Notel Melbourne – our review of the airstream hotel
The Airstream Hotel in Harper Lane.
Edit: We are super excited to announce we are now a partner of Notel Melbourne! After we wrote this blog Notel got in touch and we decided this was a collaboration we couldn’t pass up. So every Notel booking receives a full bottle (yes, you heard right!) of Prosecco when they stay onsite and what’s even better, friends of 6Ft6 will receive $25 off! Simply enter ‘6Ft6ATNOTEL’ at checkout*
The ultimate Melbourne Getaway
If you want to get a dose of Melbourne culture, a night away at Notel is an essential item to have on your to-do list. This modern place to stay is on a rooftop in Flinders lane and consists of 6 renovated Airstream caravans; each with a queen size bed, large bathroom and an outdoor deck to soak up the rooftop atmosphere. There is no lobby, pool, gym or extra costs, its not a ‘hotel’ but rather, a unique experience in the heart of the city. It sits above a great hole-in-the-wall Melbourne cafe (and yes you get bottomless coffee included with your room) and is a short walk to some of Melbourne’s most popular places to eat and drink.
This is not a place to come if you want pampering and access to hotel facilities (room service, a porter and buffet breakfast) but we think there is some bonuses that we haven’t every experienced at any hotel.
Here is a list of our highlights and inclusions:
No signage, just a hidden location for a true Melbourne laneway vibe.
An app on your iPhone as the key/access to your room (very tech savvy!).
Free mini bar with a full bottle of 6Ft6 Prosecco.
They have also done the hard work and found the best spots to eat, drink and party to live like a local. Plan your journey here.
If you want your own night or weekend away, book your stay and enjoy a unique night away.
Please know that we paid for our room, this isn’t sponsored in any way. We simply feel it is a duty to let you know of the best places to stay in Melbourne… we’ve been to a few and this experience was a definite front runner. We will not discourage you from telling Notel that you heard about them from us though, because we really want another night with a free mini-bar.
*Not available for Saturday nights, or for Airstream with benefits.
