The Charsfield is a lovely heritage style hotel. It is well appointed between Melbourne CBD and St Kilda and on a tram line. The hotel is beautifully restored with modern comforts while retaining its old world charm. Our room was at the rear so we weren't affected by any traffic noise. The bed was comfortable and room was very clean... More

This was a great old hotel close to Melbourne CBD on St Kilda road, it has been restored beautifully, our room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful with trams, and direction. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the charsfield, the staff are very nice and helpful and actually seem like they like working there. We loved the character of the building and it's much more personal than some of the big hotels in melbourne. It was so quiet at night and we slept as if we were not in a major... More

Wished we could have stayed there longer and will definitely book in again at the Charsfield when next in Melbourne. Full of character and old world elegance. Convenience of trams on one's doorstep. Situated near the art precinct and beautiful gardens. Convenient to the city and surrounds of Melbourne.

Gorgeous boutique hotel, a step back in time with lots of heritage charm and grace in this old building especially in the foyer, halls and common areas. The dining room had an especially lovely feel and the buffet spread for breakfast while not silver service had a rich, abundant feel. Apparently built by the same people who built the Windsor...

Spent a few nights in this very delightful hotel. Very quiet, well presented and loads of character. It was a memorable experience and we will definitely stay there on our return to Melbourne. It was very close to the city and only a few minutes walk to tram and bus stops.

Just had a few days here and it was lovely, beautiful old building, clean rooms and staff were very friendly. We had a wedding nearby so was very handy and was very easy to catch the tram into the city, would defiantly stay here again and highly recommend it.

Loved the old world charm of the Hotel,. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful also. Location was perfect for our needs as had a function next door. It is also easy to get to. Can see it could be a bit out of the way if you need to be right in the CBD though. Had trouble regulating the shower,... More
