I rarely criticise. But this place not only doesn't live up to the general Frasers standard, it is simply a bad product and badly run. Firstly, be prepared for a tiny hotel with next to no facilities. A pretty poor breakfast room is only adequate. From really poor staff who don't engage with you on arrival, nor show any care...

Small room no views no balcony but bars on the window! We were claustrophobic and felt like we were in a prison cell. Really disappointing. nothing like the website advertised. For the money I would recommend saying somewhere else with better facilities & space. Reception staff not very friendly but the cleaning staff and breakfast staff were polite and gracious....

Dear Jmauncol2, Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your apartment.

I was transferred to this hotel after the booking I had in another hotel was cancelled and what a lovely surprise. Originally I was concerned cause I arrived at night and it was down an alley.

Lovely place with comfy and clean room (studio) and super comfy bed. Loved Cassandra and Ubay ..super friendly on check out... on check in was another matter, as the reception duo obviously don't like each other. Great spot being close to pretty much everything.

We stayed for 6 nights in a premier studio apartment. Room was nicely prepared for our arrival and kept clean with amenities topped up during stay.

Frasers was a good experience. The location was not far from the CBD taking only a few minutes to get into the main bit of Melbourne CBD. One issue we had was that check in was at 3pm and we had arrived at 7 am from an overnight flight, so we wanted and needed a sleep asap. Although they were...

Reasonably tidy fit out but not ultra clean. Incredibly noisy at night as the internal door slam and echo. Upon departure, the credit card surcharge that I apparently overlooked in the fine print was highlighted. A second room payment and the security bond was also taken, with 5 days before Christmas, it should be refunded to my account in 5...

The room had everything I needed. Comfortable bed. Well lit. Air-conditioning kept me cool. Breakfast was probably not worth $18 but I got 2 for 1 with my deal so $9 a day was good. Hotel is near a La Trobe tram so free to get anywhere in CBD.

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.
