When I arrived, I was unimpressed with the tiny lobby and the fact that access to the rooms required walking to an elevator in the car park. And the reception clerk who checked me in seemed a bit grumpy. But I quickly discovered that this is actually a quite decent place to stay. My room was large, in excellent condition,... More

Just a one night stay with my family. Room was renovated with a kitchenette but we did not use it due to the number of good restaurants in the area. Very clean and tidy, new carpet and furniture and newly renovated bathroom. Parking was a bit tight but it was secure. The only down side was the noise from busy... More

The staff were welcoming and friendly on arrival. The rates for the room was excellent (given where this place is located). The room was clean and tidy and we made up each day with clean towels and linen etc. I will certainly be staying there when next in Melbourne...

Lygon Lodge is situated in the heart of italian district of Melbourne.Very good location - just 20 minutes on foot to the main places of interest - Federation Square, the market, Chinatown, Carlton gardens. Lots of cafes and restaurants around. Things I didn't like at all - awful view from the hotel's rooms (dirty backyard), no breakfast, the entrance to... More

Just had a great stay here, right in the heart of Lygon St and only two blocks from the tram. Beds were a little uncomfortable, but that might be just me. Staff were very friendly, room was clean an tidy though front of house could do with a lick of paint. A great alternative to right in the CBD and... More

This place is overpriced. The good thing is the location, it´s right in the middle of Lygon St. However rooms are very basic and you´re much better off staying at one of the other places in the area for not much more. Downtowner on Lygon was a better choice.

Looks like they are at the end of refurbsihments with a few minor things to complete in reception and hallways. Room was of good quality and clean as well. Looked like a new bathroom. Only paid $120 but quality of room was better than that.

I booked here after looking at the website. When I arrived it didnt look anything like the site photos and the front desk staff were very unhelpful. The whole place was a building site. Like the others have said on here there were wires hanging from walls, peeling paint on the walls, it smelt and the furniture, walls and carpet... More

'When I arrived at Lygon Lodge I was surprised by the amount of renovations going on as when my work had booked me in here to attend a conference no one had mentioned it being under reno's. In fact my colleague, who checked in separately, initially commented to staff that she thought there was a mistake as they didnt look... More

Over the past two years I have stayed at Lygon Lodge about 5 times. Each time the staff have been friendly and helpful. My room has been average in size and clean. Since it is right on Lygon Street there are heaps of restaurants to dine in. There is no restaurant on the premises, but breakast can be taken care... More
