Nice small boutique hotel. Don't miss the rooftop terrace for a view of Melbourne skyline. The hotel is in walking distance of the botanical garden and a number of cafes around the corner. Best rooms are facing the back.

This hotel came highly recommended by friends and indeed there were lots of positives: nice linen and towels; designer toiletries; a high standard of cleanliness; good coffee; nice breakfast; the tram at the doorstep; shops and restaurants just minutes away. Not so positive were the hard, lumpy bed and the buzzing of the room fridge which was just one of the sounds, along with conversations, sneezes and television (until past 2am) in adjacent rooms that kept me awake most of the night. A good place for heavy sleepers (and I do use ear plugs).

Room Tip: Perhaps try a room on the top floor.

I stayed in The Hatton for two nights in the Eastern Balcony Suite. This is located at the front of the hotel and has a sizeable balcony overlooking the street. The street is a bit noisy at night with trams passing and pedestrians talking, but that is quite normal in this part of town. The hotel has a really boutique feel and the staff was friendly. The furnishing is quite unique, mainly traditional Chinese, and functional. The room was very clear and the bed comfortable. Daily continental breakfast of excellent quality is included in the room rate. This is served in the 'hub' where the reception is located as well. Overall a really nice hotel that offer an experience that is very different from the average business hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of the hotel will be quieter.

We had ten nights at the Hatton and really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in two different rooms as we split our stay with a trip to Tasmania. Both rooms were nice, a good size, with big bathrooms and a small kitchen area. The hotel is very charecterful, lots of art and a nice roof terrace. The hotel only does breakfast and very light snacks, but that didn't matter, as there are so many good restaurants within immediate walking distance. It's in a brilliant location; there is a tram stop right outside the door. It's two minutes away from the beautiful botanical gardens and within walking distance from the city. The staff were helpful and pleasant - I loved Amy in particular. I visit Melbourne often and would definitely stay here again. One tip for elderly or disabled guests, there isn't a lift so ask for a room on the ground floor.

Room Tip: We loved room 21, it was spacious and quiet.

This is a grand multi-level, terrace building in a lovely part of South Yarra close to the Botanical Gardens. The complimentary breakfast is a healthy self-serve continental buffet, breakfast cereals/fruit/yoghurt/juices/gourmet toast/cheese/jams/tea/barrista coffee. The rooms are all different so it invites repeat stays to experience the variety, bedding is brilliant white with the loveliest of down doonas, ( wish the mattresses were pilowtops!), bathrooms are clean and rooms are always cleaned to a high standard.

Room Tip: Rooms on west side of building are quiet. Not suitable for elderly/handicapped due to staircases and high step-in baths.
