                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  The building has a charm and character that is lacking in CBD hotels. Friendly and helpfull staff.

                  The room I was in this time (I have stayed before) was a little noisy during the night, possible cleaners, but machinery or appliances were being moved in the early hours.

                • Single
                  9.2

                  The close proximity to the Bayview Eden - where I was attending a conference. I chose the Charlsfield because the windows open and this is my key criteria in selecting a hotel!

                  They should have warned me that booking a taxi on a Sat eve is difficult - I had to wait for over 40 mins and was late attending the conference dinner!

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  Convenience to where relatives are living, Very close to city. Easy to catch trams. 24 hr reception

                  The gym was not in the complex

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  Character boutique hotel with charm

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  comfortable room, chance to play snooker, the reading room and to stay in a hotel with some character

                  It is only a minor point but some christmas music was being played while we had our evening meal, This was not appropriate.

                • Single
                  8.2

                  Quiet, particularly gvien it was beside a main road. Staff were helpful and friendly

                  Phone did not work and bedside clock faulty. Breakfast was fairly pricy for what you could get.

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Location - as we were out of the busy city district, a short tram ride to most places including St Kilda which was abuzz and within the Airport Shuttle route. Albert Park was also directly behind the hotel which was great for our morning walks. The price topped everything off.

                • Single
                  7.4

                  the comfort and friendliness and food

                  no beer on tap and the beer was too expensive $ 7.50 for a stubbie .. no selection of restraunts or bars etc with in walking distance

                  Enjoyed the old style hotel and is well looked after and maintained. Close to city and Belgium Beer Cafe

                  Beautiful, charming hotel which is exceptional value for money

                  Some noise from people up above the room

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Excellent boutique hotel in good location - outside city centre but on tram routes and pleasant walk. Good room, pleasant staff

                  Car parking innearby multi storey a bit fraught but mostly my fault

                • Group of friends
                  7.0

                  Location is good, easy access to site- seeing locations.

                  The location was perfect! Just outside the city. The tram was across the street and you could buy a day pass for all the trams at the desk. The building was beautiful and a nice break from a "normal" hotel. The staff was wonderful and very helpful.

                  The walls were a bit thin. Luckly there weren't any families near us or it may of been worse with noise. The water in the shower took a little while to warm up. Otherwise all was good.
