Premium Executive King Room

Pullman Melbourne City Centre - Luxury Hotel Review Universal Traveller by Tim Kroeger_9503

During my three-day stay at Pullman Melbourne City Centre, I was in a Premium Executive King Room.

This room features a spacious living area, complete with a marble dining table, a cozy couch, and a 65-inch smart TV.

I particularly enjoyed the design choice of separating the bedroom from the living space with a sliding door.

The bedroom featured a king-size bed, an additional smart TV, and a large window that provided breathtaking views of Melbourne’s towering skyscrapers.

A standout feature was the ensuite bathroom’s free-standing bathtub, which I appreciated a lot after spending the day exploring Melbourne!

Pullman provides a water jug, and there’s a water dispenser on each floor, offering unlimited complimentary still and sparkling water.

It’s very convenient and an excellent initiative to reduce single-use plastic.

Elevate Club Lounge

Another perk of staying in a Premium Executive King Room is the access to Pullman’s award-winning Elevate Club Lounge on the 15th floor.

The views from the lounge are breathtaking! It’s an excellent place for socializing, working, or sipping a coffee or drink.

Breakfast is available in the lounge every day from 7 am to 10:30 am. I strongly suggest trying their fresh smoothies and exquisite à la carte breakfast.

Daily complimentary canapés are served from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

You also have a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to choose from.

I really loved it when returning to the hotel after a day of exploring Melbourne! What’s better than enjoying your favorite cocktail with a view?

With personalized service, it’s a sanctuary of relaxation and sophistication.

The ambiance is one of elegance and comfort, featuring stylish and timeless interior design.

It’s an environment that both inspires and calms.

Pullman Melbourne City Centre Gym

The hotel has a fully renovated gym on the first floor that is open to all guests.

It’s equipped with everything required for a comprehensive workout.

Honestly, I was quite impressed. Typically, hotel gyms are limited to just a handful of basic machines and weights.

However, the gym at Pullman Melbourne City Centre is so well-equipped it could easily function as an independent gym!

Blossom Rooftop Bar

Blossom, located on the 14th floor of Pullman Melbourne City Centre, holds the title of the highest rooftop bar in Melbourne CBD!

The views are simply stunning, and the bar provides a great atmosphere for hanging out with friends, even if you’re not a guest at the hotel!

It opens daily at 4 pm.

I strongly recommend trying the wood-fired pizza; it’s delicious, especially when paired with a local draft beer.

The staff is absolutely wonderful and fun, very laid-back, and always ready to suggest cool places to visit next.

The prices are very reasonable.
