“Another pleasant stay !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Perfect for what it is - I've stayed here on many occasions and this was another pleasant stay. The room was clean & so was the bathroom and it smelled fresh when I walked in. The room itself is basic with a comfortable bed & clean towels in the bathroom.
The check in staff were also very friendly & parking is available. The breakfast in the morning is well balanced.

Hotel is very conveniently situated at the Spencer west Spencer street, its just blocks away from the from Southern Cross station. Skybus from the airport stops here in this station. Its also close to Casino, convention center and other local transportation can be taken around the same street. Hotel itself is nothing ordinary, standard rooms are sufficient for 2 people stay and it was nice to have a sofa in the room.
There is hardly any view from the room as it overlooks the courtyard of next building. Continental breakfast comes with Scrambled eggs and red beans; it could be better. In this modern day of communication you need to pay for Internet and even you pay for it the connection is very sluggish. You can't get work done at all. Business center at the 3rd floor has all their equipments outdated, computers are old, windows are never updated so you want to print a new version of PDF, word document or even printing your boarding pass we browser does not allow you to that as its not compatible.
Overall hotel could do some improvements enhance their already good services.

There's two sides to this hotel, as per the title of the review indicates. On the "up" side, the place is very clean, organized, tidy, with excellent desk staff and room maintenance staff. It has a pleasant pool that can be used for splashing around with your kids or to do lap exercise. Rate can fluctuate for the same room on consecutive nights (my rate doubled for one night and then reverted) --so it can be a bargain or steep. On the "down" side, the whole building has no character. The colors are muted browns, there's no "life" or "ambiance" as there's no real style other than functionalism. So... it "does," but it has no distinctive qualities or real flavor from an aesthetic perspective.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view as some rooms have no windows.

This was the 5th or 6th time I stayed at this hotel, which provides decent value for money. The location is insuperable, right across from Spencer St Station, you don't have to worry about transport to your hotel if you arrive by Skybus from the airport. The hotel itself is nice, clean, compact rooms with all the essentials. A word of advice: many, many rooms look into a well between the hotel and the building next door, making the rooms kinda dark and with no view whatsoever. I don't care much about this item, but if you do, make sure you get a room "with a view" (of the train tracks across the street and the stadium beyond them). Making the reservation was a breeze (took less than 5 minutes, thanks to the Front Desk staff - thanks again) and checking in was also flawless. Breakfast is a continental buffet which features baked beans and scrambled eggs as the main hot items. A suggestion I would make to the hotel's GM or F&B manager, is that most people would be happy to pay a few more dollars to get items such as bacon, sausages and cold meats. $12 for brekkie is more the reasonable, and I am positive that most people would not mind to pay more for a little more variety. The little glitches appeared later - many people have reported dirty exhaust vents in the bathroom, which is true: they are very dusty, which is a shame considering the rest of the bathroom is spotless. Then, our remote control was not working properly and an electric contact was faulty as well. We reported this to Reception as soon as we could, hoping the problems would be solved. Unfortunately that did not happen at all, and to be honest, we felt embarrassed to have to ask for something more than once! So all in all, this is a good choice of accommodation for many reasons: decent price, good location, no fuss place, I just hope that those little details are amended to make it a better place to stay!

Got a great deal $99. Per night with breakfast city view. Was happy with the room and breakfast was substantial. Room was clean enough room for two . May need to change coffee sachets they were hard to open. Hotel is close to free tram and buying a mykie card makes traveling around town easy.

I travel to Melbourne regularly for the football and races. The Best Western Atlantis Hotel is my hotel of choice because I fly in and Skybus to Southern Cross Station... then walk across the road and I am at my hotel... I walk to the nearby Coles supermarket... Etihad Stadium is across the road. Crown is a 10 minute walk, Bourke Street Mall is 15 minute walk and the Queen Victoria markets less than 10 minute walk... not to mention the food and shopping at Southern Cross Station...

The room is basic but clean and comfortable... not luxurious but exactly what you pay for and offers a good night sleep... continental breakfast is good

Room Tip: The Hotel offers a continental breakfast only... if you want a cooked breakfast then walk down to th...
