine hour flight from London and we were dealt with very efficiently and professionally. We had a three night stop over there before travelling on to Australia. Hotel room was nice with everything we desired. We did not eat in the hotel however we did look at the menu and everything appeared reasonably priced.

Singapore itself is beautiful - everything is so clean and the people are so disciplined and make you very welcome. We had a trip to Sentosa Island - again beautiful (although the guide was a bit of Sergeant Major and we didn't have an awful lot of time to do our own thing). We also went on the Whacky Duck ride which gave us a tour of the city and then a sail down the river. We went to Raffles for a "Singapore Sling" and although it was expensive it was something you just had to do.

We weren't leaving Singapore until early evening and we had to check out at 12.00. We were given another room until we left (at no extra charge). We spent a couple of hours at the pool and spa before travelling and because this was deserted we were perfectly chilled out before leaving. The bar staff were also very friendly and informative.

All in all I would not hesitate to use this hotel again. It was a perfect start to a perfect holiday.
