    Very good

    Friendly staff, intimate atmosphere, location (outside of busy city centre but not too remote), restaurant, architecture, amenities, proximity to public transport.

    Fabulous

    The hotel staff were great. I was not happy with our room because it was very small and the bed was a double and we are use to a king bed. When I asked for another room with a queen bed they were on it straight away and gave us a larger room with a king bed all for an extra $10 a night. Overall the stay at the Charsfield was a very pleasent experience.

    what makes a 5 star hotel?? the one you feel at home and not the modern hotel factories. Here I felt at home cozy nice people and good kitchen and a lovely warm atmosphere. Will be back at my next stay in Melbourne. Kind regards,Gerard Verbeek

    Very friendly personnel, great and luxurious atmosphere for a good price, close to city centre or at least very to get there by tram. It was worth the price.

    We thought breakfast was a bit expensive for its value.

    Superb

    The location was incredibly convenient to transport. The ambiance was nice, the hotel was quiet. The staff were helpful.

    The breakfast was uninspired for the price.

    Great for the business traveller, I use this hotel whenever I am in Melbourne.

    Breakfast is a bit expensive, plenty of choice on the street.

    We live in the country and travel to Melbourne weekly for work and entertainment. We always stay at Hotel Charsfield for its convenient location, friendly service and good facilities. It is a charming old St Kilda Road mansion that has homely established 'Melbourne' feel to it. It has a good restaurant and we love the library / sitting room.

    A very pleasant informal small hotel, excellently situated in relation to the city and transport. It was recommended by Tasmanian fiends and I am happy to recommend it to others.

    The only problem we encountered was relatively minor - the how water took a long time to get to the tap and the shower was both feeble and extremely hard to adjust to the right temperature

    Fantastic atmosphere because the hotel is an old mansion and the transformation to cater for the modern traveller is very successful, Our room was large and the queen bed super comfortable, We will definitely stay again and recommend to friends, Come to think of it, the charms of Charsfield should be a well kept secret!

    Fabulous

    The age of the building, the sitting room/billiard room and old dinning room. Location and ease of public transport is best.

    Some noise between rooms due to age!

    friendly and courteous staff, location and excellent value for money

    smaller size room, which was ok for a brief 2 night stay

    Fabulous

    The architecture and ambience of the hotel were very pleasing to us. We felt we were staying in a private home rather than a impersonal hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    We stayed in the Junior Suite which was very nice but felt that the bathroom was rather small and narrow.

    Clean Rooms

    The offer of free internet was somewhat missleading in that it was free up to a point regarding data usage and a limit of 100mb. This was one of the reasons for selecting the hotel. As a business oriented hotel it disappointing that this was not clear up front.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    This Hotel has character and old world charm without being pretentious. It is well positioned for public transport.

    The ensuit is a bit small and the room was only just big enough.
