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.

City Limits Apartments while fairly basic is a reasonably priced comfortable and clean accommodation. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful over my two night stay. Location is excellent being just 50 metres from Melbourne's Chinatown. The apartment had all the expected inclusion, with a good firm bed. Kitchen was well appointed with a light breakfast included.... More

Went with my 2 girls, aged 11 and 12. This was a great location - a minute's walk to the free city circle tram and very close to cool restaurants, bars and shops in the pretty end of town. Clean and comfy, plenty of power outlets, pillows, chairs, lights and all you need. Handy to have easy peasy breakfast included... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and could not believe how good it was. It is in an out of the way street but the Sky bus from the airport dropped us right at the door. The hotel is very close to Parliament and the free tram so we got to see around the CBD easily by... More

We arrived and were immediately upgraded to a balcony room, all in the room was very clean, and all that we needed, we walked to The Regent Theatre. Very good place to stay. Cafe was not open Sunday night :( so we ate somewhere else.

City Limits is ideally located near Parliament Station and trams, with restaurants close by. The rooms are typical hotel size but come equipped with TV (all stations available without interference), microwave,plates, sink, iron, hairdryer etc. One can actually open the windows, rather than being caged in! Take a stroll across the road to a great Greek Restaurant or venture further... More

City Limits Hotel was great place to stay. It has a central location and is within walking distance of the main streets of Melbourne. The Parliament House stop on the city trams is across from the hotel, (the dark red trams provide free transport around the city centre and the green ones charge).The receptionist was helpful giving me directions and...

We stayed in here for 3 nights. The location was very convenient for the attractions we wanted to see in Melbourne. The Skybus drops you right at the door. Free tram runs very close making it easy to get around, although we were able to walk to most locations. Rooms were clean and comfortable and it was nice to have... More
