The Parkview Hotel is good value when placed in comparison with other city hotels. It is in a great location halfway between the city and St Kilda with a tram stop nearby. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds, and they have also been recently refurbished. You can also wind open the window - which I really appreciate. Breakfast was the same as can be expected at any other hotel of this class - lots of choice, but not the best quality - why is it always like this? If you like having a nice view, it is worth asking for a park-view room, we got one without request, and were very pleased.
