NOTEL Corner of Harper Lane and Flinders Lane (above Frys Fast Park),Vic; notelmelbourne.com.au Verdict: Notel falls short of its cool, edgy promise, but would be a great place to book for a party (though you can’t bring your own alcohol so this would have to be an organised event). Score: We rated: The inner-city convenience, all-inclusive mini bar and 11am check-out. We’d change: The price for what you get is pretty steep. It feels like a slightly classier hostel for the price of a full-service hotel. It’s a lot to pay for novelty and a few Instagram posts and we couldn’t shake the ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ feeling.
