The Victoria Hotel Melbourne is an affordable 3 ½ star hotel right in the heart of the CBD. It combines late 1800s grandeur with contemporary comfort, and is located in Little Collins Street amidst great shopping and entertainment.
As one of the original Melbourne hotels, it opened in November 1880 under the name of Victoria Coffee Palace - a dry hotel: no alcohol, but Beef Tea, mineral water and coffee - but with a Smoking Room. It was the first Melbourne hotel with electric lights in its rooms.
The Vic was a luxury hotel in the 20s and 30s and had porters meet you at Spencer Street Railway Station or at your overseas liner in Port Melbourne. During W.W.II it was occupied by the American Army. Then it was used during the 1956 Melbourne Olympics for IOC banquets, and in 2006 the Victoria Hotel housed Australian officials for the Commonwealth Games.
Today, it is a hotel with character and modern facilities with an indoor pool, spa, sauna and gym overlooking the Melbourne city, high speed internet, and a value for money Restaurant and bar.
