This hotel seems to have been recently renovated, and it is very comfortable. My room was a great place to relax, and it's well located in China town. Service was very good -- the staff were polite and friendly. There was a little noise at night -- not too loud, and it didn't last long, it didn't really bother me,... More

I was thankful for how clean this hotel is but very basic. There is limited parking available for $25 per night but it's very difficult to park in. The provided breakfast was limited and glad it was only me as there was only 2 butters which wasn't enough for my toast. The hotel is central and was close to my... More

Only stayed a night but the staff were friendly and helpful. Great place to stay if you are catching a stage show and lots of eateries being china town just down the road. The room is clean and although not modern it was homely clean and just what we needed.

Great place clean and tidy great Chinese restaurant right next door . Just a short walk to tram stops so open up to visit all of Melbourne's attractions also fairly near the Melbourne Cricket Ground which was the main reason for my visit .

Very close to MCG average, clean room. Everything you need included. Only negative was getting the run around. Started at address on receipt, had to walk a few streets away to reception then from reception almost a km to room. For the price I was very happy.

We stayed here as part of a girls trip and had plenty of room with three of us for our luggage and all important shopping. It was quite clean although bathroom was a little dilapidated. Brekky was basic, but adequate for when you are on the run to the shops. Conveniently located in China town and close to shops, theatres... More

We were overall very happy with City Limits. It's an older hotel that has been freshly refurbished. The apartment was very clean and tidy and was serviced daily. The staff was very friendly and took time to explain things to us as we were new to the City. The hotel is on the high end of Chinatown but was within... More

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 days, we were looking for a price friendly and well-located hotel with breakfast included, and this one turned out to be a great find! The hotel (as stated on its name) is more like a serviced apartment, which means that it is different from traditional hotels. The check in and... More

SUMMARY . . . well worth the stay . . . good price & value, THOUGH I wasn't happy to see my review on CITY LIMITS own website disappear, presumably due to the slight negative comment below. I guess I'd be naïve to think any business online is as perfect as their reviews they leave 'up' would have us believe.... More
