Terrible Hotel
Stayed at Voco in Melbourne with my sister. The service was worst than I’ve ever experienced ordered a bucket of ice waited 1.5 hours then called to see where it was. Not in the system waited another 1 hour finally got the ice (got charged for the ice) again happened with a coffee in the mornjng. Ordered through room service at 6.30am called after waiting over an hour then they sent it to me saying it was a broken machine issue it arrived another 45min later. No apologies and they even charged me $11 I have never been so disappointed with a hotel. After paying close to $600 a night you just expect much better customer service

Great location, tiny rooms
Service was very good, breakfast was excellent, and locations is perfect. My only complaint is the rooms are tiny, and the individual beds are not particularly comfortable.

Perfect hideaway in the heart of the CBD
Tucked down a lane off Lonsdale Street, Voco is a beautifully designed and presented hotel in the heart of Melbourne's CBD. The room was a good size, well designed & layed out, with all the luxurious comforts anyone could need.

6/10 Good

Was expecting it to be great. The main let down for me are the inadequate common areas. The bar is tiny, pool is adequate, library absurd - it looks nice and the room is very pleasant but ultimately doesn’t quite make it.

8/10 Very good

Enjoyed our first stay at Voco. Very clean and comfy beds. However, we were disappointed that the listing on Expedia clearly stated off site parking for $30 and there is no such thing. The staff said that they use to have discounts with parking garages but no longer do. This particular statement played a big part in choosing this particular hotel. We also saw all the photos of the beautiful restaurant and were looking forward to dinner and cocktails, but the restaurant was also closed. So the main points that were advertised that helped us choose Voco were not available. I think it’s important to advertise properly what you will receive.

Absolutely loved our weekend at Voco hotel, we stayed in one of the supreme rooms and it was absolutely luxurious. Extreme cleanliness we absolutely loved the little details like controlling the lights from the bed and the coffee machine! Thank you Voco we’ll be back!!
