            Great location, close to shopping & Crown Casino

            Toilet should have been facing the bathroom door not the shower

            • Average rating
          • Group of friends

            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"

          • Family with children

            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.

            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.

            Room was really small and walls were dirty.

            The lighting in the room was very dim. I had to use a torch to read my book. It was very hard to fill out breakfast menus I had to go into the bathroom so I could see.

            Location is great, tram and train stations are just at the door steps. The room is comfy. The staffs are friendly and helpful.

            Location excellent and room whilst modest in size was well equipped and clean.Bed too soft for us is the only complaint.

            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.
