Great place to stay in the hub, so close to the cbd and right in the center of Lygon St. The place was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. For the price it was excellent. The room was simply decorated with all essentials and the bathroom was modern. If you want somewhere quiet and the whole hotel...

Its a matter of you get what you pay for. When we travel to melbourne we are hardly in the room anyway. Clean, functional, comfortable. Parking is annoying with a first in first served basis. Might try some other motels in the area next time

The room itself was fine. If you are a light sleeper DO NOT get a front suite. I could not believe how many wankers with modified exhausts get their jollies from driving on Lygon Street. All the way to about 2.00am. Did not hear/see one police siren all night. It's a disgrace that is costing the Lodge business.

Room was ok, small and nothing special but price was ok. The problem is the parking. There really isn't any and you can't reserve any even if you have some one with a disability. They explained parking when I rung after I had booked. Didn't mention the parking next to them. They should have told me there is parking beside...

We have stayed twice both times in executive rooms. Overall these are good value, great location being on Lyon and reasonably well appointed rooms. The first stay (4 nights), we were disturbed by the dustbins being emptied in the early hours. The balcony was also not really usable as the smell of cooking is overwhelming. We opted to stay on...

We chose this hotel because it has what we needed; a carpark, a kitchenette, security. It's away from the busy CBD but it's within a convenient drive. The room itself is a little dark, tired and worn out. For one night, it has done its job well. The carpark is a little small so make sure you get a spot...

As the title suggests this is ideal for many tourist attractions, eateries , pubs and parks. Staff were helpful and the tariff was reasonable. Our balcony was very tiny and had no outlook. So clean n tidy but not flash in any way.

Lygon Lodge was close enough but far enough away from the shops, from the crowds, from the bustle of city life. Rooms were clean, reception staff helpful. Lincoln Square tram station was within walking distance. I felt safe staying here.

Spent 2 night close to food and the CBD. The room was ok it was noisy and the food smells were strong but again you walk out onto Lygon Street. The only thing that made me mad was we placed a Do not disturb sign on the door and the cleaners came in anyway. This is not acceptable.

Had a good night in a plain but clean functional room Fridge a bit noisy but good otherwise. Will stay there again. Friendly helpful staff. Good location and parking is provided if you get there early enough. Thank You

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.

“rooms on lower levels an towards the rear of property would be quieter”

“Ask for a room on the 3rd or 4th floor at the rear, with a balcony. Quieter.”
