great after room change

Had 3 days there. totally enjoyable experience. 60 yr old lady traveller, Would stay again. Felt safe. 1st 5th fl room was noisy 24/7 (near an aircon generator outlet or similar)Asked to change, nicely accomodated my request. Changed to 7th fl. Newer bathroom and much quieter. Location is heart of Melbourne CBD. $10 taxi fares to NGV and most attractions were in walking distance.

Get taxi drivers to show you the meter as I was ripped off by one overcharging by 40%.He said the meter only showed the end trip DAH. I have reported his number to the company. $10 to NGV, $9 to casino, Skybus is best option from airpoirt. $28 return.

Excellent Location Explore Melbourne City

We enjoyed this hotel location for shopping in Melbourne. Also great if you are going to the Theatres. However free wi fi would be an added bonus.

Great couples location

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay here. It is located right in the middle of melbourne and everything is just a walk away. The staff were lovely and checked us in when we got there at 9am even though our check in wasn't until 2pm. It was clean, tidy and everything we needed for a place to get away for the weekend.

If you want a bit of a walk (about 20mins) head to lygon st, there are great restaurants there and a great atmosphere.

Very central

Clean & comfy with helpful staff. For a city centre hotel it was really good value for money & the breakfast was brilliant (although you had to queue if you arrived late).

Stay at Mercure Welcome

We have stayed at the Mercure quite a few times and this time the room was so small it was a bit claustrofobic. We only stayed overnight but we have had better rooms (Larger). Otherwise it was what we expected .

Visiting Melbourne

This hotel was great for the location. Since it is located in the CBD most tour excursions will pick you up at the hotel and return you there when you are through. It was also close to restuarants.The tram was located one block away. The staff couldn't have been more helpful .Would definitely stay there again.
