BEST WESTERN Atlantis Hotel
Travel Blogs from Melbourne
Flew into Melbourne for the weekend ahead of a work meeting on Monday.
Friday night spent at a couple of Melbourne's great small bars (see my earlier entry for a massive list of bars).
Saturday went to the races for the Cox Plate.
Sunday, nursed a hangover by hiring bicycles and riding to St Kilda.
Highly recommend this place …
Finally after much anticipation, I finally achieved my lifelong goal of driving on the left hand side of the road in city traffic. We walked the kilometer or so from our hotel to Hertz to pick up a car, and then drove the 20 kilometers back to the hotel…. Turns out it a much longer trip when you can only make left turns. It went quite well if …
From what we see Melbourne is a very clean, well-organized city. There are several well defined districts, or precincts: theatre, financial, sports, legal, etc. The city allocates 1% of its budget for the arts and 20% of its area for parks which makes for a very pleasant atmosphere. They also offer bicycle rentals, similar to Montreal's Bixi Bikes …
My dad gave me the best early Birthday Present ever. He came all the way to Australia just to see me and spoil the hell out of me. We had a slow start to the week because I was recovering from my week at Uni Games. I got to see alot of Melbourne CBD and a few touristy places. We also did tours out to Phillip Island (where the little Penguins are) …
Before coming to Australia, we'd decided that we definitely would be paying a visit to Melbourne - Caoimhe's brother and wife had lived there for a stint and couldn't say enough about it - on top of that some of Banbridge Clann fellas had settled there!
Booked into a nice wee spot for 3 nights (Best Western – Atlantis - http://www. …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Cannot complain for accommodation at just over $100. Room was on Spencer street side so we had the tram noise and the construction noise from the tear down across the road.
But the room was great, modern, clean and with all the mod cons.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Atlantis Hotel Melbourne
We only had a one night stay here but found the price and location excellent. We paid 80.00 for the night which included a continental breakfast ... an absolute bargain! The rooms were clean and spacious and we were fortunate enough to have a great view. Only downside was the guy on reception ... not the sort of person who should be front office, I found him to be rude. Would definitely say again.
We booked directly on the hotel website, which entitled us to a good deal with inclusive breakfast. The description of the room as a "suite" was certainly a bit of a stretch, just a bed with a small sofa and coffee table next to it, however it was clean and tastefully decorated. The views from the 10th floor are impressive, particularly at night.
If you want to stay in this hotel, it's best to book it through the hotel's website cuz you'll get a better deal. I got mine at $89 a night and saved quite a bit of money that way.
We got a good deal for the Atlantis through Atlantis Express. Note though - if you book this way you pay $25 to cancel, so be sure of your reservation (you can change it for free)
We stayed at this hotel for six nights in mid March. The room was as clean, modern and comfortable as previous posters stated. This hotel's got its own website (atlantishotel) which offers better deals on certain days of the week than the Best Western Groups one. We booked directly via the former website and got a good deal of AU$ 90 nett per night inclusive of breakfast. If we had booked through the latter website, we would have paid AU$140 per night for room only.
We visited this hotel during the Australian Open and paid about $125AUD. Given the rate at this time of year, the hotel was a pretty decent deal. Only problem I would have was that we were given a smoking room when we requested a non-smoking room. And because we were so tired by the time we arrived (and the hotel was pretty much booked solid), we didn't bother pushing for a non-smoking room. The hotel is definitely not in the most scenic of areas and is quite a long walking distance to the city centre, but it's close to a tram stop where you can take either the 70 into the CBD or the City Circle Tram. Would consider coming back, depending on the price.
This is a clean, modern hotel with well-presented but plainly furnished rooms. Everything in this hotel feels like it is brand new, very nice. Our room had good views over the building work at Spencer Station station but no noise.
Great Place to Stay
Stayed at this hotel last month.
Good Location, Nice rooms and excellent value for money.
The room I stayed in had a lovely view.
The staff were great and gave me lots of good tips of where to go and what to see.
Guy @ the front desk recommended some great little places to eat.
Would stay here again, very handy to Spencer Street Station.
Still In Love with the Atlantis
Stayed at the Atlantis Hotel on a recent trip to Melbourne and found it to be both comfortable and well located.The Staff were friendly and helpfull and gave us excellent directions to local attractions.The Price is reasonable we paid $135 AUD and the rooms all have some views of the city, even though they have been a little blocked by a new building a few doors down....but still could see the city and the Docklands.Very easy access to the Airport with the Skybus terminal 100 mtrs away.
