“Gluten free options, great location”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

The Holiday Inn is on Flinders lane and Spenser st Melbourne.Short walk from Southern Cross Railway station. This is where the Skybus from Melbourne airport terminates. Very handy. Clean tidy with Gluten free options at breakfast and dinner. Handy to the free tram on Flinders street and also Collins and Spencer street trams. Staff were friendly and helpful.

and nothing really to complain about. That said, the Holiday Inn certainly is pretty average overall. The staff was efficient and friendly at Check in. Situated right next to Southern Cross station it is in a central spot to most of Melbourne's nightlife (clubs, bars, Casino) and popular with younger tourists (at least when we stayed there). The hotel looks modern and clean but already showed plenty of wear and tear that a coat of paint can't hide. The lobby is a nice open and modern space but the room was small and a bit musty. The bathroom was well laid out and good water pressure. Again, the Holiday Inn is a fine choice if you just need a central place to put your head down (Holiday Inn's pillow menu is actually a nice touch and the bed was pretty comfortable). The other choices I have tried in this price category in central Melbourne are not better or worse for the most part. The Holiday Inn does offer a nice pool area which gives it a leg up over some of the hotels in the vicinity.

The television and telephone did not work properly and the staff were unconcerned when I informed them and made no acknowledgement of inconvenience caused. The toilet ran continuously after flushing. Buffet breakfast was very limited. Will not go again.

The Holiday Inn on Flinders is a great value in Melbourne's CBD. Located near the Southern Cross Station, it is easily accessible from the airport by Skybus. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet. I visit Melbourne about once per year, and I always stay at this hotel.

Hotels in Melbourne are expensive - plain and simple, the difference between two very nice hotels can be $100 per night for not much of a difference.

This a very clean hotel with a polite and friendly staff. It is very close to the bus station, so if you are coming from the airport you can hit the main bus for $17.00 and walk 3 blocks and you are there.

The only down side is that it is on the west side King Street, so at 6:00 am you can see people stepping out of a night club or gentlemans club after a " Big Night" and they can look a wreck.

That said it is a safe neighborhood right in the middle of the city and only a 500 meter walk to the dead center of town.

Stayed 3 nights in a standard room. Room OK but tired and in dire need of a makeover, particularly the tiny bathroom. Beds comfy enough though. Curtains were torn and wouldn't close properly. Because of Melbourne Cup the room was more expensive than usual and really not worth the price paid. Will book somewhere else next time. Staff very friendly though.

I hosted several of my company's international clients at the Holiday Inn, and all were incredibly impressed by the hotel's facilities. They reported that rooms were wonderfully presented, and the staff went out of their way to assist one of our partners who arrived from an early morning flight from China. I myself have stayed at the hotel, and found the beds to be incredibly comfortable, and the room service menu to offer a great selection of delicious treats. Great hotel, although I have to say that they NEED to update their restaurant. I recall stepping in there and thinking that the carpets were terribly stained, and not at all an indicator of how great this hotel actually is.

Room Tip: Rooms on a higher floor facing away from the street are a bit quieter.
