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.
Dear John T, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Melbourne Flinders Lane. It is so good to hear from Accor Vacation Club members enjoying their vacations in these great apartments.
We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
We spent three nights here in a double apartment with our adult children. We all absolutely loved it. The decore and furnishings were beautiful. It had all the modern conveniences including a great gourmet kitchen and dining area. The location of this hotel is just perfect, within walking distance to retail outlets, cafes, restaurants, information centre and trams. Can't wait to go back again. Would highly recommend this hotel.
Dear skyview431, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Melbourne Flinders Lane. We are delighted to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay in these wonderful apartments. I cant think of a better location for exploring all that Melbourne has to offer. Again, we thank you for your review and recommendation.
Right in the hub of the lane ways of Melbourne's CBD is a treasure of hideaway. We stayed in a one bedroom Apartment on the 9th floor, beautifully decorated in lush fabrics and gorgeous furniture, there was a little foyer that opened onto a dining room with a fully kitted out little kitchen with banquette seating. Lounge area had a flat screen tele and a writting desk again beautifully appointed with leather and carpets and lush window treatments. But the killer was the bedroom with the ceiling high bed head and king size bed, another flat screen tele and an adjoining dressing room and large ensuite. Reception staff were charming and called up and inquired as to our happiness with the apt ( how nice?) we were also allowed early checkin ( 10.00 am... again how nice?) We are absolutely going to be coming back, loved it! Why would you settle on a room if you can have all this?
