I chose this hotel because of its location and was not disappointed. My God Daughter, Naomi, and I stayed for two nights while attending shows. The location was perfect. After a morning at the Museum I was a tad tired so retired to the room whilst Naomi was able to visit Bourke Street Mall. Everything we needed was in walking... More

Have stayed here many times, the location is amazing, right in the CBD and is close to public transport and amenities. Rooms are a decent size with small balcony with a nice bathroom, free toiletries! Although once I had a room and the bath wouldn't stay full! The beds are very, very comfortable. Room service is offered with fairly decent... More

The location to the Theatre was excellent and I suppose value for $'s was good. But I must say given the name of the hotel, our room on level 6 was ordinary. The bed faced the door without any privacy and there was no security chain on the door, so I felt vulnerable when going to bed. Being next to... More

This hotel is in the process of being upgraded. We had a great room with all new fittings, a lovely bathroom and nice furnishings. Very spacious and nice outlook across to the Wesley church. I recommend paying the extra to upgrade to the superior room to experience the best outlook and most recently upgraded room. The hotel is situated very... More

My First time staying at Grand Chancellor, I never expected such value for money. Front of house staff had excellent service. The Room was exceptional and the cleanliness is outstanding. The hotel is central to everything. If you are arriving from Southern Cross Station, you are looking at a 15-20 minute walk. There are plenty of cabs outside Southern Cross... More

Upon arrival we were informed there was no parking for guests and the car park they use was full. The bed was very small and the shower had no pressure. Air con was noisy. Breakfast was good. Really would not recommend this to anyone.

Stayed 2 nights on 13th floor. Very clean and quiet. Staff very nice and accommodating. Only very small gripe. TV in gym needs to be moved so it can be seen by those exercising. Spent an hour a night on treadmills looking at a blank wall. Small whinge I know. Cant fault thus place otherwise.

I had no issues with the hotel itself, it was in a fairly good location, the rooms were huge and all very clean however the service really let the hotel down. We arrived at the hotel a few hours early, expecting not to be able to check in I requested we leave our bags. We were told that they would... More
