We had a wonderful 3 day break from our hectic Sydney life. The service, staff and experience was great and the location of the hotel was within walking distance to all theatres, fine restaurants and bars. We will certainly be returning to The Hotel Windsor.

Lovely old Hotel and enjoyed the old fashioned service. Didn't get to see the Ballroom as it was all closed up. It's lovely to see that all the old fashioned service has been retained in such a busy and throwaway Society that we belong to now.

I love this hotel. I have always wanted to stay here for a night to experience the old style charm of this beautiful building. I loved it, my favourite hotel in Melbourne.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance.
