Hi, Just wondering if anyone can help with some advice. My mother and I are travelling to Melbourne for the first time for three nights in January (happens to coincide with Australian Open which unfortunately makes accommodation expensive and somewhat scarce). We require a twin share studio or ideally a twin share one bedroom apartment with two separate beds. We wish to stay in the CBD in close walking distance to some of the major attractions and public transport. We also wish to stay in a part of town that is considered reasonably safe as we may come and go (from dinner etc) in the evening. Our budget is under $350/night which limits things considerably at that time of year unfortunately:( I didn't realise we'd chosen Aus Open weekend to travel!). As I am unfamiliar with Melbourne, can anyone advise re best area to stay (or avoid). We had considered Oaks on Market, but I gather this is in the middle of office buildings and perhaps a bit scarey/lonely at night? Had also considered Mantra on Little Bourke but wasn't sure if this was a dodgey area? I had read that Kings Road could be questionable. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Twin rooms are harder to find than I had realised. Many hotels offer one bed per room - full stop. Many thanks in anticipation of any suggestions.
