The 6 Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in Melbourne

1. Lyall Hotel and Spa – South Yarra

The Lyall Hotel and Spa in Melbourne
This gorgeous boutique hotel is infinitely more appealing than most high-rise hotels elsewhere. As well as noticeable charm and elegance, the staff is very personable and the suites extremely spacious. All feature kitchens and many have two bedrooms. Even more appealing for families are free rental of bicycles and DVDs and proximity on foot to trains and trams for the city center. Perhaps, not the best option if traveling with toddlers, but ideal for those with teenagers. • Map • Hotel phone: +61 (0)3 9868 8222 • Review of Lyall Hotel and Spa

2. Crown Metropol Melbourne – Southbank

Crown Metropol Hotel in Melbourne
The state’s largest hotel is just one of three within the incredibly vast Crown Casino complex that includes endless places to eat, drink, and shop, as well as games arcades, bowling alleys, and cinemas in a building next to the Metropol. All categories of rooms are spacious and most face a surprisingly quiet street. Some rooms are particularly designed for families and special package deals are also routinely offered. Plenty of amenities are along the river and just across the bridge in the city center. • Map • Hotel phone: +61 (0)3 9292 6211 • Review of Crown Metropol Melbourne

3. Pan Pacific Melbourne – Southbank

Pan Pacific Melbourne in Melbourne
In a surprisingly quiet, traffic-free position facing the inner-city river, the Pan Pacific is surrounded by fashionable shops and appealing riverside cafés and within a short stroll across a pedestrian bridge from the city center. Ideal for small families are the special Family Queen Rooms. The spacious two-bedroom suites are better, featuring kitchenettes, two bathrooms, and separate living areas. No pool, however. • Map • Hotel phone: +61 (0)3 9027 2000 • Review of Pan Pacific Melbourne
