Rendezvous Grand Hotel Singapore
Travel Blogs from Singapore
Packing, checking out, quick coffee with Joyce at KaDeWe, then we said farewell to Michael's folks and went by taxi to Tegel Airpot. Mercedes taxi, of course. Our Finnair flights were from Berlin to Helsinki (1 hour 30 mins), then Helsinki to Singapore (11 hours 30 mins). Fortunately the second flight wasn't full so we scored a couple of seats each …
Well how disappointing, we woke up this morning to huge storms and pouring rain. That ruined our plans for the day. We were heading back to the zoo to do the River Safari were you see the Pandas. We had already bought the tickets so we gave them to the concierge at our hotel. So off shopping we went, down the local markets. Not too …
Slow start today as we had no time commitments. Breakfast special at near by Wendy's then off to Changi Chapel. Decided to use the train to get there so negotiated SMRT metro system.. Managed with a little help from some kind hearted locals. Interesting to be the only non Asians on the train. Arrived at Changi Airport only to be told it would have …
Hot and humid (31/24 °) ... think I actually got a little sun burnt yesterday!
Alarm at 6.30am as we have 1/2 day tour this morning. Found a cheap breakfast next street ($2 French toast + $2.50 eggs, ham and toast with teh (black tea with carnation milk - wondered what kopee was = coffee). Hotel pick up in mini bus and on to Transit Centre …
Today was a weird one, only the night before i was saying to Lara, how i was starting to feel emotional, however it is only a holiday and we are coming back, but i guess it is a big thing, i am not going to see my friends and family for a long time, and we are embarking on an experience some people only dream of. The lovely Jackie (my house mate) …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Good location and good service. We were able to walk to many locations, however there was a train station just outside.

Excellent Location and Very Good Value
I managed to get an excllent rate by booking through the hotel's Web site. Unfortunately, they didn't have a record of my booking when I checked in but that was straightened out the next morning.
Excellent location at the end of Orchard Road and a five minute walk to the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station.
Nice, comfortable rooms of average size by North American standards for this class of hotel.
I did not have a chance to check out the hotel's pool or restaurants.
This hotel is beautiful with nicely decorated rooms. The room is not huge but of reasonable size. The room with pool view is relaxing and quieter than those facing the streets. The best thing about the hotel is its location, near the Orchard Road to the west, close to Little India (15 minutes walk to the north) and the Singapore River (15-20 minutes walk to the south). It is opposite to SMU and 1 minute walk to a large food court and a big convenient store to the east. It is also very near the Cathay Cineplex so that going for a movie is always possible all day and late at night. The buffet breakfast at the Cafe is also very good in variety and quality.
The Rendezvous Hotel is well located in Singapore between the Raffles area and Orchard Rd close to the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. The hotel lobby is impressive. The room and bathroom were clean and light. (I stayed in a standard room on the 6th floor with a king (two twins together) bed). The pool did not receive much sunlight, so this would not be a good place for a suntan. For $100USD/night, I thought the hotel was a good value though definitely not a luxury hotel. If you're looking for comfortable, clean, upscale accomodation, the Rendezvous works.
Having read all reviews posted in Tripadvisor, my boyfriend and I decided to stay in the Hotel Rendezvous in our first Singapore vacation. The location of Rendezous is good, it is located in the middle of the city, so it takes around 5 mins in average to go any where, Orchard road, Clarke Quay, Esplande; to the nearst MRT station i think is about 10mins walk, but i never tried because the cab in Singapore is cheap!
A lovely comfortable, clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. with no pressure of any kind I've never felt so relaxed, comfortable and at home in any hotel before, but not only had I arrived jet lagged, but this was the very first time I'd travelled abroad alone, which makes it doubly OK.
I recently enjoyed a 5 night stay at the Rendevous. I found the front desk staff helpful, room service was good and arrived on time. My room was nice and clean, I especially liked the bathroom. The lighting was good and I has enough room to put my makeup on in the morning.
As a woman traveling on my own. I was happy to see the lift/elevator required a key card to access rooms.
Location wise you are in walking distance of the metro and Orchard Road. There is a shopping mall not far from the hotel called Plaza Singapura. Where they have a Carrefour supermarket, stocked with European and American products. Great if you want some snacks or drinks to keep in your room.
I plan to stay at the Rendezvous next time I am in Singapore. I think that says it all.
We stayed at the Rendezvous in November 05, for a 2 night stop over with 2 kids aged 3 & 4. All the hotels we had booked were 5 star but this one was rated 3/4 so i was dubious about what it would be like but not knowing Singapore we just took our chances.
We were really pleased when we arrived, it was very smart, clean and spacious. The beds were very comfy and the rooms had brilliant air con and it was in a fab location. We were a short walk from Dauby Ghaunt CBT (underground). Sentosa Island was one way and Orchard road was the other.
It was definatly as good as the 5 star hotels in Oz and Cape Town.
I had 2 nights at the Rendezvous in Singapore while I was there on business. The overall impression of the hotel was very good. The staff were helpful as you'd expect, and room service was quick and courteous. the rooms were nicely done without being too remarkable. The main thing for me was that this hotel seemed to do everything very well and at an extremely keen price - I thought it was really remarkable value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel. Their only omission was staffing at the concierge, they didn't seem to have any...
We stayed here for 2 nights in March 2005. The room we had was on the top floor, it was very clean and comfortable overlooking the swimming pool and jacuzzi. The staff here were very pleasant and helpful and the hotel itself is stunning from inside and out. It is very near to the MRT which made it ideal for exploring, it is also within walking distance to Suntec City and Raffles.
This hotel was recommended by my travel agent. In the past I had only stayed in major chain hotels such as Sheraton and Hyatt so I was a little apprehensive of staying at an unknown brand. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful (what else would you expect in Singapore!), the hotel was very clean, rooms modern and well serviced.
The location was very convenient being only 5 mins walk to the nearest MRT station.
All in all I enjoyed 4 very comfortable nights. I would not hesitate to stay there again in the future.
