During past visits we have always dealt with the front office manager John Tollis... More

Was in Melbourne for work for 2 nights, and was put up at the Amora. Very comfortable and modern, wanted for nothing. Room service was great, pricing was in line with what you'd expect to pay at a cafe etc. Great location for me too, being a 15min walk along the river to the office :)

This hotel is truly lovely. The staff are friendly, helpful and genuinely happy to be there. The buffet breakfast has a great selection of hot, cold and cereal. Rooms are mostly quiet, unless there's a party in the courtyard, then the noise ricochets up the buildings and gets quite loud. The beds are comfortable, there's a pillow menu (?) and... More

We only spent one night here but we'd love to come back again. The rooms were pretty standard but felt spacious with a lovely balcony overlooking a covered courtyard with glimpses of the river. The rooms were clean, modern and well stocked with all the amenities you need for a short stay. The bed was soft and we slept well,... More

Enjoyed our third stay here in 5 years. Although we had booked a spa room as we thought it would be bigger, we found it a bit cramped so we moved to a standard room 210 which had more room around the bed, a couch, a bigger bathroom and even some views of the "mighty" Yarra :) Close to all... More

In my room right now. Neat, tidy, queen bed, big tv etc. All good. Ordered room service last night and got the massaman curry. As a beef stew....a-ok. As a massaman...it wasn't. Spinach flatbread was nice but I have had plenty of massaman curry (it's my meal I use to compare new thai restaurants) but this just plain and simple... More

We had a one night stay and what a surprise. Lovely spacious room with all you could want, generous buffet breakfast, free parking, and extremely friendly and efficient staff. The bar and lounge areas situated in the entrance to the property were spacious and with plenty of room to cater for quite a large number of people. We will definitely... More

There was a group of 8 of us in Melbourne for the weekend and got a great deal on wotif. Location was great, check in and reception were fantastic. The rooms were nice and modern and liked that we could all talk to each other from our balconies. Would definitely stay here again. Also very handy with the tram stop... More

I recently traveled to Melbourne on business and stayed at the Amora. I have previously stayed at hotels in the CBD and can say the Amora has reset my expectations for business trips to Melbourne and is well worth the short trip from the CBD. The staff were very pleasant and efficient and made me feel not only welcome but... More
