Good central location

Everything was great except for the fact that it is easy to hear other guests in nearby rooms or in the corridor. Early in the morning there was a long period of time when we could hear rushing water and it kept us awake. We are not sure what was causing it. We caught trams on St Kilda Road and needed to get to Southern Cross Railway station so it's location was ideal. We got help with a wakeup call and had trouble with our credit card so we appreciated the help of the staff.

Great location, limited value

The appearance and location of the hotel is excellent. The staff were very friendly and always available. For the price you pay, There should be some kitchen facilities in room, especially in the deluxe room. Although comfortable, the room is quite small which was also disappointing.

Romantic Getaway!

This is about the fifth time we've stayed at The Rendevous, and it never disappoints! The professionalism of the staff, is second to none! The close proximity from Flinders Street station, is just perfect! We had an amazing meal, including a delicious bucket of prawns, with dipping sauces, and a steak, that was cook, to our liking, to perfection! I would highly recommend this historic hotel!

Room size

I found the deluxe room not meeting my requirements, the room was very small, and the shower over the bath gave you no room to move.

Great Getaway for Melbourne

This hotel is first class. We were greeted professionally by Beth. She was very helpful and took the trouble to find a room for us more quickly as we arrived early. I've stayed here for work many times and love the hotel, professional staff and location.

Great central location

This was my second stay here and I will be back again. It is clean and modern in the rooms and yet has the beautiful character of the 100 year old building that it is. So central to Federation Square and the Flinder's Street Station, fantastic restaurants very close by - down the nearby lanes. The service was fantastic we can't fault this place and we will be back next year.

Wonderful Anniversary Trip

The room is small and the bathroom is tiny, but overall I find the room acceptable. One thing I do not like is the sensor in the bathroom near the door. The lights automatically switches off after 5-10 minutes if it sensed no movement in the area. Because of this, you could not bathe in peace. You need to shower quickly in case the bathroom light goes off suddenly and you will have to finish your shower in complete darkness. Besides that, I am happy with the bathroom. There are many reviews regarding how tiny the bathroom is, but I appreciate that it has just been renovated and looks new and clean. The worst thing anyone could walk into is a hotel room with a dark and old bathroom. As it is a very old hotel, it is beautiful but at the same time only has 2 tiny lifts. During check-out time, you will see the lift lobby at every floor filled with guests with bulky luggages waiting inpatiently for their turn to enter the lift. If something can be done to make the lift-taking a better experience, I believe it will surely attract more guests to go back to them. The location is good as we basically walk to almost everywhere from the hotel. We occasionally take the City Circle Tram, but most of the time we walked. Lots of life around that area, plenty of shops, eateries etc. Friendly hotel staff who chatted with us and greeted us whenever there is an opportunity. Thumbs up for that! :)

Don't miss the City Circle Tram (Free Tourist Tram). It is free and conveniently located a short walk from the hotel. Hop on and off at the many stops that brings you to some of the major attractions and shopping areas in Melbourne central.

Good base for a city break

A pleasant and comfortable place to stay. We appreciated the 24 hour check in as our plane was very late arriving. My only complain was the lack of (Optus) mobile ceverage in our room. Telstra was OK for my husband. We were on e sixth floor with a high rise building outside our window which was probably the cause. i could put up with it on a 3 day holiday but this could be a real issue for business travellers!

A Little disappointed

Overall my stay was fine, the location is absolutely wonderful, right on Flinders Street. The staff are personable and eager to help. There are great coffee places nearby and the conference location was only steps from the hotel, however, this is the first occasion that I have stayed at the Rendezvous and not been very happy with my room. When I walked in the heater was on and the room was VERY hot , that was easily fixed but the room looked as if the cleaning staff had been interrupted while doing the room. There was rubbish in the little bar area and in the bathroom. It wasn't that big of deal and I didn't report it because it took me only a minute to tidy up. Will this stop me from going there next year- of course not, because the location and overall service are fantastic.
