An arty hotel with trendy designer rooms that only delivers a 3 star service and doesnt quite deliver the basics. Though the rooms are nice, with lots of drawers, there is no luggage rack or anywhere to put cases. The deluxe studio has a large sofa - facing the bed and sideways on to the tv its most practical use...

It's a new hotel with gorgeous deco. The service is great and staff are super nice and professional. I have to mention the bed. Oh gosh the bed!! You'll love your sleeps here I promise. Location is very good, tram and train stations are just minutes of walks away. Chapel St is full of boutiques, if you want big brands...

I basically walk to everything from this hotel everything is within a radius of 10 to 15 minutes walk. The accommodations themselves, the rooms are a little small but...

Staying in Chapel Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with specialty stores selling just about everything. The famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor cater to high-end designer labels and exclusive boutiques. The community flocks to Prahran’s organic markets as a Saturday ritual, while art and film students leaf through vinyl LPs on Greville Street. The gay community also has a strong presence here. Prahran’s heritage buildings like the Reads Emporium and Prahan arcade offer a grand sense of scale and history. No matter your interest, come feel the pulse of one of Melbourne’s most loved precincts.
