Holiday Inn Melbourne on Flinders
Ranked #78 of 160 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed February 22, 2012

It's a fairly old building but only the bathtub is a giveaway. Rooms are a good size. King bed. Neat desk with proper office chair and easy access power points. Only stayed one night and didn't eat there. Very handy to Southern Cross station and tram routes.

My partner and I arrived for just a overnight stay, when we arrived we used the hotel parking, your car is parked up for you while you book in,parking cost A$35 a day, a bit much I think, check in was quick and plesent, we were also lucky to get a upgrade, the rooms were clean with plenty of space,the mini bar was well stocked, but once again didn't use it as things are just way too expencive, the bathrooms need a upgrade, and i just don't get the small baths in hotels, my one big gripe would be that you had to pay for the internet in your rooms, but here's a tip pop down the buisness centre and it's free, we didn't have brakefast so can't comment.
All in all a plesent stay and I would stay here again, it's in a great place for visiting Melbourne city center both tourist areas and shopping and just a short tram ride away from the mcc and not too far from Albert park, other sports grounds and ice skating is within walking distance , the casino is also just a short walk away.

The staff and their customer service are certainly the best feature of this hotel, and helps outweigh shortcomings in other areas. I stayed in room 425 for 3 nights. This room overlooked the pool, and was reasonably spacious. However, the bathroom was only fair, and the tile grouting looked dirty, although I could see attempts (poor) had been made to fill in certain areas. An interesting feature of the shower, which was in the bath was the curved shower-curtain rail, which gave you a little more room to move and prevented the cutrain from sticking to you. One serious problem that needs to be addressed, for people like me as I get a little older is the need for a rail of some sort for support in the shower. The shower nozzle was fantastic withthe best pressure I have ever seen. Other points for noting:
1. The pillow choice was excellent, and the bed was very comfortable.
2. Unfortunately the A/C pointed directly at the bed, so not able to use during the night.
3. The gym was very small with limited equipment.
4. Breakfast in the restaurant was satisfactory.
5. A couple next to me had a huge "domestic" at 12.15am, with nothing spared in the language stakes.
6. A late check-out of 2pm was granted without any problems - thankyou.
7. Not much space to put your clothes, so I just worked out of my suitcase.
8. Plumbing noises from adjacent and above rooms was very obvious.

We stayed here for one night, when attending a show at Rod Laver Arena.
The hotel is centrally located and near to tram stops and train station. The hotel offers valet parking for $32, which is money well spent. Beware of the car park in Flinders Lane as the weekend special at $15 will have you getting your car out before 6am to avoid a second day!!
The rooms are somewhat tired with poor views, but the hotel is not expensive for a city centre location. The room was clean and bed was comfortable with a range of pillows to try.We had a meal in the ground floor restaurant, which was well prepared and presented. The staff were excellent, with a great attitude. Breakfast was buffet style and good, but not brilliant! Great value,and we would stay again.

Room Tip: Although rooms at the back of the hotel look out onto the backs of other buildings, they are very qu...

We stayed for three nights at the end of a busy four week tour of Australia. The reception staff were very helpful with directions and the buffet breakfast, eaten whilst watching people coming and going on the street outside, was excellent. The hotel is very well placed for the excellent tram network. We had a room at the back of the hotel overlooking the swimming pool and, despite being close to the elevator, it was very quiet. Earlier in our tour we had stayed at another Holiday Inn and joined their Priority Scheme. We were therefore able to take advantage of a late check out. This was useful because on the day of our departure we had a direct flight back to the UK and were able to rest beforehand. This was our first visit to Melbourne and the hotel really added to our enjoyment of the city. We hope to visit the city again in a couple of years and we shall choose Holiday Inn on Flinders next time.

I have stayed a few times at this hotel and I have been pleasantly surprised by it. The staff are very friendly - better than those in some more expensive hotels. Reception is efficient even when busy. The rooms were refurbished a while ago and are a good size with comfortable beds however on my last stay my room had some very obvious scuff marks on the wall. The bathrooms were not refurbished but are clean and well appointed. The mini bar area is well designed and well stocked (and not outrageously priced). I have had mixed experiences with the room service meals - some (like the burger) have been great while others (curry) tasted like a microwave curry from the supermarket. Food is pretty well priced with cheaper "take away" options. The buffet breakfast has a reasonable selection of food and the espresso is good and strong.
