“We Loved It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

First time we stayed at the Parkview as we usually stay in the city. We stayed for four nights and the location was perfect. It was only a pleasant 30 minute walk into the city and a 10 minute tram ride back after, the tram stop was more or less right outside the Parkview. The room we had was a city view (great view) and was very spacious. The only cons were not enough drawer space and bathroom light not bright enough. Staff were excellent, we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view.

My wife and I have stayed here on numerous occasions. It has always been a great experience, Close to everything, and an easy walk into the city or by tram which runs along St Kilda Road. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing time, close to the CBD, breakfast is excellent.

We booked in advance with booking.com everything went extremely well the bed was supurb. The ability to park on the premise was very convenient and allowed us to time our departure with the spirit of Tasmania.

Great hotel, great staff. They have thought of nearly everything.

While the building itself is dated, they have renovated where they needed to and avoided frivolous updates. The staff are great, everything you need is there and the pancake maker and orange juice squeezer in the breakfast bar are fantastic!

I purchased a "Wot Hotel" on Wotif and was pleasantly surprised with the Parkview Hotel - the rooms are really spacious and the staff very friendly. Thanks to Sarah for re-arranging my apartment to fit my requirements and lovely to be welcomed by Grace. The property is quiet, spacious, clean and comfortable. The shower head is fantastic ensuring a decent shower spray!
I will definitely stay again. Television station selection great. Everything was more than expected.

As per usual, had an awesome time at Parkview, we were upgraded to a city view room, breakfast and parking was included for a very reasonable price. As long as they keep up this kind of service, we wont be staying at any other Hotel in Melbourne!!!

We booked this hotel through TravelZoo and generally it lived up to our expectations. Our room was large but it was disappointing to find rather small single beds in the room. One of the beds was uncomfortable and maybe the mattress should be replaced.

The bathroom was excellent with good supplies of toiletries. Water pressure was also excellent. Tea and coffee was provided in the room.

Breakfast was probably the best thing about this hotel. Great variety to cater for all tastes. Car parking was included in our rate. The location on St Kilda Road was a real plus. Trams about 200 meters.

Room Tip: If you require specific room e.g. queen room make sure you specify that is what you want.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am most concerned to read that your bed was not comfortable and I suspect that there may have been a fault with the bed that may not have been identified. I certainly apologise for this. It appears you enjoyed your stay and I hope to welcome you back in the near future.
