Make yourself at home at United Places Botanic Gardens, tucked in a quiet spot overlooking the lush grounds of Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens. With its minimalist style and light-filled interiors, this boutique city retreat is a stunning architectural marvel designed by renowned local architects. This paired with its bespoke services, lavish accommodation, prime location, and innovative cuisine make United Places ideal for an exclusive city break or extended business trip.

The atmosphere throughout the hotel is intimate and relaxed - creating the feel of a private house, with a twist. There are no check-in counters, no bellhop, no lobby. Instead, you’re assisted by a personal concierg who will whisk you to your private room and cater to your every need. All the fittings, furnishings, and decor showcases the creative collaboration of extraordinary artisans, including Patricia Urquiola for the sofas, Loom Towels for the organic Turkish throws, and Le Labo for the beautiful bath products.

When you’re ready to explore, you’ll find that this luxury home hotel puts you within reach of Melbourne’s CBD and all its attractions. Spend some time at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. Sip some of the world’s best coffee. Have your fill of tasty treats at Queen Victoria Market, or take the obligatory photo at Flinders Station. Then stroll through the lovely Royal Botanic Gardens, just moments away from your accommodation.

Finish the day with a sumptuous meal at Matilda 159, the in-house restaurant. Focused on modern Australian food grilled over hot coals and flames, the restaurant delights with a superb menu of kangaroo tartare, octopus, Wagyu, or duck, to name but a few. Matilda also offers in-suite dining paired with choice Champagne or wine.

With just twelve sumptuous suites spanning four floors, United Places Botanic Gardens is able to provide five-star service and unparalleled attention to detail. There are three 2-bedroom suites and nine 1-bedroom suites that all feature large balconies and a kitchenette. The suites also come with all the mod cons you could possibly want, including an HDTV with Netflix, high-end portable speaker, mini-bar, and coffee-making facilities
