“Great spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

My Husband and I stayed for 5 nights last years. Very central to everything. Checking in was easy and the staff were efficient. Room was clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was continental style and was more than enough to keep you going. Would stay again when in Melbourne.

We booked 7 rooms for one week from Bali to attend Indonesia Festival on Queen South Bank Square near Yarra River on mid September 2012 . This hotel has a great location in CBD , you have to visit Sambal Kampung near the hotel for asian food , their laksa and won ton soup very nice.

Also you have to visit china town for excellent chinese food .

We check in in the morning and reception finally let we check in early before check in time. Excellent job for Paul Koenig ( GM ) and his staff , thank you for good service.

I booked this hotel with my Avios/AirMiles on the basis of other reviews here on TripAdvisor, and was not disappointed with what I got. The location of this hotel is its main selling point - slap bang in the centre of the CBD - with Flinders St train station within easy walking distance, and other sites such as the MCG, Fed Square etc. not far away. The room I stayed in was great, with a comfortable bed and had to be the quietest I've slept in for such a city centre location. The continental breakfast provided was more than adequate - although the basement location of the restaurant doesn't exactly lend much in the way of ambience, this wasn't a major issue for me.
All in all, a great little hotel right in the middle of the action.

Room Tip: I was on the seventh floor overlooking the Equitable Place laneway - very quiet, so I slept like a l...

We arrived to check-in at the hotel around 11pm at night and requested to for a late check out at the end of our 3 night stay. They were kind enough to let us check out at noon. You could also leave your luggage at the hotel after you have checked out and want to do some last minute shopping!

The hotel is situated in an alley way which is clean and has many cafes and small lunch places, therefore you won't starve!

Security is really good, as you need your hotel key card to enter the main entrance after 10pm and to also take the lift to your room.

We had a king size bed in a spacious room equipped with a tv, fridge, safe, ironing board/iron, mini bar, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer, slippers and bathrobes. Complimentary newspapers are available on request.

The bathroom was equipped with shampoo/conditioner, soap, shower cap, sanitary bags and cotton buds. The room overall is modern, new and clean. There is only a shower and no bath tub.

The airconditioner wasn't working very well and was a little hot at night. The organza curtain had a coat of thick dust which was very odd. the toilet roll holder was about to fall off, that would be our only complaints.

The room was very quiet and you are unable hear your neighbours or the outside traffic.

You are only 1 minute walk from a 7/11 store, pharmacy and alot of places to eat. This was definately value for money and will return on our next visit to Melbourne.

We booked online at the Hotel's website and got better rates than on wotif for a deluxe king room at only $154 for a Saturday night during footy season finals! The room was a reasonable size with a small desk area and two armchairs. The room was very clean and the king bed was very comfy. The walk in shower in the bathroom was massive! Only a minor complaint but the shower rose is quite high and I am not very tall so I couldn't reach it to adjust it. The bathroom has all the normal hotel toiletry amenities except it does not have a body lotion. The hairdryer worked well as did the iron. We ended up dining in the hotel's restaurant Sotto and the meal was quite nice. Nothing fancy, and presentation could be better but the food was fine and service was friendly. My friend and I shared the warm olive & fetta entree which was really nice. All in all if you can't be bothered wandering out for a meal you could do a lot worse than dine here. The decor is a bit uninspiring in the restaurant which is a pity.

We recently stayed at the Causeway 353. We had a corner Studio room on the 7th floor. The room was quite roomy with a reasonable amount of storage space for our luggage. The bed was comfortable, but I found the pillows a tad too soft for me. The bathroom had plenty of shelf space for toiletries, the towels were quite large and it was very clean. The one drawback is the shower over the bath, but there is accommodation available with just the shower apparently. There is an excellent promotional book about places to visit in Victoria, and the city environs, in the rooms. The rooms are very clean and the food in the dining area is quite good, with a variety of food offerings, The one compplaint was the wine list, it was top heavy with New Zealand wines and I believe in supporting Australian producers!

Stayed at this property for 5 nights in mid-Aug and the stay was quite comfortable and nice. After a 14hr flight we arrived early morning around 5am and we could not check -in, when we requested, the staff were quite understanding and made arrangements for us to check-in at 7am. The room was spacious and clean. The best part of the hotel is its location. It is close to most of the shopping areas, restaurants and attractions. The nearest railway station is Flinders street railway station which is just 5-8 mins walk, just next to Federation Square ( the melbourne information center) and the city circle tram station(the free tourist tram). It is also just 20mins walk to Melbourne cricket ground and Rod laver arena. This place is ideal for all those who want to stay within the CBD limits and close to everything.
