“Good location - Good Rooms - Poor car access”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Stayed at Novotel on Collins street in April 2013. Booked into the hotel as we thought that it would be ideally located and weren’t disappointed, The hotel is part of the Australia on Collins street Mall but is discretely located to the side of the mall. Access into the Mall was down a discrete spiral staircase, the mall offered good shops and eateries. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable but just a touch on the small side, The buffet breakfast was well worth the money with the only gripe being the lack of good coffee. The only complaint about the whole stay was with the valet parking, at the beginning of the stay we had to unload our vehicle in the middle of the road causing traffic to bank back a kilometre, then after waiting 20 minutes for our bags to come up to the room, decided to return back down the reception and pick them up ourselves. Also took 20 minutes to retrieve the car when we left. Also worth noting is that the Valet Parking which is $35.00 per night. I would stay there again, however next time around I will probably catch a taxi, in the end we didn’t need the rental car as the public transport especially the trams were way better.

I stayed at Novotel on Collins because it is very central.
Check-in was a breeze and the front office staff very helpful and friendly.
First timers might find, with Reception several floors up, that check-in is a bit confusing as you have to take one lift to get to Reception and another to your room.
Public transport (trams) go past the front door and some of the best shops are either next door or in Bourke Street, one block away.
I went to the football at the MCG which is my reason for the stay.
The room was excellent and the bed very comfortable.
Only complaint, lifts very noisy.

The service we received at the Novotel was second to none. The staff were polite and helpful and very professional in the way they went about their work.
The rooms were clean, well presented and comfortable. The location of the hotel was fantastic for shopping and seeing popular attractions in the city and suburbs of Melbourne.
As an added bonus the staff were very helpful in arranging tours from the hotel or providing information on up to date attractions in town.

This hotel is better than some 5 Star Hotels I've stayed at. The staff are so friendly and helpfull. The room was spacious and well decorated. Buffet breakfast was included with the rate and was delicious - plenty of everything imaginable! Location is excellent - 2 short walkways to Bourke St Mall where shopping is great, taxi to the Zoo was only $18 ($55 taxi ride from the airport), walking distance to the Aquarium and Flinders Street Station. Room service was soooo delicious and the meals were huge. Very impressed and will be back!!!!

What a great hotel. We booked 2 nights when Accor had a sale on so prices were cheap. This hotel is in a brilliant location, minutes from everything. Rooms were clean and huge. Staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend this hotel for a long weekend getaway.

Room Tip: We booked a superior queen room and it was huge !!!!

Arrived early for our check in, and on the off chance our room was available we asked if we could check in and to our surprise were advised we could. Great start. Room was clean and tidy. During our three night stay we encountered nothing but friendly helpful staff. The hotel is in a great location to the CBD area and in particluar "The Block". Trams outside as well as taxis. Fab place to stay and we will be back.

Room Tip: Spend that little bit extra and have an even better stay.
