“Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Such a handy spot for the hotel - right in the heart of the city; and walking distance to Flinders Street Station, Fed Square, and pretty much every tram.

The pull-up bay for the valet parking always has space, and is well-attended. It's right out front. The staff changed the station on our car radio which was odd, though..

Lift lobby undergoing renovations when we went (Feb 2013), but it didn't seem to make any difference. Strong smell of chlorine from the indoor pool throughout the common areas, but thia didn't seem to be an issue in the room (in saying that, our room was ages away from the lift..). Staff also helpful, and offered baggage storage for the day after checkout.

Great location to explore the city streets and lanes to find a cafe fror brekky.
Rooms are spacious and comfy for one with excellent large work area.
Price was a bit exxy as over $200 per night but I guess its what you pay for city centre.

I recently stayed here with my friend for a girls weekend and we both would not hesitate to stay here again.The novotel is perfectly located in the shopping district and within reach of trams etc.The rooms(we had two double beds) were clean ,the beds comfortable and supplied with all you need.The staff were friendly and welcoming and the breakfast(that was included in our rate) was excellent...fresh and plenty to choose from.I would definately recommend the Novotel and plan to return soon.

I stayed here in July 2011 (A fair while ago now) for one night. I had previously been staying at another Melbourne Hotel but due to a flight schedule mixup booked a night at the Novotel on Collins.

It's by no means a bad hotel, but I did expect a little more. From what I remember the staff were helpful but I found the decor of the room to be old and the bed uncomfortable. The bathroom looked old too and there was grime in certain spots.

The location is amazing and the hotel is close to everything which was a big big plus

Again, not a bad hotel, but not the best. I'd give it probably a 2.5/5

This hotel is well located within the main shopping precinct and also close to a wide range of restaurants. If you are in Melbourne for the theatres then most are within easy walking distance. This hotel provided a good location for a weekend break with no need to have a car.

I am a frequent stayer at the Novotel on Collins St and think it is an excellent hotel, in both facilities and location. This stay, I stayed in a Premier room on the 11th floor. The room is exceptionally large and contained top quality utilities and fittings. The bed is a king size and bathroom is very well laid out. The buffet breakfast would have to be one of the best in Melbourne. The location of the hotel is a 5 minute walk from shopping, transport, Federation Square and many restaurants and cafes.
