About Villa Donati

Regarded as one of the finest private hotels in Melbourne, Villa Donati, with its cool, classic, exterior and chic, contemporary interior offers luxury accommodation in a great inner city location.

Described by “Getaway” national TV program as very boutique and very private, Villa Donati offers all the amenities you would expect in a boutique hotel plus the personalized touches and individual styling possible in a small establishment. Furnished with the private collection of the owner’s art and artifacts, you’ll find superbly styled rooms with a mix of European and Asian furnishings which combine for a chic, stylish look.

This house, like its neighbourhood, is rich in history. A National Trust overlay on the area indicates its historical significance. Originally home to the notable architect, John Koch, the property then became the Anglican Archbishop’s residence before emerging in the 1970’s as the Moulin Rouge Massage Parlour. Now a stately private hotel, just 2.5k from the CBD, this historic private hotel is ideal for both leisure and corporate travellers.
