Room was spacious with a nice kitchenette and dining area. Large size bedroom with flatscreen. Lounge area with flat screen. Room overlooked flinders lane and location is perfect with heaps of stuff accessible from here including Southbank, Chinatown, Art gallery, Vic market (via tram ride) etc. Very enjoyable stay.

This is an ideal place to stay to do and see all that Melbourne has to offer. Great location, trams nearby, walking distance to bars, restaurants, cafes, lots of activities. The rooms offer some kitchen facilities in case you fee like dining in. The rooms are spectacular and make you feel relaxed at the end of your busy day out... More

The Sebel is very central. We walked everywhere including to Hisense Arena. Staff very friendly. Our one bed apartment was more than spacious if a little on the dark side. Decor is a little dull but the block out drapes are amazing. No restaurant is a bit disappointing but there are hundreds of restaurants in the area so not really... More

For our needs, Sebel Flinders Lane Apartments was perfectly positioned, not too far from Southbank and still within walking distance of most CBD destinations. If you're looking for a hotel with all the bells and whistles then this is not for you. There's no in-house restaurant (although room service is available through partner restaurants close by) for instance, though with... More

Lovely rooms, friendly service and great location with reasonable parking charges ($35) but they are closing the bar soon - so if you like an alcoholic beverage at the end of the day in surroundings other than your hotel room you may want to make a different choice. Well worth a stay if you are looking for a great Melbourne... More

What more could you want from a hotel. In a great location within walking distance to Flinders Street Station, tram stops, cafes, supermarkets and everything else you need. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and have excellent soundproofing so, despite the fact you are in the thick of things, you don't hear any outside noise or noise from other rooms... More

Hi Idgjam, Thank you for your review. I think you summed us up quite efficiently. It was great to read that you found the rooms to be comfortable and enjoyed the room service breakfast, I must say the food from Pronto Café is yum.

This is an older style hotel that has been beautifully refurbished into a modern and functional hotel. The staff are very helpful, parking is available at additional cost, and the location is close to good shopping and hotels. Recommended.

Members of my family and I have stayed at The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane several times over recent years and, honestly, we would rather keep it a secret. That said, I cannot in conscience deny the hotel the benefit of a deserving review. If you are searching for a small, relatively quiet hotel in the Melbourne CBD, you should consider... More

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 The Courtyard which 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
