Editorial review:

Sebel And Citigate Albert Park Melb is two chain properties occupying the same address. The Citigate’s 3-1/2 star rooms are new and neat.

                location and breakfast

                We ordered a paper both mornings and didnt receive this. When we checked out we were asked to pay the full room rate which was already paid for prior to our arrival. Staff could not find reservation from Booked.net. We were also expected to pay for Breakfast which was also paid. Not a nice experience with your hotel and we won't stay again.

              • Couple
                10.0

                The staff at the Citigate Albert Park were fantastic, very friendly and accommodating.

                The proximity to Albert Park for the Grand Prix

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                We stayed in a two-floor loft. This was excellent because it allowed me to watch tv without disturbing my wife who hates it! The bed was very comfortable.

                (1) The decor of the accommodation was bleak and colourless. (2) The sofa and other chairs were uncomfortable as they had no backs. Obviously designed for a business meeting! (3) The relatively high cost of the room should have included a daily newspaper instead of charging $1.30 for them! To use a North American term we felt that we were being "nickel and dimed", meaning that trivial items were not thrown in with the overall and relatively high cost. (4) The restaurant was VERY expensive. Breakfasts were good but otherwise the menu was dull. Who ever heard of pumpkin soup, offered at $15, being served EVERY day!! This is the cheapest & most boring of soups. When there is a dearth of local restaurants it is essential that your offerings are both excellent and reasonably priced. After the first experience we went elsewhere, (or just had a salad) although we would have preferred, had the food been better, not to have ventured forth into the outside cold and wet. Your prices are too high because of the large number of employees; I counted eight waiters one evening. Service was generally slow and for one breakfast there was a black hair in the scrambled eggs. My wife suggested that I should have saved it and got a free breakfast. In view of the subsequent costs I should have followed her advice!!

                Fantastic location, really clean and comfortable accommodation, great food and helpful staff what more could you ask? Also close to tram to all city sights

                A gust laundry would be nice

              • Couple
                5.0

                Worst hotel ever stayed at. Spa and pool not clean, did not discribe that had to stand out font for a smoke. Not worth the money and very small rooms, shower over bath damaged.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Fresh openess of the Ground Floor entry and facilities, complemented by friendly and obliging staff. Quiet room, uninterrupted sleep.

                Room did not have the facilities we wanted (kitchenette), and believed we were paying for at the time of making the booking. Subsequent reading of feedback from other guests, confirms our experience not to be unique in this regard.

                9.2

                Great location, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.

                I did not believe the seafood buffet was value for money, lacked variety and crab was not fresh, but oysters were excellent.

                9.2

                The location was an excellent compromise between CBD and seaside and on the edge of a park. Good local transport

                Restaurant costs were a little high but alternatives were available

                Nice, big room and bath with comfortable bed; excellent breakfast buffet; friendly and helpful staff; one short block from tram stop.

                Nearest convenience store/ATM was 10-15 min walk...no other shops nearby.

                we were upgraded on arrival for a saturday night stay, the place has been refurbished and its looks great, stylish and updated compared to what it used to be, would definately stay at this place again, staff very friendly, great location for shopping in Chapel St, & St Kilda and not very far at all from the Crown casino & the CBD.
