The location is within walking distance of a wide range of shopping and eating places. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite a good size but the fittings and the hotel need a bit of a make-over. The buffet was pretty good but if you prefer, you can pick up a good breakfast at a number...

The Grand Chancellor has a fine location within walking distance of parks, a free tram and airport shuttles. The entrance and reception areas are indeed grand, and the breakfast room is spacious as well. Check-in was efficient and friendly. The hotel is a bit 'faded' but exactly suited my purposes after a long jet-lagged flight. My room was suitably large...

Grand chancellor is located around the central of Melbourne and walkable to every places. Just behind grand chancellor is chinatown and there are many food there. Walk down the street to Melbourne central or QV takes just 5-10mins. The room are great and well furnish. Every thing you need are there.

King rooms facing the street on low levels way to noisy- too much traffic that runs all night. Staff not so accomodating to requests to change rooms to higher level or non street facing rooms. I know it's the middle of the city but a little empathy and a little effort would go along way.

I have stayed in the past at the Hotel mainly because of its location; but I think that the services were poorer this time and the people at the hotel entrance really unfriendly (with the exception of the female staff). It could have been so much better.

For the price/service ratio this is a very good hotel although we had issues with the wi fi password, The roof top pool is the stuff of high end resorts and it was pleasing to get free newspaper and breakfast for the price we paid (about $150pn)

We stayed here from 18th to 23rd Nov 2016. Chancellor is extremely well situated, with very friendly staff, heated rooftop pool, gym, generous breakfast, nice ambiance restaurant. Around the corner is Her Majesty's Theater ... really great place to start exploring Melbourne. Room (807) was on the generous size, very clean and with very comfortable bed. Got a nice sleep...

Room on the 6th floor at the front of the hotel was a little noisy at night. The room it self I could not fault. The hotel is in an amazing location, so close to evrything from restaurants, night life, live theatres and my favourite Bar 1806. Transport system in melbourne is second to none.

The room was excellent, the hotel was beautiful and the amenities were great. It was a wonderful stay for a romantic trip. The bed was comfy and having a fridge was very helpful so we could keep any drinks or food we needed.

Great location close to everything. Needs A ramp for luggage not just steps for access to lobby. Staff friendly and helpful . Rooms could do with refurbish especially bathroom. Uncomfortable beds needs replacing. If these changes are made would be a great little hotel

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
