Travelled for an AFL Grand Final Party. Booked through Venere paid $89. Got a petite double room. Arrived early to drop off my bag and was able to check in early even though my room was not ready.

I stayed here for 2 nights for a business trip. I arrived early but the staff were more than happy to securely store my luggage while I roamed the city. The location makes it easy to explore the city either by foot or tram. Once in my room, the first thing I did was check out the bed. Seriously, this... More

A fantastic place to stay in Melbourne if you are planning to be out and about. The rooms are compact but more than adequate, the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Trams right outside the door, trains a short walk away and everywhere in the city is in comfortable walking distance.

Stayed during a boys trip to watch the footy and it was everything we needed. Rooms were a little small but clean, fair value and staff were excellent. Nice roof top bar but no toilet nearby so if you want to have a quiet beer on the roof you need to go back to your room to use the toilet.... More

I enjoyed my 2 night stay in Pensione Hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The common areas were clean, freshly painted and well styled. The rooms were small ( only suitable for one person) but clean, functional and attractive. I stayed in a back room which had windows that opened, a colleague was in a front room which had... More

Staff great, very informative and friendly. Quite basic rooms, but this is made up for by the location. Easy access to the free city centre tram. Close to central station also. Would stay again at this hotel

Quite ok hotel, small but really comfortable! A place I most certainly will return to if the cash will flow in. Furthermore, it was quite possible to negotiate a "flat rate" for wifi for the entire stay....

Very happy with our decision to stay here, paid a reasonable price online, check in was smooth and fast, room was small, but very tidy and modern with everything you need. They have a nice restaurant downstairs and the location is very convenient. No complaints, will definitely stay here again!
