We stayed near Southern Cross Station on our recent visit to Melbourne. This is the view from our hotel apartment in the Grand Hotel Melbourne MGallery. It was really convenient to be so close to the station and a short walk to the shops.
The hotel is in the old Railway Adminstration Building. Unfortunately I didn’t take any close up photos of the exterior but it is a magnificent building. There are some photos of the exterior on the hotel website.
Part of the building is hotel and the remainder is apartments. I was intrigued by the gates which I think may separate the apartments from the hotel.
We had a very comfortable stay in the hotel and would certainly stay there again.
