Quality Batmans Hill On Collins (Formerly The Batmans Hill)

Quality Batmans Hill On Collins (Formerly The Batmans Hill) Hotel in Melbourne

623 Collins Street

On my booking confirmation the hotel we booked is

Batman's Hill

66-70 spencer street


How can a hotel change name of street, the only thing I can think of is it is on the corner of these two streets and the doorway has been moved onto collins street during the refurbishment??????

Has anyone stayed here? let us know how you found it. (that is if it is the right hotel!)

Not stayed here but stuck my head in the lobby. Nice lobby and its a renovation of an old 1930's bank building and an adjoining 1970's office block. And your right- its on the corner of Spencer and Collins street. It has trams running down both streets (Collins st tram will take you down to the shopping area about 5 mins away or a 10-15 min walk) and oyu are opposite Southern Cross Station (formerly Spencer st station). The station is where the airporter bus comes into.

I do know that reviews do seem to be mixed but i suppose its all a matter of perception and expectations. My take on it is its a 'city motel' in standard - menaing a 3 star place at best. Adequete with a couple of frills but no more. You have a mini supermarket across the road and a few eating places. It is at the office precient end of the cbd but also a short walk from the Crown Casino complex and the Telstra Dome (Auusie Rules football ground) and Docklands with a plethora of resturants.

Thanks 6andy6

We found out from the internet that the airport bus is called Sky bus. It leaves the airport every 15 - 20mins during daytime hours and it cost just $24 return per adult. This is fantastic and since it stops just outside our hotel opposite the train station, that is even better. Thanks for putting us on to link.

We don't travel until march 07 so I guess it is a bit too early to purchase an online ticket now? I will have to find that out

Stayed here a couple of times.

Old rooms are motel quality, all different shapes & styles.

New section are all brand new rooms.

Last time I had a 2 brm apartment in the new section.

You can upgrade at the hotel if rooms available for a fee.

Skybus depot is about 200 - 300 metres from the hotel.

Never used restaurant. Tram & train right outside the door.
