Stayed at the DownTowner with friends. We had a beautiful meal at a lovely place on Lygon street which was only 5 mins walk if that from the Hotel. We went to the Footy at the MCG and really wasn't in our Hotel room a lot. We found the room clean and the bed comfortable. Loved that we could park... More

The rooms were clean and tidy, the bedding was comfortable. Great location, easy to access by walking to a large variety of restaurants, Melbourne goal and the Melbourne museum. Great place to stay, highly recommended.

Staff are always super friendly and helpful even with unusual requests or issues. Food in restaurant is very resonance prices and tastes great. Breakfast really nice too. Our company books us here all the time. Very happy. Little street noise in room. Walking distance to all variety of restaurants and public transport. Definitely be back.

Reception staff were fantastic and friendly. Disappointed in the "suite" , needs attention, although very clean is somewhat dated. Probably a little above price point for the experience, albeit it was just a crash pad for the night after a function close to this property and not a special occasion.

This was our second stay in the Downtowner in the handy inner-city suburb of Carlton. This time we were attending a dinner at the wonderful Jimmy's Watson's bar and restaurant further down Lygon St. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and while not luxurious, the room was spacious and clean and, for travellers who love a good soak in...

The Downtowner is close to Melbourne city. no more than a 10min stroll. Lygon street in Carlton has a great variety of restaurants and specialty stores. Great for the whole family and easy access to Trams if you don't fancy hiring a car.

Another fantastic stay at the downtowner. Spent a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed my time, the room is spacious, king sized bed, great bathroom, free wi fi...really friendly staff and delicious breakfasts and in such a great location. An easy walk into the city and on the doorstep of lygon st. Thank you for yet another great stay.

My partner Glenda and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Downtowner. I haven't been to Melbourne for many a year and Glenda made the comment that "if I had to pick between Sydney and Melbourne I'd pick Melbourne". The staff were most helpful and the location on Lygon was great, we particularly enjoyed Old Melbourne Gaol. Need to go... More
