Holiday Inn Melbourne on Flinders Video Review
Holiday Inn Melbourne on Flinders lane is rated as a 4 ½ star hotel in Melbourne (as per Holiday Inn’s website). Located on the corner of Flinders Lane and Spencer Street in the CBD, it’s only a short walk to Southern Cross station as well there’s a tram line that runs in front of the hotel. It’s walking distance to the Yarra River and the Crown Casino. For other tourist attractions in Melbourne please watch my video at the bottom of the page.
On the ground floor is the Sirocco Restaurant and Bar. The food here is quite nice. I’ve shown more on my video review of the Holiday Inn. So please watch that for a better idea. I also tried their in room dining one night, again see the video. For breakfast they do have a buffet style breakfast. For the menu at the restaurant please see video or the hotel’s own website for latest updates and prices.
The hotel has its own gym and outdoor swimming pool.
The hotel’s rooms have recently been renovated (finished in 2017). In the video I show how it looked previously and how the rooms look now. The rooms really needed an update, and the newly renovation gives these rooms a fresh and modern feel. I really like the huge window that face onto Spencer Street (not all rooms have this view). With the rooms you get usual amenities – mini bar, in room safe, wardrobe (with iron and ironing board), tea and coffee making facilities. There is free Wi-Fi but you will need to join the IHG rewards club (free to join), otherwise you will have to pay for it. For the best rates at the Holiday Inn Melbourne, check directly with hotel or comparison booking sites such as Trivago, Hotelscombined or even TripAdvisor.
