Welcome to Melbourne Central Hotels

Nestled in the heart of Melbourne's dynamic epicenter, Melbourne Central Hotel offers travellers an exceptional blend of luxury, comfort, and convenience.

Novotel is crafted for those with a penchant for elegance and sophistication. From the comforting embrace of the Standard Room with its king-size bed to the expansive luxury of the Junior Suite, every room resonates with a unique touch of class. Ibis, on the other hand, champions smart design and functionality. Whether it's the
efficiency of the compact rooms or the spacious Superior Rooms with varied bed options, guests are treated to a seamless blend of style and efficiency.

But our allure extends beyond the rooms. Two state-of-the-art conference rooms stand ready to facilitate seamless business discussions or memorable events. Fitness enthusiasts will appreciate our modern gym, ensuring that workout regimens remain uninterrupted, while food aficionados can indulge in the rich flavours of our Pretty Boy Italian Steakhouse, a culinary delight that marries authentic Italian tastes with the sumptuousness of steak.

The heart of our offering is undeniably our unmatched location. Positioned a mere 0.2 km from Melbourne Central Station, guests have the city's pulsating life right at their fingertips. Iconic landmarks like the sprawling Melbourne Central Shopping Centre and the cultural haven of the State Library Victoria are just a short stroll away. With such proximity to the city's attractions, guests at Melbourne Central Hotel are always in the midst of the action, even while enjoying the unparalleled comfort of our services.
