But Charsfield is by far the most impressive one to stay - friendly staff, comfortable bed, good location etc.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Charsfield for about a week early last April. This was my husband's first visit to Australia, and my first since my parents emigrated years ago. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay: great staff, great location on several tram lines, and quiet, well-appointed rooms in a gorgeous old building. The... More

Beautiful hotel, located on the outskirts of CBD. Short walk away from Albert park and the Royal botanic gardens. Tram stops right outside the hotel. Excellent service, nearby parking available. They have a laundry room on the property, which was really handy. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment, which was huge! It was really lovely and clean but none... More

Very quaint old hotel. Exterior is charming. Hotel staff is extremely friendly. Beds and bedding are modern and comfortable. Coffee/tea service in each room. The rooms, though old, have been redecorated and are comfortable. Would stay again. Negative- bathrooms could use some bleach in the corners.

My travel agent found this hotel for me based on my preference for boutique style establishments and I really loved it. A five minute walk from the tram stop made it so easy to come and go into town. I found the room to be extremely quiet and I am the sort who would value this quality above almost everything... More
