This hotel has such potential. I arrived with high expectations after reading reviews and at first wasn't disappointed. There are loads of positives that make it wonderful: * price is fantastic in comparison to city hotels, we paid $150AUD p.n for a weekend double * location is fantastic just on the edge of Chinatown (so many places to eat) *...

Currently staying at City Limits for our last night out of 5. Unfortunately this hotel is only average. I didn't have high expectations given other reviews, but it's still a little below what I would have liked. Location: Situated right at the top of Little Bourke St near parliament, it's not the most convenient location if you've come to Melbourne... More

Stayed in City Limits for a week. It is impeccably clean, extremely comfortable, and the staff are friendly, helpful and professional. It is perfectly located for Melbourne CBD, Chinatown and tramlines: we walked everywhere with no issues. Free Wifi (bit only on 2 devices) was reliable. Rooms did feel cold but warmed up quickly via the AC/Heating unit. Breakfast was... More

This hotel is situated close too all theatres, staff were very friendly and helpful. Being in little Burke st there are an abundance of restaurants to choose from. Rooms are not large but are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast provisions are basic, what you would expect at the price.

I normally go for better than average accommodation (eg: new, one bedroom apartments) because if I am spending on a holiday, I'd like it to not be dodgy in any way, and everything to go smoothly. I don't regret choosing this place one bit, and will be coming back if I visit again. I read the reviews extensively, and one... More

Don't expect 5 star, but for the money you pay this accommodation is value for money. Firstly the location is excellent, in Chinatown, close to food , shopping and public transport If you are in Melbourne for a show you cannot get much closer. The staff are very friendly and helpful, allowing us to store our bags before heading off... More

This hotel has good size rooms, with comfortable beds and a good sized kitchenette. The bathroom is on the smaller side but has a bath and a shower, some mould in grout due to ventilation issues, however they do their best to keep it clean. The hotel is walking distance to Parliament Station and Spring St Tram Stop. Perfect location... More

Stayed here in a studio apartment for 2 nights in June and found a little gem in little Bourke st. Room was basic but had everything we needed and was extremely well cared for. The budget price included continental breakfast tray delivered to room each day and daily servicing. Staff were helpful and friendly and we could not fault the... More

Good location at the top of China Town in Melbourne. Simple breakfast provided. Continental, ok and the staff on reception are very friendly. Parking is next door in the open but safe. Would recommend this for someone who is not looking for opulence but would like warm comfortable lodgings in Melbourne.
