“Parkview St Kilda Road Melbourne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2011

Pros - good access using public transport, quick check in, large roomy room (king bed with a great soft pillow over mattress). Recently remodelled, very tastefull and clean. Best of all an opening window on the 9th floor. Free daily paper downstairs. Also access to alternative eating places just over the road.
Cons - the in house cost for dining was outside of our budget $30 each approx for a main meal .

I have stayed at the ParkView several times and the last time was a significant improvement over previous stays. It looks like they have done a major remodel and the rooms have been siginficantly upgraded. The rooms themselves are pretty decent sized and I really like the way they have designed the bathrooms with an outer foyer with benches to sit and dress or put yourself together. Across from the Melbourne Cricket Field, the St. Kilda location is really convenient with the tram just a couple of blocks away and a taxi stand right in front of the hotel. There is a convenience store nearby along with some small eateries. The only downside to the rooms is the Internet service is not free.

The staff are also extremely helpful - they will sell you a tram daypass, help fix you up with a ride to the airport and the breakfast staff is always very pleasant. The breakfasts there never vary - it's a "full cooked English breakfast" buffet and if you like beans on toast, mushrooms, fried potatoe triangles and the like then you will love this place. I belive you can order other things off the menu for breakfast as well but if your room rate includes brekkies then its full English for you.

The restaurant onsite at the hotel seems very upscale and their prices reflect that opinion. I don't see too many people eating there but they do seem to have regular events at the restaurant and so maybe I just catch them on off days. You are much better off catching the tram downtown and finding some fabulous place to eat, especially in Melbourne's Chinatown. All in all a very nice place to stay and a great alternative to staying in the CBD in terms of price and atmosphere.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the top floor. The view of the cricket grounds and the park are worth it...

My wife and I came over from Perth and spent a few nights.

The hotel has recently been renovated to an extremely high standard. It was very clean and comfortable.

Highly recommend staying here.

The rooms have recently been renovated and this hotel's facilities are great value for money. The beds are the MOST comfortable anywhere - except maybe home. The rooms are smart, clean and have a massive TV for the non-working hours. I am frequently on business trips and the desk is ideal along with plenty of power points and Internet if required. I will continue to come back because it is hard finding a comfortable room for a decent price.

I'm a regular customer at this hotel and my second visit this year - stayed two nights 6th & 7th Aug on way to Wellington NZ. One noticable improvement is the bar stocks half a dozen local Australian Beers - a great selection and one beer promoted as the "Beer of the Month". The bar person advised that this was a response to international visitors beiing keen to sample different beers. I couldn't better that comment!!
