Very happy the room was great and the single beds comfy, just a few points though.
Air con was a bit loud after it kicks in so my friend said that was a pain. TV, very hard to work out stations, lucky as I don't watch it much anyway. The spa downstairs wasn't warm, the pool ok.
Couldn't fault the front desk lady, very helpful and friendly always smiled and asked us if everything ok!
Breakfast was great, pancakes the best.
I would stay there again for sure, I booked through expedia.com.

Room Tip: Third floor, ours had a kitchen fully equipped. There is a safe, we could go out knowing our ipad...

Dear Helen,

Thank you for your feedback and I do apologise that we did not live up to the excellent standards which we strive to provide.

I was disappointed to learn that Air Con was a bit loud and the spa wasn't warm. This is certainly unacceptable and will address this as a priority to ensure this will not happen again. I have also shared your feedback with my team regarding "Very Helpful and friendly service you have experienced " during your stay.

Once again, thank you for letting us know about your stay and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to Rendezvous Hotel Sydney The Rocks and exceed your expectations.

Kind regards,

Stayed here for 5 nights 23rd April- 28th. when booking we asked for a room that had a view, not what we got we where given a room looking onto a public walkway. noisy with people leaving the hotel drunk and had to walk past our room. The T.V. remote control was put together with masking tape, so when we tried to change channels it was just hopeless. We could not use the cooker as there was a sign saying if we sat the alarm off we would have to pay $1,200 fine for fire brigade fee, what a joke. Then don't even bother trying to get their free wi fi it's a hit and miss. The feeling of the whole place spoilt our holiday. I would never stay there again.

This hotel is so conveniently located in the heart of the Circular Quay district. Very charming and old fashioned with many modern updates. The staff is great and overall, a great place to stay. Safe, quaint and a cool place. Looking forward to staying there again if and when we get to Sydney.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the opera house if available.

Stayed here for 4 nights over Easter 2014 in a 1 bedroom/harbour view apartment.....Not cheap but then nothing is in this area. All aspects of this place were great, except for the horrid bath towels that were so so rough and scratchy - would have thought for the price we paid some nice soft and fluffy ones would have been provided. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure as well. We had a little kitchen which was handy. You can never tire of sitting on the balcony and taking in the great view of the Opera House and Bridge. We also watched 2 huge passenger liners depart at night. The hotel has a pool which we didn't use but sure it would be handy in summer. Everything we wanted was within a few minutes walk - Opera House, Bridge, Circular Quay to catch buses, the train straight to the Airport and a huge choice of eating places.

Special mention to Julia on Reception - extremely helpful, cheery and always with a smile on her face - makes a big difference when you are greeted with a smile....

Would have no hesitation staying here again, much nicer than the HUGE hotels in other areas and more personal.

Room Tip: Pay the extra $ and get a harbour view room

When we first booked this I thought it seemed a bit expensive,however after looking at other hotels in the Rocks area I feel it was OK value. Bit confused about the actual room we were getting until we checked in,however it was a suite with a view of the harbour and was perfect for us. I would echo some other reviewers that stated the rooms could use a coat of paint and a general tidy up.
Staff were friendly and helpful,looked after our suitcases for several hours both before check in and after check out. They have an offer of a car to Sydney airport for $50.00,turns out that is a good deal if the are 3 or more of you. The train cost $45.00 for the 3 of us and we had to drag our bags the 2. Blocks to the train station!

We stayed here in March 2014 , a fantastic location for the Rocks , out of the hotel two small flights of stairs and you are right in the action , ferry tours , bars , train station, the Opera House and of course the bridge, all on your doorstep. We had a room at the top with a perfect view of the Opera House , it was a large self catering room ideal for the weeks stay.The Hotel was fine but rooms getting a bit dated though. Their house keeping was good , done daily without having to request it , done as if by magic because we never actually seen anyone doing them. They do have a restaurant but was never open while we were there so if thats what you want don't count on it , plenty of good places to eat minutes from the Hotel that they cannot compete with , the reason for the closed restaurant. Breakfast was awful , I booked it once, I walked in and walked out, they said the cost wasn't refundable but I persuaded them it was, plenty of coffee bars around so wouldn't bother.

Room Tip: Top floor facing the the Harbour, great views , cannot get better.Air con was fine and quiet.

Location is fantastic. Staff excellent. Highly recommend this hotel BUT don't be fooled by the heritage terraces accomodation like we were. Pics look passable but in real life it is sad. The terraces are just the facade and the inside looks like it had a makeover about the 80's, maybe early 90's &has been left there. Shabby& not chic!! However Rates have moved with the times and were very chic and not shabby!! Not worth it. the sofa would look more appealing waiting on the curb for collection. &Just to add...... You can't use the cooking facilities due to the risk of fire alarm going off &incurring a $1200 fire brigade fee ( according to the signs posted in the kitchen& on the appliances! The modern part of hotel is lovely and staff were very understanding. I expect they have heard this before.

Room Tip: Don't choose the heritage terrace
