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

Our four night stay in the Charsfield surpassed all my expectations. Our first visit to Melbourne, and after a day of heavy shopping and sight seeing returning to our spacious, elegant (and clean, clean clean) room was a treat in itself. The bed was super comfortable, the room was light, airy and attractive. This was Room 101, a premium spa... More

Stayed here during 2014 Forumula 1 race. The physical hotel is old but very well kept and really a nice place. The room was small with a separate sitting area. Had FREE internet and refrigerator. The staff is very responsive and very helpful. I left my cell phone in a cab on my way to Auckland. The cabbie was nice... More

We turned up to Hotel Charsfield expecting to have a relaxed intoduction to our room prior to dinner and the Ballet. Instead we were moved to another sub-standard motel (Single beds only, torn shabby furniture and further out of town) at late notice. Charsfield offered little explanation for the move. Did not help or offer to relocate us to the... More

Dear Craig B We are very disappointed to read your recent review and feedback regarding your booking, which unfortunately needed to be relocated to a nearby 4 star property on St Kilda Road due to an unforseeable maintenance issue within the Hotel, which occured on the day of your arrival. As advised upon arrival for check in, the Hotel tried... More
