Have stayed here 6 times mostly for the location. Rooms are small, but clean for an old hotel, it's its not too bad. . Breakfast is always good value. Staff are not particularly friendly. Loads of great eateries in walking distance. As I said, the location is great.

This Hotel was chosen by my employer for an overnight business trip. First impression.......steps........lots of them, just to get to the door. On a rainy Melbourne day, they are also slippery, no assistance. There was no clear sign to direct guests to a ramp or disability entrance....in fact, I did not see a ramp at any point during my stay.... More

Terrible. Worst customer service. Trying to find out information was like beating a dead animal. Not clean. Hole in the wall. Housekeeping ignored my wishes to be "undisturbed" Highly recommend you choose elsewhere.

Recently travelled to Melbourne with husband and daughter for AFL. This hotel represents great value for money. Service was outstanding, Shannon in reception and the 2 young waitresses at breakfast were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Hotel was within walking distance to everything we needed, food, shopping and sport. Many tourist attractions also nearby. Staff had sound knowledge... More

My wife and I were in Melbourne recently and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It is very close to Lygon Street and Carlton Gardens. Our room was fine, clean and the bathroom was particularly good. A really good shower. We had a breakfast package. Food quite good. Get there early if you can. Staff are very friendly and... More

This hotel was in a great location and check in and check out was fast and easy. The room was generally comfortable, however the bathroom floor was quite sticky and had obviously not been cleaned properly for a while. There were also no biscuits provided with the tea/coffee.

The hotel was clean and a room space was adequate. The thing that makes this hotel stand out is a great location with easy access to Lygon street and the CBD. The price was very reasonable for this area.

We chose to stay here due to location, as we were attending the comedy festival at Trades Hall. Upon arrival the room was very clean, small, but very clean. Staff were friendly, we only saw one. It's disappointing that the bar is only open Sunday nights - yes Lygon Street is a stone throw away but sometimes a drink in... More

My Daughter and I stayed here Sundy night following our outing to Dirty Dancing. It is well situated, clean, nicely updated rooms, friendly staff and a 2 minute walk to fantastic Lygon Street. Will stay again. Great Avignon on site secure parking.

We stayed there for two nights. The hotel was built in the eighties and most of the parts remain the same with minimal updates. Although we stayed in an Executive Room, it was small for Australian standard. Besides two dining chairs and a small table, there was no lounge seats available. Message shower heads are claimed to be standard in... More
