We loved staying at The Chen - Boxhill. The room was modern, ultra clean and felt luxurious. The bed was very comfortable, plenty of storage for clothes and suitcases and extra pillows/blankets available in the room. We'll be back!

I was surprised that The Chen was a mixture of residential apartments and hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean. Great comfy bed and pillows! The bathroom was very small but not a problem for a short stay. The only negative was the traffic noise from ambulance sirens

Great location and great views. Just needs the free to air HD channels to work at night in my room. Either were fuzzing or blacked out for some reasons. Maybe have Fetch TV with Premier League would be nice. Otherwise it was a very pleasant stay.

Hi! I usually get a taxi or an Uber. You can ask the reception to book you a fixed rate of $88 taxi from The Chen, Box Hill to the airport. Regardless of the traffic condition the rate will be the same. Or you can take the train and jump off to Flinders station, from there take the Sky Bus. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your question. Epworth is a short 4 minute walk from the hotel. The area is very safe to take the scroll. There is also taxis availble in the area if you would prefer. Kind Regards Colin Stevenson General Manager
