This hotel is nicely finished and the rooms are great. There are two downsides...if you need more than 1 hour wifi, you are hit with a $25 fee for 24 hrs...and if you need parking it's another $25. A bit rich.

I really enjoyed my five night stay at the Royce. The hotel has a lovely romantic boutique feel to it, although it is a heritage listed building the hotel felt extremely new and the rooms were comfy, spacious and very clean. The location is convenient if you want to be slightly away from the hustle of the city - 5... More

My wife booked this hotel for us to stay in the city for my birthday. My first impression was a nice establishment,however when we checked in we found that the valet parking was extra $25,it was fairly removed from the CBD (just past the Shrine)so accessing the attractions had to be via taxi or tram. We went to the tram... More

We spent just the one night here but it was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The rooms were spacious and we had a lovely view overlooking the old buildings of Melbourne Grammar and the shrine in the distance. We were on the 6th floor which gave us a better view. Just a short ride down St Kilda Rd and we... More

We loved our stay, great price, awesome room, best breakfast I've had I ages. If I had to be picky id say the lighting in the room, particularly the bathrooms were too dark for my wife to put her make up on. We will most certainly return for another stay.

Well just had 2 nights at the Royce. The rooms were great expect there was no instruction booklet for any on the room features. The light switches were confusing to use and in some cases did not work. The Spa would not work and it took a member of the staff 20 minutes to get it to operate. We went... More

Well positioned between CBD and St Kilda on the tram lines between posh school and cafe vue. Good choice if don't wish to be right in town but also not too far out. Rather dowdy exterior, soul-less lobby and staff. Brekky average. Room decent but this is not a hotel for views. Short stroll to the memorial however. Good walk... More

We have never stayed here before because we usually stay in the CBD. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a beautiful place to stay, very stylish. Staff were very friendly. Will definitely stay again, was value for money with breakfast included. We stayed on a weekend and just parked on the street nearby which was still ok and didn't cost... More

I had wanted to stay here for a while, having read reviews and seen nice photos etc. I think my expectations were a bit high. I'm sure its a great hotel, but a couple of things ruined this for me. I was disappointed to get a room on the ground floor ( I wanted to go up the grand staircase-haha,... More

A nice business hotel in a convenient location, the rooms are modern and stylish. Make sure you avoid the ground floor and get a room on the opposite of St. Kilda Road. The room rate is good value and breakfast is good. One watch out - the hotel website says it is equipped with a gym, but it's a tiny... More
