Such a good location! Short walk from Spencer Street Station after catching the Airport Bus. Short walk to Crown Casino, where you can dine in a restaurant or get take away in the food court. Jump on a tram into the city cbd (trams in the cbd are free to travel on) or to St. Kilda. The Staff are enthusiastic,...

Location: Probably the most important feature of this hotel. Literally a 1 minute walk from Southern Cross station, location is this hotel's strong point. Facilities: a relatively small boutique-ish hotel, its a relatively new looking hotel. Room is average size and overlooks the street outside, but the toilet is really really small. The shower cubicle is small and claustrophobic, can...

It was a refreshing experience. Staff were so friendly and helpful with a down to earth quality. My room opened out onto a lovely private courtyard which was a bonus. The cleaning staff are to be commended upon the care they take. Thankyou!

Fantastic staff and so close to Crown. Perfect stay. Would have loved to have stayed longer. Perfect place for a overnight stay. Café next door was pleasant and great value. Looking to come back next time with plenty of family members.

Though the room was very small, this hotel has a wonderful atmosphere and is perfectly situated in Melbourne. Short walk to a tram stop and across the bridge to the exhibition centre. Free wi-fi is also a plus!

We had some troubles to find a car park (the price are incredibly expensive all around the city). The hotel offers a car park for 35 AUD per day. The staff was young and super - friendly. The rooms are OK, even if I found the bed too soft. The problem is the bathroom: even if the shower is OK...

I am very grateful for the staff for enabling me to check in so late as my original travel plans changed. They certainly gave a stranded treavller a "good samaritan" experience. It was also a far more convenient location for my appointments the next day.

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.
