Booked in for 3 days last weekend 3 to 5 May. Booked through expedia. 2 plane tickets from Gold Coast to Melbourne, 3 nights accommodation for 2 at Travelodge Southbank Melbourne for $570 - BARGAIN! I thought the hotel might have been a little on the downside considering we paid a bargain price for the plane tickets and accommodation. We arrived at about 9pm on Friday - check in wasn't an issue - 10 minutes later we were in the room. Clean, basic, 9th floor and best of all - no noise. This was one of the quietest hotels I have ever experienced. Being on the 9th floor might have helped but I didn't hear a thing each night we slept. Great location right on southbank. Just a short stroll across the pedestrian bridge, through Flinders Street Station and you are in the city. The casino was about a 5 minute walk west on the hotel, Eureka Tower was right next door too. Great bars and cafes are directly outside or if you want something cheaper - the city is like 5 minutes walk across the bridge. I worked out we spent about $50 a night on accommodation at Travelodge for 2 of us. Expedia (if you book early) is definitely the way to go if you want to book this hotel. My only gripe - the shower although hot and plenty of water, sprays water over at least half of the bathroom. highly recommend you get a higher floor (11 floors all up) if you want a 100% quiet night - I didn't even hear a door slam and the whole time we stayed there we didn't pass any other guests in the hallway on the 9th floor.
