Location, Location and Location!
Initial impressions of this place made my heart sink, the entrance is down a side alley amongst the dumpsters and the room allocation was very disapointing, we booked 2 rooms and were allocated both on 11th floor, one right opposite the lifts and the other not too far down the narrow dark corridor. They were tiny, basically a cupboard with beds, bathrooms were old and dated as was the furniture and decor. I asked to be moved to the adjoining Grand Mecure which has the entrance on Swanston Street and bigger rooms, I was prepared to pay extra for this because I could not have forced my family to stay where we were, it was very depressing! Fortunately the staff were very understanding and offered me an alternative. For no extra cost we could have 2 rooms on the recently refurbished floor 10, here the rooms were much bigger and the bathrooms, although still very pokey, were nice and modern, a huge improvement on the current situation!

Location is awesome
Location, restaurant, staff
great location and friendly staff. Small rooms and you need to pay to access the pool in the Grand Mercure in the same building. Suitable for a short stay.

City Break
Location, Affordable, Friendly Staff
Second time staying at the Mercure Welcome. the location is perfect! Located 2 minutes from Chinatown, The Emporium is across the street and Bourke Street Mall is 2 minutes away. This is a very affordable hotel for singles or couples who are looking to save money on accmodation costs.

One night stay in Mercure Welcome Melbourne
Location, price, cleanliness
I had a fantastic short overnight stay. The hotel itself is right in central Melbourne and very close to transport and major streets/lanes with all the shops and restaurants. The lifts can get really busy though as there are only two, especially during the holiday period as the hotel was probably booked out.
