I travel to Melbourne every week and every week I try a different hotel because I find most, if not nearly all of them are dirty and have extremely bad beds that look 20 plus years old. Even the expensive hotels are dirty. We found this one by accident and although looks a little old and worn out from the... More

The location is great, central enough but away from main hustle and bustle of the CBD. Fantastic rooftop pool, and excellent helpful and friendly staff. Can be a bit noisy at times as rooms not praticuarly soundproof.

The hotel lived up to their online image. Gorgeous rooms and friendly staff. We even received a free room upgrade, which was greatly appreciated while we celebrated our anniversary in Melbourne. Location was great in the heart of the city.

My daughter and I had a couple of days in Melbourne and stayed at the Grand Chancellor. Great location and the room was very nice. The shower was fantastic. Will definitely stay here again but our room was right on Lonsdale st and very noisy till the bars closed. Will book a higher level next time or at the back... More

I stayed here recently for one night. Room quite small but had all that was needed. Trouble with electronic door key cards which was quite a nuisance. No noise problems. Buffet breakfast quite nice. I would not stay again even though reception staff in the morning were lovely. When I made original booking my requests were apparently noted but changed... More

The Grand Chancellor Melbourne is my preference for visits to Melbourne. Staff are very hospitable, courteous and always go out of their way to be helpful. Rooms are well prepared and welcoming. Food is at a consistently good standard. I keep going back.

Location was great with just a short stroll to Vic Markets, Burke St Mall and shopping. Windows all round for natural light, quite noisy from the traffic to people in the corridor, however this is reflected in the price which was good value. Buffet breaky was good, would have liked to see oats. Service fast and friendly

Good Value for money in the room we had. Has everything you need. Shower takes about 10 minutes to get hot which isnt ideal. Restaurant is average, room service has a $5 delivery fee which is quite funny. The only reason I wont be staying again is the painfulness of the credit card pre-authorisation. A week later and I am... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
