This hotel is in an awesome location but it is pretty tired and a bit dirty is some places. It desperately needs upgrades to carpets, furniture and accessories. But, the location so close to everything more than made up for the shortcomings. We would have checked out after the first night if the location wasn’t perfect.

Would definitely stay here again, room was comfortable, view of Sydney Harbour and surrounds great. Loved the proximity of the Hotel to Sydney CBD, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay and The Rocks - all positives in our opinion!.

This is an excellent place to stay if you are travelling out of the Overseas Passenger Terminal on a cruise ship. Walking distance to terminal even with luggage. Many places to eat nearby together with a convenience store to buy those small things you forgot to pack. Rooms are a little dated

I thought the balcony room was excellent. Fantastic views especially when cruise ships are in. The location of the hotel gives easy access to the Rocks and Opera House precincts plus numerous restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars. This makes up for the fact the hotel has no bar or restaurant, but you will never starve or go thirsty in this location..

Stayed here for 4 nights from 1/4-5/4. Allocated room 313 which didn’t have any kind of city view but we didn’t miss that as we explored the city utilising the various transport options available.

Check in was swift, staff very obliging & helpful, thanks to Makena, Natalie, & Shakaib when we had questions or a problem with a tour, Ethan in particular was so accommodating.

The rooms are a little tired & could do with a spruce up in areas but they are really clean, with a great self contained kitchen area that provides for all your needs & the most comfortable of beds. My only observation here is there is no need to change the towels daily, please think of the environment, also consider a separate bin for recycled products, we left these on the counter top in the hope they’d be recycled.

The hotel does have a small pool & spa on site but doesn’t offer breakfast this is in another building with a separate charge, this didn’t bother us, as it allowed us the opportunity to sample food from different places. The hotel provides a Nespresso coffee machine in the foyer for customers to use & there is a nice seating area too, they also stored our luggage all day until the airport transfer arrived.

In terms of location, it’s right on the Rocks & if you walk down the flight of stairs directly opposite turn right & walk about 100 metres, the ferry terminal is to your left, providing easy access to the Opera House, Botanical Gardens or trains for exploring, if you do intend to explore, get an Opal Card, it’s excellent value for money. Following the same directions you could call into Sydney’s oldest pub Fortune of War, great vibe, music & service!

Only other thing to mention is there are 2 hotels of the same name, the other Rendezvous being in Central, this caused us a major headache when taking a tour as the tour company messed up big style, pick up was supposed to be at our hotel but was changed to the Mercury which is next to the one in Central so we missed it, please ensure you don’t fall foul of this & confirm any pick ups accordingly & don’t be afraid to challenge. It’s 2 stops away or a good 45 minute walk to get to the other one.

We are planning a return visit & we will definitely be coming back to this hotel , thank you to everyone for being so friendly .
