This hotel is in the heart of Melbourne with a free tram within a 2 minute walk. The tram circles the CBD and you can get on an off as you please. The hotel was very central and allowed us to visit Melbourne without over the top prices in getting to our chosen destinations. The rooms were well set out... More

The property's website says it's an "all suite upscale boutique hotel", but the pokey cheapo room (just large enough for the bed) you'll get if you book via Wotif certainly fails my test of a "suite". The noise coming from the adjoining room via the interconnecting door at the foot of the bed was enough to have me call and... More

The apartments are excellent. Spacious and clean. Very quiet and relaxing. Sensational Chinese across the street. Laundry facilities were useful. Great kitchen. Coles around the corner. Cleaning staff very efficient and friendly. Highly recommended.

The Sebel at Flinders is simply amazing. The suite had everything we needed, fully equipped kitchenette, super comfy beds, etc. Guest laundry on the 7th floor, and a lounge with free espressos while reading the morning papers, completed the stay. The location is superb, trams, trains, cafes, all within a short walk.

Flinders lane is very centrally located and we could walk to many of the attractions of Melbourne. Bourke Street shopping area, south bank of the Yarra river with many restaurants, museums, opera/theater and the Botanical gardens are all nearby. But the street is very narrow and one cannot see any sunlight. The only view is into other office buildings. It... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane was completely refurbished in September 2011, when it celebrated its 90th anniversary. The refurbishment design philosophy drew inspiration from the early "fashion house" days with a view of creating an expression of sophisticated elegance, through an individual design concept that would remain unique to The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane. The result has turned this "all suite" apartment building into a market leading boutique hotel. Presented is a contemporary range of sophisticated one bedroom suites that infuse modern design philosophies with the architectural and historical heritage of the building. Archival Melbourne scenes are displayed in the black and white artwork that adorn the corridors, evolving into a celebration of Melbourne’s modern icons throughout the suites. With the retention of the original detailed cornice and architraves, blended with contemporary designer furniture and fittings and modern state of the art appliances, the change is exceptional. The sophisticated colour palette is the key design element, from charcoal European bathroom tiles, contrasted by the white, chrome and glass designer fixtures to the use of dark veneers, stainless steel, leather and stone throughout the design.New Guest Features include Lounge 321 located on the ground floor of the hotel, which provides guests with complimentary internet access, newspapers, magazines, games, business and entertainment TV channels. The Courtyard is a European inspired inner city escape that provides guests with an intimate courtyard garden to share a drink with friends or to simply relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. While the days of fashion are well in the past at 321 Flinders Lane, those looking for a fashion experience will not be disappointed with The Sebel Melbourne’s Flinders Lane location. Ideally located between Elizabeth and Queen Street, it is in close proximity to Melbourne’s shopping, and entertainment district with the added benefit of having Melbourne’s famous cafe culture and the iconic Flinders Street Station right around the corner. ... more   less
