My wife and I make our visits to Melbourne infrequently now, after a lifetime of business travel. We like to visit mid week and mid winter to enjoy the delights of wandering the city centre and the laneways. All our visits are now contingent on our being able to get a room at the Flinders Lane apartment hotel. It is... More

Hi Mervyn M, Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. It is great that you now get to travel to Melbourne for pleasure rather than business and at the time that it suits you, that sounds wonderful. Thank you for putting a positive spin on the limited facilities that we do have at the hotel.... More

This is a great hotel/apartment block very central to everything in Melbourne CBD. It's a beautiful old building renovated (although the rooms are meant to look art deco they actually look a little sleazy/brothel like!!) but very comfortable and clean. The staff were very helpful, especially Jo. There is parking available but at a cost and unless you drive here... More

We had an overnight stay at this hotel in one of their studio apartments (its really a 1 bedroom apartment). The lobby downstairs was small and cosy with a fireplace and comfy lounges.

Stayed for 5 days in Sebel Flinders Lane. This stay was as an Accor Vacations Club Member. The location is great - close to trains, tram system and major attractions. The hotel does not do catering, but the kitchen is very workable. Location close to the Victoria Markets (by quick tram) means that access to high quality food is very... More

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

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.

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
