The Internet Wifi connection did not work and as a result I had to go outside at 8am the next morning in search of a WiFi connection to participate in an Internet conference. The very purpose of me checking into a hotel room to attend the Internet based conference in peace and quiet was defeated. My friend and I tried... More

Good hotel for business or pleasure if in Carlton, comfy room, good service, parking on site. Staff were helpful and the express checkout meant no queuing in the morning. 11am checkout a bonus and close to Lygon street for great food.

We bought our stay through Expedia and got a great deal!! We checked in, the girl on the counter did not have a warming personality, but that did not effect my stay. I was there for a lovely night out and was very happy to be there. The car park is indeed very squishy (see previous comments) but provided what... More

The hotel is located just behind Lygon street which means that all your culinary needs are just a short stroll away. It is also a short cab ride into the city ($10-15 AUD, depending on traffic conditions of course) so it is a viable solution for a cheaper city alternative. The rooms are pretty small, however, they are clean and... More

Great location, close to restaurants in Lygon Street, walking distance to University of Melbourne, and Royal Melbourne Hospital, and to Melbourne Museum and Imax Theatre. Good place to stay for families with children.

Me and a friend stayed at the Best Western Travel Inn for a girly weekend break in Melbourne. We had a deluxe double room to share and were very happy with our stay. No complaints. The staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful! The hotel was clean, modern and comfortable! Massive, huge king size bed, clean modern bathroom, fridge, ironing... More

I had a wonderful time while staying at the Best Western in Carlton, it's close proximity to the CBD, access to public transport and local shops/restaurants. It was perfect for us as we were there for Oz Comic-Con. I found the room very comfortable and clean. The one downside was that on the Sunday evening , we experienced some disturbances... More

We stayed here recently and were pleasantly surprised at the value for money this hotel offered for its location. The room decor, whilst a bit dated, was certainly clean and tidy and housekeeping was regular and efficient. We had gone over for a football weekend and could not have had a better place, so close to Swanston Street and the... More

The room was spacious but badly laid out. There was a huge shower in the bathroom but very little storage space to put toiletries. There was no wifi in the rooms as they said they were updating the system, so any internet activities had to be carried out in the noisy and freezing cold reception. Housekeeping was hit and miss...
