4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent 2 bed apartment set in a great period building. Modern fittings and very spacious rooms each with their own clean and modern bathroom. Lounge and kitchen areas were also very nice. Tram stop was very close with lots of teams coming through - recommend asking how staff how the payment system works!

A lovely historic building adds charm to the stay. The suite is spacious although the bathroom is a bit unusual in shape...long & narrow. The hotel is well maintained and immaculate. The staff were very helpful. Internet is readily available and free. There are laundry facilities on the premises and a daily paper is left at your door. Breakfast and... More

The lobby and common areas are part of a beautifully maintained heritage building but the guest rooms are basic. We are in a junior suite which is at the back of the hotel. The furniture is awkwardly squeezed in to the room and we haven't sat in the sofa as it isn't a usable area. The bathroom has no shelf... More

Stayed here for a few nights in March. Hotel is located equidistant between Melbourne city centre and St Kilda, on the busy St Kilda road. You can walk to either about 25 minutes and on the way into town you can do it via the botanical gardens, which are great. Alternatively there are trams all the time or cabs, which... More

And yet again I wasn't disappointed. The front desk staff, especially Louise and Meredith, were very friendly, efficient and helpful. The standard in all respects is very high and it's a real treat to stay in such an old world (with discreet mod cons such as Wifi) as the Hotel Charsfield. It's in a great location, handy to St Kilda,... More

Spent 3 nights exploring Melbourne. Great access to tram. Excellent coffee and breakfast options near hotel. And at half the price. Try cafe safi. Old hotel with character. Service was good including wifi and morning paper. We would stay here again on our next visit to Melbourne.

Spent the last two nights at this charming hotel and overall it was a delightful experience. Very efficient reception staff, most helpful and knowledgeable. A great location close to the city with excellent transport at the front door. Spotlessly clean and the room I had was quite spacious. Mattress on the bed getting a little worn though. Only downside was... More

I stayed recently 2 nights at the Charsfield. It's a hertiage-listed building, old, with great character. The staff were wonderful. They treated the guests with respect and politeness from a century ago. Free newspapers at your door in the morning. Billiards room and common room with Chesterfield sofas.Absolute class. My new home away from home in Melbourne.

Lovely charming hotel in a great location. Just a short 10 minute tram ride into the city is right outside your front door. We had a lovely relaxing time in the spa suite. I would recommend the spa suiteif you would like a more spacious room. Lots of windows and great light. Even though our room was at the front... More

We enjoyed the Charsfield. It was a walk in the past as it is situated in a young vibrant city and yet the Hotel is old and charming and well kept. The rooms were good sized and comfortable. It was a little of the beaten path but a wonderful walk into the heart of Melbourne. It was a stately cross... More
