Stayed here during the Anzac long weekend. This apartment style hotel is beautifully furnished with French décor throughout. We even received a courtesy phone call on the day as we were waiting for our flight out from Perth to check our arrival time! Check-in and check-out was swift and hassle free.
Our apartment was located on the 3rd floor, facing Flinders Lane. There is a well equipped kitchenette, lounge room with flat screen TV, couch, writing desk and chair and a balcony looking out onto Flinders Lane. The bedroom also has glas sliding door overlooking Flinders Lane. But there are two doors to get through, so it is absolutely quiet and peaceful once closed. There is a king size bed, flat screen TV, wardrobe and small open shelf cupboard with two drawers. There is an open space here for your luggage. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The bathroom holds a large shower with rain shower head and hand held shower rose; single vanity/ sink and WC. I am curious what they treat their shower screen as after 4 days of using the shower, the glass screen still looks clean and streak free!
There is a lounge downstairs with very comfortable seats and coffee machine for guests.The apartment very close to Flinders Street Train station. It is within walking distance to cafes/ restaurants on Degraves Street and Hardware Lane. The only cons are the cost per night, it is not serviced (and I do love fresh clean bath towels :). But overall an excellent stay.
- 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
