“Great service, Nice rooms (park view), location next to Vic Mkt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Radisson although we were heart broken when we discovered the roof spa being repaired the day we arrived, and we had moved from another hotel to use this! But it was repaired by next day at least (Staff should have informed us and others about the repair, but we heard them telling another person about the spa as we walked out the same day it was broken). The Radisson is an older hotel that has been upgraded. The elevators, lobby and rooms are nice but some features like bathroom fixtures are still a bit old and tired. But we loved our room with park view and it was very quiet! Even the door closing mechanisms are perfect so there is no "slam" when people leave their room. There is a building under construction behind the Radisson, so be sure you stick with park side. They do have double paned glass for noise abatement. The bed was comfy but had a lump in the middle for some reason that we could have done without. Coffee in room was excellent, TV quality good, and the internet speed was great (included w/ our room). Location is fantastic if you like Victoria Market (what's not to like?) since it is literally around the corner. The gym equipment is new and clean. The spa is great with a super view of the city, but the water could have been warmer. The steam room works very well and it is clean. All in all, we were pretty happy at the Radisson, and would recommend it with caveat about which room to pick. Parking is provided by commercial lot around the corner for reasonable rate of $15.

Room Tip: April '13: there is a building under construction on back (non-park) side of hotel, so use cauti...

This was our favorite hotel of all 6 we experienced during our 3 weeks in Australia and New Zealand. We thought the location was great... quiet and comfortable. Our room was good sized and very clean with excellent bed linens, pillows and plenty of bathroom toiletries. Breakfast was above average. Caught the City Circle tram close by the hotel.

Stayed two nights at here in november 2012. Got an upgrade to a business class room due to my club carlson gold status. The room was really nice with a view over the Flagstaff Garden. The check-in was fast and efficient. The hotel is easily accessed by public transport and a few minutes walk from Melbourne Central.

Although very close to the enormous Queen Victoria market and a few cheap eateries nearby this hotel is located in an out of the way place in Melbourne. For tourists though the free City Circle tram is a handy way to get around. The rooms are ok and are similar to the standard Radisson Hotels elsewhere. Staff are very helpful and friendly and give advice on car parking, restaurants etc. Breakfast buffet is quite good. Good walk around Flagstaff garden early in the morning is refreshing. Can browse around Queen Victoria market on Sunday for some nic backs. Overall a good hotel but not in the thick of things.

Room Tip: If they offer a view of the Park but not charge extra for it the take it.

Staff extremely helpful.
Location ok (in the CBD, just near the Flagstaff Station). Just near the Queen Victoria Market.
The room was nice, decent size.
Check in at 2pm, check out at 11am (or late check out at 11.30am).

I have stayed in this hotel many times while on business in Melbourne. As Club Carlton member I am always well looked after and the service is very friendly. Walking distance to other restaurants as well. Will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor and not near lift (my standard request)

We stayed for 5-nights in February 2013. The room was a decent size, comfortable though a little dull and overlooking Flagstaff Gardens. A little noise from the service lift but otherwise quiet enough. An excellent restaurant with a wide menu (French chef, personable and skilled) - none of that rubbishy in-room "service" as at other places. Staff could not have been more helpful. Got to speak as you find : wouldn't have liked a room at the rear facing a building site, but ours was very good indeed. Free overnight parking in the streets around (hotel helped in hiring a car for the Great Ocean Road) and free Metro stop 100 yards away. Gym and jacuzzi on the top floor. An excellent start to our holiday down under - my thanks to the managers, chef and all the staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room opposite the Gardens, not at the back.
