Treasury on Collins was fortunate enough to have been selected by The Age and Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Weekend publication to be featured in its annual ’52 Weekends Away’ magazine. As one of only two Melbourne CBD hotels selected, we are delighted to have been selected by Traveller’s editor Anthony Dennis.

THE LOCATION The 95-room hotel is inside an historic 19th-century building with a near-perfect location on bustling Collins Street. And being within the CBD fare-free tram zone means no pass is required if you stay within its limits. It’s also close to the main department stores and retail outlets, renowned restaurants, cafes, bars and famed laneways. Until recently, it operated as the Sebel Hotel.
THE PLACE Erected in 1876 as a two-storey neoclassical-style building, three further floors were added in 1930. The building’s soaring ceilings – a legacy of its 19th-century heritage – allow for plenty of space and split-level rooms, with apartments starting at around 40 square metres.
THE EXPERIENCE A Nespresso machine in most rooms along with Netflix access and gratis Wi-Fi make things homely. Breakfast is served on the mezzanine level but you may want to head out and experience Melbourne’s celebrated laneway cafe culture.
DON’T MISS The historic building in which the hotel operates is an attraction in its own right. Grab a copy of the excellent self-guided tour of the fascinating structure.
IDEAL FOR Catching a special show, exhibition or event in the city. Please note, children may not be allowed to stay in some spaces due to steep stairs. – Anthony Dennis
