What made my most recent #SingTravelsToMelbourne adventure more memorable was my stay in this super hipster hotel- NOTEL.Entering via the pink Saluministi Cafe door right in the middle of Melbourne Central Business District…I was led into this pink-splashed staircase.Upon reaching the top floor, I scanned my digital key (super convenient- the hotel sent in the key access via an app they instructed me to download a few hours before my check-in time! No need for extra reception hullabaloos.)… and I was welcomed by this rooftop scene like no other!Notel has 6 airstreams completely refitted and transformed into designer urban rooms.Welcome to mine! Surprisingly, it actually has everything that I need in a “house”- comfy bed, food & storage, entertainment (they provide free Netflix via the room iPad), seating area, and spacious bathroom!They literally didn’t waste any space and made sure every square meter was maximized!What’s a bathroom without a cute shower area?I was even able to work all night long comfortably by using the edge of the bed floor as my desk!Aside from the FREE EVERYTHING BAR (complete with wine, chips, chocolate, and various Australian snacks), they also have a sprocket in the airstream room which guests can use to instantly print out photos from the rooftop (or Melbourne snaps, just like what I did!) And being situated in the cafe city, they offer UNLIMITED coffee from the cafe below for all the guests staying in Notel! How sweet is that?Oh! If you’re feeling extra, they have one special room- the AIRSTREAM WITH BENEFITS that comes with a private Spa, which you can enjoy while overlooking Flinders Lane.Staying in Notel was a unique adventure like no other. It definitely made me fall deeper in love with the urban oasis that is Melbourne.
