“Comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Lovely spot, close to the city and very comfortable and quiet. I asked for a room well away from the elevator and got a room right on the end of floor five facing the park. It was quiet and sunny. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was so easy to walk to the tram station and to get into and out of the city from here. I would highly recommend this hotel for service, comfort and value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the elevator!

I stayed at the Parkview Hotel for 5 nights for a business trip, and overall it was a great experience. The room was clean and very spacious, the bed was extremely comfortable... making it hard to get up in the morning!

Room service was very average, however I mentioned that I was unhappy with my meal and the meal was fully refunded. Breakfast was very nice, great selection of food at the buffet.

First trip to Aus for business and this hotel has a great locations for jumping on the trams to get to various locations. The rom was good and kept very clean, the maid even arranged my things in the bathroom, which was a nice touch. the bed was comfy though so got a good sleep while there.

The food in the restaurant was good but not outstanding, personally just go over the road to the places outside better options and they were happy to serve us one evening at almost 10pm.

Niggle.

Why can they not make the wifi free in the hotel, it soes seem a little strange to be charged for it. Though I did find if you connect in the free area then it can also work for a while in the room.

Quite surprised when I checked in that I had to pay for all the nights upfront.

Plus.

Right next to Albert Park for getting out and running if so inclined. There is a gym at the top though it did get very warm in there.

Need to be aware of what you are booking if you do it on line through wotif. Their site states guest room has double bed, decided to ring hotel direct to ask if double bed in guest room? and told no they are king beds and they could not match the wotif price so booked 2 rooms through wotif. On arrival was asked if I was aware that booking online that rooms had double beds, said no I was of the understanding after ringing the hotel first that guest room beding was king. Thankfully the hotel was not full and both rooms were upgraded to deluxe. Nice spacious rooms good decor, quiet, good location for easy tram access into CBD. Not a grand view but booked on room price. $10 onsite parking a bit tight but be aware you can park in the reserved parking bays on weekends which eases concerns. 11 o'clock check out also good as is IGA & 7/11 stores nearby. You also need to be aware that your minibar fridge is locked so if you need to keep things cool arrange at desk for it to be opened. These things are not explained at sign in times and they should be. A nice stay all the same.

Perfectly situated in St Kilda Rd with a plethora of trams traveling to and from the city. Great rooms lots of space and an excellent restaurant. wonderful breakfast. The gym has the best view over the park and city. A brisk 45min walk into the city. I will definitely stay there again

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 9th floor

I was in Park view hotel for only two days but I have really enjoyed the overall stay.The people there are really nice and the bedrooms were so amazing that the moment I stepped in the room I was so amazed.It has a TV which can give you to be able to watch Nickelodeon and other channel like soccer and more.The breakfast was delicious and I liked playing with my friends in the breakfast area alot.The cleanliness and everything was perfect from my opinion, and I would really recommend to pick that hotel if somebody goes to that specific place which is called Melbourne :)

I stayed here for 3 nights during the Australian Open. The hotel is approx 10 minutes by tram/5 mins in a taxi to Southbank. The staff are friendly and always available to you should you have any questions about the area. The tram stop is 100m from the front door with every tram heading into the city, so you only have to wait a couple of minutes for your ride. Tram tickets can be bought from the hotel's from desk (and charged to your room) so it saves you having to worry about carrying change. The hotel had been totally refurbished inside. The rooms are well appointed with a flat screen tv and comfy bed. Id stay here again if visiting Melbourne as its a bit cheaper than the CBD hotels. St Kilda is also only a quick 10 minute tram ride.
This hotel would also be your number 1 choice if going to the Grand Prix, you can walk to Albert Park.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the cricket oval - best for view of city
