Location is really good, but it is all about it... not very clean and the room was incredibly tiny. we were not even able to have a place to seat and charge our phones before taking our flights as we had already checked out!!

Thank gnito

Upon arrival I found the staff at reception to be great and check-in was smooth. The thing I found a bit strange however, was the lift taking you to the 2nd floor along with a walk through the dinning area and then a 2nd lift for the bedroom floors. The bedroom itself was nice. its got all the basics one... More

This is THE most convenient place in town. Certainly no 5 stars, but you cant beat it for location, small eateries and other shops nearby. The staff in the (small) foyer were very helpful, storing bags, calling taxis etc. Room and bath room were clean. You just cant go wrong here.

Booked because of a good rate which includes breakfast. Very well located in CBD so you have great access to so much at hand. The room (314) was compact! But that was OK for the 2 nights we stayed. The room had a musty smell due we think to stale water in the drains. Needs flushing with hot water and... More

Technically this hotel is 3 1/2 star, but the location gives it a fabulous edge. You are right in the heart of the cbd, cafes, shopping, quirky bars, everything Melbourne is famous for, right at your door.

If you are after a simple room in the centre of the city this may fit the bill. In reality it is only a three star set up. But I've given it a fourth one for location which is brilliant for the traveller. The concise story is this: - It is a simple hotel with a small reception area right... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
