It is a good value for money hotel. Internet is free for the first hour on a daily basis, after which there is a charge. The roof top swimming pool is a must visit if time permits, it offers a good view and is heated. Have not had a chance to sample the restaurant but it seemed nice.

Have stayed here twice now and both times was left wondering if this really is a 4.5 star hotel. The rooms are tight a bit run down and tight. Not much space once you open your suitcase. The sink in the bathroom had a massive crack in it. Breakfast in the morning was really good but get there early as... More

Close to QV centre, Parliament Station, Exhibition Buildings, Collins Street shopping precinct, as well as the Princess Theatre & Her Majesty's Theatre. Easy walking distance to Bourke street Mall, Myer window, City Circle Tram, Federation Square and the MCG. Town Hall Christmas lighting... More

I've stayed in accommodation all over Australia and with prices ranging from $100-1000. I concede that the location and availability are contributory to the price but when I'm paying $400+ for an "executive room" for a single night I would at least expect 2 people to be able to fit in the shower at the one time (what hotel above...

I love the roof top pool and convenient location. However this is where the positives end. The room we stayed in on level 3 was average for the price paid. Street noise is an issue in most CBD hotels and the Grand Chancellor is no exception to this... However the real problem was with the noisy pipes that vibrated our... More

Not over the top flashy but it is very neat, clean and the rooms very comfortable. I have always found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Footlights restaurant if very good and they do a great buffet breakfast. The location is outstanding !! Chinatown is in the next street and you can access it from the basement carpark.... More

Very disappointed with this hotel. Room was very poor quality and quite noisy. The staff service was appalling and at times rude. The lifts were not working, and the list of complaints just goes on. I would never stay here again.
