Rendezvous Hotel Sydney The Rocks

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Great place to stay, location terrific, room excellent. They did not disclose before booking or arrival, their $100 dollar a night bond which they take if you have a debit, not credit card. Still waiting for our money back! Staff coolly polite but not over-eager to assist. As there was a small fire and evacuation at 4am on our last night there, one would have hoped for the breakfast cafe MIGHT have been opened at 5am when we were allowed back in...but no hot cuppa for us.

Room Tip: choose a room near the fire stairs

If you want to be able to walk to the harbour, visit the Harbour Bridge (a walk up the pylon for $13 gives views and history well worth the cost), see the Opera House, various art galleries and museums and explore the sites of The Rocks this hotel is in the perfect spot. It backs onto a laneway with the Susannah Museum restored to look as it did in years long gone giving an authentic feel to your stay in The Rocks. It is off the main thoroughfares so we had no traffic noise but it is a short walk to trains including the airport link, and buses. Look for the free green bus into the city! We stayed in a standard queen room which had a clean bathroom and a well equipped kitchen, although there are so many cafés and restaurants nearby you will be tempted out every night. The buffet breakfast was enjoyable. We didn't get time to try the heated pool and spa but they looked great. The only trouble we had was that the hotel was full and the hot water ran out about 6:30 Sat night but it reheated in an hour or so in time for a hot shower before bed. The staff were more than helpful happy to give advice and directions concerning transport and other requirements. We were able to leave our luggage on the last day, having checked out at 10, make the most of our time and return to pick it up, and use the facilities, before heading out to the airport. We would love to stay there again.

This hotel is in the perfect area. The Rocks is close to everything. And there were taxis everywhere and easily hailed. My room had a kitchen and a balcony that overlooked the Sydney Bridge and Harbour. I was really impressed. Morning tea on the balcony reading the paper was excellent. As were drinks on the balcony before bed. The staff were more than helpful, especially when I wanted to go to a show at Sydney Opera House. While I didn't use the pool or spa, they looked good. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a balcony overlooking the harbour.

This was my first time at the Rendezvous and having stayed at most of the Rocks end of Sydney hotels it was very very acceptable. Clean and tidy,very quiet with great staff and so close to some of the Rocks great eating and drinking establishments. Make a great place for a weekend getaway.

We stayed in a very nice 1 bedroom 2-storey terrace house at the RendezVous hotel, The Rocks. Clean, comfortable, spacious and within walking distance to all the attractions around The Rocks and Circular Quay. I only gave it a 3-star rating as the lack of noise insulation resulted in a sleepless night because of late night revellers, traffic and noisy drunks on their way home after a late night. If you are a sound sleeper who do not get bothered by outside noise, then you might give this a 4 to 4.5 star rating.

Room Tip: If you don't mind the noise, then you'll love the Terrace rooms. Otherwise ask for a suite a...

We arrived quite early , much earlier then the check in time but there was no issue to park underneath and get direct access to the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by a complimentary upgrade from a Harbour-view Studio to a Harbour-view Studio with a balcony .

The staff was more then happy to store our bags as we wondered off to lunch at Circular Quay. On return we collected our key and found out that they already placed our bag in our room.

We were on the 6th floor room 608 , the top floor , fantastic views over to the harbour , looking directly at the Opera House , then look to the left to see the Harbour bridge.

The room was comfortable , with a queen bed , spacious with a kitchenette , that had a two burner hob , microwave , sink, all the necessary essential kitchen items (which we didn't use) if you wanted to prepare a simple meal.

Location of the hotel was very convenient for this historical part of Sydney , The Rocks , easy walking distance to the Circular Quay train station and ferries.

All In all a pleasant stay , in a clean hotel with very friendly staff and exceptional service .

The room was spacious. With good sized kitchen area that had a fridge, stove and microwave. Perfect for holidaying with young children. We had our 3 year old and 5 year old with us, and there was plenty of room for them to be comfortable and play. I loved having a kitchen area to prepare meals so we didn't have to eat out all the time.
The room we stayed in (1bedroom apartment) had a shower over the bath so that was perfect for the children. We had a balcony and although I was concerned about the children going out on it. I was able to lock it and they were not able to open it without assistance - great safety feature. We had to wait in the foyer for some friends to arrive and the lovely lady on reception could see I was having trouble entertaining the children so she gave them some great colouring packs. We will definitely come back! All staff very eager to please and always cheery.
