First time in Melbourne

I visited this hotel in the middle of Aug 2014. I was on biz trip in Melbourne. I can't say this hotel is good to family but if you're biz man and looking for reasonable price hotel. This hotel is right answer for you. The hotel room size and price is perfect and it's quite good place to stay and easy to access to any other place. Around hotel , has big station and over this station, you can see good sightseeing such as river and some forest. And if you enjoy some at night, this hotel is good to you, behind this hotel, there is many beer pub and bar. also you can take some good souvenir around hotel w/ cheap price. FYI, if you're asian , you can buy some thing easily around this hotel. In the room, Wifi is too slow for me, I'm not sure whether only my room has that kind of problem or not, but I has problem. LAN cable is work quite well. Toilet wise, there is no bath and no tooth-brush and no razor in bathroom due to green energy policy. But if I have to select bad thing is staff at front desk. this hotel staff is a little unfriendly, when I checked out.

Good location

We like Rendevous because it is reasonably close to Crown Casino. Initially we were given a twin room, but they quickly changed this when I approached them. Staff were very friendly.

Horrible Sound Insulation, Terrible WIFI and poor House Keeping

We were placed in room 425, which was on the 4th floor facing Spencer St station and just outside our door was the gym. The sound insulation was so terrible, we could hear every train that passed by and people running on treadmills in the gym not to mention the running and talking of the staff. The "free" WIFI provided was 256k speed, which is essentially useless, we could not even load some of our emails let alone browse any content rich websites. On Sunday morning, we left our room at 10am and returned at approximately 4pm only to find that house keeping has not attended to the room. There are only 9 levels in the whole hotel, does it take more than 6 hours? The lobby staff was rude and unhelpful. In conclusion, this is an outdated hotel that is desperately trying to cling onto its former glory. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, just not worth the time.

Hallah on Victoria Road near Queen Victoria Market offers one of the best Korean BBQ in the area. Absolutely amazing service and scrumptious food.

Great location and value

Recent renovation makes you travel in time 100 years. Beautiful decor and tasteful design. The rooms are not that comfortable and the cleaning staff don't really clean, they just flatten the sheets and that's it. Paid Internet is overly expensive and the free one in the lobby extremely slow (as in every hotel).

Our stay at the hotel was marvellous. Staff and facilities were excellent with parking next door. Close to many CBD and Melbourne attractions with plenty of transport options at the front door. Look forward to staying again in the near future.

Good for short stay, or a nights get away

Was very impressed with our first greeting by staff member Adam. Room was a lot smaller than We hoped but extremely clean. Fantastic location with skybus at the door and walking distance to shops, Crown casino, etc. Lovely bar down stairs with very relaxed and warm atmosphere. Would recommend for great value and location, but remember room is small.

Lovely old hotel

We had a great time the staff were excellent. The room was well appointed and very clean. The only disappointment was we didn't have much to see out of the window.

Perfect city location

We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere at this lovely old hotel. Beautiful facade and architecture, intimate bar area and virtually opposite flinders st station - so convenient. We found our deluxe room clean and comfortable although a little dark and small. The large screen tv looked a bit out of place in the heritage type room and wasn't a clear picture. Plenty of tea, coffee included and fresh milk available from reception on request. 24 hr room service and fluffy robes in wardrobe were a nice addition and the queen bed was comfy. We were impressed with the friendly staff and would be happy to do another overnight or weekend stay.

Degraves St is a wonderful location for breakfast, coffee and/or people watching. Also the French cafe in Hardware lane (next to the macaron shop) does delicious gluten free galettes and you can practise your French language skills with the waitresses while you wait for your order
