“A very comfortable hotel at a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

The hotel is excellently located in central Melbourne, within walking distance to everything. I am a light sleeper, but there was no noise in our 10th floor room despite the CBD location. The hotel is well appointed, and the room well set up with tea/coffee, microwave, toaster etc for self catering if desired. There is also a nespresso machine with a wide range of capsules for self service in the comfortable lounge. Reception was helpful and welcoming, and found a room for us despite our 12:30pm arrival. All in all, highly recommended for a short stay in Melbourne.

"this was the first time i have stayed at this hotel and being an all suite hotel it was brilliant.

The suites were exceptionally clean. Great housekeeping

The front office staff were great with fast check in and gave excellent advice on where to get good breakfast in the morning I usually stay at the Stamford when on business and they were full but this was a nice surprise and just as good however no restaurant internally. Hotel is right at shops, bars and great food. Will stay again no problem. .

Great place to stay to explore Melbourne. The apartment was beautiful and well appointed. It was also quite quiet for Melbourne. The room was large and the bed was comfy. Surrounded by great places to eat, would happily stay here for a week. Lovely lounge downstairs where you could read the paper have a coffee and spread out. No gym on site

Four of us stayed here in January, for a few days. The apartment itself was newly decorated, lovely kitchen area, neat and tidy. We had a one bedroom apartment with a fold out bed in the living area. It was ok for a few days, but any longer would have driven us crazy. The only drawback was that it was a little small for four adults. I know it states a one bedroom apartment when I booked it, but I was assured there was ample room for four.
I would stay here again, as the location is excellent. This hotel is not fully serviced.

We stayed here recently as a family of 4, as we had travelled over to Melbourne to watch the 'Dr Who Symphonic Spectacular' on the Friday night. Having stayed at the Pan Pacific in Singapore recently, I was preparing myself to be disappointed as a comparison would be unavoidable, but I am glad to say I was not!
We arrived at 6.30 am on the 'red-eye' from Perth, caught the Skybus from the airport into town, so we were at the Sebel by 9.00 am, and much to my surprise were allowed to check in to the room (606) straight away. A shower and sleep during the day made the late night that followed much more enjoyable. Room was spacious, well furnished, and a good sofa bed for the kids to sleep on. On the Sunday morning, we all slept in until 10.30 after a busy weekend, and with an 11.00 am check-out, things were tight. After speaking to staff on the front desk, we were allowed to check out at 1.00pm instead. Front desk staff was friendly, professional and more than happy to answer our questions.
Would definitely stay here again when next in Melbourne!

Room Tip: The room was extremely quiet given the busy location in the heart of Melbourne. Our room on the 6th...

Hotel Class:4 star — The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane Apartments 4*
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
