Stayed for 3 nights in a twin double with a friend, good quite location. Easy to walk to mall & Southbank, Close to free tram pickup & museum. Rooms had good facilities, dishwasher, hot plates, TV, DVD, fridge, big bathroom. Was a bit daunted by glass wall of bathroom but completely opaque - couldn't see through from either direction.

Would definitely recommend!

I stayed at this place on Thursday the 27th of Oct till Sunday the 29th of Oct .On Sunday evening on the news the Qantas flights were grounded leaving me stranded in Melbourne for 2 nights.I rebooked my stay at this hotel and was impressed at how helpful the staff were.I was able to keep my room for the 2 extra nights without having to check out and comming back after 2.00.I had a comfortable stay in this room despite being stranded in Melbourne.All the pubs and sights of Melbourne are within walking distance from this place.If you get sick of walking there is the trams.
I would highly recomend this place for travelers.

Myself & my partner stayed at the Fraser Place in September whilst on holiday in Australia. The hotel is centrally loacted and although the hotel itself doesn't have a car park, they have a deal with a local parking lot just around the corner.

Our room which was on a high floor, was like a small apartment, with a lovely comfortable king size bed, complete kitchen area and spacious bathroom supplied with Peter Thomas Roth toiletries.

The staff were very helpful. We loved Melbourne with its laid back atmosphere, although prices are high especially for eating out and drinks. We found a nice coffee shop around the corner from the hotel (The League of Honest Coffee) in Exploration Lane.

You could do a lot worse than book this place - recommended.

Fraser Place is a great hotel, convenient to many things, especially Chinatown, central Melbourne, Melbourne central and a short walk to most attractions. The rooms are good, new and modern, beds big are comfortable and the hotel is exactly what you what for value when travelling in Melbourne for business or pleasure. The only caveat with the rooms is that rooms on the Exploration lane side get noisy in the early mornings with rubbish trucks clearing bottles from the venues around it. The doors to the bathroom are opaque so when you put the light on at night, it illuminates the room, which can be a bit annoying. Aside from these minor points (but major if you aren't a deep sleeper :-) Fraser Place is tops. If you are a coffee snob, you must try the League of Honest Coffee on the corner, their coffee is fantastic. GaMi 2 doors up serves amazing Korean fried chicken and draft beer on tap, and the cocktail bar in between is excellent and quirky. Ya never need to leave the block!

Room Tip: Try to get a room not on the Exploration lane side.

Wonderful location little walk to IMAX, Lygon ST, UBD, China Town, Fed Sq etc and adj to both the free tram and free bus routes. Clean tidy and of adequate size room. The bed was huge and comfortable. Good hot shower and free amenities. The cooked bfast included in the deal was good. Although the cooking facilities were there we didn't use them but everything was there including dishwasher. We found it was very quiet there even on a Saturday night. Try 65 degrees (around the corner) best cafe! and opens 6am - watch them roast the coffee beans and serve gourmet snacks. When in Melbourne we will go back. Also thanks to the friendly staff and their recommendations.

Room Tip: If you don't need wheelchair access don't pick a room with it - they don't have a shower...
