“Overnight stay”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Melbourne Parkview Hotel. The room's presentation was excellent and the breakfast was superb. We have already stayed at the Parkview several times and look forward to returning in the near future.

We spent 2 nights here on their internet package. Room was very nice, staff friendly and efficient, buffet breakfast excellent, and easy parking in basement. Only downside was noise from garbage truck in Queens Lane at 6am (only lasted 5 mins).

We chose this hotel after reading all the great reviews. On arrival we were told the basement lift was broken, but fortunately they would offer valet parking which was nice.
When we got in one of the lifts to go to our room we worked out why one lift was broken... I think they were made in the 1850's! Walking to our room we saw dead bugs in the hallway lights, which really isn't nice.
The room was okay and bed very comfortable. The tissue box was covered in dust though, and the doors all squeaked when you moved them. The air conditioner wasn't working properly and we had to call maintenance to repair it.
The worst part was that at 7am every morning of our 3 night stay, we were woken by what sounded liked a roller coaster on top of our room. This 'sound' happened every 30 seconds for about 30-45 minutes before stopping, and we could go back to sleep. Also every time someone on the level opened and closed their front door, the echo and shudder came straight into the room and again woke you up. Not very relaxing. When I spoke to the manager about the noise he claimed it was the garbage trucks next door. I explained it was a noise within the hotel, where he shrugged it off.
The buffet breakfast was okay, but nothing special. The coffee pots were constantly empty, and when there was coffee there were no cups to put your coffee in. There was minimal cutely and I ended up having to eat my toast with a fork and spoon. The free newspapers were great.
Positives;
- Bed
- Free newspapers
- Cheap

Negatives;
- NOISY!!!!
- Clearly a very old building.
- NOISY!!!!

Overall, we wouldn't stay here again. Many other hotels within Melbourne to consider.

We spent a great time in Melbourne Parkview hotel. Service is quite well and room is very clean. I asked for high floor room and you can see the nice view from the window. I will def recommend the hotel and looking forward to staying next time.

Room Tip: High floor room is with quite good view

I spent 3 nights their recently whilst in Melbourne for business. A good clean typical business hotel. Not much character but served the purpose and was reasonable. Disappointing that the concierge didn't have much knowledge about Melbourne for those over 25 but had a good time anyway.

Room Tip: Up high with a view and not near the lift as some guests noisy late at night, particularly on weeken...

My wife and I try to visit Melbourne as often as we can from country Victoria. We have found some inner city motels don't provide the same level of service or peace and quiet that you get from a stay at the Parkview. The staff are always happy to assist whether it is an in room massage or a Mykey pass to get around on public transport. The Parkview is ideally located a short taxi ride from the CBD and is very competitive with great package deals. The even have a free CBD transfer service.
Highly recommend and always do.
