Great location within short walking distance to Chapel Street and there's also tram stop on your door stop that'll take you into the city. The rooms were beautifully decorated and make for a really fun stay. The hotel is on a busy road but it's quiet in the evening, including on Fri and Sat nights. Sure, you can find cheaper... More

Really loved the rooms in this hotel, mirrors and really comfortable bed. Agree it can be a little noisy if you leave a balcony door open but it's in a really nice location with lots of places to eat and shop nearby. The service upon checkin was superb, really friendly staff and very helpful. Service upon checking out was not... More

We have stayed previuosly at the other two Arts Series hotels in this area and liked them. We know the area very well from some years ago. And we knew the hotel group offers residencies at reduced cost and we needed a place this time for nearly a month. The price was very good. And even with some days away... More

Location was perfect. I found the staff friendly and approachable. We had a deluxe room and it was nicely appointed with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was the smallest I have ever had given the price of the room. There was no turn down service and even the water was at an extra cost. I found it considerably overpriced.

Stayed here with 2 friends over a w/e, got a suite with 2 beds. Great room, felt like someone's apartment, with full kitchen & great art on walls. Room had a balcony with great view of downtown Melbourne. Hotel has a "W" feel to it, free wifi & cool restaurant on ground floor makes amazing breakfasts.

The bed was beautifully comfortable. Rooms very smart looking. Art work looks great. Only one thing, the frosted glass wall and door into the bathroom/toilet. You can see everything, there are some things better left unseen. We made a pact to look in another direction when one of us needed to use the bathroom.
