Poor customer service, standard quality, good location

Poor customer service, unfriendly faces, and although the hotel is located in a quiet alley near the China Town and Melbourne Central, a lot of reasons to hate. Asked receptionist about the housekeeping service and Cassie said, there is no housekeeping service, left the hotel for day tour, and came back hotel room was serviced.

Efficient and excellent services for check in/ out

Since we know the late arrival to Melboune means no public transport , we have last minutes booked a car to come down to city. Thanks to the hotel's prompt reply in how to park the car near the hotel, we felt confident to drive to hotel ourselves from the airport. The hotel receptionist is very effective and efficient to receive us ( only 3 minutes comparing to an hour queuing for car rental). Fraser hotel is really great to us.... The room is excellent modern comfortable and complex enough, even with balcany for fresh air... We got buy one get one free breakfast great value for money ... The front desk gentlemen is very helpful to roll my left luggage from storage room to car... Thanks a lot for the excellent services... We really enjoy it and I 'll recommend this hotel to all my friends....

Fun weekend getaway

Location was on the fringe of CBD, so good for outings in the northern part of CBD. Rooms were modern comfortable and clean. No views due to close building.

Mobile Deadspot

My room had no reception without going out onto the very small balcony. The supply free wifi which to me says they are well aware of this fact. However the wifi was rubbish and couldn't even support a Skype call. I asked if I could move rooms however they said thy were 100 occupied over the 2 nights I had left. More like they wouldn't find a room with reception. On the last Thursday night I stayed there were some yahoo's partying on a balcony until after midnight. The courtyard bounded by buildings up to the 12th floor amplified the noise. No staff told them to be quiet. The room had next to no information. The phone had no numbers to reach reception or anything. Note said to check the website for more info. No internet makes that difficult and when I did the info was not specific. Overall pretty amateur.

Comfortable and convenient

Fraser Place Melbourne is in a convenient location within easy walking distance of the city centre and close to many eating places such as Chinatown. Our studio apartment was compact and a little dated but still comfortable.

The Place to Be in the heart of Melbourne

Affordable and value for money. Clean and modern room with everything you need away from home- cozy and comfy bed, spacious room, modern and spacious bathroom with strong shower, kitchenette complete with tea/coffee making facilities, gas burner, plates , pots and pans, microwave. Though the hotel is 6-10 min walk to cheap eating places and Chinatown, the cooking facilities are handy for bacon egg and toast breakfast before you head out for your big Melbourne day. You don't have to worry about your clothes getting wrinkled as iron and board is available , and if your staying more than 2 days, their washing machine in the room comes handy. The hotel is also 6-10 min walk to the free city circle tram and buses that will take you to many attractions and shopping centres in Melbourne . You can also walk to the famous Bourke Shopping Centre for great buys. We got the studio deluxe room on special, and at under $100.00, we got more than we expected for a 1 night stay. Highly recommended!
