Overall: the location is great, a short walk into the city and restaurants everywhere. Weren't always able to secure a park, but as we stayed over the weekend, there was free parking close by. The hotel was a cheap price so I wasn't expecting anything over the top, but I do appreciate the basics, of which the venue did not...

This is the only place we stay when visiting Melbourne!! Lygon Lodge has everything at its doorstep, food, drink, entertainment & the lifestyle, the location is second to none!! The rooms are beautifully kept and very comfortable. The staff here are also incredibly accommodating and welcoming, you seriously will not stay at a more inviting establishment anywhere, well I'm yet...

Great location to wonderful food, close to vic markets, close to trams. Perfect location to view the city area and catch free tourist tram. All trams in city area are free. The famous Lygon street is well known for its itilian restaurants and believe me they are fantastic and extremely well worth a visit.

It was everything we wanted. Catching up with my cousin we could park and make the easy walk to the city and the local shops and laneways in the area. Will definitely stay again. The shower was good the room lovely and clean a really good budget accommodation place.

Stayed 1 night for new year eve. Convenient location access to other nice restaurant. Not a fancy or romantic hotel for couple getaway but is convenient for business or visit friends around. Facilities was ok and the room was clean too.

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...

Staying in Lygon Street

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.
