Easy to get a taxi and trams right out front. Really lovely old world class hotel. Must have the hot breakfast, it was delicious, made just the way... More

Stayed here because a friend was stationed here back in the days when it was a WRACC barracks; she was on a nostalgia trip. Now it's a hotel, it's lovely! The characterful architecture makes you feel as though you are a guest at someone's grand home. The front desk staff were helpful and knowledgeable, and provided extra towels and a... More

The Hotel Charsfield is a lovely charming hotel on St Kilda Road, all of our amenities were great - the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was brand new. When our hot water wouldn't work we were moved straight away into a similar room. Location is great with trams right outside the front door, really convenient. We would come... More

Centrally located close to city. Extremely professional,clean and ideal for informal coffee meeting or simply grab a drink and enjoy the newspaper in the character filled reading room. after a busy day. Old world charms and high level of attention to deal. Will be my preferred stay when in Melbourne

Sadly this historic hotel is to be redeveloped early next year so it was a first and final visit for us. Lovely room at the front of the hotel, fantastic shower - one of those rainfall jobs that's like standing in a Mossman Gorge waterfall. Comfortable beds and nice buffet or cooked breakfast available each day. The restaurant closed some... More
