Fabulous 8.8 From 1,131 reviews

Good 6.0
Because of limited parking, we have to park in street. But it is too difficult to find a steer parking nearby and we get a ticket of AUD 81. It not happened on us.

Exceptional 10.0
Highly Recommend
This is a great place. We paid a little more to be up higher in the tower, which was not a bank breaking amount on top of an already really reasonable price per night. This decision afforded us some stunning views of Southbank and the CBD. The pool is a uniform depth lap pool so it’s not huge and not real shallow so it might not entertain kids, but it was warm, and also had some great views. So many options for food, and groceries within a mile, and not a far walk to the trams. Check in, check out, and service were all great. Maybe a few more towels to help with pool use would be helpful. Highly recommend.

Quiet, modern, sleek hotel with luxury touches
When I was searching for a hotel in Melbourne, I wanted a place that was within walking distance of a specific area, with a kitchen, and easy access to public transport. Imagine Marco ticked all those boxes for me and I was able to splurge a bit by booking a One Bedroom Sky View to enjoy the gorgeous view of the bay and Yarra River. The room was clean and had unexpected touches that made my stay more luxurious feeling, like a rainfall showerhead and a washer/dryer combo. The staff was helpful and friendly, taking care to make sure I got my lost luggage after the airline delivered it the day after my arrival. The only snag in my stay came when I used the washer/dryer on my first day. I washed all the darks in the machine but laundered my white shirt by hand, but then threw the shirt in with the darks to dry. Somehow, just my white shirt came out with pink spots all over it even though I had no red/pink clothing in there. Beware of this if you do decide to use the machine! There are a couple of markets within easy walking distance, but not many restaurants, so this may be a more comfortable location for those who prefer to cook vs. go out for every meal. Bus and tram stops are about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. Overall, I had a very comfortable stay and would definitely come again, if just for that view!
