Wanted to let the TA community know that unfortunately this hotel is closing as of tomorrow - if you visit their site, hatton.com.au, you'll be directed to a hotel nearby. I feel very very sad as the Hatton was our home away from home in Melbourne and we loved everything about it. We'll miss the wonderful breakfasts on the balcony, evening drinks on the roof, and the spare elegance of the polished boards and simple old furniture. This place really worked, and I'm very sorry to see it go. Vale Hatton.

A beautiful historic hotel in South Yarra with a very convenient tram stop right at the door, providing easy access into central Melbourne. Friendly and helpful staff, and a very good continental breakfast. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom - only bad point was that the mini bar fridge was surprisingly loud at night.
We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely hotel in one of the nicest streets in South Yarra just off the Botanical Gardens - and with a tram stop just outside the door, so easy access into central Melbourne. Friendly and helpful staff, and a very good continental breakfast. The only small problem was no lift, so perhaps don't stay in one of the upper bedrooms if you have excess baggage as we did. Our room was fairly simple but spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom - windows opened which was a bonus. The hotel offered free wifi and an ipad downstairs in the reception/breakfast area.
Just a short walk down the road are a good choice of restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay there again.

We were sent to room 6, a small room in the back basement section near the rubbish bins. Paint peeling from the bathroom ceiling, a mini refrigerator near the bed that was so noisy that it had to be unplugged at night so we could sleep. Getting in and out of the bathtub/shower was problematic - it is set very high! The water temp varied every time you showered from hot to cold and the bathroom was so small it was difficult to close the door without almost sitting on the toilet.
Wi-Fi was free and available in the rooms, although it dropped out occasionally. The breakfast was served in the nice front lobby room and was more than satisfactory. As other reviewers have mentioned, at times when speaking to staff you felt like you were interrupting their conversations, texting or internet searching. It's a shame, as the building with its grand Italianate facade welcomes you with a wow factor that unfortunately stops there. Pity, its position and history could really make a positive mark. The hotel was worth about half of what we paid for the room.

Stayed for three nights to take in the sights of Melbourne and catch up its friends. The Hatton is a boutique hotel in a historic building in South Yarra just outside the Melbourne CBD. Great location with lovely parks at either end of the street, there is a tram stop outside and is only a few stops from the CBD - also stops at the Arts Precinct and Flinders Street Station. Also easy to get the tram to St Kilda and other parts of the city. If you have a car they do have 4 spaces at the back of the hotel - available on a first come basis so can be quite competitive and a problem if you don't get one and need to move your car from street paking every two hours. Our room was on the first level and towards the back. It had a small window looking out on to greenery and was quite well appointed with a sink, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities and plates, cutlery etc... The bathroom was compact and clean with all you really need without offering much in the way of special - water pressure was a bit low and the hot water fairly variable. Good linen, amenities and plenty of character, but the usual creaks and noises you often get with timber floors and historic buildings. The hotel has a small cafe/bar/breakfast room at the front of the hotel with a few table inside and on the front veranda - ok breakfast included in the room rate and really handy if you don't feel like heading out. There are restaurants, cafes and convenience stores within walking distance and the area is lovely. Would recommend to those who like historic boutique hotels close to but not right in the city centre - we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor might be quieter, but there is no lift so go for a lower level room if you don't want to lug heavy luggage up stairs.
