Great apart from where the mirror is located in the room as it is no ideal to do makeup as lighting is not great and need a full length mirror full people to see what they look like

Great location, a lot of food nearby. Tram is just down the road. Pretty accessible and convenient. Clean room, a little small but it's only for me so it's fine by me.

Well located, clean modern hotel room.

Terrible Front Desk

Customer review rating 1.5/5

A Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

I had 3 interactions with the front desk staff and each was terrible. Check in took about 15 minutes of waiting for 2 people in front of me because the lady was so slow; everyone including the guest being served were standing around waiting for her to type things into the system. Again I just wanted to ask about room service. Awfully long wait time of around the same time for not many guests ahead of me. Third time was when I went down at 3pm to ask for new sheets and my room to be made up. Again had to wait for a long time but the guy was friendly and said he would organise it. I returned at 9pm and it was still a mess and was told the housekeeping staff had all gone home and I had to change the sheets myself. I also tried calling the reception via the phone numerous times across my stay but no one ever picked up. Neither did the room service number. The only good thing was the location and cleanliness.

Good Stay

Apart from the fire alarm going off in the middle of the night, It was a lovely stay, the compact room was well equipped and very comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

amazing stay, beautiful room, easy checkin

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Jason G. Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

Great experience end to end. I didn't have a physical credit card with me as all on the handset - the checkin assistant handled this easily using my stored credit card on my profile. The room was great, the late checkout was most appreciated.

The location is great, rooms were clean and modern and beds were comfortable. Some areas for improvement would definitely be management communication. We checked in and were told we could park at the property for $60 but when we went to park in the carpark we were turned away due to the carpark being full. It would have been nice if we were told this when we checked in. We explained this to the concierge staff and they let us park in the waiting bay overnight which we were happy with. At 11:30pm there was a fire alarm, it was concerning that there was a lack of communication from staff to explain to guests where they needed to go. The siren said wait for instructions but after not hearing instructions we used the fire exit stairs ourselves and waited out the front for the fire authorities to okay us to return inside. After checking out, we went downstairs to the concierge desk to retrieve the car keys but there was a sign to collect them from the reception desk. Again, staff at checkout should have asked if we needed to collect our keys. Overall, it was an okay stay but staff need to improve their communication between different areas of the hotel because it did get frustrating. We also heard many other guests discussing the same issues as us.

Good Location in CBD

liambM8108TR TripAdvisor review

Good location in CBD with access a little tight if travelling by car. Rooms on the smaller side and well appointed with most requirements. Bar & restaurant staff friendly & happy to assist and quite a few good options with meals as well.

Brilliant overnight stay

3TEM TripAdvisor review

Ibis Melbourne Central was the perfect location for a last minute overnight stay for me. Check in was prompt and seamless, my room was excellently appointed and sparkling clean. The bed was super comfortable, I had the best night’s sleep. Breakfast was delicious with a wide variety of selections, the hot cooked breakfast was spot on. In particular, the restaurant manager was professional, attentive and ensured the other staff were well trained. This is the first time in twelve months since COVID struck that I have seen this level of service in any restaurant/cafe. I enjoyed every minute. Thank you Ibis Melbourne Central, I look forward to my return.

Dear 3TEM, I appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Ibis Melbourne Central. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely Michelle Bradshaw General Manager

The best Novotel in Melbourne City

Suzanna99 TripAdvisor review

I love this new hotel, this time it was nice and quiet due to low occupancy rate. However there is a problem with noisy heavy slamming room doors which needs to be resolved. The room is just gorgeous and the bed amazing. More attention needs to be paid to breakfast, (that used to be quite something) many items had dried out (pastry) and I wish there could be a little more choice.

Dear Suzanna99, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I appreciate your kind words and feedback relating to the doors and breakfast will certainly be addressed. I hope to have both those issues addressed prior to your next stay. Warm Regards, Michelle Bradshaw General Manager

Great place to stay

Vaughn R TripAdvisor review

A contemporary well presented hotel in the heart of the city. It is well located for different modes of public transport for ease of travel around the city, and has a great range of restaurants around. The staff are welcoming and made my stay very enjoyable. Rooms are warm and fitted out suitably, and I personally enjoy the chromecast feature of the TVs so i can watch my netflix or youtube while I'm getting ready for bed. I've stayed here a number of times and intend on coming back in the future. Great hotel with a decent price point for rooms.

Dear cycurish, Thank you for taking the time to provide such wonderful feedback about your experience at Melbourne Central Hotels. It is always encouraging to hear our guest’s positive words and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Warm regards, Emma Weir Assistant Manager
