Check in went without a hitch, the staff were all very professional and friendly making you feel welcome from the moment you approach the front door. They say the first impression is important, well
at the Rialto it starts as you approach the front door with a friendly welcome from the doorman and it stays that way for the entire stay.
The room was comfortable and spacious, yes I know that is what you expect at a 5 star hotel, but I have been in other so called 5 star hotels that don’t come anywhere near the standard of the Rialto. The night blind works like a treat, and the bed was so comfortable. A great night’s sleep.
The buffet breakfast was very good with a huge selection of hold and cold dishes to choose from and again the staff were very helpful and nothing seemed like too much trouble. Complete with real coffee from a barista who was not only friendly but made great coffee.
And if it is a well earned drink at the end of the day then try either the Bluestone Wine Lounge or the Market Lane Bar. I did, tried them both and they have a good selection of wine and beer and reasonably priced. Perfect for the end of a busy day.
Great location, close to transport and the Southbank entertainment area. Just a quick walk up Collins Street to the main shopping area or there is a taxi rank right at the front door and a tram stop about 50 meters up the road. Take your pick it couldn’t be easier to get around. [Less]
