Reviewed January 10, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights early January and thought it was great. Fabulous location with the tram virtually outside the door and only a few minutes walk to the mall. Parliament train station is literally around the corner and China town is only a street away. We stayed in a Studio Executive room on the 20th floor which had everything we needed. The kitchenette was well equipped even though we only made breakfasts. The room was well laid out with a very comfortable king size bed, good sized shower, ironing facilities and access to a paid movie channel. There was also a laundrette across the hallway. We would thoroughly recommend this place.

Stayed: January 2013, traveled as a couple

The family and I stayed for almost a week.

We loved the location and whilst the hardware is great, the soft ware even better.

Was the first time on holidays in Melbourne for us so we need a lot of help. The front desk staffs were not just really professional but also went out of their way to help. They offered loads of info and great suggestions. They were also very responsive and attentive.

We loved the apartment and the fitness facilities; lap pool, sauna and gym.

You can also get some room service from the Japanese restaurant on the ground floor. The service is fast and efficient.

We were disappointed with the poor quality and instability of the WiFi connection. The service is outsourced. After the fourth call to the service provider I just gave up.

Room Tip: Double check that the WiFi works...

Always clean, with well-presented rooms. Good sized showers, but bathroom a bit unusual, as the basin / vanity outside in the main bedroom, not with the shower and toilet.

Staff friendly and helpful.

Room service only goes to 10pm, which is disappointing.

Ask for a king-bedded room on a high floor.

I stayed at Citadines for three nights in early January with my partner and we both loved it. We stayed in a Studio Executive room on the 20th floor and it was spacious and very modern. We never heard any noises from the adjacent rooms - they were either empty or the walls are heavily sound proofed. Either way we were quite happy as we had a peaceful stay.

The location of the hotel is excellent. We bought a 'myki' card for the trams on our first day as we thought we would need to catch a tram to most of the places we wanted to go. However, we hardly used the trams as we found that most of the attractions were within walking distance from the hotel (Melbourne Museum, Queen Victoria Markets, Federation Square etc). The hotel is also close to a City Circle tram stop (free tram). It was great being in the heart of the city but still in a quiet area. The hotel is close to great bars such as Madame Brussels, Cookie and the Croft Institute (although the Croft Institute was unfortunately closed while we were there).

I would definitely stay at Citadines again if I am ever back in Melbourne.

My husband and I stayed on 14th floor of this hotel for new year's eve. It was wonderful. The room was very spacious and the shower was huge! The kingsize bed was a wondful surprise, as was how comfortable it was. Pillows are usually an issue with my husband, but he was very happy to find that they were luxurious and the bed linen was lovely and crisp. The whole room was spotlessly clean. The staff (even at 2am) were very helpful. Brilliant location - close to trains and trams. We will stay again next NYE.

Room Tip: Our room did not have a bath, only a shower. Fine for us, but some people like baths.

I booked a room with king size bed for 5 nights in late December. Upon arrival booking in was easy no problems. When I checked out my King bed, I found that it was in fact 2 singles pushed together creating a substantial ridge in the middle. I raised this with the front desk and was told that all hotels do this for king beds. I know this is incorrect having slept in true king beds before. After a little back and forth the changed me to a double room wihich at least had a bed without a ridge in the middle. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Location is perfect for city shopping and restaurants especially chinatown.

Room Tip: Double check you bed choice when staying here.

Dear David S,

Thank you for your recent patronage, and for your feedback.

Please be advised that the bedding in our Studios offers a choice of either a queen-size, or a king, which, as you have mentioned, is a "king split", formed by joining two single beds. To ensure the comfort of our guests, the joint is covered by a plush layer. Such bedding also provides the flexibility of converting to twin bedding should the need arise.

I am delighted that our Guest Service team provided you with a satisfactory alternative, and that our location and service enhanced your visit.

My team and I look forward to welcoming your return soon.

Yours sincerely,

Bryan Loh

We stayed 31 December 2012-New years eve. We enjoyed our stay, executive studio room was excellent and lots of facilities. Amazing view of the city, the pool, sauna and gym were amazing. We cooked breakfast and they have a quality non stick pots and pans allocated. My son appreciated the staff around the floors, he mentioned that they were very helpful especially when they see someone who is unsure on where to go around the hotel.
We walked around the city of Melbourne and we felt tired and so we just went back to the hotel to have a rest. Great location.

Parking was so convenient and secured under the hotel. Very handy.

We invited family members as well for our next visit at Citadines.
