              I enjoyed the layout and design elements of The Intercontinental. Also the room I stayed in was excellent.

              convenient location to see Melbourne

              Aaagh - rooms with no windows - resemblance to Melbourne Gaol is uncanny

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              the room was great and looked wonderful

              false advertisment...Room said it had two beds

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              The moderness of our room, as renovated only a few years ago. Staff very helpfull, unique hotel and location

              Desk pad was looking a little old due to pen marks and the basin in the bathroom, also had a few cracks (especially since it was only recently renovated) and the pillows were way too soft.

            • Couple
              9.6

              Every aspect was catered for and We loved it and will stay again!

              The bed is really comfy and the staffs are all friendly and helpful

              lack of carpark at the lobby area.

              No in room wi-Fi? Limited bar lounge facility

            • Older travelers
              8.0

              Liked the desk staff and valet staff.

              Thought the champagne in mini bar was a ridiculous price $68.00 Would have expected a full sized bath tub for the price.

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              Easy access to rooms and facilities.

              Over priced room for the size. No bath. TV was limited, no connection for media player or ipod.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Very comfortable and well designed room. Helpful staff. They coped easily with us checking in at 1am.

              When we went to our room, there were plates from someone's room service in the hall. It was still there at 1pm the next day when we left.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Lovely place, staff very friendly and helpful. the guy that met us at the front was freezing cold (it was almost snowing) but he never complained and couldn't do enough to help us. (he was tall with an english accent).

              thought it was a bit expensive for one night ($450). obviously other people can afford that but it will put us off staying at the Rialto. We could stay for a couple of nights somewhere else. I also left my charger there and i am surprised that I havent been contacted as I'm sure if I had accidentally taken something it would be a different story. Breakfast was delicious but luke warm as was the coffee. We had to ask 3 times for butter, ?why isn't it near the bread?

            • Couple
              8.8

              Very pretty hotel with good service and good breakfast.

              The lack of information given regarding payments of the hotel and bond. Hotel wasn't aware of our free breakfast which was included in the price until we asked them about it.

            • Couple
              9.6

              Fantastic buffet breakfast! Service in general was great and always made to feel welcome, nothing a hassle. Would love to return!
