Location was perfect with 3 different tram stops at the doorstep to take you anywhere. Laneways were very close to get to with amazing eating choices. Bourke street mall and all the great shops one tram stop away or easy walking distance through the lanes.

Booked this hotel four months out from AFL Round 1 and the Melbourne F1 Grand Prix. Stayed with 2 others in a 2 bedroom apartment. May have been upgraded to include a balcony, which was great. Anyway, the Breakfree on Collins has a great location with everything at your door step. Great staff that cater for all your needs including...

Our room was disgustingly dirty. It had bugs in cupboards and in the bath. The splashback was covered in grease and so was the plug. The floor was covered in hairs and was in need of a good clean. Overall impression was not good. I would never stay hete again or recommend it to anyone else!!!

I booked the room for myself and three young children. The "cleaning" was horrendous. There were pubic hairs around the unit, rubbish left under beds, food on the rug, the kitchen did not look like it had been wipe over and food crumbs under the lounge. I am pretty relaxed usually but had three small children cruising round the place...

Couldn't see the daylight, literally had to walk out of the building to see whether it was sunny or raining, shower didn't work, there is obviously plumbing issues the shower had an overhead shower and one that disconnected, the overhead shower only...

Evening reception staff appeared to have little interest in their job, although the morning reception staff as I was checking out were friendly and accomodating. All channels...

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.

Of course there's sport, the Rod Laver Arena hosts the Australian Open, the AFL Grand Final is held at the MCG or you can catch one of many exciting games at Docklands Stadium. You won't want to miss the Melbourne Cup and the rest of the Spring Racing Carnival or perhaps you just want to head on over to Fitzroy and Acland Streets St Kilda to get amongst the funky and colourful mix of restaurants, people and places of interest.
