I stayed here for eight nights, my first time in Melbourne. My review is based on it as a budget hotel. The bed was very comfortable, the room and ensuite clean, and the amenities all I required. Due to a new wifi system, my first room didn't get a signal (the new system had just been installed), but they not... More

What more can I say that the title doesn't say! This was a lovely 'surprise'...to find a convenient, clean, safe, 'bolt-hole' to stay in a very convenient location in Melbourne (transport at the door etc!). Very compact, but everything I needed, including a Thai massage at the entrance to the Hotel - bliss after long journey and sitting all day... More

This is the second time we have used The Pensione Hotel as our base in Melbourne. It is a grate location, value for money and an affordable option for a busy stay in Melbourne. Small rooms but good night's sleep with comfortable beds and pillows. Very friendly and helpful staff.

The room was small however the location and price could not be beat. Check-in and check-out was efficient, and there was no issues with the room other than being smaller than expected. That said, I would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a cheap, overnight stay in the city.

This hotel is located close the the convention centre making it the perfect location when attending conventions. The rooms are small but clean and contain everything you need for a short city stay....

Booked a budget room as I flew in late and left the city early the next day. The room was very small and basic but suited my needs well. Close to transport , I would definitely stay again but would upgrade the room if I was staying for longer.

We hired the triple bed accommodation as we had a function at the Melb Convention Ctr which was a short walk away. Room was clean, compact & simple. It's definitely value for money for a quick overnight stay. Bathroom is tiny but you get what you pay for I guess. In terms of location, it's a little ghetto but it's... More

This hotel has an excellent location easy walking distance from many Melbourne attractions, trams and buses. Despite being on a main road the room was very quiet. The shower had good pressure and temperature control. The only minor cons are the somewhat slow elevators (but there are only 3 levels so you can use the stairs if this bothers you)... More

Close to everything we wanted to do. Clean room. Staff were positive, polite and very helpful. We arrived a few hours early and our room was ready for us. When checking out we were able to store our bags and have more of a look around Melbourne before our flight home. The young man at the reception assisted with directions... More
