Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We were very happy with the accommodation which was upgraded prior to our arrival. The only detraction is the fact that there isn't a dining area and that room service is only available Monday to Friday.

We had a very enjoyable stay this month, the Hotel hasn't long been done up so it was with great surprise when we opened the door into our rooms. The reception was great and even the cleaning staff had a ready cheerful smile. The volume of people coming and going was busy. There are plenty of small restaurants throughout the...

As a suite hotel, rooms are spacious and well equipped. Small kitchen and dining area, comfortable chair and well appointed bedroom and bathroom. Although very close to Flinders Street, the rooms are very quiet and there were no disturbances to a good night's sleep. Although there is no bar or food service, it is a very short stroll to some...

I have stayed at the Sebel Flinders Lane a few times now. Essentially it is not a hotel so much as a collection of well appointed residences. There is very little by way of service (the bar which used to be there has now been closed and turned into an Accor Vacation Club sales centre). The Internet quality is frankly...

This is a quality apartment hotel in a quiet but easy to reach inner city location. Our executive suite had plenty of space, with clear separations between entry area, dining-kitchenette, lounge, bedroom and a huge bathroom. This is our third stay in about 4 years (but there are reasons for that. If we're paying, we prefer the Sofitel.). Check-in staff...

Hi Waynekerry, Thank you for sharing your review with us. I agree with you regarding not having your room serviced daily. I would prefer it this way as it means that I don't have to clean up before I leave my room each day (not that I'm really messy :)) Thank you for the mention regarding the staff being friendly...

The Sebel Melbourne in Flinders Lane has beautiful apartment accommodation, very quiet and the location is excellent. Would recommend at any time. We always enjoy our stay at the Sebel as we find the location is close to all the shops, trams and just a 5 minute walk to Flinders St station.

Highly recommend to Accor members to stay here. The staff were really lovely and looked after us very well, including upgrading the room so there was more space because I had a colleague staying who was on the sofa bed. Will stay here again.

These rooms are more like apartments. Entry is via the kitchen/dining room, then into a lounge room, then turn into the bedroom and finally into the bathroom. Very different to a traditional hotel! It was convenient having a kitchen (with all utensils) and a fridge, with a real table for eating meals. Internet was disappointing, often cutting-out. There is a...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane was completely refurbished in September 2011, when it celebrated its 90th anniversary. The refurbishment design philosophy drew inspiration from the early "fashion house" days with a view of creating an expression of sophisticated elegance, through an individual design concept that would remain unique to The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane. The result has turned this "all suite" apartment building into a market leading boutique hotel. Presented is a contemporary range of sophisticated one bedroom suites that infuse modern design philosophies with the architectural and historical heritage of the building. Archival Melbourne scenes are displayed in the black and white artwork that adorn the corridors, evolving into a celebration of Melbourne's modern icons throughout the suites. With the retention of the original detailed cornice and architraves, blended with contemporary designer furniture and fittings and modern state of the art appliances, the change is exceptional. The sophisticated colour palette is the key design element, from charcoal European bathroom tiles, contrasted by the white, chrome and glass designer fixtures to the use of dark veneers, stainless steel, leather and stone throughout the design.New Guest Features include The Courtyard which is a European inspired inner city escape that provides guests with an intimate courtyard garden to share a drink with friends or to simply relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. While the days of fashion are well in the past at 321 Flinders Lane, those looking for a fashion experience will not be disappointed with The Sebel Melbourne's Flinders Lane location. Ideally located between Elizabeth and Queen Street, it is in close proximity to Melbourne's shopping, and entertainment district with the added benefit of having Melbourne's famous cafe culture and the iconic Flinders Street Station right around the corner. ... more   less
