We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and frankly it was one of the cheapest going around the time of the White Night festival in Melbourne. The good reviews on TripAdvisor encouraged us to stay here and we were pleased. It was a great chance to stay in Fitzroy which is a charming area, full of restaurants and not far... More

We found this hotel to be in fantastic position to explore Melbourne. Being next to Lygon St was great but to also be within walkiing distance to the city and other attractions was a bonus. The room was well appointed, a great king bed and having a bath after a long day trip was the icing on the cake. The... More

The hotel was perfect for our needs. We only needed a place to sleep as we were out for most of the day. Location is everything! Its only a short walk to several attractions, and finding food is no issue! We hope to stay again one day, but bring the family next time. Staff were very helpful.

Stayed here on a Thursday night I chose this hotel based on a recommendation and the fact that it had a car park at a reasonable price. Clean, friendly staff, comfortable bed. literally my only complaint was that there was only one tissue in the tissue box & 2 1/2 rolls of toilet paper and as I had a cold... More

The hotel is located on Lygon Street so lots of good options for food (Lamb's is awesome) and great access to the city but it is a pretty bog-standard motel. It was nice and clean and the rooms were quite spacious, lots of carparking, but noisy - it is an older building. Lygon Street is noisy and the windows are... More

If you are looking for comfortable budget accommodation close to the City and restaurants then you can't go past the Downtowner on Lygon. It was obviously originally a four storey walk-up motel, probably late 60s/early seventies - which means if you have a car then there's sufficient available parking (a premium in Melbourne) and the rooms are relatively spacious and...

Dear Dingo_Dude, Thank you so much for taking the time to give us an in depth review. Whilst our hotel maintains the space and open air design of its 70s birth, we have just finishing off a soft refurbishment of all rooms with Carpeting,wallpapering and lighting being upgraded to give it a modern edge but move away from the "...

This is summer tourist season in Melbourne -- February. Four nights for a bit less that $100 USD per night (breakfast NOT included). The quality of the hotel itself and its rooms is relatively ordinary. What "makes" this hotel is its exceptional staff and a terrific location. The room - ordinary - but given that I reside in Denmark where... More

We normally stay on Flinders Lane but chose the Downtowner for a change as it still has a reasonably central location at the southern end of 'Little Italy' and also had a really good 5 night stay rate. If you ignore the 'fridge in the bathroom' thing it's a great value base, with comfortable bed, good room service plus pleasant... More
