“Lobby on 2nd fl. but understandable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The location is perfect. The hotel is transformed from an old building and has just one shop space as entrance to find the lobby on the second floor. Therefore, it has very limited space for other facilities like meeting rooms. However, the room has been renovated to a very nice condition. Due to limited hotel staffs all the enquiry will have to be made through the operator rather than specific staff for different department like housekeeping or the front. There is WIFI internet service but has to be paid but if you upgrade the room for $30/room/day it is free.

Fantastic location in the middle of Collins Street. All rooms are a couple of floors up so are not affected by the the hustle and bustle of the busy street below. Walk to Federation Square, Queen Victoria Markets, Southgate or just about anywhere from this super convenient location. Rooms are of a good standard (we stayed in a Premier King room). The only comment (not so much a criticism) is that our room was quite a long walk from the nearest elevator through many twisting and turning corridors...not a problem for us but could be an issue if less mobile. Would definitely stay here again when next we visit Melbourne.

The team at Novotel on Collins welcome and embrace you from the moment you arrive at the concierge. Rooms are excellent and recently refurbished, restaurant is also newly renovated and is excellent to start your day with a buffet breakfast worthy of a melbourne venue. Definitely will return

Room Tip: high floor away from lifts

We would have been extremely satisfied with this hotel for its location, room size and amenities, breakfast and facilities but what made it exceptional was the care, compassion and concern shown to myself and family after my elderly mother had a fall while getting on a tour bus outside the hotel. They provided immediatie first aid and also gave us the use of a wheelchair for our stay.

Thank you for staying with us and for your kind comments about my great staff and our location. I was happy to read the special attention and our service has had a positive impact on your stay. I have shared your compliment with my team especially the Manager on Duty who looked after your mother. I have passed on the note you kindly send to me. Thank you for appreciating the extra step and care my team had taken.
Hopefully we can see you both for another visit.
Yours sincerely

Stayed here with my daughter for a pre wedding shopping trip. It was a perfect location for shopping and eating in all the lovely Laneway cafes. We had a basic twin room on level 8 but it filled all our needs and was whisper quiet considering we were in the very heart of the city. Also the two double sized beds were great.
Clean and comfortable with a nice fresh modern bathroom. My only complaints would be that after the first night our room hadnt been cleaned at 3.15 pm, and the next morning when we were going to have tea in bed we found that the room tea and coffee supplies hadn't been refreshed.
These were minor complaints in what was a very comfortable stay. I would return.

From the moment you arrive where the staff cannot do enough for you and are extremely polite and helpful to the moment you leave you are made to feel so welcome. The food is terrific, the wine list is a little resticted but for a short stay quite acceptable. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the beds are a good receipe for a great nights sleep. I cannot recomend the Novotel Melbourne on Collins highly enough.

Perfect location for exploring Melbourne. Concierge, restaurant and bar staff all great, reception not so much. Rooms are lovely and facilities good. Disappointing to have spa out of order the 4 days we were there. Location easy for shopping, trams, Southgate, Flinders station. Great breakfast and lovely having real coffee included.
