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

I stayed here for 4 nights with a tour group. Most of our group had rooms round the courtyard pool, which were rather dark and noisy, but I was lucky and had a room with a roof top view at the end of the corridor (302), which was large and light. There were issues with the staff: at breakfast on... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Location is good - right near Lygon St with plenty of eating options/people watching and about a 10 to 15 minute walk and you're in the city centre. Room was very comfortable and we had plenty of space. Breakfast was good - not a massive number of choices but enough to set you up for... More

Stay here when visiting Melbourne. One street over from the infamous Lygon St strip of countless Italian restaurants. Two streets over from trams into CBD (3 stops). Hotel is very comfortable, we were upgraded to a king size bed! Pleasant décor.

We had a room looking out over the pool around which the hotel is built. It was excellent and quiet. The breakfast is wonderful with a great plate of fresh fruit available. The hotel is in the centre of a very vibrant area full of restaurants and good public transport links and good value for a hotel in a major... More

Well appointed rooms offered comfort and value for money. Bathroom was small in comparison to similar hotels, but it was ok for me! Lots of restaurants one block away to savour. If you are looking for real value for money, try this property.
