Our recent association milestone was celebrated at the Windsor. It was a night to remember with great food, unbelievably good hospitality and the location along with all its grander really topped the night off. Very majestic and good old fashion service. Well worth the visit when you are in Melbourne next.

The hotel is beautiful and staff are wonderful. The superior rooms are very spacious and clean. The only thing was you couldnt adjust the heating and the room was very hot. When I turned it off it was ok but then it got very cold. Location is excellent opposite Parliament and close to Collins and Bourke Street Corners.

What a great pleasure to stay in such a lovely old but grand place. Loved all the old world charm of years gone bye. Cannot say anything but good things about the staff, they were all so friendly, attentive, polite and went to great lengths to be of help and service.

It's an absolute pleasure and a joy to relax and unwind at the Hotel Windsor. The salubrious surrounds only epitomized by the warmth and hospitality of all the staff. Management have the right recipe for success here. The a la carte breakfast menu shows the skill and finesse of a very clever chef and their team. Can't wait to return.

Excellent old world hotel with fine service and comfortable rooms. First-rate location between two tram lines and easy walking distance to most city-center sites. Concierge services recommended an very nice nearby Indian restaurant.

Great hotel. A little surprised by the very good quality of the food at One Eleven. We had dessert on the first night and breakfast on the second day. Service was also very friendly and setting was beautiful.

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.

Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance.
