Good price for the deluxe room

Posted Jun 27, 2017
Pros: Location and size of room
Cons: Disappointing to look out the window at heaps of pigeon poo on the atrium roof below
Location: Walk along Fitzroy St to find local cafes for breakfast - down past The George Hotel
The Prince was once a magnet for uber coolness but sadly the suburb seems to have lost its spark a little and the hotel is looking much older and somewhat empty.

Modern, chic hotel next to the Bandroom

Posted Jun 1, 2017 on Lastminute
Pros: The interior design was very nice and the bathroom was very clean.
Cons: You can tell that this used to be an old hotel by things like the elevator is very rickety (we thought it was going to break).
Location: Perfect to stay a night if you are going to the Bandroom next door. Also a very short walk to the beach.
My partner and I booked the Prince as we were attending a gig next door at the Bandroom. We were pleasantly surprised by how modern and chic the interior design was. The room was very nice and spacious with a beautiful bathroom.

Most unsettling hotel we've stayed at.

Posted Apr 20, 2017
Front desk staff were incompetent to say the least, gave out keycards to our room to 2 strangers so we had a very interrupted sleep and felt very unsettled. When we talked to desk staff he was not concerned and took no effort to improve our view of this hotel. Besides that the room was tidy and the location was pleasant. But ruined our stay being woken up.

Please allow me to sincerely apologise, as you are right. This is completely unacceptable and I will be following up with the front desk team. Thank you for providing your feedback so that we are able to improve.

Good things come in small packages

Posted Mar 28, 2017 on Hotels
The room was very clean and bed was very comfortable although the room was a bit small. Very convenient location with a 5 minute walk to the beach and many bars and restaurants in the area. The #96 tram from the stop out the front takes you to Albert park, South Melbourne markets, casino, CBD and Chinatown. We will stay again on our next trip.
