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

I stayed here with my younger sister and we absolutely loved it!! Staff were brilliant, room extremely clean and the location was second to none. Situated in Chinatown, the hotel is seconds away from some of the nicest and cheapest eats in Melbourne and a quick stroll to 3 of Melbourne's best theatres. We loved it !!!

Came for a couple of nights on our way to Tassie. Very cheap and comfortable with the entertainment and food precinct very close. Staff are friendly and helpful. Only a 300 metre stroll to trams and buses. Breakfast of cereal and toast are left in your room each night. Will definitely stay again.

Keeping in mind that this hotel must qualify as budget accommodation in Melbourne, it was very satisfactory. The location was great with a city tram stop not far around the corner and the theatre district (and associated dining spots) within easy walking range. Our room had been recently refurbished and was clean and comfortable. The bed was fine. The breakfast... More

The location was perfect, staff friendly and rooms clean. Unfortunately our room was smaller than expected and extremely overdue for a refurb. The light breakfast was enough to kick start the day, particularly if you are planning lunch in one of the fantastic restaurants nearby.

This is a small apartment hotel. It doesn't belong to a chain. It was comfortable, the apartments small but clever design. Clean, comfortable beds, fast good free wireless broadband and fantastic bathroom. The breakfast is free and delivered to the apartment in the morning so we could eat the bread for lunch instead of breakfast. There is a desk so... More
