We loved our room which was very comfortable and enjoyed the view looking out over the plain trees, quite Parisian! I think we were in 306 and the room and the bathroom was very spacious and well appointed. We liked the way the bathroom was located in the room and the sense to the outside through a window that opened.... More

Stayed here for two nights in November 2014. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. When it started raining I asked if they had an umbrella. I could borrow it use it and return when done. No hassle. (and in Melbourne you need a brolly). Needed the electronic tram pass card to travel on trams. The staff loaned us a... More

The location is absolutely fantastic. Its right there in Lygon st close to all the cafes and restaurants. The breakfast food in their own restaurant is basic , in befitting the “level” of hotel you're staying at. Its nice without being fantastic. The rooms are clean with basic amenities, the bed quite comfortable.

Also the internet kept dropping out which was very frustrating when it wasn't free. limited room service... More

The rooms were spacious and well equipped with fridge/iron/kettle/tea & coffee etc. The reception staff were courteous and very helpful, allowing us to print our boarding passes and to leave our car...

Recently stayed on Lygon Street in the Downtowner. The room was reasonably comfortable and clean. The staff were very accommodating. The best part is the location. Close to transport to the City, to Queen Vic markets and especially the Lygon Street eating strip.

This is a good 3 to 3.5* hotel in my mind. The hotel is located near all the restaurants on Lygon, there is a great choice along the road.....Italian, Thai, Indian, Vietnamese.........and it is easy to get into the city centre. Some rooms are accessed through an open air corridor and back onto the road. Rooms are spacious and clean... More

We stayed at the Downtowner on Lygon with 2 friends from Paris and were delighted by the service. The rooms were nice and well priced. Location wise the Downtowner is about a 10 minute casual walk to central Melbourne whilst Lygon Street is well known for it's fantastic range of restaurants. Car parking within the hotel grounds made our stay... More
