The hotel staff was not helpful at all. The room looked different on the internet. The spa was very small. The manager did not know what to do. He said he couldn't help us out. They were very unprofessional.

We have just returned from spending 3 wonderful nights at the Downtowner, and the whole 49 'seniors' in our Group were ecstatic - the location was ideal for walking to the Melbourne Flower Show, and for those who chose to check out the many eateries in Lygon Street or venture down to Chinatown in the CBD. Coach access to the... More

If you plan to stay there, and book through the Downtowner website, I suggest that you do this well in advance of your stay. As the rooms start filling up the prices increase. And keep your booking receipt for when you check in, you may be asked to pay then (as I was... at a different rate). Over the last... More

Good location to city and Lygon street district. Staff were friendly. Room 127 was a little noisy, but so close to the street it is expected. Cleaners walking up and down the hall, and chatting quite loudly (Saturday and Sunday) first thing in the morning was a bit frustrating. Overall not bad.

If you are staying for the Carlton, Lygon Street experience, this is the hotel for you. Best to avoid the lower levels and Queensberry or Lygon Street facing room as it can get quite noisy on Fri and Sat nights, but the location is worth it. Easy going and friendly staff. Takes time out to assist and direct you from... More

Staff were lovely - very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a location that allows you to walk to the CBD and Victoria Markets. Also being on Lygon Street gives you ready access to lots of yummy food options.
