“Great Location”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

The hotel was perfect for our needs being close to all the inner city shopping, restaurants - easy walking distance to the MCG (15 minutes) etc. Staff were very welcoming across all areas. Special mention to JD at the bar. We had a Premium Room which was excellent - spacious, comfortable and had everything you needed with a view overlooking the inside of the shopping centre which was quite unique. Naturally I got the taxi driver from the airport who had no idea where it was but it seems if you say opposite Tiffanys they seem to know. Concierge desk was very helpful as well. Overall, I can t say enough about how much this hotel lives up to expectations.

We're currently staying here for four days on a romantic short break and I'm glad I chose Novotel on Collins. To say it's conveniently located would be an understatement. In the first two days that we have been here, we used the trams outside the hotel on multiple occasions to go to all parts of Melbourne (ie. DFO SouthWharf, South Melbourne, Chapel Street, Bridge Road, Fitzroy).
We bought a local travel card called Myki and only spent $12 for the two days we've been using public transport.

The hotel itself is attached to a shopping centre and you can literally walk anywhere in the CBD in a matter of minutes. If not, just catch a tram. I downloaded the tram network map onto my iPad so it was really easy to work out which one to take to go somewhere specific.

Restaurants are aplenty and cater for all tastes and budgets. Elizabeth Street and Swanton Street are abuzz at almost all hours so you'll find something to buy or eat easily.

The staff at the hotel from the concierge to the reception staff have been outstanding and I must commend them on such high quality customer service. We noticed, havng stayed at a few Accor hotels in the past few months, that customer service has been consistently high standard so we must mention it here.

We were given an upgraded room on the 9th floor and while the view isn't great, the room was very spacious and the lounge chair and sofa they have add a touch of luxury to the room. We can't hear any noise from outside at all despite being in the centre of a very busy CBD. It's amazing.
The only negative is the lack of access to inhouse movies and cable TV channels as they're installing a new audi visual system at the moment. However, we didn't come to Melbourne to watch TV and there're other things to do that are more enjoyable anyway.

The gym and pool/spa are located conveniently across the shopping centre atrium so you're overloooking it from above. It's hard to explain but it's a nice layout and well equipped gym. Imagine the shopping centre sharing the first three floors with the hotel and the rest of the building is made up of rooms and 'sits' above the shopping centre.

There is free internet access on the reception floor courtesy of 3 iMacs near the lifts. A nice touch allowing guests to check their emails or surf the net without having to pay for it.

We're having a great time in Melbourne and this hotel has made it that extra special. Tomorrow night, we're going to the theatres and it's 200m from the hotel! What more can you ask for?

Although we live in Melbourne we treated the kids to a night in the city at the Novotel for the last few days of the school holidays. Staff were amazingly welcoming, gave us early checkin and always had a smile. Room was standard twin (two double beds) but immaculately clean and new decor looks nice. Overlooked Collins Street but we were not bothered by any noise. Loved the pool (3 visits in less than 24 hours) and had a very enjoyable buffet breakfast (especially loved the $20 birthday offer!). Location cannot be faulted - walked to the Aquarium and Fed Square and tram outside the door up to Brunswick Street for dinner. I would commend to anyone coming for a visit to Melbourne and may just make this a regular treat for the family.

Room Tip: If traveling with kids go for a room on the 7th floor which is the same floor as the pool - saves wa...
