“No cable tv, reasonable room size, quiet”
Reviewed May 19, 2011

Stayed two nights here for a conference at Melbourne convention centre. Yes, it's far away from Melbourne convention centre, so location wise I made a mistake there. Had the morning buffet breakfast included, the food was ok. Probably would've preferred McDonald s breakfast though. Scrambled eggs, baked beans, bread can be toasted, butter, etc, juices including apple, pineapple, tea, coffee.

One of the elevators broke, so had to wait 20minutes during peak periods to get back to my room on the 14th floor. Nice!! Sarcasm*. Hotel staff seemed average, free the australian newspaper in lobby to pick up yourself daily.

Tv size I think was 20inches? Didn't measure. No foxtel, just digital free to air tv. Which I found to be very poor reception and tv goes in and out of darkness.

Liked the bathroom shower. Good strong pressures. No free wifi.
Sheet and bed was clean. Easy access to free city circle tram.

The hotel was basic and clean. The rooms were functional. 1-2 members of staff were exceptional. The rest were rude, uninformed and generally unhelpful. We were there for our honeymoon and forget about making it special for us. It felt like they did everything to spoil it. We contacted them well in advance for an early check in. When we arrived they didn't do anything. We even offered to pay more. They have an indoor pool that is not heated - What is the point. Would not recommend it.

I stayed at the Atlantis before my wedding and I was really happy with my stay. Docklands was nearby so I had a beautiful last dinner as a single woman and had a gorgeous sleep in the luxurious bed. My bridesmaid and I got ready in gorgeous sunlight because the room was so full of light in the morning and it was big enough for both our luggage and my wedding dress.

A quick trip to MEL, third time here, room was not ready on arrival but I was early, they stored my luggage while I went shopping. I got back to the hotel just after 1pm and they had a room ready, room 701 in the tower with the notorious broken lift, no problems now, my room was right beside the lifts and noise was not a problem.
The only thing this room needed was a lamp on the desk as working at night on the computer was hard without direct light, there was also no DVD player in this room or microwave, neither were required but an oddity in consistency.
The bed was a dream to sleep on, front desk staff lovely, my booking from Hotel Club had not come through but this was taken care of and the inclusive breakfast was perfectly adequate for the room rate and the breakfast room kept in top order.
It's great value here.

The Atlantis hotel offered a very good standard of new clean and modern rooms in a very convenient location and can be recommended. Reception staff were pleasant. There were good views from the Spencer Street side. The location across the road from the airport bus terminal is ideal. Trams are outside and Southern Cross Station within a very short walk.
There were, though, occasional flaws that seemed oddly inconsistent. The room was spacious and clean but with the window was very dirty on the outside. The bathroom was beautifully modern but lacked towel rails. The indoor pool, sauna and gym were of a high standard but there was nowhere to change and put your clothes, not even a hook on the wall. I did not take the buffet breakfast as it was only continental. As other reviewers have commented, some simple hot dishes would have made all the difference. Overall, though, a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Ask for Spencer street side, also higher floors

Stayed here on a recent trip to Melbourne.
I thought it was great value .
Stayed in a Dockyards view room. It was spacious and clean with a lovely city view.
The breakfast was a standard buffet breakfast but enough for me to eat.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
I would stay here again.

Recently I stayed this hotel with a group of friends and thought I should let you know what a wonderful experience we enjoyed.

The rooms were perfect, very clean and modern.

The staff were very friendly, happy and easy to deal with.

I would rate the hotel as good as, if not better than any other more expensive 4/5 star properties I have stayed in.
