Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
A grand building of the Victorian era with a gorgeous dome and excellent facilities.
With a day to spare in Melbourne I decided to visit the library. The changing face of Victoria exhibition was excellent. I enjoyed seeing Ned Kelly artifacts too.
Later I visited the geneology section where I was helped by a very knowledgeable lady.
We saw the Triennale in the National Gallery on St Kilda Road, but were not aware there was a second location, the Ian Potter Center. Luckily, we bumped into it. A great collection of Australian art, both contemporary and somewhat older.
Also loved the building, on the beautiful Federation Square.
Wished I'd had a lot more time to stay at ACMI - there are always really cool exhibitions on here. Something for the young, and the young at heart, as well as those of us who are a little more "conservative/old"!
Very good and perfect for foodie friends catch up. Maybe a few more wines by glass, or some wine 'specials' with some interesting Spanish stuff (there's loads, obviously....). And I like to see the jamon on display!!! Minor quibble.
Nice to be pleasantly surprised by a hotel which doesn't happen often in terms of staff approach, room size and layout as well as the complimentary bar and choccies. I'll definitely be staying at Adelphi any time I'm next in Melbourne.
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel very much. Great location, really nice rooms. What made it particularly special was the staff, which was very attentive and helpful. I booked directly with the hotel so I got breakfast included, which was great - it was a full breakfast including a make-your-own pancake machine. I recommend this hotel highly and will...
We stayed here for New Years. the hotel and staff were great! We stayed for 5 nights and everyone treated us so well. The only negative I would point out is the room service...I didn't think the food was good. But the food at the restaurant and upstairs were good.
My wife and I stayed for 4 days and found the quality of service from the staff first rate at all levels, even the guy delivering the newspapers at 6am went out of his way to help me find the gym. Very friendly. The restaurant was also very good.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Alto Hotel. It's a great location, comfy room and friendly staff. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They even tried to teach us Australian terminology. :) They also gave us a great dinner recommendation. I highly recommend this hotel.
