The hotel is being renovated. The section I stayed had already been renovated with modern finishes but with a heritage ambience. The hotel is located just off Swanston Street and is very conveinient to many attractions around the CBD. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a above average hotel at a reasonable price. Nice and stylish.

The location in the CBD is excellent. Although Melbourne has a really good tram system, we hardly used trams this trip because we could walk to most places of interest in the city (eg South Bank, Federation Square, Arts Centre, theatres, restaurants).

The refurbished 'heritage' rooms were OK (we stayed in two different rooms) and the rates were not bad for Melbourne, which is an expensive city for Europeans because of the current exchange rate. Even though newly refurbished, there was some fraying of carpets and the owners may regret not spending more on better quality, more durable furnishings and carpets. Staff were variable - some excellent, some rather clueless, but no real problems. Some interesting art deco features in public areas.

Room Tip: Always go for the refurbished 'heritage' rooms. Central location means can be noisy so ask f...

The Victoria is great value for money, right in Melbourne CBD. We stayed in the new Heritage Room and were upgraded when we arrived, from twin beds to a double and single. Much better than the cheaper rooms and had very large bathroom, which was a bonus. Only complaint was finding our room, which involved getting one lift then winding down a long corridor to get another lift to go up another 2 floors.
Also, to store baggage you have to pay for a locker - this used to be complimentary.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the Heritage rooms

I stayed in Victoria Hotel with a friend during Jan 27 2011 - Dec 3 2012. Hotel is located in the very heart of Melbourne CBD, but being on the Lt Bourke St it is, in a way, hidden from all the noise and crowds. It takes 5 min to walk to Fed Square and approx. 25 min to Queen Victoria Markets; Bourke St Mall is across the road, as are bus and tram stops. So if you are there to evolve in a 'big city life' and explore all that Melbourne CBD has to offer, or for a festive season (which was our case) than it's a perfect location.
Unfortunately, 'perfect' and 'great' about the place ends here. We booked a twin room, and the one we got was in a separate wing, so we had to walk through the whole flour and a dodgy connecting bridge to get to it. And that whole wing was really old, I doubt it has ever been renovated properly. Room/bathroom were tiny and not new either. Limited storage space; all regular facilities were there (kettle, iron board etc.). Internet was not free, and to our surprise we also had to pay for a storage cabin for our luggage (we had few hours between check out and our flight). Another weird thing was milk which they've given us at reception... Though I should acknowledge that our room was ready on arrival, which was few hours earlier that the official check-in time. Room service was Ok.
With respect to the NYE celebrations, there were none at the hotel, and there was no roof access to watch the fireworks (we new that in advance though, and spent the night elsewhere).
