It's a Modern Art Deco Treasure

If you like something with class, flair, modernity and with an art deco bent you will love the Royce. I have stayed at this hotel on at least five occasions and have enjoyed it every time. There is an interesting range of rooms, but when you travel for business, it's the small things that make you efficient on the road. Other than a pool, all facilities are in the hotel should you need it. It has a great public bar, a brilliant restaurant and its a quick 5 minute ride to the city in a cab or 8 in a tram.

Our default Melbourne location

We always stay at the Royce when we go to Melbourne. It's in a great location on St Kilda Rd, very close to the Botanical Gardens, a quick tram trip to the city or Chapel St and we always feel welcomed and appreciated. The staff will always greet you with a smile and a hello, the breakfast buffet hits the spot and the rooms are comfortable and smart. Why go anywhere else?

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Stretch your legs and walk along to Toorak Rd and then down to Chapel St. Once you've filled your bellies and emptied your wallets, jump on the tram back to the hotel. Everything you need is just around the corner!

something missing

The room was very cold and our view was the hotel roof top. Just felt like there was something missing. For that price point I felt I should have got something more!!

Great boutique hotel

We chose to stay at the Royce because we were attending a wedding and the reception was being held there. It is in such a convenient location. The rooms are very well appointed and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more welcoming. The breakfast was really good and the staff in the dining room couldn't have been more helpful.
