Loved this hotel. Lovely old refurbished building and the staff were excellent. Also very easy to get to places from here without having the hustle and bustle of being in the middle of the city. The reception staff at check in could almost read our minds and had travel information available for us along with the option to add the... More

Rooms are quite small but immaculate and staff extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Especially Kenny who was so helpful and also the girl who was on afternoon/evening who brought us extra cups and booked our breakfast for us late. The only downside was the breakfast which was very average, I had eggs Benedict and the eggs... More

Arriving late in the city and arriving at this establishment was quite impressive. The foyer and entry into the hotel were old world charm , as was the sitting room to the side of the check in area. Our room was quite small, however it was comfortable for an overnight stay. A continental breakfast at the hotel was nice. Only... More

Great location if you don't want to be in the center. Tram outside front door, easy system. Helpful friendly staff. Breakfast ok but a great cafe next door and a superb Sri Lankan restaurant the other side. Room on small side but clean modern bathroom and the best shower ever!

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.
