Powered by AI

The Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne, nestled conveniently close to an array of public transport options, shopping hubs, and city attractions, is lauded for its location, making it a prime pick for many travelers. While the hotel's historic charm and cozy beds are appreciated, some guests have highlighted small rooms and disturbances from nearby trains and trams. Opinions on value and service are mixed; some commend the staff's friendliness and the hotel's ambiance, others suggest improvements in cleanliness and noise management are needed.

Enjoyed our time in the hotel but the bathroom is small and the shower over the bath awkward. My suggestion would be to remove the bath and leave just a shower which would open up the bathroom area greatly.

All the staff were wonderful and friendly, breakfast hours were great, up to 11am so no rushing in the morning and a large selection.

The hotel is well established and has some luxury feel to it. We stayed two days at the hotel and found the staff very helpful and the rooms well maintained. The Gym facilities where good and allowed me to get in a training session. The rooms are cosy and the beds were great to sleep. The Hotel is ideally positioned to take advantage of the free trams that get you around the CBD. The location is close to trains, trams, taxis and shuttles and makes travel in the Melbourne area very convenient. The WiFi is dated with 256k limit which with today's devices is useless. The hotel has happy hour and a good breakfast restaurant and the staff advised of good eateries near by which provided good food and service. The Hotel does provide other services as well like safe storage of bags and arrange taxis etc ahead of time. Overall a good experience. What you pay extra for in price you more than get back in convenience of travel around Melbourne, convenience of travel within the CBD and convenience close to restaurants. The rooms are gears towards business travelers and offer an excellent array of additional services.

For is it was about being near the station to visit relatives,the fact that the hotel was good was a bonus ,first visit was disappointing due to size of room,on checking out I responded to a question, citing that was a problem and was immediately changed to a better room for the return visit. The restaurant is excellent and deserves its own review, but the biggest bonus was being able to leave our large cases at the hotel free of charge whilst we did our 17 day mini tour of australia

Had a lovely afternoon tea at the Rendezvous Hotel recently. Purchased through an online voucher, the price was very reasonable but it's the excellent service in the restaurant that really stood out. The staff made this catch up with girlfriends a very enjoyable experience.
The hotel is in a great location, across the road from Flinders Street Station and very close to all the wonderful laneways at that end of town. No idea about the accommodation but the hotel has some beautifully renovated rooms on the ground floor.

Stones throw away from southern cross and etihad yet quiet enough not too be disturbed. Awesome location for anyone needing to be in middle of city. Reasonably pricey but happy to pay for location. Comfortable beds with good bathroom.
