If you don't want to spend a lot of money this is a great place to stay. Helpful staff, nice restaurants close by. I'd come again. You can get to wherever you want to go in Port of Spain from here without too much difficulty and the rent cars as well.

Stayed there one night. The room was simple but sufficient to meet all your needs. A/C being the most important. It was quaint and satisfying. The room was pretty clean and everything else was good for the cheap price in its location. $65 us is what we paid. At night they locked the front gate and had a security guard.... More

I'm giving the Melbourne Inn a five-star rating because it is a great place to stay if you're looking for something in the budget range. I wouldn't give it five stars if I were stacking it against some of the other hotels in Port of Spain, however, I found it to be one of the better budget places I've ever... More

When I first arrived at Melbourne Inn, I wanted to check out and relocate to another hotel. I was given a room that would not really lock and felt like I was living in whack accommodations - however, this was only because I arrived at 1:00 am or so and I was provided the only room the late night security...

HOW I found this hotel :- I am a world traveler and am always staying in hotels in my travels. For this particular visit, I was staying overnite in Trindad before catching a onward flight to my main destination. This meant a stay of about 12-13 hours. I clearly did not want to spend too much money for 12-13 hours.... More

If you are on a budget, this is the perfect Guest House for you. Clean, comfortable and smells very fresh - even the washrooms. You meet Cornel, a very businesslike person - but very informative and helpful. Bunny on the night shift - will ensure you have all the connections you need for a barber, a taxi, nite life, food...

The Melbourne [--] is only ½ block from Ariapita Street, has a more welcoming feel than nearby La Calypso, with an open, visible reception area, a gate but no massive locks, lots of tourist info, breakfast served for a 25TT charge, about $4, and seems friendly. Prices are comparable, maybe $5 higher, about $55 single with AC and bath. It... More
