Der 15 stündige Flug in eco ist qualvoll, aber irgendwie nicht so qualvoll wie ich mich vorgestellt hatte. Ich kann immer eine gute Movie auf einem Flug finden, und irgendwie komme ich immer zu Tränen am Ende. Das Vorteil vom flugkino ist, in der Dunkelheit, meisten sehen das nicht. so kann ich die Peinlichkeit vermeiden, beim Trä …
Nous profitons de nos dernières heures à Melbourne pour acheter quelques souvenirs (légers et peu encombrants, nos sacs à dos ayant tendance à peser plus lourd au fil des jours) et découvrons un ensemble de portes d'ascenseurs datant de 1932. Le reste du système a manifestement été rénové si on en juge par la vitesse à laquelle défilent …
Nous allons ce matin chez Telstra pour vérifier que mon netbook peut bien recevoir une clé 3G. Il faut patienter un peu mais au moins cette fois, le technicien est compétent (nous sommes dans une capitale d'état quand même !) et rajoute les autorisations nécessaires pour que le logiciel puisse être installé. J’achète donc une clé avec 3GB de …
Lever tôt pour déplacer la voiture avant 8h car alors nous serons en stationnement interdit. Pauline nous emmène à l'aéroport et c’est avec tristesse que nous terminons ces six semaines ensemble mais elle doit maintenant penser à regarnir son porte-monnaie avant de continuer sa découverte de l’Australie.
Nous retrouvons avec …

le Victoria (All Seasons) est très bien placé au centre de Melbourne. Les chambres ont été rénovées et sont très confortables

Historical Traveler Reviews The Victoria Hotel Melbourne
Good location they are doing construction across the street, starting at 5:30 am! If you wake up early, then fine, but otherwise this is a huge inconvenience. If you are on a budget, this place is a good deal, close to the CBD, very well located, but the rooms are shabby, slightly dirty, and the fitness area was "closed" during our entire stay. A perk - they have high speed internet available. But if you can afford better, choose somewhere else!
Watch out!! There might be a mouse in your room
I stayed in this hotel for several nights.
It was an extremely uncomfortable experience.
The elevators in the hotel are very old and terrible.
The most terrible thing is I saw a mouse running in my own room!!
This hotel only change my room without any formal apology and help.
They don't care about customer's feeling and health!!
We visit Melbourne every three months or so, and always stay here. Great value for money, buffet breakfast included with some rates and is terrific.
Convenient but ........
Good central location but in Sept 2004 much noise from building site across the road. Had a "superior" room so no shared facilities, but very basic, although spacious. As we found all through our Australian trip, the concept of service in hotels is sadly lacking, here the breakfast room was strict to the minute on opening times, and there was always a queue to show your breakfast vouchers. did not dine in of an evening so cannot comment on this aspect. No atmosphere in the bar.
I stayed at the Vic on a business trip. This is a fantastic location in the centre of Melbourne - you cannot get a better location for the same price.
Only problem was that our travel agent didn't tell us that there are two types of rooms - Superior and Economy. If you book the Economy room (like us) you will be in an older wing of the Hotel in a room which has no shower or toilet. There are communal showers and toliets which were, I must say, extremely clean. Our room smelled of smoke even though we requested a non-smoking room.
On the whole, the Economy rooms provide good accommodation if all you plan to do at the hotel is sleep. FANTASTIC LOCATION!!!
This hotel has a fantastic location, an appealing lobby, extremely pleasant staff, good prices, and decent, freshly-painted accomodation. BUT the bed was absolutely the world's most uncomfortable bed. It sank into the middle and the pillows felt like concrete. Not a very restful stay!
I always stay at the Vic. Have for umteen years.
Victoria, great location
Victoria Hotel was in an excellent location for shopping, sightseeing etc. Facilities adequate, our room still a bit dated after renovations but clean. Room facing Lt Collins was very noisy in mornings due to construction across the road, and at night with late night revellers. Internet cafe onsite was good however unable to connect to MSN after paying for 1 hour access - no technical help staff avail. All in all, would stay there again and emphasise a quiet room as request for quiet room went unheeded.
Stayed at The Victoria last March on a shopping trip and we were very happy with our deal which included an excellent buffet breakfast. We are staying there again in February and would recommend it to travellers that want good value for money accommodation in an excellent position.
A very pleasant surprise!
Travelling on from Sydney to Melbourne, my boyfriend and I were after some budget accomodation, and opted for The Victoria from the guide book. The prices were budget but the hotel definitely was not. The Victoria is absolutely brilliant value for money, a large hotel in a very convenient location near Melbournes central shopping area. After our genuinely budget accomodation in Sydney (dorm like accomodation) this was only a little more expensive but much more plush, so that, after lugging in our backpacks, i thought wed come to to wrong place! definitely recommended foir all visitors to melbourne who are watching their pennies but like pleasant surroundings, nice rooms, shiny bathroom, maid and porter facilities, TV, etc etc.
