Leslie on reception made our stay that special by going that little bit extra, remembering us and made our holiday special sending a birthday card for my mum's birthday signed by the hotel staff. Each day we walked through the foyer the staff seemed to remember you - you're a person not a... More

Beautiful historic hotel in a convenient location. Our room was lovely, the bed very comfy and we liked being able to order 'special' pillows. A couple of minor criticisms...the room became quite chilly at times and the bath robes were a bit 'tired' (clean, but bordering on 'scratchy'). I think it would be in keeping with the hotel's up market... More

It was an absolute pleasure to stay at the historic Hotel Windsor. The hotel is gorgeous, grand & reminiscent of the beautiful old hotels across Europe. It really was like stepping back in time. My room was clean, quiet & completely cosy. The staff were discreet & very helpful. The location of the hotel could not be better. The lovely... More

The filter of the heating was so dirty that we didn't switch it on in the room. Bathroom has no heating at all. Most of the room are interior rooms. No safety box in room. Very old and sad... More

I know what I am going to get with the Windsor. The staff are delightful and engage very well. The hotel is not new or shiny but it makes up for it in character & service. I like the location just across from gardens where I can go in the morning. Valet parking is since extra service

Prime location, very handy to restaurants, café, bars, shops, MCG, staff are very friendly and helpful, loads of character throughout the Hotel, highly recommend the Hotel Windsor to family and friends, the only slight negative is some of the décor needs freshening up.

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.

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.
