Overall my stay at the Downtowner was great. The location is just excellent - an easy walk to Fitzroy and Collingwood, Lygon St cafes and restaurants, the CBD, Carlton Gardens, Queen Victoria Markets, etc. My room (executive suite, room 111) was a corner room - quite spacious, neat, clean and comfortable (especially the bed). There was lots of storage space... More

My partner and I have just spent a week at the Downtowner and couldn't be happier with the level of service and friendliness of all the staff. We happened across the place as we were walking to check out another place further down Lygon St - I'm so pleased we stopped. The proximity to everything meant we could ditch the... More

What a people and a hotel! The staff are very friendly and understanding. I arrived on July 18th 2014 and stayed up to 27th. I found the bed comfortable and the room was always kept very neat. On the day of departure the Hotel surprised me and my team. We were given a flexible checkout time much later than the... More

Stayed for 2 nights for my visit to Melbourne. We arrived late at night but check-in was prompt and efficient. We had a room for three, and the bed was comfortable although the sofa bed was a little springy. It is convenient if you want to explore the city, as it is walkable to the Old Melbourne Gaol (Jail museum),... More

This is a good choice if you want a clean hotel near the CBD. The bed was very comfortable and I loved the large plush towels. The place is a bit noise due to the homage of early 1970's architect but I would stay here again.

I stayed here on two separate occasions within the same week. On both occasions I had a very comfortable room which was in good condition and maintained well. Just for reference - as well as the mini bar which costs money they also have free coffee & tea making facilities. I only discovered this on the last day. It was... More

I booked this hotel through a Priceline decision, not realizing that star ratings in Australia are generally inflated. I knew what I was getting into after the fact, though. This hotel is really more like a motel, and it's not nearly as nice as some of the other options for not much more money. However, the service is excellent, and... More

Beds are super comfortable, great location, staff friendly, helpful, professional and bubbly. Rooms are clean, plenty of toiletries and towels available. Great location and breakfast is great value. I'll definitely be staying again.

After a long trip on the v/line I came in late at night and was greeted by the most helpful staff. I stayed in a King standard which was the most comfortable sleep I've had in a long time, loved the layout of the room plenty of space. On checkout I was pleasantly surprised that the early morning staff at... More
