Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Contemporary rooms with flat-screen swivel TVs and "media hubs" for laptop-to-TV hookup
  • Rooftop plunge pool and Jacuzzi in atrium setting
  • Sauna
  • Fitness center with floor-to-ceiling windows and city views
  • Laundry facilities
  • Restaurant serves all three meals and offers al fresco dining
  • 24-hour room service available
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Most sights require a drive to reach

Bottom Line

The 206-room Parkview Hotel is a solid upper-middle-range option south of Melbourne's city center. The hotel overlooks Albert Park, but reaching most sights will require a drive. Room decor is contemporary if chain-like: It's a step above what one might find at a Holiday Inn, and includes with red striped bedding accents, IKEA-esque furniture, and work desks. Modern bathrooms have big walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads. All rooms have swivel flat-screen TVs with laptop hookups that are inset in the entertainment units, as well as free Wi-Fi. Hotel features include a small fitness center with floor-to-ceiling windows and city views; a jetted rooftop plunge pool and Jacuzzi under a domed glass ceiling, a sauna, and laundry facilities -- all adding to its value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

South of Melbourne's city center, on Albert Park

The Parkview Hotel is located south of Melbourne's City Centre, overlooking Albert Park. Most major sights will require a drive, though South Yarra is a 30-minute walk, for guests who don't mind a trek.

Melbourne may be Australia's second largest city (with four million residents), but it's the country's cultural capital. It's situated on Port Phillip Bay, and packed with Victorian buildings, museums, galleries, large parks, and gardens. The tree-lined streets and green spaces create a clean, eco-friendly vibe, which might be a reason why Melbourne has consistently been dubbed as one of the world's most livable cities.

  • 27-minute drive to Tullamarine International Airport (main airport)
  • 46-minute drive to the Avalon Airport
  • 2-minute walk to Albert Park
  • 30-minute walk or 5-minute drive to South Yarra, home to high-end shops and restaurants
  • 6-minute drive to the National Gallery of Victoria
  • 6-minute drive to the Royal Botanic Gardens
  • 8-minute drive to the Eureka Skydeck 88 with sweeping city views
  • 9-minute drive to the Melbourne Aquarium
  • 10-minute drive to the Bourke Street Mall
  • 11-minute drive to Federation Square
  • 12-minute drive to the Etihad Stadium
  • 13-minute drive to the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Center
  • 13-minute drive to the Queen Victoria Market
