My husband and I recently stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is located in an excellent position right in the centre of Melbourne with easy access to shops, restaurants (particularly Chinatown) and transport. Check in was efficient and staff were friendly. The room was clean and spacious with all of the amenities that you would require. The décor was somewhat outmoded and the hotel is tired and in need of an update. The downstairs bar with the poker machines was crowded and loud however the upstairs bar was comfortable. In terms of value for money, the three nights for the price of two offer was particularly good value. If you are not going to spend of lot of your time in your room, I would recommend this hotel for a stopover or short stay.

I found the Swanston Hotel in Melbourne to be an excellent central location. The staff were very helpful and the rooms clean and comfortable, all at a reasonable mid-range price. I have no hesitation in staying again at the Swanston when next I'm in Melbourne.

My mum and I stayed here for 2 nights. It is on the same block as the mall so we were able to drop our shopping back to our room and have a drink in the middle of our shopping. The beds were comfy. The bathroom was modern and had an amazing showerhead and luxury shampoo/ conditioners. The swimming pool was lovely and had great views over the city. The staff were really friendly. We definitely recommend and will stay here again.

Not having spent any time in Melbourne before, we were keen to have central location from which to enjoy our stay. The Swanston proved to be perfect for that purpose and we were able to access all our targets with ease. Spending most of our time " on the go ", we didn't stay in the building a lot, however it was a very pleasant place to come back to at the end of the day.
Would have no hesitation in returning for future stays.
