... I went to the Melbourne Museum and had a good look around. There was a really interesting temporary exhibit on the Aztec's. The rest of the museum was also pretty good. It had a section on Melbourne, something about the forests in the area, a human body section, and a section on the Aboriginal people.

The week days are unlikely to be overly exciting, but hopefully I can pass the time on the weekends with some exploring, which will mean the blog posts get a bit more ...

... Christmas) picked me up and had previously invited me to go and stay at hers. We dropped the bags off at her house then went and collected her two gorgeous girls up from school and day care. We had a lovely dinner and then were entertained by Summer (3 year old!) for most of the evening! It was such a nice feeling to sleep in my own room without getting disturbed with people coming in and out at all hours at the hostels!! As you could imagine I slept like a ...

Leg 1 - Melbourne to Barossa

... and Eden Valleys before we stopped at an amazing old tree called the Herbig Family Tree just outside Springton. In the mid-1850's, a couple and their 2 small children lived in the hollow of the tree before deciding to have another 14 children! I can only imagine what Mrs Herbig said of their accommodation after discovering child #3 was on the way.

Our route towards Tanunda in the Barossa took us over the top of Mengler's Hill ...

Last waltz in Vienna

... of rooms of Rubens without thinking too much about it! We caught a train to the Danube for a picnic lunch, ticking off one of the last things on our list for Vienna. It must be very nice somewhere else, because it definitely wasn't where we were. Brand new marina, Hilton hotel, waterside promenade, all deserted and ugly on a holiday weekend in Spring. We saw another very special performance from the music tour, this time in the Votive Church, in the centre of Vienna. The ...

... welfare system). Yes the Australian welfare system, can you imagine calling people not the most polite people, which have no money and demand them to pay off debts of thousands of dollars without having money? I am sure you can’t because it was terrible. Anyway after those two weeks another extension of four weeks was offered on a different project. This time we were lucky enough to call people with debts with an energy company. After the four weeks a ...

    Walk to anything, great clean rooms


    I hadn't heard of this hotel before but wanted one in the centre of town for a weekend away and this was perfect! We could walk to the shops and Crown easily, then had room service when we finally got back to our room...Next day went to the footy, just a short tram ride away, trams are at the doorstep.

    The reception staff were friendly, the rooms fresh and clean, free movies (Foxtel), large king bed. We'd definately stay again if we wanted a night in town.

    Great location, friendly staff


    My room on the 11th floor at the back of the hotel was quiet, and a bit smaller than I'd hoped for, however, when you're coming to Melbourne to sightsee and enjoy the nightlife, room size shouldn't be a factor.

    Excellent location Great Veiw


    Located across the road from Flinders Street Station in the heart of Melbourne. Staff were friendly and efficient on arrival and the concierge looked after our car for us without delay. Unfortunatley, the car park is not on the premisise and your car is whisked away to a location unknown. Flinders St is also busy and you get a bit intimidated by the traffic wizzing past your car in the street until it is taken away. We had a room at the front, so had a view of the Yarra River, Southbank and Flinders Street Station. The higher up you can stay the better. Our room was well appointed with what looked like reasonably new if not new furniture and fittings. We had the Bed and Breakfast deal which was reasonable and the breakfast was the normal hot buffett in the Restaurant on site. 20 Minutes warning to the concierge is required to get your car back, but if you ring just before you go down to reception and pay your bill, the car wont br far behind. Would definitely stay again and in fact we have.

    Small rooms


    Our room was very small and there was not even a proper wardrobe to hang our clothes in. There was just a small unenclosed hanging space area to place our clothes in and there was no space to place our two suitcases.

    Definitely not a 4 star!


    Led to believe this was a four star, and maybe the rest of the hotel is, but my room wasn't! You can do much better than this for the price, even on discounted sites. The room was clean, but small, and on the third floor looking onto a terrace of the restaurant next door - luckily it was cold, but I noted the huge outdoor barbeque, so stay clear of this side in summer as it clearly is a huge entertaining deck for the restaurant. If you can, get a high floor. Pretty awful foyer as well, and the location although central is in one of the least appealing parts of the city, which is worse at present because of all the construction around.

    Excellent Value! Will Return!


    My husband and I visited Melbourne at the end of 2004 and had a great stay at Ramada Melbourne. I had read the reviews on Tripadvisor, and was a little concerned, however, we recieved an excellent deal through Flight Centre, Australia (online) at $99/night so thought we'd give it a go.

    This should be a 2 star hotel


    For AUS$280 per night you would expect something half decent. I don't know how they class this hotel as 4 star. The room was clean but very average for the money. Our room on the top floor had one tiny window that looked out to a nice concrete slab of the building next door. My friend in another room down the hall had her wallet stolen from the room, however, concierge were extremely good at helping us with the police etc.

    The only photographs available on the net was an 3D rendering of the building that looks quite modern. It is a 70's building re vamped. If you can get this hotel for AUS$100 - $150 per night it would be OK otherwise try somewhere else.

    Extremely dissapointed.




    With the exception of a very helpful and friendly concierge, Ramada Melbourne was a big disappointment. The snappy and unhelpful attitude of reception staff to the unavailability of the room well after check-in time, poor water pressure, no news channel and no access to the business centre on Sunday all combined to spoil the stay.

    Very Nice Place


    I was there from 10 to 15 December 2003. Very nice and pleasant room.

    Place is well located in the heart of the city where everything in the city is within a walking distance. Do try to get rooms number 11 onwards e.g 4011 for a nice view of the observation deck and not 10 or below or you will risk looking at walls out your window. One word of caution though, i was there from wednesday till the next monday and they served the same breakfast everyday.

    Shower in cold water during winter


    The water temperature could changed drastically from hot to chilled from bath tub shower. (my room was 5010)
