“Great little hotel for Melbourne trip”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Citadines is really central, great price, we had a studio which is was plenty big enough for two people. The lifts are a bit quirky going up, sometimes the cards dont' work but other than that it was fantastic. Great staff, fast check in and out, nice lobby. What more could you want?

I recently stayed at Citadenes on Bourke and can highly recommend it. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and it was beautifully maintained. While an error was made with the type of room (fault of the travel agency, not Citadenes) the staff were more than helpful in resolving the problem, at no extra cost to us. Location is excellent.

Room Tip: Just be aware that a one bedroom apartment only has a queen bed. Twin beds not available. The studio...

Clean, quiet room but no "atmosphere", there just didn't seem to be any character to the place and was so quiet it felt almost a lonely place to be.
Has what's needed for a business traveller who's there to work & sleep but the room I was in was not a pleasant place to sit in to enjoy a quiet drink before heading out for shopping, sight seeing, whatever. I guess you could call the place "functional" rather than it being a piece in the whole collection of experiences that makes for a memorable holiday.
This room did not have any view, curtains had to remain closed due to private apartment rear balconies looking right into the room from approx 10 metres (30ft) away.
Room has small but modern functional kitchenette facilities but no bathroom toiletries due to it's status as an apartment hotel room, although I've stayed in many such "apartment hotels" that have provided the same provisions as a standard hotel.
Shower is in the same space as the toilet but the hand basin is outside in the actual bedroom area so one person relaxing on the couch will be disturbed by splashing and hair drying that takes place at the basin for instance. Also, water from the shower is not contained within the recess even despite the glass shower screen door. The bath mat is sodden wet by the time you step out with water pooling all around the toilet.
If the room is occupied by two people they only supply one towel per person, one bathmat, one hand towel. No provision for a 2nd towel which is inconvenient and not consistent with most other places I've stayed. Face washer, shower caps etc not supplied.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the city. Lower floors mean you have to keep the curtains drawn for privac...

Stayed at Citadines on Bourke for 2 nights during the Easter break.
I have to say the location is fantastic, and the hotel facilities such as its gym and the lap pool, were a very nice surprise to me!!!

Stayed here in March 2012. A standard room with a double bed on a high floor- view of the city was great. Some will not like the minimalist furnishing, but I was fine with that. The kitchenette was very well equip, with pots, pans, crockery and cutlery.
The shower itself was large but basin was outside the bathroom- which makes the room look bigger but the bathroom rather small. There was free wifi and also 3 desktop computers which could be used in the foyer. There is a tram stop right outside the hotel so very convenient
