We purchased an internet package for this hotel at a very cheap rate with a few inclusions including breakfast. Our room was on the ground floor just metres from a small central swimming pool and courtyard area. the room was refurbished and of a very good standard. Our room also had a window onto the road which I thought would... More

Friendly hotel in excellent location. Visit Melbourne frequently for work and this hotel makes being away from home easy. Parking available. Breakfast good. Rooms comfortable and staff friendly and professional. And in a great part of Melbourne.

All in all a good experience with all that I would expect in the standard of accommodation (unlike a recent stay at Best Western - Launceston) with friendly and attentive staff. Trouble with connecting to wifi through hotel's third party provider; which isn't the first time with that provider. Easy walking distance to parkland and the Muesum. Good tram service... More

This place is great, inexpensive and just what you want from a Best Western. Rooms were clean, bathroom clean, beds comfortable. There's a pool which would have been great to try if we had more time. This is a great location if you don't want to be right in the cbd but within walking distance. Also around the corner from... More

Very clean and spacious room, we were so happy we couldn't hear noises from the street. Sheets and towels clean as was the floors. Desk service was wonderful, and the lovely staff offered and suggested places to go. The only negative feedback I can give is the Bar downstairs is closed on Fri and Sat nights....I am very baffled as... More

This hotel is one of my favourites to stay in when wanting to eat on Lygon St. Ask for a room off the street as the noise on some nights can be a problem, other nights not so. I have suggested to them to double glaze the rooms across the front. I haven't used the pool but have breakfast when... More

The location of this hotel is excellent, especially for those who are going out for a meal in Lygon Street. At $15 per night, parking is provided at a reasonable cost, however the car park itself was a little pokey. For the cost, the room was adequate for our needs; neat, clean and well appointed but it was the bare... More

The suite room I was given was spacious and clean with basic amenities. Pillows and bed were comfortable. The free breakfast had a spread that accommodates different dietary requirements but the buffet spread was basically the same everyday. What stood out in my experience though was the poor customer service. I called for help for two nights, and both times... More

This is the second time I am staying in this hotel and my evaluation is still good. Clean, comfortable, close to the CBC and a large variety of good restaurants in Lygon street. Has a heated swimming pool and the inner court is quiet and fresh, ideal for relaxing,

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighborhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
