Built in 1926, the All Seasons Kingsgate Hotel combines traditional European charm and service with modern facilities and amenities. The property is located mere blocks from Southern Cross Station, Melbourne's train hub and within walking distance of Queen Victoria Market, Etihad Stadium and other major attractions. Rooms span the gamut from spacious to economical. The on-site restaurant, Bergerac, serves traditional French food, while the on-site bar, Squizzy's Café, Bar & Lounge, pours stiff drinks in a cozy atmosphere.

Property features

The Kingsgate dates back to 1926 and has been renovated numerous times since.

All guests enjoy access to on-site safe deposit boxes (fees apply), laundry service (fees apply) and complimentary luggage storage.

skip this hotel

Generally we like Ibis hotels but this was one of the worse we have seen. Our smelly room was outfitted with old furniture . Window frames were old metal, almost impossible to close or open. There was a door to the adjacent room with about an inch gap below and every night we were listening to the tv next door. Smoke alarm featured a plastic bag that nobody bothered to remove. It was placed there probably to enjoy a cigarette without excessive commotion in a non-smoking room. The only room service we received were new tubes of shampoo and body wash. Fresh towels and linens must have been extra cost. If you like some free rock music in your bed, there is busy and loud club below that entertains all night.

Good Value City Hotel

Good location on the edge of the city and perfectly located for the Southern Cross station if coming in from the airport by the shuttle transfer. After an overnight flight I arrived early before the check in time and the staff managed to service me a room and went out of there way to get me into a room as quickly as possible. Fair standard accommodation at a great price.

good value right in town

everything is great except the lousy breakfast buffet. expensive and poor choices. take a 5-minute walk up the street and get a great omelette for a 1/3 of the price.

Perfect for a 3 stars Hotel !!!

My review is based on a 3 stars Hotel, incannit compare to a 4 or 5 star hotel. If you looking de fancy hotels then don't read this. This Hotel is great for what it is, a 3 star hotel in a great location. Rooms are decent size with all u need. Clean, well spread out, mini fridge, TV, coffee/tea, desk, iron, etc with nice bathroom. Staff are very helpful and nice, no wifi in room , unless u pay for it ($18 p day), but ur paying cheap room so don't expect everything included (wifi, breakfast, etc) I highly recommend this hotel ! I will stay there next time I go to Melbourne

A bargain with few compromises

Excellent value for the price, and convenient to the Southern Cross station (airport SkyBus). Several amenities that are usually associated with fancier places, such as shampoo in plastic tubes rather than foil envelopes (or none at all); a big, modern TV set; and adequate lighting. Not to be confused with the Hyatt, but at well under half the price I was more than satisfied. I would return if I wanted to be in that area again. The main entrance, with about ten steps up from the street, is not wheelchair-friendly; I don't know if there is an alternate entrance from another side.
