PRODUCT REVIEW: The Larwill Studio, Parkville VIC

By 25 May 2015March 3rd, 2022News, Product Review

The Larwill Studio in Flemington Road, Parkville Victoria opened in September 2014, joining the impressive portfolio of Art Series Hotels.

Annexing the Royal Children’s Hospital in Parkville, The Larwill Studio is a fantastic option for those who want to be close enough to the city, but also like to be enveloped by the serenity of beautiful parklands.

At the Larwill Studio, you are immersed in the fabulous and playful artwork of renowned Australian artist David Larwill, whose aesthetic is carried throughout the hotel’s décor and design, and complemented wonderfully by scenic views of the parks that surround the hotel.

All 96 rooms at the Larwill Studio offers Art Series signature beds, 47’ TVs with Foxtel, microwaves, coffee pod machines, minibars full of local produce and free WiFi. And if you find yourself creatively inspired by the space, each room also comes with a small canvas and art materials to let your inner artist come through.

For those who like to keep fit and zen, there are in room yoga mats and a dedicated yoga channel as well as a morning running group with the hotel General Manager, an impressive gymnasium and walking trail maps for the park!

Guests can expect 24 hour reception, concierge services, meeting rooms, a funky pop-up restaurant (with an onsite restaurant to open soon), beautifully landscaped gardens and large communal spaces.

Within walking distance to the CBD, Melbourne Zoo, Queen Victoria Markets, and Melbourne University, and within close proximity to public transport, it also offers the convenience of hiring a Smart Car or even a push bike for the day at reasonable prices.

The Larwill Studio is a welcome addition to the area, and is a great option for those who like to find bursts of inspiration and pockets of serenity even in the hectic bustle of a work trip away from home.
