Arrived 12:00pm and told room is not ready, fair enough. Come back from lunch at 1:40pm and told check-in is 2:00pm. OK, we waited at the lounge and went to reception at 1:57pm, and been told check-in time is 2:00pm, so not yet.... They have done nothing wrong of course, just make me very uncomfortable after a 15 hrs flight.

Stayed here twice recently. Both times service and rooms were excellent Only small issue was that the bar closed reasonably early But we do love the restaurant and the overall feeling you're in a top class hotel

The rooms are spacious and modern, the staff are helpful, the house keeping is making a good job.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
