Reviewed 5 June 2014

Great hotel that has maintained much of it's historic architecture and fittings. Small glitch on check-in but was resolved quickly. Room was a bit on the small side and the bed was only queen size but the room was well appointed, modern and clean. Had drinks in the bar downstairs - very friendly staff and great atmosphere. Unfortunately we could only stay one night - next time we will stay longer. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Perfectly placed in the heart of Melbourne and reasonably priced. The room was small and a little tired looking but very clean. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet. Overall it was very good value for a short stay. Would stay again for an overnight trip but would seek something larger for an extended stay.

From the time of booking and subsequent emails from Reservation manager Nikita to the follow up emails from Andrew the customer relations manager this is one of the best hotels I have stayed.
The hotel itself is immaculate with beautiful old world finishes. The rooms are clean and have all amenities you could ever want.
Close to all shopping and restaurants and of course Crown Casino all walking distance.
I would like to congratulate the staff mentioned above for their exemplary service and the hotel for a wonderful weekend.

Room Tip: A view looking over Southbank is the way to go

We were motivated to select this hotel after a great stay at the Rendezvous in Auckland.

Our 2-night break for our Anniversary in Melbourne was made all the better with the fantastic service from Andrew from Guest Services. Andrew not only took the time to build up rapport with us, the clients, during the booking stage but was extremely friendly and helpful when we happened to meet him at work during our stay at the hotel. It's such people who truly make your experience memorable.

The hotel was well managed and conveniently located. When booking our stay I was concerned that the rooms may have been old and dated as the building is over 100 years old and some of the photos on the internet did not make the rooms look appealing however the room we were allocated was impeccable and so was the bathroom. We were in a delux room which was quite small, with an even smaller bathroom however this is expected for the location and the price we paid. We were up on the 8th floor and set back from the street so there was no noise whatsoever aside from the creakly timber floors in the corridor and in the room itself.

There was no view at all and the plate glass windows were grimy on the outside and looked onto the office block across a narrow alley however we were not there for the view so it did not bother us. For a small fee you can upgrade to a room with a view.

The breakfast buffet at $27.50 per person offered a hot and cold section, a pancake making machine and a selection of freshly ground coffees.

The bed sagged a little in the middle making a good night's sleep a little difficult for one who is used to a firmer bed. It's something the hotel could look into.

Overall, if you are looking for a clean and well maintained hotel, good value and a central location you can't go wrong with the Rendezvous Grand, Melbourne. We are well-travelled and have decades of experience in the hotel industry and we are very careful when posting a review.

Great location close to attractions. friendly concierge that is very welcoming and provides customer service how it should be. love the fresh vanilla smell in entrance and the ambience of the building. Appreciate the fact that we could check in early so we could get to the MCG all refreshed after flight. Room was slightly noisy being on 9th floor we could hear air cond through the night. Overall good stay 8/10

i booked this hotel due to its location, it is directly opposite Flinders Street Station with easy access to everything. The hotel room overlooked the Yarra and looked onto Southbank. The rooms were generous sizing and had everything you would need. We My husband and i have stayed in alot of hotels and this was up there. Nice clean rooms and amenities definitely stay here again
