Second time in this place and it hits just the right notes. Nothing outstanding but nothing thats bad either. Well located for access to the Lygon restaurant strip, there is no shortage of places to eat. The hotel staff are friendly and pleasant, always with a smile. The rooms are basic, but relatively large with pretty good lighting. The bartender... More

Myself and a few colleagues had a decent stay here. Check-in was easy and the staff were all lovely, down to earth and caring. I paid $10 for wifi. Just before writing this review I noticed TripAdvisor advertises this hotel as having free wifi... Not sure what the go is with that but anyway.. The rooms were clean, quite modern... More

We spent our first few nights in Melbourne in the Central Business District, and relocated to this hotel to save a few bucks. We love the location. It's a block from the lovely Carlton Gardens and the Melbourne Museum and is adjacent to a wonderful Italian-European shopping and dining area. We opted to purchase the continental breakfast, which was a... More

The room was clean and comfortable and very well appointed. All staff were friendly and efficient and were very approachable. Public transport is very accessible. Onsite parking means the car can be left at the hotel. Restaurant meals are substantial and good value.

This is a lovely spot for your Melbourne visit. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are large and airy and the bathrooms have Jacuzzi tubs. The Carlton area is filled with cafes and lively University crowd. So, while you are centrally located, the hotel is quiet and serene.

There is on site parking and the rooms are arranged in a motor inn style ie the rooms open to the carpark court yard. Well fit out - The kettle... More

The Downtowner does everything it has to: nice spacious rooms, friendly staff, decent breakfast and the option to enjoy a good dinner in the evening. Combined with the great location, I would definitely recomend the Downtowner hotel.

Fast and friendly staff on arrival and checkout. Suitably priced. Car parking always a bonus in the city. The room was clean and relatively modern given the age of the building. A bit of traffic noise.....but hey, we are in a city!

Stayed here for 9 nights over Christmas and New Year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is in a great location with lots of bars, convenience stores, ice cream parlours and restaurants all within easy reach. My room was very clean with a nice bed and a large bathroom and the provision of an ironing board, iron, kettle and toaster... More

That is a great review and it was pleasing to read you recommend us so highly. I am sorry you did not get to experience our breakfast, which is one of our hallmarks. It has a fantastic selection of cold meats and cheeses and fruits on the buffet with all hot food cooked to order by our chef. The benefit... More
