Overview

Whether staying for business or leisure, The Victoria Hotel is the obvious choice when looking for contemporary accommodation in Melbourne. Idyllically located next to Melbourne Town Hall and minutes from the iconic Flinders Street Station and Federation Square, this historic hotel in Melbourne is within close walking distance to the city’s must-see attractions.

The Victoria Hotel is conveniently situated in the Free Tram Zone and offers easy access to Southbank and the city’s many galleries and museums, as well as the vibrant restaurant, café and bar scene. Shopaholics are in prime position to explore the Collins Street boutiques, Bourke Street Shopping Mall and Chinatown alleys. And for those looking for a night out, the Little Collins Street locale is the perfect base to take on the Melbourne’s lively East End theatre district, Crown Casino and famous sporting arenas.

Originally known as the Victoria Coffee Palace, The Victoria Hotel was established in 1880 as a sober alternative to the rowdy hotels with onsite pubs. One of the first hotels to be built in Melbourne, the property has evolved from a 19th century coffee house to luxury accommodation in the 20’s and 30’s, along the way witnessing war, prohibition and an Olympic Games, to become one of the city’s true landmarks.

With 370 spacious heritage rooms, The Victoria Hotel offers contemporary accommodation within what is arguably Australia’s most popular city. With a range of configurations available, each guest room is beautifully appointed with stylish furnishings and all the essential amenities and services the modern traveller needs to be comfortable and to stay connected.

Number of floors:   8.  Number of rooms:   370.

    Very good

    It wasn't very easy to find my room, the corridors twist and turn too much.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The location, the location, the location. Perfectly located in the city center and near to everything especially that the transportation infrastructure of Melbourne is star-shaped.

    The room was very small. I shortened my stay and move to a self-contained appartment (with kitchen-ware) which is more suitable for a family staying for more than one week. The reception need to be renovated and there is a plan for that.

    Fabulous

    Hotel was very central to theatre, shopping, transport

    Fabulous

    The location in the centre of Melbourne

    The standard room I booked was terrible,one star at best. I complained and was offered an upgrade at extra cost. After inspection I agreed as it was like a completely different hotel. The upgrade cost me $20.00 AUS / night after negotiation.Well worth it!

    the location

    Bed was terrible, shower either too hot or too cold. Interior of hotel was depressing. Carpet was filthy, with silver fish running around. The whole place was smelly.

    Lobby and Restaurant are shabby and need refurbishment

    Fabulous

    The feather pillows,the location,the early check in and late check out at no extra cost and a room upgrade.

    Fabulous

    Room prepared well & cleaned imaculatly, so for that reason alone I enjoyed the stay. Parking also was a big plus for us as we were going inter state from there.

    The only problem was that some one had locked the safe after they left & we could not use it. This was very minor & the staff said they would fix promptly. The only other complaint was the absolute rudness of a young person who promptly turned the TV over that we had moved to to finish watching the replay of the Golf we were watching & when queried did not give a stuff so we left the bar & went to our room. It should only be changed by staff after first checking.

    Superb

    We thought it was great value as wepaid $315 for 2 for 3 nights we weren't expectng much as we were basically sleeping there. But we were pleasantly surprised.Staff were helpful in reception and everything worked in our room.

    Not real good on basic cocktails!!!

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The foyer area is most attractive and the hotel is centrally located.

    The room was a disappointment after the elegance of the foyer. It was a "standard" room, and though it had all the facilities, the window was old-looking and a view only of a wall.

    Exceptional

    Your pianist, Natalie, was wonderful, she has an amazing talent.We sat for 1.5hrs. just listening to her and also sang along. We also spoke to her the next morning, she was very interesting. Keep her, she is a gem!

    Superb

    Great location and on site parking just two doors down from the hotel the reception area is very dated but clean. I had a refurbished room which was nice and modern comfortable and clean with a nice new bathroom. I didn't use the hotel bar or restaurant so I can't comment on these. Great value for money hotel for the location.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The best thing about the hotel is location. You can walk to just about everything! And that compensates for the quality of the hotel which was more 'budget' than 'chic'... Also we were pleased with room service. The rooms were cleaned and made fresh every day.

    The hotel could do with a bit of new painting and renovations.
