This was my second stay here and would still recommend as a great value place to stay - nice rooms, nothing too flash. Great location around the corner from Lygon Street and about a 20 minute walk to the city.

Close to everything, walking distance to CBD and Lygon Street just around the corner. Rooms clean and comfortable and free parking was an incentive. Downside, when checking in the reception staff informed me the room had just gone up $15 per night, in the last half hour, from what was advertised in the morning, (probably should have made enquiries in...

Location wise - fantastic, less than 2kms to CBD. Credit to the housekeeping team as the bathroom was so clean with extra towels (bath sheet size) and amenities. Would definitely stay here again. Only down side was that I tried to use the complimentary gym at the Uni of Melbourne but unfortunately it is closed on the weekends despite staff... More

I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip. Check-in and check-out no problem. Staff friendly and helpful. My room was quiet, comfortable and clean. It was one of those that do not overlook the pool; I suspect the rooms that do overlook said pool could get a bit noisy in summer. Free parking is handy, if a little... More

This hotel is right in the thick of things...Tourist Bus is around the corner...great dining options, La Mama Theatre, Melbourne Museum, Potter Museum all in walking distance. Melbourne Museum is the farthest away at 20 minutes. Extremely knowledgeable staff...ask Shannon to help you. He knows everything and how to get there. Great bed, quiet room, nice bathtub.

I have stayed at this hotel on a couple of occasions and have this hotel to be in perfect location for just about everything but in particular Lygon St and all its eateries. The rooms are all on the smallish side, however the beds are super comfy and there is a fridge in the room but no mini bar. There... More

I've stayed here many times for business trips. This time I had room 218. An executive room, the bed was comfortable and room was quiet. The location is super convenient for CBD meetings. The staff are friendly and helpful. My preferred place to stay when in Melbourne for work.

Very poor according to the staff members, Best western had four Star rating with client reviews of 4+ on a 5 scale maximum. I booked on that basis. This is what they said. The rooms are not very nice, the beds are uncomfortable and worst of all you can hear everything in the rooms around us. And I mean everything!... More
