This hotel is in a great central location. We have stayed here before and returned as the price is reasonable and includes cold buffet breakfast. Just around the corner from the Town Hall, ideal during the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Rooms are basic and a little grubby. The room wasn't dirty, just tired with marks on the walls and carpet which... More

We booked this hotel for our 2-day sightseeing in the city before our flight home to UK. The location was fantastic for this - tucked up a side street but right in the centre, so handy for all the main sights (3 minutes or so from Fed Square!). The room was very clean and there were complimentary apples, bottled water... More

The Hotel Causeway is situated in a fantastic location! It's found in one of the neat little alleyways between the major streets (can be a little tricky to find initially) but it also means its pretty quiet. It's only a short walk from many cafes and restaurants to choose from on the Causeway itself, as well as Degraves St and... More

Hotel has many problems that mainly stem from bad staff and that the hotel is in an inappropriate building. It's in an old apartment block by the looks of it - thin hallways, small rooms, old slugging lift and rooftop on building. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful actually, but the cleaning staff terrible. The rooms are downright... More

I spent the weekend in Melbourne at the Hotel Causeway and was disappointed. The location was great as it was close to shopping and laneway cafes. The room was too hot as the air conditioning was not working. The bin had not been emptied from the last guest, there was mould on the shower floor and the skirting board was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst touring Australia. The hotel entrance is situated in a precinct off Little Collins Street but is only a 30 second walk from the road. Check in was smooth. The room was adequate for our stay. The breakfast was also fine if not startling. All in all a mediocre hotel but in a superb... More

Rooms were clean and comfortable, albeit basic. The building is tired and needs painting and renovation. No channel 7 reception, so we couldn't watch the Aus Open tennis on TV. Also, a builder started hammering on the floor above our room from 7am onwards - when I complained (politely) the reception girl basically couldn't care less and fobbed us off... More

Stayed there for the tennis last week, heatwave in Melbourne and no air condioning and very little T.V. They didn,t offer us a fan at all. The Breakfast room was very, very hot, with not even a fan in there, butter and margarine melting. No assistance at all. Would never ever stay there again or recomend it to anyone else.... More

Top position, quiet, good staff, clean and tidy but when things go wrong don't expect any help from management. Heat wave in Melbourne and no air conditioning. Not a good time for staff to tell us to leave the air con when it doesn't work. No assistance at all. No communication. TV didn't work on some channels and told that... More
