I stayed at the Mercure Welcome because I have stayed in Mercures before as well as Ibis and Novotels. This was a poor reflection on the Mercure name. Checking in was a great experience with Liam being exceptionally helpful including recommending places to see and even his favourite places to eat and drink. The room however was a different matter.... More

For a mid-city hotel, this place is a gem. It's great value for money, has a nice bar where you can enjoy a drink before dins and its right in the centre of everything. The staff are very friendly and professional also. We've stayed here about 3 times before and we'll definitely be back again!

My friend and I stayed here on a Sunday night when we were in Melbourne for the Keith Urban concert. I had booked a room on the net and was under the impression I had booked a room with two single beds. Upon arrival, we found Marcus at reception to be very welcoming and friendly. When we got to our... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in January. The hotel is in a central location and it is only a very short walk to Federation Square, The river, China Town, Shopping district, tram stops to anywhere in the city and surrounds and the interesting Lanes area. The hotel itself appears to be two hotels sharing a reception and communal rooms.... 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.
