    The hotel is gorgeous, located in an absolutely beautiful heritage building. Very comfy and stylish rooms. Everything is sparkling and new, very nice. The concierge and doormen were great too, nothing is a problem for them, very polite and helpful. Pool, sauna etc were all fantastic.

    The only tiny negative I can think of was that we found the room temperature a bit too warm.

    Liked everything about it. The old buildings are very tastefully renovated.

    If I had any complaint it was the corridors are very long and if your room is at the end - which ours was - it is a long walk.

    very comfortable, in walking distance of most facilities or short tram or train trip. helpful staff

    not a lot of restauarants directly close to the rialto on weekends

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The aesthetics of the interior of the building. It has so much charm. The room was very comfortable and stylish. The comfortable bed. The information available in the foyer about things to do in Melbourne. The proximity to the tram service. The quiet room and noiseless air conditioner.

    The staff at reception were not warm and welcoming. A bath in the bathroom would have made it perfect.

    The hotel facade is nice. Hotel staffs are very friendly and made our stay pleasant. Everyone has a ready smile. The environment is cosy and feels at home. The hotel even has a weighing machine which is a plus to woman.

    Everything was great except the pillows too soft. Breakfast not much variety. Mainly english style breakfast. No congee, noodles, sushi.

    Superb

    Check in staff were friendly and accommodating. I was there as a birthday celebration and was told to expect a little something in my room, but nothing appeared, which was disappointing but only because I was expecting it. Pillows were way too soft and I ended up with a stiff neck. The tv needs to swivel so you can watch tv in bed comfortably I only received one complimentary bottle of water in my room.
