“nice hotel but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2011

we stayed at hotel Lindrum recently as we wanted a good hotel within walking distance to the MCG and everywhere else was fully booked. The hotel is quite nice, boutique style, but realistically it is very overpriced. Whilst the staff were efficient we did not find them particually inviting. In fact the atmosphere was all a bit cold. If you can get a good budget deal I would recommend but don't pay the standard rate here - I wished we had paid less and walked further for our accommodation.

We stayed for 3 nights in room 311 at an average cost of 235 AUD. The location is perfect, right in the city center. We loved the architecture of the building and the fact that our room was spacious with high ceiling. The bed was amazingly comfortable: king size, great pillows and nice sheets. We really loved the service provided by the staff, very professional and always looking to improve your experience. The ground floor area – reception desk, restaurant, bar - was very lively.

On a les positive note, our room had absolutely no views of the city – our window was facing a parking lot. The wired internet connection was very slow.

Overall, a very good option for a great hotel at a reasonable price.

Cool looking brick building just down the road from fed square. Staff were excellent. Room was spacious and elegant, though lacked a bit of ambient light as view was of wall but it is a city! Hotel facilities great, little bar downstairs and billards table, also ipads to borrow from reception.
Excellant location, few minutes to flinders street and fed square, china town a few minutes in the other direction. Also free toursit tram stops right outside if you are feeling lazy. Would def stay here again!

Since reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, I opted for a junior suite in order to get a room with more light / away from facing a car-park. Given the benefit of hindsight I think i would have been better off staying in a different hotel. The junior suite was very junior, more infant really - I would say it was a standard room by most hotel benchmarks. the bathroom was very average, with a showerhead over bath. The staff were friendly enough and helpful - but they were terribly scruffy looking and the overall impression of the lobby was very average, not something I would expect from paying $330 AUD a night. If you're looking for luxury, I don't think this is really the right hotel for you. The location of the hotel was very good for restaurants and the city centre.

While visiting our son in school in Melbourne, stayed there over a week
DesignNZ travel recommended, and we were no disappointed
Perfect location on Flinders St.- close to the action, but not too close
Staff helped us innumerable ways, always with patience and competence
I'd go back in a minute

really enjoyed our stay at the Lindrum, surpised that it is so quiet in the room as quite a busy road. We walked down to Rod Laver Arena for a show and in the morning had a fantastic breakfast next door at the Little Press cafe (The Press Club)
the location is fantastic, its stylish and comfortable and the reception staff were lovely
nice bar for a drink prior to going out or waiting for others too. We have stayed a couple of times and recommend highly

My partner and I spent 3 nights at the Hotel Lindrum last week having read the comments made here. The hotel is located close to Treasury gardens and is only a very short walk to Flinders St station and beautiful Collins St and access to public transport is nearby. From the moment that we were greeted at reception on our arrival to our departure the service and attendance provided by the hotel staff was excellent - professional and friendly. The superior room which we occupied was elegant, quiet and spacious. Unfortunately we didn't eat in the Felt restaurant due to our own mistake of deciding to do so on the Sunday night when it is closed. However we did have room service on 3 occasions and the food each time was excellent - I can definitely recommend the Walter Lindrum burger. Snooker table is a great bonus. We will definitely stay again.
