I stayed here with a friend for our first trip to Melbourne. The location is perfect! Just a 2 minute walk to Bourke Street Mall and all major tram services. The room wasn't anything special but it was clean and useable. The breakfast room is also well organised, topped up regularly it has pancakes, cereal, juice, hot drinks, fruit and... More

Walked into our room and was smaller than what the pictures made it out to be. Stayed for 5 nights had towels changed but wasn't cleaned throughout our stay. Had to go to the reception to ask for another roll of toilet paper. Our room was small with a window that didn't open. Felt claustrophobic. Beds were good. Excellent location... More

Very inexpensive and right in the heart of Melbourne. Walking and tram distance to everything. Comfortable room just the basics bed tv bathroom. Very quiet, 24hr helpful receptionist. Highly recommend when on a budget. Close to the trendy flinders lane for dinner dining.

This is an Ex Formule One Accor Hotel recently branded Ibis Budget. The hotel is a rabbit warren of corridors and all in need of a coat of paint as indeed was the room. It was however tidy and the bedding clean. Breakfast was continental and help yourself. It was clearly popular with young Asian tour Groups. It is well... More

I stayed here with my wife and daughter in October 2013. It was really nice experience. Staffs are friendly and helpful. The hotel is just couple of minutes away from every attraction that Melbourne CBD has to offer. I'd recommend it highly.

Good value for money, the hotel was very close to the train station and only a short stroll to the mall. The room itself was small, but comfortable and very clean. On a small negative note, there were construction works going on outside the hotel at the time of our stay, so the noise from construction woke us early each... More

I had to go to Melbourne for a job interview and I stayed here for two nights. I found it clean, comfortable and the staff great. The hotel had everything that I needed, including coat hangers in my room and an ironing board down stairs. The location was near the shopping and over the road from The Block. I would... More

I will definitely return to this hotel and recommend others to do so too. Thank you for giving me and my family such a fantastic time there in Melbourne. On a side note,... More

I have to say I quite liked this hotel. Look, it's cheap BUT it is very central and I must say that I found it very quiet and pretty well cared for. The rooms are small, basic but cleaned daily. The bathrooms are tiny, but also clean and there was plenty of hot water. If you want somewhere fancy, look... More
