Stayed here during the Anzac long weekend. This apartment style hotel is beautifully furnished with French décor throughout. We even received a courtesy phone call on the day as we were waiting for our flight out from Perth to check our arrival time! Check-in and check-out was swift and hassle free.

Our apartment was located on the 3rd floor, facing Flinders Lane. There is a well equipped kitchenette, lounge room with flat screen TV, couch, writing desk and chair and a balcony looking out onto Flinders Lane. The bedroom also has glas sliding door overlooking Flinders Lane. But there are two doors to get through, so it is absolutely quiet and peaceful once closed. There is a king size bed, flat screen TV, wardrobe and small open shelf cupboard with two drawers. There is an open space here for your luggage. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The bathroom holds a large shower with rain shower head and hand held shower rose; single vanity/ sink and WC. I am curious what they treat their shower screen as after 4 days of using the shower, the glass screen still looks clean and streak free!

There is a lounge downstairs with very comfortable seats and coffee machine for guests.The apartment very close to Flinders Street Train station. It is within walking distance to cafes/ restaurants on Degraves Street and Hardware Lane. The only cons are the cost per night, it is not serviced (and I do love fresh clean bath towels :). But overall an excellent stay.

This recently refurbished facility was a joy to stay in. The décor was modern and comfortable on the eye. The bed was huge with a TV in the lounge and bedroom. The staff were extremely helpful in booking trips and other requests. Location in Flinders Lane is ideal for walking around and shopping in central Melbourne & only a 5 minute walk to Flinders Railway station and Federation square. Being an apartment it has good kitchenette facilities, 2 element hob, microwave size oven (could have been microwave, didn’t need to use it), Dish-draw dishwasher, Hot water jug and toaster. We elected to prepare a light breakfast in our room rather than going out. For food around the hotel you are really spoilt for choice. We did enjoy a our 4 day stay here.

It's easy to miss The Sebel in Flinders Lane because it's tucked away along a one-way street, with large buildings folding in on either side. Once you realise where it is, use the valet parking, stay a night or two and put your walking shoes on. That doesn't mean the hotel is a long way from anywhere, quite the opposite. You will realise that it's close to everything so a car isn't needed. The hotel rooms are fresh, but predominantly this is an apartment style residence. There is a lot to like in this oasis.

Dear Robyn12,
We are glad you enjoyed your "hidden oasis" at The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane. It's definitely close to Melbourne's main attractions.

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
