The Hotel Windsor is still the grand old lady of Melbourne .. an absolute delight and situated beside lots of good parkland for walks and beside some utterly wonderful cafes for dinner and breakfast. The staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful and their car valet service is impeccable. Other cities do have hotels based on earlier, elegant times, but unfortunately...

Despite being a lovely old grand hotel the décor inside can feel a bit more 1990s. Tired carpets, some poor furniture/paint schemes, old fridges, TV & aircon, as well as noises from the hot water system throughout the night give the hotel a less than luxurious feel. Staff were ok, if a little stand offish. Nothing about the room, décor,...

I visited Melbourne for business. The Windsor is a great location with convenient access to transport and restaurants / bars. It has heaps of old world charm and friendliness. Cricketer's Bar is also great for a quiet and refreshing ale at the end of the day

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance.
