Historical Traveller Reviews of Mercure Hotel Welcome
Could not do better.from LakesEntrance
Apart from that it was okay for the price, the best thing about this hotel is the breakfast, which is usually included in your room rate. My advise, pay the extra few dollars and stay at the Mercure on Swanston or the Grand.
Great locationfrom RosesandViolets
Unexpectedly Goodfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great Valuefrom G.Higgins
Not that bad for the price!from expensive_pink
All in all, I thought it wasn't bad for the price we paid (only $119 AU a night), and the location was great, close to everything in the city, and near trams to go to St Kilda, Chapel St, Carlton etc. I think I would stay there again.
OK, in a hurryfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room was still small (much smaller than the Superior room we had had on our last stay) and there was one bed instead of the twin beds we had requested. However, the place wasn't so noisy and we had a nice view of Chinatown. The lifts are still incredibly slow though!
Mecure Welcome, stay away from!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Poor Hotel and service all round...from mel82au
But, the worst service we received was when we valet parked our car. We were directed around the side of the hotel where we were told to park the car to the side of the alley way. We were given a ticket, thinking the car would be placed in a more secure environment. When we left for the theatre our taxi drove by the alley way where our car had been moved 5metres up facing a public street with the nose on the footpath for people to walk around. When returning the car was still in the same spot!? We handed our ticket in and were told to take a seat, 30 minutes later and with a gentle reminder that we were still here our car keys were simply taken out of a drawer and handed to us. We were REALLY tired and simply wanted to go, so we didn't make a fuss again.
The next day when we checked out and were extremely surprised/shocked at the $29 valet parking fee. I couldn't believe we paid someone almost thirty dollars for them to move a car 5 metres where ANYONE could have walked by and damaged it. The receptionist(actual 'manager'), completely unsympathetic to our concerns told us the alley way is private property. Yet anyone could have walked by, knocked into, or stolen something from the wrx and quickly vanished being it nosing a footpath. They DO have a sercure parking area but i'm assuming it was simply more convenient for them to park it there. In the future i suggest anyone to use the carpark 150 metres up, it's cheaper and you're car will be a lot more secure.
good location, very very very average roomsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
It is no a 3star at all. To me, 3 star implies newish fittings (5yr or less), clean sheets daily, and a bit of a decent feel.
These rooms have aircons, fridges and beds that are wlel over 5yrs old. The bathroom tiles must be over 10yrs old. No locks on bathroom doors, just a latch. Air con is extremely noisy.
Bedrooms are very small. I asked for a quiet room, and got one away from the lifts which was good. However you can still hear everything in anyone above, below or in the next room sneezes or comes and goes.
We were there 4 nights..bedsheets changed twice.
The location is great, but Melbourne is not that big a city to really worry too much about location, and with the tram system you can get much better hotels on every level.
I got a deal for $105 per night which I thought was good. Realistically it was probably worth $80 a night.
As a tip, you do not need to pay $14 for the buffet breakfast. Its average..and there is a great pancake parlor across the road with awesome breakfasts.
Top Local Tips for Melbourne
You must go to Bridge Road! Bridge Road is home of the discount clothing outlet stores. www.bridgerd.com.au Excellent value - you'll need to buy an extra bag to bring it all home.
See the Museum!!! The Melbourne Museum of Science & History is absolutely one of the best I have ever been too. Because we were over 60 we got in FREE! Be sure and ask if they don't offer. Very politely we were asked if we might qualify. We were there for two and a half hours and only visited the exhibit on Australia. It was wonderful! Wish we had been able to go back and see the rest of the exhibits. Very modern beautiful building. While I found no information about the Museum at our hotel, the concierge recommended it and he was absolutely correct!
Trams If you plan ahead and know what number trams you need to catch, also write down what stop number to get off at - I found most Tram drivers did not annouce each Tram stop.
