“Patchy at best”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

rooms were clean and neet, however the maintenance levels were down, and the staff reallocated my colleagues room as we arrived at 9.30 pm , despite us ringing in advnace to notify the front desk.
The best thing about the hotel is the good quality reception and service staff. The breakfast food was just fine also. We liked the outlook onto the gardens and the access to transport.
Theparking is a bit of a problem so make sure you check it out with the hotel before you arrive.

The hotel itself is nicely presented, the rooms have all you need. Free Wi-fi was a bonus. Staff were pleasant enough. I am generally a low fuss traveller and like it when the staff leave me alone, in return I do the same.

I ordered room service late one night (after 11pm), and what I recieved was quite nice.

The location is an easy 10 minute walk from the action of the CBD. I generally walked to the CBD and then caught a cab back from whenever I ended up outside the CBD.

There are a few eating options close by, near the QVB markets, which is practically next door. There was a little bit of construction going on around the hotel, none of this bothered me at the time though.

We've stayed at the Radisson on our last 3 visits to Melbourne this year. Previously we stayed at Hilton on the Park, Hilton South Wharf, Intercontinental, Park Hyatt and even Crown Towers (all within the last year). This hotel can stand with the best of them! The location is very easy to get to by car, The car parking (we use valet) is effortless. The welcoming by staff leaves the other hotels for dead! The rooms are older and show sign of wear but are clean and everything works. The breakfast is as good as all others and the eating area is spacious and the set up works, as distinct to a couple of the more highly rated (especially the Intercontinental). The cost is much less!!! The location is perfect for public transport, markets and football at Etihad stadium.

My husband and I travel to Melbourne at least once a year to see family. Lately we have stayed at the Hilton South Wharf, but the price this year was ridiculous. The hotel seems to receive rave reviews, but I could never see why.

So I looked around and found the Radisson on Flagstaff for A$133 pn from hoteltravel.

I rang ahead to book a room with a separate shower and were given an accessible room at the front of the hotel overlooking the Flagstaff Gardens. The room was very comfortable. There was no road noise but there was a little noise from the lift, but not enough to disturb our sleep.

The location of the hotel was extremely convenient. The 55 tram runs past the hotel and the Flagstaff train station is a block south. Queen Victoria markets is a block north. The free City Circle tram also runs past the Flagstaff station.

We found gluten free breakfasts at the markets, near the markets and also at the hotel.

The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.

I have just spent all of my Hilton Honours point on a free night in Shanghai, so will be very likely to book the Radisson for our next visit.

A frequent traveller, I resent paying anything for a lumpy bed and a poor night's sleep. Congratualtions Radisson, it's not large but you've got the cleanest most comfortable bed in Melbourne. Now if only you could ditch the low flow water saver on the shower...... :)

I stayed here five times over about a six month period and was very impressed with the accomodation and service. Each time I stayed in an upper park view room and found the rooms clean,modern and comfortable. Within walking distance to the central CBD, helpful friendly staff and a decent restaurant serving quality food. Rates vary, however I have never paid more than $250 per night which has included a big breakfast.

Our family stayed at Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens in July for a week and found the staff very friendly and professional, the room clean and stylish and the food fantastic. Little things like free Wi-Fi, a selection of free newspapers each morning, great fitness centre/spa and a friendly 'hello' by everyone who worked there - all make for a truly wonderful stay. Thank you to all staff.
