“Excellent in every way would recommend”
Reviewed August 30, 2010

My 3 daughters and daughter in law took me to Melbourne for a lovely birthday celebration weekend. We stayed at Citadines in Bourke Street and found it really central to everything we needed and our 2 bedroom apartment was just beautiful. We were on the 24th floor and had lovely views and found it very quiet and peaceful. The beds were very comfy and linen first class. It was spotlessly clean and we would recommend to anybody. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks a million!!

We just spent 3 nights at this hotel and found it a grat place to stay. Rooms well equipped with everything you could need including microwave oven, stove, cutlery. The bed was huge and would easily accommodate parents and children! All the facilities are new as the hotel opened in July. The restaurant was not yet opened but we were able to charge our food from the 2 restaurants next door.
Staff friendly and helpful. They rang for our airport transport and held our luggage while we waited. Excellent central location within walk of everywhere, close to Chinatown, food outlets and all major attractions. Also has lovely pool and fitness room.

I stayed for the weekend at this hotel with a friend on a girly weekend in Melbourne and was very impressed. The staff were friendly and helpful & the hotel in general is brand new, great fixtures. Everything has that new smell & look to it. We requested a high floor which we got & twin beds. Rooms were spaceous enough, beds were comfortable & tv, stereo etc were all great. Bathroom & shower were great too.

You can't really go wrong in a hotel this new but I was certainly impressed at its standard for the price!

Pool & Sauna are great & I just had a quick look in the gym & that looked more than efficient!

Would stay again & definitely recommend.

Opened less than a month ago, this hotel did not disappoint, everything was clean and new. Great view from our 23rd floor 2 bedroom apt over the city. Beds were comfortable, room was clean and quiet. Service was efficient.

I spent a 3-night weekend at the new Citadines on Bourke and really enjoyed the stay. My partner and I have a 3 year old so with the fantastic rates being offered due to the hotel just having opened, we opted for the 1-bedroom Premier room which was fantastic. Very spacious, plenty of room for us all and with a complete kitchen, it's a great hotel and as I have done several long-stay trips in the past I'd be more than comfortable here for prolonged periods as well. Obviously as the property is absolutely brand-new (as in complete new build) everything worked, was clean and in its place. I wasn't crazy about the eerie yellow/green decor throughout though - I don't think it will age well at all but comfort trumps colour schemes in my book any day. And despite the check-in where the woman attending to us seemed a bit cool in her reception, overall the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be that apparently the larger apartments come with queen beds, while the smaller studios come with king sized beds. Why they put the smaller bed in the bigger apartment is beyond me. The aforementioned check-in woman explained that because the 1-bedroom apartments have a separate sleeping room they put the smaller bed in there. That doesn't make any sense to me, why should I not get a big bed when I'm buying a bigger room? In any case, I'd highly recommend this hotel for any length of stay, but I'm sure the terrific introductory rates won't last long so best to get booking soon!

We stayed here with our 2 boys for 2 nights to catch the Wallabies and catch up with friends. The location is fantastic - trams at your doorstep, walking distance to the mall and so many shops , cafes and restuarants nearby.

Check in was smooth and our 2br apartment had everything we needed ( Kids beds needed to be remade as singles, but this was done immediately). The decor is funky and being brand new - everything is so clean. We thought the beds were really comfy (great reading lights attached beside the bed) and the new sheets were yummy. Plenty of storage space, fully equipped kitchen(Fisher and Paykel fridge and dish drawer) and flat screen TV with cable but no ipod dock. Wired internet in the room but there was a charge I think. Toiletries were limited to shampoo, soap and shower gel, but the bathrooms are groovy.

The pool, gym and sauna are great, we made good use of them.

We would definitely stay here again. The teething problems will sort themselves out - my bedside light needed a new globe - they ran out of globes as so many didn't work, but this is really minor compared to the value, location and cleanliness of the aparthotel. We prefer an apartment to a hotel so this is perfect for us - if you need hotel services, you would be better staying at a hotel. The pictures are a accurate reflection of what to expect.

We had a couple of great meals - Pellegrinis is just up the road and Chilli Cafe on Exhibition St. So many funky spots around this area, you won't be disappointed.

Hotel is nice and new, Location is pretty good, close to Bourke street mall and easy walk to anywhere in CBD, and MCG. A good restaurant right next door.
Tram directly out front of building takes you down to Docklands and Etihad stadium. Had a problem first night with A/C, however the staff could not have been better, helped us change rooms and came with us to check that other rooms A/C was working.

Would recommend for a trip to footy, shopping etc
