Disappointing that breakfast is no longer a buffet. Room was fine though bathroom and powder room had a few stray hairs lying around.

The Royce, is usually my go to when I'm in Melbourne every month - when I can get in and its not overpriced at peak times, which I feel is unfair for the regulars that support the hotel with over 12 stays a year. Overall I love staying at the hotel but would love a solution around loyalty at any time of the year.

Classic Charm

The Royce hotel is a modern but classic elegant hotel. It is close to the major city attractions. Very easy to get to in an Uber. The room was immaculate and had all the comforts you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

Charming Old World Hotel

Pros: Beautifully clean room, especially the bathroom, and very comfortable bed.
Cons: The air-conditioning was really noisy when it cranked up. Sounded as though there was a loose part in there somewhere.
Location: The tram was virtually right outside the hotel, and was an interchange for many different lines. Really easy getting to the CBD or St Kilda.
Finding the Royce was a delight! I didn't know til I arrived that it used to be a Rolls Royce showroom... this may explain the abundance of mirrors in the foyer! A bit garish, but it seemed to fit the feel of the place. The room was excellent, very clean and comfortable. I'd booked a balcony room, but was surprised to find the balcony was more like a walled-in corridor which ran the whole front of the building. To actually see the view you had to stand on a chair and look over the wall! It didn't spoil the experience though, and as the tram was practically right outside the hotel, it was so easy going to either the city or St Kilda. It might be a bit overpriced for what you get but overall, I'd recommend it.
