Fantastic Hotel!

Hotel staff were always friendly and helpful, the hotel itself was modern and clean and the rooms were comfortable. The beds are amazing and comfortable. The hotel location is a short distance walk to all the major attractions. Will definitely return.

Great Weekend

Stayed Fri & Sat nights in King Room, good amenities and friendly staff. Close to southern cross station. Good for the Football. Short walk to Southbank & Casino. Stayed here many years ago and would appear that rooms have been upgraded since. Valet Parking $50 per night is getting up there a bit. Would stay again.

treated like a VIP

Stayed 2 nights with family/ friends enjoying dinner and a theatre show. We came from regional Victoria and Broome, so a night in the "big smoke" was made extra special for us by the hotel staff. The only drawback was "lukewarm" showers in the morning - must have run out of hot water... but when we mentioned this at checkout, they were apologetic and waived our valet parking fees. Overall a very good experience.

Love this hotel!

Have stayed here before & I will definitely be coming back. A five star hotel in all aspects but not a five star price tag! The hotel also has a lot of charm being in an old building but it doesn't feel old & this visit we discovered a number of great restaurants near by. I also joined up the reward program which instantly allowed us complimetary wifi & a late check out (2pm) - perfect as our flight was 6:50pm. Can't wait to stay here again.

Staff were very friendly and genuinly intetested in whatever we were doing. We spent 4 days here and loved every moment. Its position to world class restuarants is exceptional. Only criticism is that like many hotels, there is only one arm chair to sit in once back in your room.

Good place to Stay in Melbourne

I like the Rialto, especially the Club facilities, which are first rate. Its can be a bit dark and gloomy and on weekends it lacks atmosphere, but all in all, one of the better hotels in Melbourne
