“Newly renovated & great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Right in the heart of Melbourne CBD, the room was a good size with kitchen, lounge, bedroom & bathroom(great shower head). Only complaint was the room had a really strong smell when we first arrived from the new carpet. But after a few cups of coffee and opening all the windows the smell went. Check in/out was easy, we ordered breakfast from local cafe from the in room menu, food was tasty & not too expensive. The bed was really comfortable & there is a little balcony which is an added bonus as you can open the doors and let some fresh air in. Overall a nice hotel & would recommend it.

We were eager to see the renovations and were not disappointed, except that they didn't include laundry facilities in the apartments while they were at it.
I hate having to pay $5 per wash & dry when most similar places have individual laundries with powder supplied.
The $30/night parking is a bit steep too, when some hotels in inner Melbourne charge $15.
Still it's very convenient to a supermarket, transport, shopping and has some lovely cafes & restaurants within a stone's throw.
Helpful staff and a quiet haven. Just don't expect a view.

Room Tip: The 6th floor has a courtyard.

We recently stayed at the Grand Mercure in one of the interconnecting suites with some friends. The rooms are stunning, the company has done a spectacular job with the refurbishment. This would have the nicest room we have ever stayed in. The staff on the front desk and the housekeepers are friendly, professional and happy to help out with any request. Will definately be staying again and will recommend to all of our friends and family.

We had a two night stay and found the Mercure to be tastefully decorated with a bit of old world charm but with all the mod cons that we have come to expect when travelling around.
The hotel is centrally located in the city and once we had our car parked away we didn't need to use it for the weekend as everything is at your door step.We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone considering staying there.The rooms were very clean and comfortable we were made to feel very welcome.We will stay there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane was completely refurbished in September 2011, when it celebrated its 90th anniversary. The refurbishment design philosophy drew inspiration from the early "fashion house" days with a view of creating an expression of sophisticated elegance, through an individual design concept that would remain unique to The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane. The result has turned this "all suite" apartment building into a market leading boutique hotel. Presented is a contemporary range of sophisticated one bedroom suites that infuse modern design philosophies with the architectural and historical heritage of the building. Archival Melbourne scenes are displayed in the black and white artwork that adorn the corridors, evolving into a celebration of Melbourne's modern icons throughout the suites. With the retention of the original detailed cornice and architraves, blended with contemporary designer furniture and fittings and modern state of the art appliances, the change is exceptional. The sophisticated colour palette is the key design element, from charcoal European bathroom tiles, contrasted by the white, chrome and glass designer fixtures to the use of dark veneers, stainless steel, leather and stone throughout the design.New Guest Features include The Courtyard which is a European inspired inner city escape that provides guests with an intimate courtyard garden to share a drink with friends or to simply relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. While the days of fashion are well in the past at 321 Flinders Lane, those looking for a fashion experience will not be disappointed with The Sebel Melbourne's Flinders Lane location. Ideally located between Elizabeth and Queen Street, it is in close proximity to Melbourne's shopping, and entertainment district with the added benefit of having Melbourne's famous cafe culture and the iconic Flinders Street Station right around the corner. ... more   less
