“Highly recommend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

We recently spent 3 nights here and would definitely recommend it and go back again. The pool area is now functioning and they also have a steam room and small gym - not bad considering the room rate! Location is great, a short walk to the train station and two short stops later you are in the city, so I disagree with previous post that getting to the city is hard..it is easy! Trams close by too so the whole city is accessible. The recent decor update has been done tastefully and the room with seperate bedroom was a fantastic space to spend time in. Has own balcony with opening doors if you enjoy fresh air instead of stuffy hotel airconditioning. If you are wanting something in a truly Melbourne area just on the edge of the city, with shops and transport close by, at a great price, then I would highly recommend this place.

The room was clean and the service was great. I just wish it was in a better location! We were a young couple that spent most of the day doing the tourist attractions and most of the night out at resturants, bars etc however the distance to travel after a night in the heart of Melbourne started to get pretty annoying. When your only there for a short stay I would definitley stay closer into the heart of Melbourne so you have more time to cram things in. Melbourne is not a huge city and it does have a great transport network - just not at night!! (taxis get very expensive)

Room Tip: There is a train line on one side of the hotel, if you can get as high up as possible or ask for a s...

Thankyou for your feedback about your stay at Medina Executive South Yarra in November 2011.
Since your stay we have had our refurbishment completed which included soundproofing of all bedrooms facing the railway line. This now provides a good night sleep for all our guests.

South Yarra is a fabulous area with a short walk from the hotel you have many restaurants on Toorak Road, shopping down Chapel Street and the South Yarra train station is only 3 stops away from Flinders Street station in the heart of Melbourne.

We hope to see you back in the near future.

Kind Regards,

I stayed here with my boyfriend for one night, but the experience was beyond excellence!! The one-bedroom apartment was clean, cozy and homely, and the mini kitchen was fully equipped, which is perfect for family vacations. While staying here, it felt just like staying at home! My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here, and we sure will stay here again for our next visit. The recreation was great too!! Medina South Yarra surely is one of the best accommodations in Melbourne area. I will recommend it to my friends and family :)

I booked this hotel before reading thd reviews and was genuinely concerned about what we would find !!!!

All i can say us that this was one of the best and most stylish hotels I have stayed in - an immaculate 2 bed apartment - no problem with parking - staff were excellent - would be VERY happy to stay here anytime.

I have stayed several times at Medina South Yarra and each time I have found it to be of an A+ standard.
My husband and I do live in Melbourne but if we have a function in the city we opt to have a night out and will stay here.
We find paying almost the same amount in a taxi to get home is a good reason to have a spoil.
The staff are polite and helpful and have even remembered us (again I express the fact that we have only stayed there on 3 or 4 occasions)
We were advised of the refurbishment occurring and from what I have seen so far, it’s going to look fantastic once complete. Staff told us to let them know if we found anything wrong with the apartments we had stayed in so that they are aware of them. But again we have been advised of the changes and understand that these things do take time.
The sound proofing of the windows has been fantastic! Although the trains didn’t bother me too much previously, I can certainly tell the difference!
The location is ideal for us. We can go for a walk down the road and have dinner or breakfast. It’s close enough to the city without being in the city. The parking could have used more thought in the building process. It is a tight turn but in the same breath I know my car is safe & secure so it’s better than being on the street risking parking fines or thefts. And I have had a bad experience with valet so I prefer to park my own car.
Overall our experiences have been positive and if we have had any issues (our movie froze at 1am) we have found that either the staff or the Manager (who personally attended) has been extremely helpful in finding a way to rectify it speedily and with as little inconvenience to us as possible.
We will stay here again and will certainly recommend to our friends / family.
