Still the best
The Rialto is still my stand-out favourite Melbourne City hotel. The locations, staff and room quality are a step above the rest in my view. Last weekend was my 7th visit and I plan to go back next time I need a place in the Coty.

Honeymoon Trip
1) Honeymoon trip, for special occasion - hotel gave us a 2 glass of complimentary champagne, very nice. 2) Room is very clean and Staff also nice & polite. 3) Around 15 mins to Southgate areas
1) Location is not in central shopping area but close to the free bus station, however, probably no more free bus at night time when you back hotel and taxi is very expensive in Australia. 2) No view in this hotel 3) Inside swimming pool is very small and the ventilation system is very bed....so hot !

Excellent stay
Food, bar, atmosphere
Great gym, location, room, bar, restaurant. Really enjoyed the stay and the in-room dining was absolutely delicious. Probably the best room service food I have ever eaten. Great relaxed feeling throughout the hotel.
