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

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

This is a decent hotel, on Lygon Street, with great Italian eateries. Have stayed there three times now. On the second time we had a fantastic room which had been refurbished. The third time we were given an older room with a very average bed, which we sunk into the middle of. However I would stay there again. It is... More

I stayed here one night in May 2007. My office had booked a room with kitchen facilities for almost 2 weeks, but I had to find somewhere else to stay after the first night as this venue was not suitable. I believe the nightly rate was $120/night. I arrived the morning at 9am to check-in. I was given keys to... More
