Review of Hotel Ravesis
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Feb 2021via mobile
Lovely place with cool features and nice mini bar but super noisy - our room had a great view but felt lit we were in a hen party in our room - room had had pretty poor insulation so super noisy to bar down stairs

Thank you for taking the time to review us!

We definately understand your issue, While we are lucky to have a beautiful heritage building, this does come with its limitations- in that the soundproofing (such as double glazing windows) we are able to do is limited.

We are however endeavouring to completely overhaul the noise levels in rooms at the moment, so in the coming months noise in our entry level rooms should no longer be a problem.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us valuable feedback!

Walking into the lobby (what lobby?) I thought here we go. The lift was blue nice and Mediterranean blue then the hallway smelt old and mouldy I was about to cry. Then room 6 yep room 6 OMG what a view!! To die for .. 4 balconies and 4 views of the beach and hub. Right on the corner of the centre of Bondi . Couldn’t have asked for a better getaway. The room was CLEAN . The toiletries were amazing the bed was comfortable . One word AMAZING. Price well it was little steep but worth it for the view... loved it loved it nothing else to say ...

During these crazy fines, the ease at which we were able to book a table and not have a time restriction on the night was wonderful.

Check in was easy and the staff were friendly and very helpful.

The food was great and every dish we ordered was delivered to the table with a smile and delicious.

We booked the hotel on same day as arrival! On arrival it was about 7pm and dark, we met a male receptionist he was really lovely and helpful! He gave us our key to room 9 and was telling us it’s so quite in regards to what’s going on! Only 2 rooms were being used on the night! On the website the hotel looked beautiful being right across from bondi beach! 3.5 stars we decided to book it! $128 room only rate! The lift and corridors had a weird smell but the decoration was lovely! We got into the room and it looked fab! Exactly what we wanted! After being there for about an hour I noticed couple of really small flys just flying around! It didn’t bother me too much as we did open the door to look at the view for a couple of minutes and I presumed they had come In! Like I said it was late and dark when we arrived and when we woke the next morning we realized there was actually ants all over the table, in the bathroom on the floor and also those small flys again on the curtains! We packed up our stuff and left! We the told the female receptionist as we were leaving her response “thanks for telling me” even though this hotel is in a perfect location and decoration was nice, there’s clearly a problem with insects! Very disappointed as we are driving from Melbourne to Brisbane and had been staying in motels etc for roughly $55 per night and decided to treat ourselves to a night hotel for the night! Not a mistake we will make again!

Hi there,

We are so sorry to hear that there were bugs in your room and that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Being the change in season in Bondi we do sometimes get bugs flying in off the beach. As for the ants, I can assure you that we treated the room upon checkout and managed to extinguish this issue. Again, we sincerely apologise that your stay was affected by this. We wish you all the best during these tough times. Warmest regards, Bella

For all it’s charm this hotel is where you want to stay if you like listening to loud bass music and feel your bed shake all night. Located directly above their restaurant which bumps musics into the night this is no place to catch any zzzs. I would never recommend someone stay here and shame on their false advertising of a boutique experience with great food in the heart of Bondi. I checked in then check right out as I couldn’t even hear my husband talk from the bathroom as we got ready for dinner. When checking out no apologies simply we will address your feedback and defended themselves that they advertise as a live music venue.

In addition to my disappointment they also use influencers to promote their hotel and I can confidently say not one has spent a night in their hotel after my few hours there. The lack of transparency is unacceptable.

Hi Anne, we are saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately as we are a lively boutique hotel in the heart of Bondi some of our rooms can attract noise from level 1. We do advertise this on our website and through our confirmation email and pre-arrival letter. We recommend contacting us direct if you are concerned about noise so that we can recommend a room that would better suit you. Your insinuation regarding the influencers who stay here is incorrect. We apologise that your stay was not what you hoped it would be and wish you all the best. Warm regards, Bella

What a cool location, and what a great hotel! Really happy with this choice, staying over the weekend for meetings the next day! This hotel was a great choice - funky cool rooms, great decor, stylish, cool staff who were friendly a great rooftop bar, DJ's playing cool tunes on the rooftop which wasn't that loud when we were in our rooms later on, a bar downstairs which was fun if you want a drink and stay in the vibe, and overall a fabulous location RIGHT on Bondi's main waterfront Campbell Pde... it was in super easy walking distance to the beach, the bars, all restaurants and up the side street to more off the beaten track local places to dine! We loved the room, great amenities, it was comfortable, stylish and we had a great sleep! Free Wifi, great balcony with views over Bondi and people-watching, and a really good vibe. Nicely renovated!!! Definitely recommend! A+

Room tip: Be warned if there's a rooftop party, you may hear it from your room, but they silence it around 11pm.
