Sure, there are plenty of fancy hotels not too far away, but the location of Palihotel was great. It had easy access to the wonderful Melrose shops and restaurants. It was definitely kind of dark and had funky decor, but it was clean and comfortable. The underground parking was also very convenient. Our room was on the ground floor facing... More

Simple, understated eye-candy and amusement, thanks to a creative use of flea market finds. Cozy rooms maintain the same flavour. Comfy beds. Friendly staff. Great in-house restaurant as well as popular eateries nearby. Good location. Reasonably priced. Definitely recommended.

This hotel was close to everything. Plus the staff was friendly and accommodating. You must try the apricot scones for breakfast. Room and bathroom was squeaky clean. Better than the big hotels for sure. However great our experience, we probably will not be able to stay here again. We stayed with two boys who gave the sofa bed two thumbs... More

Palihotel is a pretty nice hotel with comfortable beds in slightly small rooms. The rooms are well equipped and you're definitely getting what you're paying for. Even though it's newly renovated the rooms are a bit noisy and you can sometimes hear when the neighbours are moving around in their rooms, even though it doesn't bother that much. The restaurant...

I stayed for one night at the Palihotel on Melrose. As soon as I arrived I felt at home, had breakfast, a delicious egg and bacon sandwich and orange juice. The room was very nice, dimmed lights and cozy. Cara was very nice at my check out!! Great location, rIght ON MELROSE, walking distance to the cool bars and shops.

This hotel is located on Melrose Ave. We had a car and it was very easy to find a parking spot on the streets around it. The hotel was nice, but different decorated. A little bit of industrial and country mix. Clean rooms, a little bit dark. The staff was very friendly and service minded. I would warmly recommend this... More

This little gem is really interesting. I am way past being 25 again that is the average age of the young people in the area and at the hotel.

Overall, I really did like this hotel, but there was one aspect that would keep me from staying there again, which is that you cannot control your room temperature from your room. If you want to change the temperature of your room you have to go up to the front desk and ask them to do it for you, as... More
