“Great short stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

No complaints from us regarding our stay at the Novotel on Collins. From the valet parking (be ready for a busy curbside) to the checkout, we had no issues. The check in was fast and prompt, the room itself was clean and spacious, the breakfast buffet was of a great standard, the checkout was fast and simple. The walls and door are a bit thin though, I could hear our neighbours and people walking past our room- keep that in mind if you are a noisy romantic ;)

We would return if needed for a night in the big city

The location of this hotel is great. Heart of Melbourne with trams out the front, shopping arcade next door and walking distance to everything you'd want to see in Melbourne. Only hassle is arrival where there is loading zone area only so doormen have to be right there and ready to go otherwise you can get some grief from passing traffic.

We were celebrating our two yr wedding anniversary. There was strands of hair on the floor in thr bathroom and on the towels. The bathroom filter hasn't been cleanes in a while. At midnight our clock alarm went off, aircon was rattling all night. Did mentioned this at checkout. The staff were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our free drink at thr bar.

We stayed at the Novotel for three nights and we really enjoyed our stay. I had booked our room on Expedia and on check-in we found out we had been upgraded from a double room to a family suite which was a nice surprise. We have two young kids so the separate bedroom with two twin beds was perfect. Our room on the 9th floor overlooked the shops so there was no sunlight shining in the room in the morning, this helped the kids sleep in a little longer then normal. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Nespresso coffee, robes and slippers were an added bonus. The location on Collins was convenient with plenty of shops and cafes in walking distance and two blocks from the river. Valet parking is expensive, but I assume it is everywhere in the city. The hotel staff was very friendly and quick to pick up and return our car for us (even after 11pm after our return from a day at Phillip Island). There is a tram stop a block away which we made use of on a cold, rainy day. We did not eat at the hotel so I can not comment on the restaurant or room service. I would definitely recommend the Novotel for a business or family stay in Melbourne!

Had a delux room, room was very new and looked great. Can't go past the terrific location and the wifi was quickest I have had in any hotel in a while. Will stay again. The pool was shut for repairs ( not a big issue for me but best check if it's something you want)
