My wife and I recently spent 10 nights at the Grand Mercure Flinders Lane Apartments and we were both delighted at our stay.
The location is really hard to beat. Flinders Lane is approximately 1-1/2 blocks from Flinders Station with the fantastic Federation Square and free tourist bus just across the street. Its merely a walk over the bridge to enjoy the Royal Botanical Gardens and Natl. Gallery of Victoria .The apartments are surrounded by great restaurants and there's a Cole's supermarket and liquor store just a block away. We had an easy walk back to the apartment late at night after dinner, shows, etc. and felt safe and secure.
The entire staff reacted quickly to our every needs, from filling up our ice bucket to scheduling morning wake-up calls. Edith is truly a first class hostess.
Our tastefully decorated apartment was particularly lovely with a separate seating area and desk. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a large tiled shower along with a deep bath tub. Melbourne sizzled with record high temperatures but our air conditioning was up to the task.
The kitchen area was spacious with refrigerator, range top, microwave, utensils, and good sized kitchen table.
The giant sized leather couch and huge HD television were super nice in the living room.
- 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
