                The price was very reasonable and the location, staff and cleanliness of the hotel were faultless.

                The lights in the bathroom are motion sensitive and occasionally went out whilst in the shower (which was located behind the door and therefore not in view of the motion sensor). The room lighting was either too bright or too dull as the room did not offer either dimmer switches or bedside lamps and my particular room offered little natural light.

                Very convenient for the CBD and the tourist bus & tram

                The hotel won an award in 2010 for renovations - i don't think they checked room 728. While my hotel room was cleaned every day thoroughly - it was disappointing to see such stained carpet; also as the ventilation in the bathroom was not good, there was a faint smell of "drains"

                The locality was great. Room service was excellant and the staff very helpful.

                Wardrobe to small - you can't fully unpack if staying for a week or more. And the shower design allows the water to run out around the toilet and the vanity.

                As a seasoned traveller this would rate the lowest. please if i can save you money i will be happy other wise enter at own risk. Small dull rooms,continual noise all night. Hard beds. Complained about noise all night told i should expect that from inner city hotel. Breakfast cold and limited selection.

                Location is good. the foyer is very good

                Bathrooms were terrible. They are very very small for even small person. Shower water comes our all over . They know it and has written and gives extra towel. The sink even small kids cannot use. Room is very very small. I would like some refund as non of those are mentioned in your write up. This is not acceptable deal as they do charge premium without telling truth. you should talk with them and get me refund.

                Good service and hospitality and in a great location being right across from flinders street station so it was in walking distance of everything.

                We found staying at the Rendezvous was extremely central to whatever we wanted to do in the city. The tram station was right outside our hotel and alot of things where in walking distance also. We would stay there again only for location is was perfect. Though the rooms are little cramped.

                Good location

                Poor service. Failure to disclose full information. Room description stated inclusion of bath tub and and breakfast for two. I didn't have a room with a bath tub and the breakfast was not included in the fee in the end. I called the night before to check if breakfast was free and the concierge said yes.
