We stumbled upon Rendezvous as refugees seeking alternative accommodation after a bad night at a nearby guesthouse. The lady manager let us view the room prior to reserving it, and for 550 baht we soon found ourselves installed in a spacious, cool and reasonably quiet room later that morning.
This review would be complete if we had had a later flight the next morning and been able to try the complimentary breakfast. We also had no opportunity to test the ambience of the cafe downstairs, but it looked both busy and relaxed when we checked in around 10AM.
The room was pleasantly cool despite not being air-conditioned, and the TV provided us with a bit of white noise and entertainment as we packed. Shower was good in terms of temperature (well-heated) and water pressure (excellent).
Location's great, with a pharmacy, money changers and lots of eating spots nearby. The Sunday night market is a mere 3-minute stroll away, and many other central attractions within reasonable walking distance.
There's a deposit for the room amenities (around 400 baht, I think) but we got it back with no problems even with our early morning checkout.
Also, the Peppermint Cafe next door is lovely, a great place to meet fellow travellers and to watch a bit of the world go by.
