We booked this room for a business trip as it was close to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, just across the river and it was very reasonably priced for the twin room. However, the overall space was not well designed and for 2 work colleagues it provided little personal space. Particularly the very pokey bathroom, which was about 6 inches away... More

The Penisone Hotel is a greatly located hotel in the CBD with the Southbank on one side and the city on the other. It's only a short walk from Spencer Street station if you want to get a train or the sky is to the airport, there's also a tram stop right outside the door. We booked a twin room... More

I stayed at the Pensione hotel for 5 nights. It's only a few minutes away from the Skybus, Southern Cross Station, and tram stops. The staff there are pleasant and helpful, they offer complimentary wifi and the room that I stayed in was clean, quiet, tidy and in good condition. The only downsides were that the Optus signal for my... More

Room was good and quiet. Staff friendly and efficient. Can recommend it's excellent location. The bathrooms are a bit small but do the job just fine and all you need is supplied. Cleanliness is Australian Standard (not Swiss...) and ok.

Congratulations to staff at Pensione Melbourne who made us vet welcome and were very helpful as we navigated GF weekend. The location near the key tram lines meant we could travel easily in and out of the city. Only downside- could not watch NRL preliminary finals in our room due to limited TV channels. We will go back.

Stayed here on business for 2 nights and overall I got what my boss paid for ($100 per night for a single room). Proximity to Southern Cross Station and the convention centre on the South Wharf was convenient. The building has nice charm and the common area a nice boutique hotel touch. I was however let down by the male... More

Stay was okay. I did not have the opportunity to interact with staff a lot. However the staff was very empathetic during my stay. I didn't have the opportunity to try the restaurant. I also liked their package in the bathrooms.

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.
