When staying in Melbourne location is key… The city is pretty big and if you find yourself too far from the action it can have a really negative impact on your holiday. No one wants that right? This will certainly not be an issue if you decide to stay at Arrow on Spencer.
This hotel was formerly known as Harbour View Apartment Hotel and is one of Melbourne’s most popular hotel options right in the CBD. It is conveniently located right next to Southern Cross Station so going to and from the Victorian airport by train or Airport shuttle is a breeze. The train station in no way impacts your stay at the hotel either with no noise to be heard.
The rooms themselves in Arrow on Spencer are exactly what you would expect from a 4* hotel, extremely clean fresh and comfortable. The beds themselves were up there with the most comfortable mattress, pillows and cover I had ever slept in. The bathroom keeps the standard flowing through the whole room with great facilities. The rooms can be cleaned each day if desired, with fresh towels available as well.
Room service options are available if you decide the need to stay in rather than eat at one of the thousands of options you have at your disposal. Air-conditioning and Wi-Fi are also located in the room as well as a flat-screen TV. There is onsite parking that is available to guests at an extra cost but a valuable addition and an affordable option when compared to other parking options in the city.
The reception area and overall staff at Arrow on Spencer are extremely friendly and only too happy to assist making your stay the best it can be. They are open 24 hours a day and can store luggage for you after check-out or before check-in.
From Arrow on Spencer you pretty much have Melbourne at your fingertips, whether you desire to watch an AFL or A league football match, visit the famous Queen Street Victoria Market, Federation Square, Flemington Racecourse, shop in the CBD or head to St Kilda beach it is all possible right from the hotel doorstep. The free tram stop is located right outside the main hotel entrance.
This is location, location, location accompanied with class, comfort and style. Where can you possibly go wrong! You wouldn’t believe the horrendous accommodation option I choose before making the right choice with Arrow on Spencer, I might even feature that in my blog one day soon.
Don’t be like me, book the right accommodation from the start here. Enjoy your trip to Melbourne, it really is a great city to visit and if you plan it well enough you might even have the privilege of watching the Richmond Tigers run out onto the MCG.
