The Best Boutique Hotels Melbourne


Lancemore Crossley St

Hidden away in a quiet side street is this four-star contemporary hotel that oozes cool with its sleek minimalism design. Despite being five stories high, the views from the sunlit rooftop are undisrupted and proves a perfect escape from bustling streets below. 



The Cullen

Describing itself as “daring and unique, bold and brash” this Prahran-based hotel is named after and inspired-by late Australian artist, Adam Cullen. Part of Accor’s art series, rooms feature fully equipped kitchenettes for those who like the amenities of home, while the hotel features skyline views, two restaurants and gym.



Hotel No (Notel)

Why would we recommend a caravan when you’re looking for a hotel? Because this unique Melbourne accommodation is like No other, in the best way possible, and is precisely why it’s called Hotel No or Notel for short. Sitting on the rooftop of a CBD carpark (stay with us…) 1970s Airstream caravans have been transformed into chic and roomy spaces complete with rainfall showerheads and free mini bars.




Voted the best Boutique Hotel in not just Melbourne, but the state of Victoria, the Adelphi should be high on your hotel hit list. With just 34 ecclectic rooms, complete with rainfall showers, king beds and mini bars stocked with free treats, you’ll feel absolutely spoilt staying here.
