The Royce provides excellent quality accommodation in very well appointed rooms. The Dish restauant has a great menu and the service and food quality is exceptional. The Amber Room has a great atmosphere and is an ideal place to relax with friends or colleagues after work for a well deserved drink. Highly recommended.

Top floor, rooms with balconys are great. Very close to the botanic gardens and domain area, great spot to stay if you are going to a show in the gardens. Tram stop close by. Slight downside is no parking if you have a car.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and, overall, it was a nice experience. Although there were aspects I really liked about the hotel, I probably wouldn't stay again. So, what I liked were the location - it's great that it's in a nice part of town without being in the city itself. There are trams running past the...

We stayed two nights and I couldn't fault it, we have paid a lot more for lesser quality. The rooms were quiet, no guest noise and no road noise, but right on St Kilda road. The staff were excellent, attentive and service focused, the best quality staff we have seen anywhere. I think this is my new favourite place to...

Not a bad spot to stay for a city weekend away. The rooms were spacious and clean, with comfortable beds and pillows. However, no assistance was offered to show you to your room or bring your bags. The valet parking was great and the guys there very helpful. No assistance in orientation (still don't know where the gym is) or...

Just jump on a tram to get here - easy as! Handy to AAMI Stadium for the Bruce Springsteen concert if you are happy to wander the city back streets.

I had to stay here for a business trip, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! From the friendly staff to the well-decorated rooms, this hotel was roomy, comfortable and well designed. We also had dinner at the in-house restaurant, which was lovely as well! Easily recommend to anyone thinking of staying here.

This hotel was good and has a breakfast buffet. Rooms are functional and a good size. I was quite disappointed when I asked for a late checkout and was told 12 noon was possible and then anything later would be charged at $40 per hour. The manager told that they were at 100% occupancy, so I didn't understand how they...

The Royce is a lovely building located on a relatively quiet stretch of St Kilda Road, with parkland nearby. The door was opened for us by a member of staff returning to the Reception, but there is not a doorman. Check-in was easy enough and we were directed to our room. There was no offer to carry our baggage or...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience Melbourne's designer boutique hotel, perfectly located on St.Kilda Road next to the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens. The CBD, Southbank precinct, Melbourne's art and theatre district and the fashionable Chapel Street are all within a short tram ride away. The hotel features a lounge bar, award winning restaurant, private outdoor courtyard, business area and meeting facilities. Once renowned as Australia's most glamorous automobile showroom in the 1920s, the Royce housed prestige vehicles such as the Rolls Royce. While the exterior of the historical building retains its classical features, the architects and designers have redesigned a modern and chic interior to suit the discerning traveller. They have depicted a unique accommodation experience by creating a hotel that is distinctively different from any other. ... more   less
