Absolutely brilliant base for exploring Melbourne. This historic hotel shows its age in a way that is classy rather than dated. Rooms are comfortable and appear exactly as advertised, concierge is top shelf. The Cricketer's Bar is absolute gold, had a nice vibe and atmosphere during Happy Hour. Trams and trains are literally outside the door, within free team zone,... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to a Stay at The Hotel Windsor for our anniversary; we are so pleased we did! From our arrival we were impressed; the spacious suite was grand and immaculately presented, the bed was comfortable - and made even more so by the personalised choice of pillow! - and the robes plush!

This Melbourne iconic hotel is old world luxury situated in Spring street at the top end of Collins street. This is a beautiful hotel which offers a superb English style high tea with all the trimmings. For me it is a must, but suggest you book as it is very popular.

lovely old hotel refined but not over posh in keeping with modern times but retaining enough of the past to still satisfy R Menzies and co. Cricketers bar is a bit tired and needs a facelift of sorts without overdoing. Side alley (Winsor lane or Place) can be noisy from around 7.30 am with suppliers loading/unloading. A holding bar in...

I've alway wanted to stay at the Windsor but was disappointed. We had to go back to the desk three times on the first night before our key card worked. The suite furniture was a little tired and in need of repair. There was no turn down service or paper in the morning. This is the only 5 star hotel... More

Good location, style and ambience but very tired needs a good refurbishment. Large room but stuck in the 50's. Breakfast the old fashioned way could be a challenge for a businessman in a rush. If the price is good would recommend.

From the moment you step through the front door, the Windsor will wrap you in the charm of yesteryear. Exceptional service from the reception staff. Grace and beauty that you just don't find at other establishments. Highly recommend.

Especially loved the complimentary bottle of champagne for my new wife and I. The room was nice, the bed was comfortable and the restaurant down stairs served us an amazing breakfast. We would definitely stay again.

Unfortunately I thought the room was dated but it was still nice. However i was dissappointed that the room only had a queen bed, I would have thought all rooms would have had a king size bed. But the most dissappointment I had came in the bathroom. The shower/bath facilities were extremely small and dated. However the most frustrating thing... 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 Hotel Windsor is Australia’s most loved and recognised grand hotel. Built in 1883 during the Victorian era and pre-dating other notable hotels such as The Savoy, Waldorf Astoria, Ritz Paris and The Plaza Hotel, it set a benchmark for style, elegance, sophistication and charm which remains ever present today. The hotel is located in Melbourne’s most central and fashionable district. Its location is in close proximity to the corporate, financial and designer heart of Melbourne. Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance. The hotel is located 20km from Melbourne’s Domestic and International Airport, with a traveling time of between 20-45 minutes. Parliament train station and tram stops including the City Circle route are located at the hotel’s doorstep. ... more   less
