“Back again!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

As per my earlier review, we did indeed return to this hotel. Great location, comfortable, cheap prices. Definitely 'no frills' and you get what you pay for. No free upgrade this time, although we did make use of their parking - reasonably priced and efficient. No complaints at all about this hotel and I must stress that the location is perfect! Will (hopefully) be back for a third stay.

This hotel is in the heart of downtown, giving you access to a lively neighborhood 24/7. It's also very close to China town, so if you fancy some dim sum breakfast, this is the hotel for you.

The hotel is not on the main street so the noise level was reasonable. The room size was pretty standard.

All in all, nothing amazing about the service or the hotel.

I have recently been travelling regularly to Melbourne for business. I usually stay at an Accor hotel and usually I have nothing but praise for the hotels I stay at.
Unfortunately, at my most recent stay at the Welcome, I was given a room that smelt like a smoking den. I left the a/c on for the 3 days I was there, and by the 3rd day, the smell was only just dissipating. In addition, I had "neighbours" that opened and shut their door every hour. Very noisy.

The only down side was there was only one lift working as they were doing work on the other. My room was next to the lift well and they started working on it before 7am on week days - if I was there on holidays I wouldn't have been impressed.

Our family stayed at Mercure Welcome hotel during our holiday in Melbourne from 9 to 12 June 2013. Prior to the trip, we did some research on the hotel's location and access to the shopping area around it, and also got some reviews of the hotel. We were extremely happy when we reached the hotel and found that Chinatown is just a traffic light away!

The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the central Melbourne, and walking to the Flinders Street station is just 10 mins where we took the free city tram ride around the city! Adjoining to this hotel is the Grand Mercure Swanston hotel, and we exit and enter from this lobby daily. There are many eateries and shops on both left and right side of this door, in fact the duty-free shop is located on the right of this door.

We were delighted that porridge is served daily at the buffet breakfast counter. The food is replenished quickly once it is running low, and bacon and hashbrown are yummy. Somehow, the cinnamon raisin loaf thick slice is very tasty.

Rooms are slightly smaller, compared to those hotel which we have stayed previously. However, for tourists who are out most of the time for sightseeing, the rooms are neat and sufficient for a comfortable rest.

After checking out from the hotel, we strolled around and realised that David Jones and Meyer is just next door to the hotel. And the mini mart is located just opposite the hotel.

It was truly a very delightful stay for our family, we can probably come to Melbourne again and explore on our own and stay at Mercure Welcome again.
