I recently stayed at the Sebel Apartments in Flinder's Lane Melbourne. Despite the fact that the Apartments are due for refurbishment, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. The amenities are more than sufficient (mugs for tea and coffee are a nice touch). Hot chocolate sachets would have been an extra nice touch. The Apartments are in a quiet yet central... More

We booked a relaxing weekend in Melbourne, we found the Sebel to be both relaxing and comfortable with friendly helpful staff. We arrived early about 11am and thought we would drop off our bags and go and explore, we were told our room was available which was a nice change from being told by most places that you can't check...

Stayed here for a Friday and Saturday night. The room was fine, stayed in a classic room with a king bed. Bed comfort was good and the bed sits in a separate area from the lounge room/kitchen.

Rooms are spacious, clean, styled nicely and hotel is located in the heart of Melbourne. Front desk staff seemed overwhelmed. Room didn't have enough towels and front desk was hesitant to provide more. Wifi was sketchy and unreliable given the caliber of hotel and price. Also expect NO daily maid service and you must dispense of your own garbage. Less... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations! The staff was very pleasant and friendly. The suite/apartment was very clean, beautifully decorated and HUGE! I loved the location as it is in the heart of everything. My husband and I was able to easily walk to desired locations and had easy access to trains. I would definitely recommend this hotel!!!

The location of this hotel is fantastic the rooms are large and comfortable. Close to lots of amazing places to eat close enough to Burke street to keep taking all to shopping bags back to the room. The down side no restaurant on site so you always have to head out no matter what the weather.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane was completely refurbished in September 2011, when it celebrated its 90th anniversary. The refurbishment design philosophy drew inspiration from the early "fashion house" days with a view of creating an expression of sophisticated elegance, through an individual design concept that would remain unique to The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane. The result has turned this "all suite" apartment building into a market leading boutique hotel. Presented is a contemporary range of sophisticated one bedroom suites that infuse modern design philosophies with the architectural and historical heritage of the building. Archival Melbourne scenes are displayed in the black and white artwork that adorn the corridors, evolving into a celebration of Melbourne’s modern icons throughout the suites. With the retention of the original detailed cornice and architraves, blended with contemporary designer furniture and fittings and modern state of the art appliances, the change is exceptional. The sophisticated colour palette is the key design element, from charcoal European bathroom tiles, contrasted by the white, chrome and glass designer fixtures to the use of dark veneers, stainless steel, leather and stone throughout the design.New Guest Features include Lounge 321 located on the ground floor of the hotel, which provides guests with complimentary internet access, newspapers, magazines, games, business and entertainment TV channels. The Courtyard is a European inspired inner city escape that provides guests with an intimate courtyard garden to share a drink with friends or to simply relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. While the days of fashion are well in the past at 321 Flinders Lane, those looking for a fashion experience will not be disappointed with The Sebel Melbourne’s Flinders Lane location. Ideally located between Elizabeth and Queen Street, it is in close proximity to Melbourne’s shopping, and entertainment district with the added benefit of having Melbourne’s famous cafe culture and the iconic Flinders Street Station right around the corner. ... more   less
