Editorial review:

This large building of The Grand Hotel Melbourne Managed By Sofitel once housed the Victorian Railways administrative offices during rail’s heyday. The rooms were once offices and have retained their high ceilings with loft-styled mezzanines. Room sizes vary and are furnished without a lot of pretense. This is not the ideal location for shopping, but its location is only a short tram ride from shopping and restaurants.

Overview

Ideally located by Flagstaff underground station, Grand Hotel Melbourne Mgallery By Sofitel offers fast access to Rod Laver Arena, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and MCG Melbourne and features an indoor heated pool and a library. Built in 1893, the hotel is a combination of Victorian architecture and contemporary facilities.

The property is about 10 minutes' walk of Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Southbank and Etihad Stadium. The city center lies within 4 km from the venue.

This hotel is placed in Docklands district, known for a museum and a tower.

Grand Hotel Melbourne Mgallery By Sofitel is within a 20-minute drive to Essendon airport.

                position was great. the room was excellent the bed very comfortable. It had an old world charm but also enjoyed the pool.

                It can be a long walk to the room!

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                Location is excellent

                No free coffee in rooms - Pod Coffee $3.50 Water 7.00 come on would it break you to add a free biscuit and coffee sachet in the room, maybe a complimentary bottle of water. 5star afterall - No TV in upstairs bedroom, room only rudimenary clean make bed empty garbage. Coffee table not moved back square from previous night. Dining facility caters for 20 at breakfast etc very small and cramped. Dont call it a library call it a wall with books!!! not that you could use it anyway only 4 lounges.

              • Couple
                10.0

                Great great sized rooms and in a great location to everything.

                The only thing I could say was that we thought we would get a room with a balcony as advertised on the internet. Though I am not complaining at all was still a excellent experience.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The respectful and accomodating staff, the 11am checkout and spacious apartment. Also the Fantastic bed

                Observed mole stains in the grout of the shower,

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                gorgeous old world charm, with high ceilings, a bit noisy from traffic, but would recommend, staff were very obliging!

                the only thing i could fault was the noise factor

              • Group of friends
                5.0

                Close to the stadium for football

                Maybe it would be helpful to have staff who speak english serving breakfast

              • Family with children
                5.0

                I enjoyed the breakfast.

                It was not 5 star. A five star hotel has more than one lift, has staff that say good morning, has a doorman who offers to carry bags and a room with a decent sized bathroom.

              • Family with children
                9.6

                It was a spacious very comfotable room the staff were very friendly and helpfull. the room was exceptionally quiet even though in the middle of the city. we also enjoyed the old world charm combined with modern conveniences.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Location and wonderful helpful staff...The room was spacious and lvely in decor..

                The Room was amazing and location is fantastic

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                We had a balcony as requested, friendly & helpful staff.

                Very long walk (we had room 639) to our room - especially when you have been shopping all day! Use of the lifts at this end of the hotel would have been wonderful, but it was a long walk after walking all day.

              • Older travelers
                5.8

                The bed was very comfortable

                Poor service in the restaurant, and in room. The spa pool was luke warm and we could not access the changing room for the pool complex. Quite frustrating after spending top dollar for the weekend.we found food in the fridge that we asked twice to have removed and nothing was done.
