A beautiful boutique hotel in a great spot. I chose the Petite Double Room, which is perfect for 1 or 2. The MicroCloud bedding was heavenly, easily the 2nd best hotel bed I've slept in. Staff are A1.

Pensione is a small budget hotel on Spencer Street. Very helpful staff. Clean room and wonderful bed, best bed in a hotel in ages. Great location on all the tram and train routes. Excellent value for money. Got a great bed and breakfast deal as we stayed 6 nights.

Great location just about 5 mins from southern cross station and the Skybus airport bus drop/pick off point. But the rooms are very small. I stayed with a friend we had 2 single beds and she couldn't walk past my bed without shuffling sideways.. it's fine if it is for 1 person but tight for 2 people. Our bathroom sliding... More

I now see little reason to stay elsewhere when visiting Melbourne, which I may need to do more frequently for a while. This hotel is so convenient in all sorts of ways, near the station, including the airport bus terminal, and near many tram routes. It's also easy to get to the middle of the CBD on foot. As ever,...

I recently stayed at the Pensione Hotel which is in a really handy spot if you are going to the Etihad Stadium or the Crown Casino. The room was small - not a problem, the bed was very comfortable as were the pillows BUT the bathroom was ridiculous. The door in to the shower was so small I could hardly... More

Great location is its strength. The rooms are tiny, far too small. If you just need a bed to sleep thats all it is good for. The hold of $100 on your credit card for 6 days is outrageous given they have no mini bar.

Excellent service and nice place. But the room where I stayed, (with perhaps the most comfortable bed I have slept in) had a ridiculously narrow door to get into the shower. This was difficult to get in and out of with a pregnancy bump, to the extent that I have scratches from catching as I squeezed through the doorway. Shame,... More

Myself and two of my girlfriends shared a triple room (one of the few hotels providing 3 single beds) at the Pensione Hotel in Melbourne. We really enjoyed the Hotel vibes, location was excellent, room was perfect - basic, clean, reasonable size, windows that opened and everything worked ie. kettle, hairdryer, hotwater etc. and staff were friendly, efficient and helpful....

We chose this hotel because of its position, which didn't disappoint. Close to Spencer Street Station, the River and Docklands, and close to the tram stop for the Circle Tram. The staff were very efficient and friendly, the room was clean and the bed was really comfortable. The room was a good size (we read they were very small), and... More

We recently stayed at the Pensione Hotel when enroute to a wedding in rural Victoria. We chose this hotel primarily for it's proximity to Southern Cross Train Station as we were arriving in Melbourne late at night and departing the following morning, and didn't want to lug our bags across town. The hotel is about a 3-5 minute walk from... More
