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

Perfect location for Dinner in Lygon Street. Staff are friendly. They let us leave our car there after checkout so we could do shopping at Vic Market . Great breakfast. Order taken on arrival so fresh and hot. Very comfortable and clean. Would stay there again.

I stayed in the Spa Room, the room was a comfortable size and clean. The heater worked really well, and the spa bath was amazing - lots of bubbles! The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall I thought the hotel was great value for money and I would stay there again.

Good for an overnight stay. However wasn't happy with sofa bed as 3rd bed in room, when paying $280. The shower being in the bath was difficult to get into. The bath was too high and I was concerned with stepping out about slipping over. If I were to stay again, would request a room without sofa bed & easier... More

Dear Trix0104, Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate your comments about the shower, on your next visit please let my team know, as we do have separate shower options as well. My only suggestion for the sofa bed would be an upgrade to a 2 bedroom apartment which has a twin room and double room adjoining the lounge. I... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Downtowner. It is located on a street where they are tones of good restaurants (don't miss out the Universal and Pho restaurant). It is walking distance to CBD, stadium, jail museum, etc. The room was clean and spacious. The staff was very helpful and nice. They responded right away to any requests we had.... More

Dear turtlefan8, Thank you for your endorsement of our location- close for all sporting events and cultural or shopping trips too. I am sorry you feel the parking should be free, the cost to provide parking this close to the city is expensive to maintain, but for only a small charge from as little as $10 if you book your...
