We stayed on the sixth floor of the ten story hotel in a room overlooking Flinders Lane as a member of the Accor Vacation Club. Despite being in the heart of Melbourne we found it to be very quiet. The room was very modern with very nice bathroom and a workable kitchen although missing an oven. We found the staff to be very helpful. A bar is open in the evenings at the back of the building on the ground floor which has a great free coffee machine.
There is no restaurant, however a Coles supermarket is just around the corner along with a vast supply of eateries from KFC and Mexican to Pizza and the more top-of-the-line restaurants if you want to splash out a bit more cash.
To get your bearings of Melbourne, catch the number 35 tram from Flinders Street one block away (outside the station). It does a loop of the City Centre and you can get on or off at your leisure.
- 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
