Fantastic location

Nice, clean hotel which was fantastically located - right next to the Emporium shopping complex and a short stroll from many cool restaurants and bars. Would definitely recommend

Location, Service & Value for Money

Such a great location for shopping and walking distance to theatres and so many wonderful restaurants nearby. Trams right at the front door. The staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful. Great value for money. The room was small, but it was clean and we had everything we needed. Comfortable bed and instant hot water. Would definitely stay here again next time we go to Melbourne.

Central and Convenient

The location and friendly staff are what make me come back to this hotel when I come to Melbourne. On my last visit, Reception happily changed me from an inter-connecting room for my peace of mind as a single traveller- much appreciated. Being able to store my luggage before check in and after check out is also very helpful and appreciated.

Best location for you shoppers out there!

I have been to Melbourne many times and I have often returned to the Mecure Welcome Melbourne. Its central location to Bourke Street Mall and to all of the major shopping destinations makes it a must. Even if you are thinking, I don't want to walk all the way down to Flinders Street or to Southern Cross Railway station - you don't have to! Trams are now FREE in Zone 1 which covers most spots in the city so jump on and off as much as you please.

Overnight stay

This hotel is currently undergoing renovations, and they are needed. Room on the 11th floor had very tired carpet, cracked tiles and stained, small bath tub in bathroom and the ceiling had definitely seen better days. Staff were pleasant and courteous. The sales pitch for the Accor group not really welcomed by us. Cheap and cheerful would sum up the experience

Touring inner Melbourne

This hotel was being renovated during our stay - yes it was dated (a bit), yes there are flashier places (for a higher price), BUT it was neat, clean, comfortable, quiet (except for the neighbours across the hall who kept waking before 6am and slammed their door after each of the 5 members exited OR entered the room), with brilliant food, and considerate staff. The location is prime for Swanson Street access (20m), Bourke St access (100m), bars (Cookie 100m), shopping (Myers, DJ's, and a fancy new Mall as neighbours) eateries (China Town 100m, Postal Lane 100m, Italian, etc 200m), and involved in the Melbourne Comedy Festival via the basement (great entertainment). In 4 days we saw The Lion King, the Aquarium, the Zoo, the Immigration Museum, the Victoria Markets, the CBD Easter shop sales, 10 comedians, and a different restaurant every night. We will return!

nanny and Amelia's trip

I love staying at the Mercure Welcome Melbourne but this trip I was disappointed with the first room we were given. It was good enough for a one night stay but I wasn't happy with it as we were staying 3 nights. I did speak to reception after our first night and they changed us to a nicer lighter room with no problem and we were presented with a nice note and a box of chocolates which I did not expect.
