Ibis Styles Melbourne, The Victoria Hotel
Ranked #90 of 160 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed February 21, 2013

If you wish to have a quiet time at your hotel, you should consider another hotel. The Victoria Hotel is undergoing continuous renovations and there is lots of loud noise (drilling of walls, etc) during the day, including Saturdays and Sundays.

Stayed: January 2013, traveled on business

have stayed at the Victoria at random times over the past 15 years. I have seen much improvement and this time it exceeded my expectations.

The aquarium at reception is such a brilliant idea. You don’t mind waiting in a queue as you can watch the lovely fishes floating by. Excellent marketing tool to keep guests from being annoyed.

I had a newly painted room and I could see renovations being conducted in stages in the other blocks. The room was well presented with a flat screen tv and reading materials about the history of the hotel.

For a 3 star hotel, the breakfast was outstanding. There were 2 choices of eggs, Chinese congee and fried rice for the Asian diner and a very decent buffet of hot food, fruits, pastries, cereals and breads. And the best of all it had a machine that made cappuccino, latte, hot choc, etc. That made my mornings.

The pool and gym was under renovations so I cannot comment on it.

I though the staff was fantastic. The location is unbeatable.

My only complaint is that there is no free wi-fi.

I did not book in as an Accor member but when I checked out and sort of mentioned that I had membership, I was given some complimetary luggage tags. Nothing beats a happy guest than some freebies.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room.

I stay at this hotel on a regular basis and love it but a major building next door to the hotel has been removed and construction has started for a new building. WARNING: construction noise can be heard all night(yes! ALL NIGHT).if you are a light sleeper do not stay at this hotel until the work is completed(I would say by the end of 2013).YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!i will come back to this hotel after the construction has been finished because its a great hotel.

I stayed here with 2 of my friends and it was just what we needed. The location was great, it was clean and comfortable. Town Hall is around the corner from it (literally), the trams are easily accessible, Federation square is maybe 500 metres down the road (10min walk). Close to great restaurants (affordable and decent). The staff are friendly, room was serviced everyday we were there (only there for 2 nights.) The rooms are on the small side, but if you're looking at being out and about everyday then this is a great choice! Would recommend to people for that weekend away!

This hotel only allocates 4 rooms to Accor members, out of 360. End up paying because so few rooms allocated despite $300 membership. With tens of thousands of people coming to Melbourne each week, chances of getting he of those four rooms is very minimal, even lower for a Friday or Saturday.

A comfortable and convenient hotel with all the basic requirements. The Hotel has been refurbished since our last stay and the rooms are quiet and very adequate for our needs.
Buffet breakfast , which was included in the rate was well presented.

We stayed for 1 night only going to a concert.
The location was great the room was spotlessly clean and well equipped.
The staff and parking attendant were friendly and we also enjoyed our breakfast next door.
Would not hesitate to stay here again.
