“Value is a fantastic position.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Recently stayed here when I had to be close to the nearby hospital whilst a family member was there. The rooms where clean, with a nice view over the cricket ground, city lights and Albert Park.
Location was great, close to the parks, easy to get to the city, and a walk to the hospital. Loved the pillow menu, beds comfy. All the staff I dealt with were helpful and friendly. Had the up stairs spa room to myself on 2 nights, so nice and relaxing. Lobby could be updated a little, but over all very happy and will be back.

Room Tip: I did have a top floor room, facing the city...very nice view and up high so not much noise

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and have never experienced such comfortable beds. The hotel is clean and welcoming, the rooms are spacious and well maintained. The pillow menu is an added bonus for those with particular tastes. I found the staff to be exceptional and nothing was too difficult to assist with. It would be nice to have a selection of teas at breakfast.

I stayed from April 10-12th in a city view room 516 (beautiful view). Luxuriously comfortable king sized bed (and plenty of choices on their pillow menu). Lovely modern bathroom, spacious shower, bathrobes and plenty of towels provided.
Extremely pleased with the facilities, the cleanliness and the friendly, efficient service. Highly recommend it and will definitely return.

Stayed here for the Grand Prix weekend in early March. Hotel was perfect position for the grand prix, right outside gate 8. The hotel itself has been recently renovated and while the lobby is a little dated, the rooms are gorgeous, large and very comfortable. The buffet breakfast is also fantastic and we ate there one night and the food was great then too.
Would definitely stay here again in a heart beat.

We are regular patrons/clients of the Parkview Hotel in St. Kilda Road, Melbourne. We have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions in the past few years and continue to find it one of the best in Melbourne. Location is perfect. We often stay using our pushbikes and being so close to everything it is the perfect base. Also so close to sporting and restaurants - so many different directions that you can head - so many choices. The staff are always so helpful and accommodating and the view across over Albert Park reserve is another advantage. The walk or ride along St. Kilda Road is always one of the highlights. Generally a great place to stay for a weekend.

Room Tip: Rooms with views over the park are worth the extra money.

Stayed at the Parkview Hotel for two nights in a room with a king bed and "executive trundle". We had a view of Albert Park Lake and Port Phillip Bay - very nice. We were away from St Kilda Road and so were not disturbed by traffic or tram sounds. Great location near the start of Commercial Road and on the first day we walked to Prahran - a 10 minute walk. There is a tram stop close by to take you into the city or to St Kilda Beach and Ackland Street. The room was nice, the beds comfortable, the bathroom modern with a good shower. Very clean. Used the gym on the 9th floor which has modern equipment and a terrific view across Melbourne. Had dinner at the restaurant downstairs and the meal was great. Also had breakfast the next morning and again a very good meal. I would definitely stay there again.

While I enjoyed my stay here, the staff were helpful and friendly, somehow they got my booking wrong, we booked for a king room with a city view however this is not what we recieved, rather we got a double room with no view, and no discount was given for the price paid nor an appology for the mix up. The room we stayed in however was still nice enough, I would recomend for people to stay here however to call and check on their reservations in advance, and not to pay in advance as we did.
