My partner and I recently stayed at City Limits for one night. A very small place but fantastic value and very nice rooms.

This hotel is small but mighty, mighty good value! We recently stayed here as we had a show we were going to in Collins street. Cost of the room was really good, it includes a in room breakfast-nothing fancy but enough, and if you're like us and making the most you'll eat out anyway. The room was warm and had... More

Nice clean, very well located but I would stay here again. The property is advertised as an apartment where I would expect a couch or armchairs. This is nearly a studio or bed-sit. Parking is open air, off the side lane,and I was concerned about the security of it overnight. When we arrived the room had a musty, dank, mothball... More

This has to be the best apartment/studio accommodation in Melb. CBD. So close to everything plus! Very comfortable studio with all amenities needed. Although located in busy little Bourke street, the double glazed Windows are a bonus. Ideal for couples. Shuttle bus service to airport without trimming it to Southern cross stn. So many choices of dining in the area... More

Conveniently located - close to China town, trams, shops and eateries. Room was clean and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable which was a bonus. And if you need a coffee fix there is a cute little cafe next door. They could do with more than 1 elevator and washing machine but other than that, a great place... More

Fabulous location - close to restaurants, theatres, tram line, train station, and landmarks. Double glazed windows did a good job of cutting down the night time city noises. Lovely staff! Good sized room, clean and very comfortable, small but handy kitchenette.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
