My wife and I recently spent 10 nights at the Grand Mercure Flinders Lane Apartments and we were both delighted at our stay.
The location is really hard to beat. Flinders Lane is approximately 1-1/2 blocks from Flinders Station with the fantastic Federation Square and free tourist bus just across the street. Its merely a walk over the bridge to enjoy the Royal Botanical Gardens and Natl. Gallery of Victoria .The apartments are surrounded by great restaurants and there's a Cole's supermarket and liquor store just a block away. We had an easy walk back to the apartment late at night after dinner, shows, etc. and felt safe and secure.
The entire staff reacted quickly to our every needs, from filling up our ice bucket to scheduling morning wake-up calls. Edith is truly a first class hostess.
Our tastefully decorated apartment was particularly lovely with a separate seating area and desk. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a large tiled shower along with a deep bath tub. Melbourne sizzled with record high temperatures but our air conditioning was up to the task.
The kitchen area was spacious with refrigerator, range top, microwave, utensils, and good sized kitchen table.
The giant sized leather couch and huge HD television were super nice in the living room.
