We travelled by train to Melbourne to attend a concert at Etihad Stadium. The Atlantis hotel was located perfectly for this trip. It's across the road from Southern Cross train station and a 5-10 minute walk to Etihad.
Check in was efficient and staff were courteous. This is a four star hotel, so you shouldn't expect some luxuries like a mini-bar, room service etc.
We had a room without a view, and that is no exaggeration, our room looked out onto a brick wall, you couldn't even tell if the sun was shining or not! The size of the room was decent, it comfortably fitted a Queen size bed and a small sofa. The bathroom is very small and the shower looked like it could do with a good clean. The bathroom is poorly designed with no towel rails and only one hook at the back of the door. I also found it odd that there were no facewashers provided.
We had a good night's sleep, the bed was comfortable and it was very quiet. Due to a concert at Etihad the hotel seemed to be full, but when you were in your room you wouldn't know that there was anyone else around, no noise seemed to travel.
If I was coming back to Melbourne for an event at Etihad Stadium, I would definitely consider coming back here.
