Tried to overcharge

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Oct 2012
They tried to overcharge by applying the service charge and sales tax twice. And when I pointed out their mistake, they at first insisted they were correct (before later apologizing and fixing the bill). It's hard to believe this was an accident - charging for rooms is what they do for a living, after all.

The rooms are OK and the location is good (5 minute walk to an MRT interchange), but by the time you add on $27 per day for Internet access and another possible $40 of overcharges if you're not all the ball, you could stay in a far nicer and newer hotel such as Fort Canning just a block away.

Another point is that many of their rooms are noisy right now due to the construction of the Downtown MRT line adjacent to the hotel which goes on for most of 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is not their fault, but it's something you should be aware of. They have a limited number of quieter rooms on the opposite side, so if noise bothers you, ask for one of these should you book.

Also, their mattresses are hard - harder than anything I've seen in a shop. This didn't bother me personally, but it's worth bearing in mind if you're used to something soft.
Date of stay: September 2012
Room Tip: While the new MRT line is under construction, ask for a quiet room if daytime noise bothers you.

Hotel room was very good,bed was quite comfortable after a lot of pretty hard beds throughout France,Polandand Rome.The hotel restaurant has a great spread for breakfast but is quite expensive for meals.They have a special for a bottle of wine.Buy one get one free but the bottle costs about three times the cost of a comparable bottle at home.

Central placed. Friendly and helpful staff. Good gym.
Got a free upgrade to a club room (without even asking for it).
Very Close to the Bras Barah metro station.
Very Close to Coffee Bean and the tea leaf - I had breakfast there every day, even ordered take away from them.

Room tip: The club rooms are rather high up in the building (10th & 11th floor).

Really good location, you can walk to the main places. 20 mins to CQ, 25 to Chinatown, even to marina bay you can walk. 7 eleven opposite the hotel, nice restaurants around.

Room quiet small but comfy. Mattress slightly to hard... Challenge with the water temperature in the shower, but manageable :)

Front office staff helpful and polite but not outstanding. Request a room facing the pool area they are more quiet, as a major construction work is going on next to the hotel (MRT).

Haven't tried the food and beverage outlets, but honestly, why should I eat in the hotel when I'm surrounded by so many very good local restaurants ??

Would highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed at the Rendezvous Grand for 5 nights during my stay in Singapore. The hotel was excellent, in particular its location - I was within easy walking distance of the Marina Bay Sands (and surrounding shops/malls), Orchard St., Little India, Chinatown, Bugis Junction, and Sim Lim Square - among others. There was a very convenient shuttle service to Jurong Bird Park and the Zoo as well, which stopped just across the street from the hotel's front door.

The facilities were clean and very well maintained, and my room was a welcome comfort after long days of walking and shopping. The staff were always friendly, and quite helpful during the duration of the stay - they always aided in helping find a cab, providing advice for destinations, andhelping with other hotel services.

The hotel (and its amenities) was more expensive than some of the nearby hotels but in my opinion, well worth the price. I'd highly recommend the Rendezvous Grand to anyone traveling to Singapore to visit.

We stay at this hotel for 9 nights during my business trip.
The location is nice - next to museums and restaurants - also close to Orchard.
The staff wasn't so friendly, wifi is not including in the room price!!!
The breakfast was nice, the pool very small, the rooms also small.
It is find and nice value - not more than that.
