4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Spacious room, quiet and lovely view, natural light and new block out blinds made relaxing easy. Great location for business trip or holiday. Food great at restaurant and service very good. New renovations give feeling of freshness and space. Recommend highly

I stayed at the Novotel on a Friday evening in March. It is a well appointed modern hotel with all the perks of a 4 star property.

As you exit the lift you are gretted by a modern dinning and bar area with the reception off to your left. Check in staff were polite and made check in a good experiance the wait was not to long either.

We were in a premier room on the 12th Level. Our room overlooked the atrium which was quite different to a view of the city or street below as with most other hotels in Melbourne. It still had plenty of natural light that filled the room through the atrium roof and block out blinds for privacy from the public eyes below. Mind you the windows were also tinted.

Bed comfortable and King Size. Bathroom was a bit of a squeez but the shower was quite large.

The only downside to the property is that you have to take 2 lifts to get to your rooms. One from the street to the lobby then one from lobby to the rooms. with a small walk between each.

If you are booking the premier rooms they are located a fair walk from the lifts on the "quite side" of the property.

We had a late night snack in the bar around 10:30pm after a fun night out on the town. The food was excellent quality as were the drinks. The bar is quite a chilled out area and very relaxing.

All in all an enjoyable stay at the Novotel Melbourne. Thanks!

Great location. I had a 'panoramic' internal view into Australia on Collins... not cool if you're a shopper. Very cool if you are in Melbourne for business. The location of this hotel is superb in the heart of the city and close to everything.

Second time around just as good. The location is central Melbourne, which makes it easy to explore Melbourne City. Even though it's on a busy street, there is little street noise. The staff are friendly, even to a solo traveller. Will stay again soon.

One of those special moments where you want to stay and know that everything is handy & close by. Staff looked after us in such a special way even ensuring our Daughter was looked after with toys. All shopping in the City very accessible. Rooms were excellent & we had two fabulous nights sleep. Highly recommended

Nice hotel, lovely staff and good location if staying in the city, only thing a bit concerned about was the fact that they charged my credit card with the cost of the room + even though we paid with cash and eftpos on check out. On querying the charge I was advised that it would be refunded and is just a hotel policy. I am not sure if this is common practice among the larger hotels but not something I have encountered before.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the pillow choice, I did not like the pillow provided but we got in late so did no...

Stayed there for one night and everything was within grasp. This is a highly recommended hotel for anyone who is on business. You will be surrounded by all the offices and things that you need for business. Even if you are not on business but out on leisure, that's a good hotel with most of the things you need around you. With a tram stop nearby, and on a Main Street, saying that it is convenient location is actually an understatement. The rooms are nice and well designed, making the place look more spacious than what it actually is.

Room Tip: If you like a view, get a room facing the main road. Have your room further away from the lift is a...
