Great location for shopping!

I have stayed at the Welcome Hotel many times. I love the location, so convenient for dropping shopping bags off so you can go and get more! There is a tram stop right outside the door (through Grand Mercure). I travel alone a lot and have always felt safe walking the surrounding streets. While most of the rooms are small, they contain everything you need for your stay. Breakfast in the Loudon is great, price is on par with what you would pay in a cafe. Staff are always friendly and helpful.

Is ok...

Stayed here on Friday night during the Aus Open, so prices were inflated. That aside, the thing about the place is that it's probably in the one of the best locations you would want whilst in Melbourne. Taxi rank, as I found out is right out side too, so no need to worry about hailing or calling one down! My main gripe with the place is that there's no microwave. Absolutely nothing in the fridge (so no mini bar) except 4 long life milk thingys for tea and coffee purposes, so they are encouraging you to put stuff in there... but just not food you would want to heat up the next day. Oh, and the little fridge hums away quite loudly at night. And not to mention, the walls are VERY thin. I heard the people next door scuffle around in their bathroom, and people walk past my room door at all hours. For a 3.5 stars, it's ok. Better if you don't plan on spending all that much time in your room!

A room to dance in

Great location in the CBD, and the pool and gym were great! Bring your bathers... The downside was the downstairs nightclub which could be heard all night. All I could do was as Red Foo says, Wiggle, Wiggle wiggle... The view was of a concrete wall, so great as I have never had that view since in primary school and was told to sit in the corner.

overpriced and outdated

Good location but Mould in the bathroom, room showing alot of wear and very dated in bad need of a renovation. Reminds me of the standard that you get at a dodgy roadside motel. Very overpriced for what you get

Great location but a little noisy

The hotel is in a great location, however the room did not have a safe, was noisy with people in the room next door or those waiting for the lift at all hours day & night. The bathrooms have a shower over the bath not great!!! Every time I caught the lift some one got off on the wrong floor or failed to understand basic lift needs perhaps signage would improve this.

Great location, average room

The hotel is perfectly located for sightseeing, shopping and restaurants. The room however had poor ventilation, hence had a musty/damp smell.

Great location

The Mercure Welcome coudn't be better located: it's right in the heart of Melbourne, with easy access to transport and many popular tourist attractions within walking distance. Have stayed there several times because it's so convenient and good value for money. Room amenities are OK, but nothing out of the ordinary, but that doesn't really matter if you're out and about most of the time.

2 day stop over

A great location - right in the city. The room was a little cramped though and quite dark, but neat and tidy with everything needed for a quick stop over rather than a longer stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
