Must say it has a bit of a basement feel about it, but the Royce Hotel otherwise is a lovely stay. Beautiful lookout over Melb Grammar School, helpful friendly staff. Travelling alone I would prefer room service for dinner but it is not on til 10:30 pm. My sad. If you are poor of sight, though, the wattage is low... More

After a booking error I turned up at the Royce Hotel, while they were booked out, they still were able to find a room at midnight! The service, breakfast and hotel is fantastic and on the short list for when I visit Melbourne which is monthly. Depending on your location needs this place is exceptional! Well done the Royce team!

I stayed at the Royce hotel for a recent business trip to Australia. The hotel was very nice and provided all the comforts one needs when away from home. Staff was very professional and efficient. Service in the Amber Room could have been a bit quicker. Overall, a very nice experience and I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is in a very convenient location. The room was rather dark though ( I arrived late, and the next morning was overcast at first. So more lighting would be much better. People walking around upstairs could be heard throughout the night.

Good, attentive staff and the facilities were great. Good size rooms with very modern furniture. Quite room with a good view overlooking the green of the school oval. Disappointing that curtains could not be opened to allow more sunlight in, however did not affect the stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience Melbourne's designer boutique hotel, perfectly located on St.Kilda Road next to the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens. The CBD, Southbank precinct, Melbourne's art and theatre district and the fashionable Chapel Street are all within a short tram ride away. The hotel features a lounge bar, award winning restaurant, private outdoor courtyard, business area and meeting facilities. Once renowned as Australia's most glamorous automobile showroom in the 1920s, the Royce housed prestige vehicles such as the Rolls Royce. While the exterior of the historical building retains its classical features, the architects and designers have redesigned a modern and chic interior to suit the discerning traveller. They have depicted a unique accommodation experience by creating a hotel that is distinctively different from any other. ... more   less
