Fraser Place Melbourne
Ranked #13 of 153 Specialty Lodging in Melbourne
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We considered Fraser's on two counts, price and location and it met our needs on both. Only regret was not trying out is amenities as we were on the go most of our time there. It's location in a quiet lane off La Trobe Street gives you the feel of not being in a big city. Not easy to locate if you are there a first time but taxis and airport buses would have no trouble.

We stayed there a total of 3 nights in a studio room. Check in good, perhaps the staff should smile a bit more and not be too officious. Compared to Asia, the room is fairly small but very functional. It's got a kitchenette thrown in if you felt like cooking with the required utensils. Unit was clean, bath and shower great. Sleep quality also good. Internet was patchy at times though.

Getting around was a breeze. A lot of attractions were within walking distance and taking the tram was easy, it runs from La Trobe. You'd be spoilt for choice making up your mind as to what to eat. Many many eateries to satisfy every craving you might have.

In short, it did not disappoint us.

Stayed here for two nights - wished i had booked longer as later on when i wanted to revisit it on my second week in Melbourne, it was sold out!! The rooms are really spacious with great beds and showers. Daily room service so they keep the place nice and clean - all the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Offered good value for money compared to other place and was just a good base to stay at. Well worth a trip

Near two wonderful jazz venues. Comfortable rooms, nice shower, good rates, and superb location. Nice kitchen amenities in the apartment if you want to cook. No parking but no worries, the tram is close.

We spent 4 nights in Melbourne. Being located near bars, trams and shops only minutes away was really ideal. We stayed near enough to the top of the hotel facing La Trobe street. Our room was great, however being so close to the roof meant you could hear generators, etc coming on at 5am each morning. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a hidden little gem here in Melbourne. It's down one of the lanes so has virtually no city noise, close to China Town, Theartre's, Bars, etc etc.
Great price considering it's location and has all you need in a city apartment.
Stove top, fridge, toaster,kettle, dishwasher,washing machine, cutlery and plates, iron and board and bathroom has amenities.
Rooms are quite a nice size and very clean, bathroom is great too. Bed is king size and very comfortable and bedding is very fresh.
Reception was friendly and welcoming. Parking is extra and off site but just around the corner in the Church grounds, ok for an overnighter, not sure how you would go if staying short term as it may be expensive.

Room Tip: Ours was facing the lane with a balcony which was nice

These apartments are well placed with everything that a family might need while on an extended stay. Don't expect service as this an apartment type place. Room cleanliness was pretty bad curtains and decorative pillows on the bed were stained and not just a few stains really bad and this was the only disappointment. Avoid the scrambled eggs at breakfast ( weird smell) again didn't expect high quality food so no major disappointment toast and coffee was my staple every morning. Great location walking distance to all the action and Chinatown. Elevators take forever and is normally packed with staff and their work gear so plan ahead if you have some place to be at a specific time. Overall convenient and comfortable stay.

Fraser Place is in a great location, close to Chinatown and a lot of the sights. Although the room is very small it was extremely well-equipped with everything you could possibly need if self-catering. It was very clean and comfortable.

The only negative is the noisy airconditioner which may be because it is old.
