“Good value, excellent position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Family of five stayed at the Novotel for six nights over the australian open. Superb position for everything, the tennis, shopping, food, restaurants. The kids had a large suite and we had a new room over looking Australia on Collins (shopping centre). Bathrooms good and clean, beds comfortable and spacious with good facilities and seating. Didn't use hotel restaurants, no need as so close to coffee shops etc. pool tiny and gym fairly small but adequate. Would highly recommend. We moved to Sofitel for the remainder of our holiday due to availability, and although the Sofitel might have a few more luxuries, for price the Novotel is much better value for money and is a more central position. Great for families.

Forget car hire, the Novotel is just a block from Flinders St Station. Tram stops and taxi ranks are conveniently located out the front on Collins St. A supermarket and bottleshop are within walking distance too. There's room in the mini-bar to store your own drinks.
The hotel is part of the Australia on Collins shopping centre and very close to the Bourke St Mall. In terms of facilities, the bar and restaurant are both very good, with great service. The pool and gym are small but adequate; the children thoroughly enjoyed the pool.
I have stayed as an individual in years past and now with my family and would certainly consider staying there again. At the moment we can book a standard room (2 queen beds) but will have to hire a bigger room as the children get older which will add to the expense - as in any hotel really.
There was also free internet in the lobby if you wanted to quickly access email or look up something.

Service is great and hotel staff is accommodating. The location is great since it's centrality allows you good foot access to many of the destinations you'd want to visit in the city. Internet is quite limited so be ready to line up with just a few stations available, it's supposed to be quite expensive in the city generally.
