Lets start with location... Superb!! Close enough to the CBD to walk, though Cab's are frequent and not expensive to the key spots of the CBD and of course, you are literally a stone throw from the fantastic selection of restaurants on Lygon St. Overall service from the staff was good and attentive. The room was of good size and... More

We've stayed at this hotel previously and I've written very positive reviews but this time there were quite a few issues that really detracted from the stay. We stay here when on business as the hotel has well appointed rooms, car parking, free wifi and an amazing location that means in a minute or two you have all the dining... More

Confortable, clean room with easy check-in and helpful, friendly staff. Close to all the wonderful restaurants on Lygon St whilst only a short walk to the city, Queen Victoria Market and the free trams. Quiet room with very little/no traffic noise even though we were near the street. Only issue was the room was not completely dark at night/early morning... More

Plenty of car parking. Very light and comfortable room. Had breakfast downstairs at the restaurant. It is advertised as a buffet breakfast, but had to order my breakfast. The continental stuff was all there ready to go. It was hot though when it was delivered. Handy to all the restaurants in Lygon Street. All within walking distance. Handy to the... More

Standard hotel room. Nice beds. Tea and coffee making facilities available. Good cold bar fridge. Car parking was a bit tight. They tend to double park cars in front of others so if that happens to you they need to shift the cars, which they will.

Booked this hotel based on pricing and location for a one night stay over the weekend. The room itself (210) was right on the corner of the building and the bathroom faced on to Lygon St. The room itself was spacious and the bed was comfortable. While loud during the day and early part of the night, generally speaking road... More

This hotel whilst it is getting a little old, it was well priced and well located for our trip. We experienced excellent check in service and nothing was a problem. Centrally located to melbourne CBD for walking even with a toddler in a pram and just across the road from the start of the restaurants in lygon street.

Nice sized and clean rooms at the city end of Lygon Street. Excellent value. All rooms appear have large windows at the front and back allowing plenty of natural light. Bathrooms are large and well maintained although they are dated. Small unstocked fridges are located in the bathroom. Tea and coffee and hot water kettle in each room. Plenty of... More

We stayed at the Downtowner for a few days when there for a conference. He rooms are a reasonable size with spacious bathrooms. Neat and tidy with a nice buffet breakfast. Staff were exceptional and always friendly, service was first rate. Importantly, it was within a few minutes walk central Melbourne, the conference venue and Lygons famed cafes and restaurants,...

I've stayed at this hotel many times, very clean, nicely appointed rooms and well priced for the location. The location is fantastic right on Lygon Street and a short 10 minute walk in to the heart of Melbourne. Parking is a breeze on site (sometimes in busy times you might find it is a bit hard to find a spot... More

Dear Steve P, Thank you so much for your insightful review. As a regular corporate guest I am pleased you get the benefit of the onsite car parking. Many people stay and park here for exactly the reasons you mention - doing hook turn and finding parking in the CBD is often really tricky, so leaving the car a the... More
