    Excellent CBD hotel for short or long-term staysOur stay here was very comfortable and pleasant. The room was spacious and beautiful. We had a nice balcony, a well-appointed kitchenette with dishes and cooking utensils, a dishwasher, and a clothes washing machine with built-in dryer. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and included luxury L'Occitane products. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. We skipped the breakfast in favour of eating in the room, but the spread looked good as we passed by. The internet was very fast and we never lost the signal. There is a beautiful rooftop terrace available with comfy furniture. Finally, the location is unbeatable with very close access to trams and minutes walk from Chinatown and the CBD.

    Dear Magdelene, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of our hotel. We are sorry that you did not find our location as convenient as most of our guests. We have two train stations and two tram stops all within 5 minutes walking distance as well as many shopping centres. We are also a serviced apartment, not a hotel so this may explain why some things were missing from your apartment. Please know however that bedroom slippers and any other amenities you may need are available at reception upon request and our staff are also available 24 hours should you need any help or have any questions. Hopefully you enjoyed your stay overall and we can welcome you back in the future to improve on your first impression. Sincerely, Madeleine Front Office Team Leader

    Fraser has become my go-to place whenever im travelling overseas. The chain made me shift from IHG. This one in Melbourne is perfect in terms of location, accessibility and service. Room had everything I needed (washing machine, wine glass, utensils). Staffs were also nice enough to provide extra laundry powder. Buffet breakfast was okay, tried it for 2 mornings and saw a variety. Will definetely go back.

    Third stay here with husband and daughter. It's down a lane way but there's always people around so never feel scared. Plenty of food options nearby and close to the free tram and city loop for trips around the city. The rooms are clean though not all have a view but that doesn't bother us. My only issue this trip was the fridge in this room wasn't working properly. This is because the fridge is in a cupboard and not enough ventilation to cool the motor so it doesn't cool down sufficiently. We ended up dragging it out as we had perishables in there for our trip. I passed these comments to desk staff. Would stay here again.

    Avg location, good facilities and pleasant stay ”

    Only stayed here one night with my friend after her flight here. It was nice. Although the location was in the city it was still a little walk to and from the city centre (10-15mins) which wasn't too bad but can add up. There was limited/no parking nearby (only 1hr max) and once checked in, the staff didn't direct me where to go and I got lost, going to the wrong elevator (signage is not good and not straightforward) which meant that I had to take my luggage up and down a couple times before I finally found my room. Other than that it was a nice stay! The bathroom door isn't give much privacy just as an FYI but still was enough for the both enough to remind each other to not look when we were about to head to the shower or toilet, that was funny! I'd recommend for sure, just a few funny quirks.

    - It was definitely much cheaper than other apartment hotels in CBD. - Although it is located a few min away from the nearest tram station, we did not mind staying here as there are quite few restaurants and cafe around the area. - I did not use any facilities in the hotel (only reason i cant rate it as excellent) - The best is the friendly service! A staff named Ubay really helped with our check in and also helped with booking a day tour to Phillip Islands. Really helpful with his tips and also friendly :)

    My Favourite place to stay in Melbourne”

    I have been staying here since it first opened a few years ago as Cube serviced apartments and I love it even more that it is Fraser Place, the free wifi is a bonus and fast too, breakfast is very reasonable if you pre pay at only $16, there were a couple of small issues with the room, the bathroom sink was not draining well, mentioned it to reception on the way out for the day and it was fixed while I was out, after check out I emailed the General Manager about a problem with the water pressure and the poor quality pillows. I had a response within 24 hours and they are aware of the water problem and are onto it and the pillows they are currently sourcing different types to have on offer, the only thing lacking is a pool but it's not a deal breaker, favourite thing is that this must be the quietest laneway hotel in Melbourne, if you want to sleep in you certainly can, I love it.

    Wish it were longer”

    This was a quick visit to see friends, I love staying here, the place works like clockwork, Room 905 was not one of my favourite rooms as it looks into an internal void facing other rooms but it was ok with the sear curtains closed during the day and I was out mostly anyway, what I really love is how quiet Fraser Place is for central Melbourne, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchenette is handy if you want to take a simple meal home from the nearby supermarket. My only negative was the pillows are not good and I usually travel with my own pillow, this time I didn't as I travelled hand baggage only, my mistake and won't do it again. I thought the prepaid breakfast was excellent value at $16, must be prepaid at reception, it was a good honest breakfast nothing fancy, a hot buffet of 4 items, eggs, scrambed one day poached another, baked beans, mushrooms, Tomato, Hash Browns, sausages alternating daily with a selection of fruit, Yoghurt and good quality breads along with a really good selection of Nespresso Coffee for self service. My room rate was only $99 a night, will keep a eye out for that again, look forward to going back

    Cleanliness, Location, Staff

    This is our second stay at Fraser Place, the first time was 3 years ago. I would say our first stay was better as we managed to book the hotel at a cheaper price, breakfast inclusive. In 3 years the price has increased significantly, and does not include breakfast. The room we were given this time is also smaller than the first time. Nonetheless, we still chose to book Fraser because of it's cleanliness. The hotel is very well kept, from the lobby to the rooms. We liked the location too as it is in the CBD area and is also near Chinatown, which makes it easy to get food even later in the evening. Only slight problem with the location is that it does not face the main road, so whether it is taking the airport shuttle or the shuttle bus for day tours, we had to walk over to a bigger hotel facing the main road for the bus to pick us up. However, the pros of this is that we get to have quiet nights without hearing the noise of cars at night.

We had no view from our room but the curtain made sure a good sleep in the morning. We stayed only one night and haven't tried the food there. The overall experience was good, great value for money.
