Latest Melbourne Hotel Reviews

Home away from home
By Victor
As a regular, almost weekly guest for the last two years, the IC Rialto has become like a second home. This is in large part due to the friendly and personalised service of the staff in the Club. It [More] is a shame to see Kishor, the Club Manager, moving into another role. Along with the friendly staff in the Club, he was an important part of the welcome experience and making guests feel comfortable. Highly recommend the IC Rialto in Melbourne as a quintessential Melbourne hotel experience. [Less]
Stay here - it's the best !
By MRDavid
I love this hotel. The location, the old world charm, the bar and especially the beds ! While the rooms are not huge - they are very well designed and the layout of essentials works. Bar staff [More] always attentive and knowledgeable. Easy walking to the city shops and Southbank - or tram not far away. 7eleven and bottle shop across the road which is handy. I'll be back ! [Less]

Favourite accommodation in Melbourne
By Cheryl
I have been staying at this hotel for years. It is the only place I stay when in Melbourne. I love the location, the staff are always friendly and obliging and the renovated guest rooms are furnished [More] well. The beds are so comfortable and the rooms are always immaculately clean. The rooms are equipped with electric operated black out blind and privacy blind. The buffet breakfast will not disappoint, there are many choices and an egg station is included for extra options. I sometimes bring my 10 year old grandson with me and he loves the pancake machine. The hotel also has a user pay guest laundry if required. The hotel is in very close proximity to Marvel Stadium, Southern Cross Station and the City Circle tram that will take you around the city. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. It ticks all the boxes for me. [Less]
