The Prince, Melbourne
Not what it says!!
Was no tub/shower combo as we booked for. Neither was there a sofa or seating area as was booked. Room was no better than a regular hotel room which is not what it looks like in pictures or in their descriptions. Bar is at street level and music and noise goes well into the wee hours, wasn't nice to sleep to!!

Won over by the breakfast
We had a 4 night stay at the Prince which started out poorly but got better by the day. Cons: We booked a deluxe room but it looked more like a boutique room which is smaller. The receptionist insisted that our room was a deluxe, so don't expect your room will look exactly like the photo in the website. We visited in winter (August) and the heating broke down a few times so eventually we got a portable heater in the room. We couldn't find tissues in the room, and finally found them in the floor of the closet, along with the hair dryer. Both were covered in dust which was disappointing. I even relocated the tissue box to the dresser, yet housekeeping never bothered to wipe the dust off (after 4 nights stay) Also, there was no bottled water in the room. Pros: The neighborhood is quite nice with a good selection of restaurants. The hotel helped us to book a table at a popular Italian restaurant in the neighborhood on a Friday night. The receptionist/concierge was also very enthusiastic to help us on numerous occasions, one of which was helping us with city + airport transportation inquiries. And finally - the breakfast. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant Circa, which is one of the fine dining restaurants in the neighborhood, is really well done. The menu is diverse and the ingredients are so fresh and tasty. By the end of our 4 day stay, we were able to overlook the cons mentioned above. Overall it was an enjoyable stay and we think this hotel is a special one.

Simple comforts
Room - simple taste but lovely light. Bathroom a bit tight. Bed - very fluffy and comfy Staff - polite and helpful Car park - on site, good price ($10 per day) Restaurant/bar Used to have award winning fine dining restaurant and bar as part of the building. No longer a feature as they have become more of an event/reception centre. There are numerous restaurants and a pub just next to it. Transport - tramline and stop just outside Beach to the left If marketing as a luxury stay, does not really have to little things that make it such. Summary - a very comfortable stay
