          Decent location, 20 min walk from CBD and 10 min walk to CBD free loop tram and paid trams right outside the door. Rooms clean and comfortable. Bar downstairs friendly.

          Bar downstairs a little noisy quite late into the evening.

          Service is good.. Crew is helping us to get another hotel due to system issue, cant retrieve our previous booking.. Thanks alot

          Since the bar is only downstair, its hard to get sleep before midnight..

          The bed was comfortable and the room was clean The building is old but well refurbished. It is close to public transport.

          This is a pub, not a hotel. There is not 24 hour reception as listed, except they call, ring this mobile number after hours as 24 hour reception.

          The BPH is a wonderful value for the money. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the hotel is centrally located. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again.

          The food in the bar is very nice. The rooms are ok.

          The cleaner is rude, swears loudly and often in the hallway and doesn't even clean your room as he's 'too busy' The WiFi only works in certain areas.

          We r very thankful to the hotel about its understanding n care, eg. we checking in suppose to b 4pm but we arrived 11.30am due to city hotel check out 10am, our luggate allow to brought in hotel earlier, somemore we check out 11am but our flight at night , hotel lets us kept our luggate till 9pm for taxi to take us to airport, tq v. much. If possible,we wil recommend to friends n relatives if they tends to go to Melbourne.

          If can provide or arrange with custom's own cost cab to Victoria St. for dinner n secondly sent to tram station or city in the morning much more better, added value to hotel n customer as well!

          The main reason for my staying at the hotel was because it was handy to the Peter Mac Cancer centre where i was having treatment. The price was excellent as I was not looking for all the "bells and whistles" as I only needed the basic bed and cup of tea. I think it was ideal for my purposes and will be staying there again when I return to Peter Mac for more treatment. I have also recommended it to Peter Mac accommodation staff for their consideration when advising patients about accommodation.

          The staff was very friendly and ready to help. The restaurant-bar under the hotel is very nice.

          The first room we got had no bathroom door, which is rather uncomfortable if you travel as couple. The wall between rooms was paper thin, so we could hear all what happened in the room next to us. The hotel also didn't have our Booked.net reservation, so we were lucky to get a room.

          Staff were friendly, room was very clean, the pub itself was lovely, location was excellent - close to shops, bars and restaurants. Late access door was very convenient. Some people might find the street noise annoying as the room overlooks busy Victoria Parade but it didn't really bother us.

          People were really nice and the concept and design were nice too.

          The food was excellent and most of the staff friendly and courteous.

          The appaling noise ate 3.30 A.M. on the first night and 12.30 A.M. the second which turned out not to be a live band but the staff amusing themselves. Outrageous! I will attempt to paste in here the letter I have sent to the owner of the hotel. Tuesday, 20 November 2012 8:40 PM Dear Mr Forte I hope I am correctly addressing this letter to the person responsible for the operation of the Baden Powell Hotel. As you are probably now aware, my wife and I stayed at the hotel on the nights of Friday 16 November and Saturday 17 November 2012. We chose the Baden Powell because of the fulsome reviews by former guests of the food served at the hotel together with its near proximity to the Dallas Brooks Centre, where I was to be one of 500 choristers from 11 choirs singing in a concert on Saturday afternoon. Upon our arrival at approximately 1.30 p.m. on Friday afternoon we had lunch at the hotel while we waited to check in. The food was excellent and the staff both friendly and courteous. I was surprised, however, to be advised that it was necessary for me to pay the full $250 for our two-night stay before we could be checked in. In my opinion as a matter of courtesy this requirement should have been indicated to prospective guests - as well as the insistence upon a 1 cent advance payment by credit card – on the websites advertising the Baden Powell to visitors to Melbourne. The Booked.net website, for example, reads: “Please note that Baden Powell Hotel requires a credit card pre-authorisation upon check in. Cash is not an acceptable form of payment at this hotel, and you are kindly requested to present a valid credit card upon arrival.” No mention of payment upon arrival at the hotel or a 1-cent advance by credit card paid separately. Nevertheless, the room we were allocated seemed to represent fair value and we were happy with the location and the standard of cuisine.

          I really really was wrapped about the spa bath!

          I was extremely disappointed that the spa bath didn't have a plug so that I could use it!

          No hotel services at all - no cleaning, no lugage storage, no changing of towels, no information/personal service the toilet was completely open without a door and could be seen from the bed

          price and location

          They left the stairwell door open after 12:00 . I had to get out of bed and close it because the noise from music and stacking chairs downstairs kept me awake. It was also quite noisy on thursady night but you would expect that from that sort of pub so thats OK

        • Single
          7.8

          Convenience to the city, and the food in the bar

          Double glazing on the windows would cut down a lot of noise from the road
