This hotel is very close to Lygon Street, in the Italian district. It is reasonably priced, but rooms are quite small, but clean. Our renovated bathroom was brilliant, but oh so tiny! We stayed 3 nights, but after a horrible buffet breakfast on the first morning we ate in cafés around the corner at a much cheaper price with freshly... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over the anzac weekend. We have previously stayed here and have been extremely happy. This time we were put in a room just inside near the pool. It was very noisy. People sat outside smoking until about 2am and this was right outside our window. Also the door through to inside was noisy with... More

Clean, comfortable, quiet room great location. Close to shops, restaurants, bars, movies. Parking underneath. Nice pool. Friendly service. Short tram or taxi ride from central Melbourne CBD. Good value. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice to walk in to, check in was VERY slow even though it allready had been completed online. Car parking was a nightmare, we had booked a spot but when entering the car park it was very tight and I only had about an inch on either side of my car to squeeze through later when I went to get... More

Stayed for a few days visiting our family. The location is great for reading or at Lotion Street and we could walk almost anywhere including to public transport. Our room was super clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We had a quiet room that met all our needs. Sound sleep was not elusive. Returning soon.

very handy to Lygon street and walking distance to the Carlton Gardens for the Flower & Garden Show. We look forward to making this an accommodation fixture on our calendar when the show is on every year. Very clean, quite and comfortable.

Here for 3 nights in April, found the room to be very small with a small bathroom to match it. The hotel is some distance on foot from the city centre although there is a tram stop on an adjacent road. If you like eating Italian food then there are many located 150 yards away in Lygon Street. Just one... More

Stayed here for 6 nights while playing sport in Melbourne for the week. Great location close to Lygon Street and food that goes with Carlton. The room was comfy, clean and serviced every day. The pool was fantastic after a day playing sport to come back to and walk in to sooth sore muscles, a spa would have made it... More

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...
