It was the first time I had stayed at the Grand Chancellor and I will most certainly be returning. The room was warm, quite and very clean, I had a lovely view and it was a short walk to shops and restaurants. The perfect stay.

I had the smallest room and it was great for a low cost overnight stay. Nothing to complain about at all. It was just a good straight forward clean room with a good location in the city. Close to everything in walking distance. Would have no problem staying again.

The hotel is located close to Chinatown, so plenty of good restaurants that are also quite cheap. Go over to QV square for really great food. Woolworths also located here. The hotel is well located between the MCG (the main reason that we stayed there) and also a short walk into the centre of town. Staff are all very friendly...

Hard to beat location sandwiched between the Chinatown and the CBD, the area is always busy even at late night. Although in my humble opinion, the room need a touch of renovation, and the slow elevators. Do try the chic Drystore Espresso coffeeshop nearby.

This hotel is in a central location. Staff were very friendly and courteous. The room, while small, was very clean and we will definitely stay there again. Room service was prompt and food was delicious and breakfast was good value and delicious too. Great value for money!

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.
