“Well placed for transport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

On a public holiday weekend, when hotels were filling fast in Melbourne, we managed to bag the last room available at Best Western Atlantis. Although this room did not have a view it was spacious, clean, comfortable and well equiped. The hotel itself is well placed for access to public transport being opposite Southern Cross Station with its regular bus link to the airport as well as an extensive train network, Spencer Street is also a main route for trams travelling throughout the city, including the FREE no. 35 which goes right around the CBD. There are lots of places to eat, drink and shop within walking distance too. Good value for money, I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If a view is important to you ask when booking.

My partner and I stayed at the Atlantis for 4 nights in March. As far as value for money goes in Melbourne at the moment you will not beat this Best Western run property.

We got a great room rate from the hotels own website and had good communication with staff before our arrival due to a late -night flight into Melbourne airport. Upon arriving at Spencer street via the Skybus the hotel was a short walk away and handily adjacent to a late-night Coles supermarket. We checked into our 15th floor room and were very happy with both the presentation and amenities. The bed was very comfy and the property was very quiet.

In the morning we enjoyed our complimentary continental breakfast( a choice of scrambled eggs, baked beans, toast, cereals, yoghurt, juice and/or hot beverages) in the well-presented dining room which was a great start to a day doing the tourist thing. The Atlantis is perfectly located with the free city-circle tram close-by and attractions such as Etihad Stadium and the outstanding Icehouse ice-sports venue a short distance away. The Atlantis also has a nice little pool and gym area which is perfect for a cool down or invigorating morning dip.

In short my partner and I couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel for our visit and with the costs of lodgings skyrocketing in Melbourne( to the point we were considering Bali as an alternative?) the Atlantis simply can't be beat! Stay there soon!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor room when booking to eliminate street noise and to a get a better view of the...

We recently stayed at the Atlantis for a weekend and found the amenties to be very good, the room quiet and clean and the breakfast a good start to the day. Close to transport and the Skybus to the airport.
Our only issue was the air conditioning was not working in the room correctly and as such the staff were able to quickly find another room without issue.

Room Tip: I had a Postcards promotion with a city view which included breakfast.

This hotel is great value and in a great location, we had a nice modern room which was clean enough, not too noisy especially considering the spencer st location and had a very comfortable bed. Continental breakfast was included which was a decent feed. Only cons were our room had a very noisy air conditioner, a few lights in the room did not work, the shower would flood bathroom unless you had it on quite low and there was no towel rail in bathroom to hang towels on only one hook on back of door. Having said that, we still enjoyed our stay and would return again.

We recently stayed at the Atlantis for a short weekend trip to visit family. The main reason we chose the hotel was due to the close proximity to the bus depot and from recommendations from family. The hotel room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable which is a big tick for someone like me who has a bad back. Bathroom was modern(no bath) and clean. The pool and gym (not used) were very inviting however we just ran out of time. Breakfast was included but I would have liked to have seen some bacon since there was scrambled eggs and baked beans. Location is good for transport however I think if I was travelling alone I would stay elsewhere as there are not too many places nearby that are one at night. No downsides that I can think of, the room was quiet which is always a bonus. No foxtel or in room movies which was fine for us. No in room dining although we did use the Italian restaurant next door which was "ok" but not fabulous. Would stay again if needed.

Room Tip: Good views over the stadium we were in level 12

Booked two nights only two days prior to checking in! Clean and well equiped room, helpful staff, extra comfy bed, close to everything and the pool, gym and breakfast room are an added bonus! The only issue we had was the drinking glasses we were left with had a build up of something ( nothing too hard to fix yourself). Would book again for our next visit!
