I stayed two nights at the Travel Inn and found it to be welcoming, elegant, exceptionally clean and a brilliant location. The staff were very friendly and efficient and went the extra mile to be helpful. The room was everything I needed (with a really comfortable bed) but sadly I didn't have time to enjoy the lovely pool. I would... More

I stayed for just one night for business, my workshop was at Melbourne Uni so this hotel was close. I booked an Executive room which (in capitals) indicated for the extra cost, on the booking information, that the room had superior furnishings, massage shower head, LCD TV etc. when I got to the room, it had a very small window...

Booked accommodation here due to proximity to University of Melbourne. First impression was good. Modernish decor and reasonable reception staff. However I was soon apprehensive. Two buses were parked at the front door and were unloading multitudes of visitors into the lobby. We couldn't get to the car park. Once inside we inspected our room.101 -here's the tip - insist...

We stayed here for the AU Grand Prix in March. The location is nice. It's near the University of Melbourne and Lygon street restaurants. The staff was friendly and courteous but not overly. The room was OK and was about as expected. The lighting is fluorescent so it doesn't cast the room in a great light but there is a... More

While the room was very clean it was equally tiny. With a queen bed & a single there was barely space to get by each other ( only 2 of us) when getting ready for our night out. The bathroom supposedly had a 1.5 shower but was barely a standard size & the toilet was so close to the wall... More

Staying here for a few nights, 3 days to go. Hope they are better than last night. Awakened at 5AM by one of the staff in the pool area (overlooked by many rooms) bellowing into her mobile phone (why do people do that? Don't they understand that speaking so loudly doesn't help anyone?) awakening everyone that had rooms overlooking the... More

Stayed here Sat 25 Jan. Paid $180 directly via hotel including secure under hotel parking but not breakfast. This hotel is in a really good location - right between the Melbourne Museum/Imax and Lygon St, Carlton for the eateries (approx. 1 short block each direction). We checked in, parked the car in the security parking and it stayed there until... More
