Neighborhood
The Fraser Place hotel is situated in central Melbourne, just moments from the Paris end of Collins Street and perfectly placed for the Central Business District (CBD). Meander down this famous avenue, often called Australia's premier street, to find high-end designer boutiques, theaters and beautiful Victorian shops.
Hints and tips
With only four apartments per floor, this Melbourne hotel is more peaceful than most. The roof terrace on the 14th floor offers an especially quiet haven, while corner apartments are slightly more spacious than others.

Old Melbourne Gaol is within walking distance of the hotel, and well worth a visit if you're interested in Melbourne's Victorian past it was once home to both Ned Kelly and notorious gangster Squizzy Taylor.

This is not a comprehensive list of fees. Any amounts listed above may not include taxes and are subject to change.

Our king room was clean and large enough for us to move around comfortably. The bathroom shower was great with the usual amenities. We would stay here again.

serviced apartment in the heart of Melbourne

The first thing to be aware of is that these are serviced apartments, this is not a hotel. So even though the pricing might lead you to expect hotel-like service you won't get it. If you stay over the weekend don't expect to have your room cleaned on sunday, for some reason Fraser's observe a day of rest for themselves, so expect to clean it yourself. There's a single elevator which can lead to long delays getting up to your room or down from it especially during the day when the staff need to use it to move the cleaners between floors. I know the tone of the review sounds pretty negative, but in general this is quite a reasonable solution if you want a studio apartment for a short period and don't mind a few irritations.

serviced apartments in the heart of Melbourne

stayed in a small studio apartment for a few nights. The building is close to downtown within walking distance of many of the important tourist sites. Only real negative I found was that the bathroom hot water wasn't all that hot, and the shower didn't have much water pressure, something they need to fix (unless of course it was intentional and I've run across the environmentally friendly low-flow shower head).

It's not a good place to stay!

It was a bad experience for us: it is not a hotel, it is a apartament service, that has a good room and bathroons but the airco make a lot of noisy all the time you use it! We can not sleep because it! If you put it "off" the cold at the room kills you!. The room cleanliness is not make on sundays, and at the weekdays, only after 13:00 PM; the breakfeast was good, nothing special, but good enough. The hotel staff and location, near the city circle, were the best things of Fraser Place.

Great location but difficult to access

Very nice room with a new kitchen. It was great to have dishes, cutlery and a toaster in the room. The location is great, but the front entrance of the hotel was under construction so we had to walk around to the back door. That was a little inconvenient, but not a major obstacle. The hotel staff didn't change towels one day (even the ones on the floor) and didn't change sheets another day, but those are minor complaints for a very clean and modern hotel with a suite in the heart of the city. Free internet would have made it a perfect stay.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a great jazz bar seconds from the back door of the hotel. Cover charges are about $15 but the bands are first rate. The best cafes and bars are in the Fitzroy area only about a 30 minute walk away.

Great place to stay, good location. Short walk to many city sights, amenities and public transportation. Enjoyed the choices on the complimentary breakfast. Room was clean and comfortable. Would recommend it to others.
