Good cheap accommodation close to MCG, Tram and Train stops and walking distance to City, Bridge Street shopping, Smith Street shopping and Punt Road. Fantastic for a Richmond supporter. Good clean accommodation with fantastically friendly staff. If you want a 5 star experience don't stop here but for the budget conscious it is fantastic

On a budget and wanting to stay close to Richmond, MCG or the city, this place is ok for the cost. The rooms are fairly spacious, but on the old side. Car parking is available but very limited. Small cars will fit but anything larger than a hatch back or Hyundai forget it, street parking if your lucky...

The location is great as walking distance to Melbourne sports precinct. Staff at reception very nice and helpful especially when they said there was no parking available I showed them my confirmation booking stating free parking not "free limited parking" as they stated it was. This was rectified by them providing me a resident permit to allow me to park... More

I had a very good experience staying with my mother and brother at George Powlett. Reception and staff very friendly and always eager to help. Clean rooms and affordable. Warm water available for showers, Wifi with high speed. Location is great, train and tram easily accessible just a couple of mins of walk away. Close to city and beautiful Fitzroy... More

Upside: Great location, only a 15 minute walk to where we needed to go for a concert, it was cheap, especially for such a busy weekend in Melbourne, had all appliances we needed, receptionist was very lovely and extremely helpful, lending a pair of scissors when needed as well as other useful information. Downside: We booked a queen bed studio... More

George Powlett apartments are in the perfect location for what we went to Melbourne for. We went to watch a game of AFL at the MCG and it's only a short walk to the ground. The room we stayed in was a bit dated but clean and very well priced. It's close to a tram stop so it's very easy... More

the room had not been cleaned, the bunk beds had not been made and the room smelt of mold. There was no smoke detector, all taps leaked, the double bed springs where popping out and the bathroom door did not close correctly - NOT worth the money we paid.

Cheap hotel a short walk across parklands to CBD and free trams in there, Very close to MCG. Reasonable walk to Bridge Road and then Chapel street. Free parking available (although parking would not be easy as spaces are very tight)

We stayed here as it was close to Rod Laver Arena where we attended a concert but we booked 2 nights so we could have a little break. I knew that it wouldn't be flashy and didn't expect it either. But we went home after one night. Here's why - fails to mention no elevator. Problem for my asthmatic brother... More
