Je crois que le jet lag a fini par me ratrapper... je suis morte et il est seulement 19h00... oui je suis debout depuis 5h00... c'est ma faute... mais je veux pas changer ma routine encore, je veux aller courir demain matin et me reveiller a cette heure me permet de courir bien avant que le monde se leve :-) BTW je sors pas de l'hotel avant 6h30 …

... customs a lot before our flight, printing out visas, copying bank statements, making sure we didn't have anything made out of wood. We worried we'd have to get a health check on arrival and all these problems we've read about. But it couldn't have gone easier! We went straight through without a hitch. It was so strange to see white people working. It was odd, but similar to home, just after so long away it seemed strange. ...

... that they were waiting at the departure lounge which was about 15 min walk in the opposite direction - oh well! This airport is huge..... much more to it than we first realised a month ago.

Not long after we see Mardi and Bill with big beaming smiles waving to us. Great to see familiar faces. We are all exhausted but happy to catch up - we have all had amazing times and are happy to share the final leg of our journey with good ...

Day 1 The Departure

A travel blog entry by leahandrew

It has taken hours, but we have finally packed the caravan with every conceivable possible necessity for our 6 months trip around Australia. It seems we have packed enough for 6 years instead of 6 months. It is amazing how much we can fit into the caravan. Finally got ...

It's not a cup of coffee, it's a piece of art. With a flower, heart, or some other clever shape carved in steamy foam on top.

And for today's lovely breakfast/lunch, it was Waffles. But not just waffles.

    Greeted by our avid concierge who had been to Chicago recently and had a chat with him. The room is big and the bed is a king. Yeah !!! Great view of the Gardens and location, location, location.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens Melbourne

    Good value

    from

    We stayed at the Radisson on Flagstaff from Apr 15 - Apr 18 in a standard room, on a really good easter special rate of $ 129 per night.

    Very helpful

    from

    We stayed at the Radisson on our tour of Australia for six nights.We found the staff very helpful, friendly, and nothing was to much trouble. Everything is easy to get to either by tram or walking,The Victoria market is worth a visit. We would recommend anybody visiting Melbourne to stay at this hotal.

    Very nice stay

    from

    We recently started our tour at the Radisson. Everything about the hotel was fine. All staff members were friendly and helpful. The king-bedded room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast selection was excellent and offered something for everyone. Unlike some reviews, we liked our location and used the free city tram to get around. We would definitely stay here again.

    Refreshing

    from

    we stayed in the radisson over christmas and found it to be very pleasant. The hotel restaurant had friendly and helpful staff and very nice food.

    the room was very clean and tastefully decorated. sitting in the jacuzzi overlooking the city made being away from family a lot easier!

    only far out of the city if you don't have legs or a map of the tram system.

    Great position for central Melbourne

    from

    The hotel is admirably situated opposite the pretty Flagstaff Gardens, 5 mins walk from Victoria Markets and right by a tramstop for the FREE circular tram that travels around the CBD. The staff were courteous and helpful. Breakfasts excellent choice of fresh food.

    Good value for money.

    Great Beds, boring location

    from

    I spent a recent Saturday night here. The rooms were clean and the bed was absolutely fantastic. Bed was similar to one I had at the Westin at LAX which I thought could not be beaten.

    Whilst the overall room and the breakfast (a bit pricey) were great, on a Saturday and Sunday there ain't much happening around it. Good for those needing a decent nights sleep (like me), but those who want to go out and about, was a bit out of the way.

    Wedding Trip

    from

    Stayed for 8 nights in a superior room with a view over Flagstaff Gardens. Efficient hotel with a reasonable varied breakfast, large room beautifully clean with good bathroom. However - if you are not here on business do not stay at this hotel. It is out on a limb in the business district and when you can't get a cab back from the nightlife its a long, long walk! It definitely has the feel of a business hotel and is popular with airlines for staff stop overs. To sum up, a good average quality business hotel - but rather dull and a bit dated.

    Rather dull and soulless

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the hotel in February. Whilst it was perfectly adequate, the room was nothing special, breakfast was somewhat tired, and the lobby area soulless and unwelcoming. The staff were perfectly pleasant, without being especially engaged in helping you. The hotel's position was a little out of the way, and this perhaps contributed to the slightly heavy hearted feelings we had each day as we trudged back up the hill. Altogether it needed some livelier staff, more welcoming decor, and a better cuisine.

    Tired hotel

    from

    Disapointing Hotel. Rooms in need of update, but clean. Buffet crammed onto one table so you have to fight your way to get to anything as it goes fast and on my visit not replaced. 2 toasters on table to make your own toast - didn't work. Staff were there but as you approach, vanish very quickly. Wouldn't say it was bad - but I would not choose to go back there

    The spruced up police station

    from

    The Raddison occupys what used to be the 1970's style former Police Headquarters (about 10 levels). Lobby medium size with a small hotel shop selling the usually magazines, jewellery and personal items. Bar is combined with the restaurant/ cafe of one side and looks out onto William street and the Flaggstaff gardens opposite. Rooms are fairly large and are of modern design in warm creams and yellow/buttermilk colours. If you get the opportunity, request a front facing room - these look out onto the large park directly across the road. The rooms at the back, look onto the city (which in itself is not a bad view). Rooftop is a fitness centre, jacuzzi and small outdoor seating area looking out over the city. Room service is prompt, reasonable priced for a hotel(about AUD$16 for a burger and fries). Great location, tram/trolleycar runs directly outside into city (hotel is on edge of business district), underground station diagonally opposite and the Queen Victoria Market just around the corner. Overall, a very nice 4star hotel that you wouldn't be dissapointed in.
