    The building has a charm and character that is lacking in CBD hotels. Friendly and helpfull staff.

    The room I was in this time (I have stayed before) was a little noisy during the night, possible cleaners, but machinery or appliances were being moved in the early hours.

    The close proximity to the Bayview Eden - where I was attending a conference. I chose the Charlsfield because the windows open and this is my key criteria in selecting a hotel!

    They should have warned me that booking a taxi on a Sat eve is difficult - I had to wait for over 40 mins and was late attending the conference dinner!

    Convenience to where relatives are living, Very close to city. Easy to catch trams. 24 hr reception

    The gym was not in the complex

    Character boutique hotel with charm

  • Older travelers

    comfortable room, chance to play snooker, the reading room and to stay in a hotel with some character

    It is only a minor point but some christmas music was being played while we had our evening meal, This was not appropriate.

    Quiet, particularly gvien it was beside a main road. Staff were helpful and friendly

    Phone did not work and bedside clock faulty. Breakfast was fairly pricy for what you could get.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Location - as we were out of the busy city district, a short tram ride to most places including St Kilda which was abuzz and within the Airport Shuttle route. Albert Park was also directly behind the hotel which was great for our morning walks. The price topped everything off.

  • Single

    The hotel was full of character and very close to the City. rateas are very reasonable and the ambience lovely.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The location was perfect! Just outside the city. The tram was across the street and you could buy a day pass for all the trams at the desk. The building was beautiful and a nice break from a "normal" hotel. The staff was wonderful and very helpful.

    The walls were a bit thin. Luckly there weren't any families near us or it may of been worse with noise. The water in the shower took a little while to warm up. Otherwise all was good.
