“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We stayed here while in Melbourne for the tennis and it was a great place to stay. We were in apartment 809 and it is large, broken up into 5 spaces which act as rooms. There is a kitchenette with a dining area, then a lounge with leather seating and a large TV, then an office with another lounge and a desk, then the large bedroom, and finally a huge bathroom with a shower, and a large free-standing bath. It is conveniently located for the trams or trains as Flinders Street station is around the corner. A small Coles supermarket is around the corner on Elizabeth Street. We used the valet parking, which was $35 per day. Our car was brought to us promptly when we wanted it. Being a serviced apartment, the room is serviced only once every 4 days, but this was fine with us. If I was staying for a week or so, I'd be slightly disappointed with the small amount of storage in the bedroom. As we were there for three nights, it wasn't a hassle leaving most things in our suitcases. I would be very happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: We had a Signature Suite (room 809) which had a king bed and two sofa beds. The apartment was huge a...

We stayed at the Sebel for 4 nights whilst in Melbourne for the tennis. We stayed in room 1007 and could not be happier. The location is close to everything you could want in the CBD. Trams, shops, southbank, restaurants are all at your doorstep or within very close walking distance. I have read some negative reviews about these apartments not being serviced, not sure why this should come as a surprise to some people as this is explicitly stated on the website. That said i do believe they will clean your room if requested.
Now for the room itself. It was perfect, the apartment is extremely large, with a kitchenette and dining table as you enter, through to a large lounge with a comfortable leather lounge and office desk. The bedroom is larger than some display home bedrooms! the king size bed is the most comfortable bed i have ever slept on, including mine at home. The bathroom is of sufficient size with beautiful dark tiles. Overall it is a large apartment for the price. My wife is very fussy about cleanliness in hotel rooms, this apartment and the building in general was immaculate, credit to the cleaning staff.
Staff were not overly friendly, however did the job nonetheless. The last night we were there we had issues with our air conditioner, which we reported by phoning through to reception. 30 minutes latter Edith rang with an update on the repairs, which was considerate of her. Went to try the pod coffee machine the morning we left, however to our disappointment it was out of service. Amazing decor in the lounge and bar area, up there with some of the finest hotels i have stayed at, namely Stamford etc.
In summary luxury, well fitted out apartment. Will be returning for our next trip to Melbourne!

Room Tip: ask for room 1007

Stayed for a week and couldn't be happier. Location near public transport and all the city sites perfect. Complimentary pod coffee machine a fantastic idea. As is the guest laundry. Wifi free for APVC members and Foxtel included. Helpful efficient front desk. Kitchen cooking provisions a little limited. Loved it

Lovely rooms, terrific position and a short walk to every thing.
This is not a serviced room e.g. they only change linen every 7 days?
The bar was always shut, but there are heaps of great taverns, bars, restaurant's within a 5 minutes walk.
Lets face it when in Melbourne get out of the room and go an see the city sights,
Must do is the vintage restaurant tram, it was awesome!

Location is really in the center of everything.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor, get away from traffic noise.

Dear NIJ-55,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the apartment and of course the wonderful location. Being unserviced apartments, they are cleaned upon each guests check out. Should any guest require a mid stay clean this can be arranged directly with reception. The bar area is only staffed for private parties by prior arrangement. Of course guests can help themselves to the complimentary refreshments and use the lounges.
Again, we thank you for your review and look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane was completely refurbished in September 2011, when it celebrated its 90th anniversary. The refurbishment design philosophy drew inspiration from the early "fashion house" days with a view of creating an expression of sophisticated elegance, through an individual design concept that would remain unique to The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane. The result has turned this "all suite" apartment building into a market leading boutique hotel. Presented is a contemporary range of sophisticated one bedroom suites that infuse modern design philosophies with the architectural and historical heritage of the building. Archival Melbourne scenes are displayed in the black and white artwork that adorn the corridors, evolving into a celebration of Melbourne’s modern icons throughout the suites. With the retention of the original detailed cornice and architraves, blended with contemporary designer furniture and fittings and modern state of the art appliances, the change is exceptional. The sophisticated colour palette is the key design element, from charcoal European bathroom tiles, contrasted by the white, chrome and glass designer fixtures to the use of dark veneers, stainless steel, leather and stone throughout the design.New Guest Features include Lounge 321 located on the ground floor of the hotel, which provides guests with complimentary internet access, newspapers, magazines, games, business and entertainment TV channels. The Courtyard is a European inspired inner city escape that provides guests with an intimate courtyard garden to share a drink with friends or to simply relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. While the days of fashion are well in the past at 321 Flinders Lane, those looking for a fashion experience will not be disappointed with The Sebel Melbourne’s Flinders Lane location. Ideally located between Elizabeth and Queen Street, it is in close proximity to Melbourne’s shopping, and entertainment district with the added benefit of having Melbourne’s famous cafe culture and the iconic Flinders Street Station right around the corner. ... more   less
