The Rialto in Melbourne is one of the best hotels in the world. It was built in the 19th Century to testify of the grandeur of Melbourne at the time, and has remained a fantastic place to stay since then. The Rialto is now part of the InterContinental Group, and has been refurbished over time to mix the old with the new. And the result is simply stunning. The outside remains classic whilst the interior is full on modern.

The hotel has 253 rooms and suites. Each is elegantly decorated and furnished, and although the tone may seem “antic”, the atmosphere created feels very modern and contemporary. The bathrooms have marble floor and some have tubs by the window to experience the greatest bath view over Melbourne.

The impressive thing about the hotel is also the atrium that offers a fantastic feeling of grandeur when lit at night. You can eat and drink in this glass cathedral, and especially try out the Alluvial restaurant, focused on Australian cuisine. The hotel has also two lounge bars, one to start the night, the other to finish it. The next morning, try out the Spa or the fitness centre to get back in shape for a full day’s work.
