I had a Saturday night off work (a very unusual thing indeed) to spend in Melbourne with my girlfriend and a mate of mine suggested staying at the Brooklyn Arts Hotel. The first thing I could say is how convenient a location it is; so close to the city and northside plus getting southside in a taxi was super quick. The place is awesome, very antique and luxurious. Maggie helped us settle in before we headed out for the night, came back late and electric blankets had heated the bed up all nice and toasty. The ensuite was cute and the shower hot. Loved the little covered balcony too. Most importantly I had a great nights sleep, just what you need on a night off! Will definitely be staying again next time I head to Melbourne.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Brooklyn is a perfect place to stay if you are not looking for a standard hotel room. It is beautiful, friendly, quiet, interesting, quirky and personal, within walking distance of central Melbourne. The atmosphere is relaxed and congenial. There is a garden to sit in and birds to listen to.Brooklyn is a big old house on the city edge of Fitzroy. You can walk through parks or take a tram a few minutes from the door, to city venues, stations and airport connections. Fitzroy’s great mix of people makes this one of the most interesting parts of Melbourne to hang out in. ... more less
