It's easy to miss The Sebel in Flinders Lane because it's tucked away along a one-way street, with large buildings folding in on either side. Once you realise where it is, use the valet parking, stay a night or two and put your walking shoes on. That doesn't mean the hotel is a long way from anywhere, quite the opposite. You will realise that it's close to everything so a car isn't needed. The hotel rooms are fresh, but predominantly this is an apartment style residence. There is a lot to like in this oasis.

recently stayed 7 days at this property. We were very glad to have picked this property. It is a fairly high class apartment/hotel. Our one bedroom apartment was very classy with the furniture and furnishings. Very large and spacious, has 2 flat screen tv sets. Kitchen is adequately furnished and the bathroom is very luxurious. Is centrally located to many very nice restaurants, shops etc. and the tram stop and train station just one block away. We were very impressed by the courteous and helpful staff. 30 minutes free wifi per day in the lobby area or plenty of close by cafes providing free wifi including McDonalds. Would definitely stay here again if I have the chance.

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
