“Good honest value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I chose LL for price, which was very competitive. The room was clean and well-looked after. Front desk service was friendly and staff very helpful. The location is perfect for people who want the Lygon St experience, though I chose it because it was within walking distance to Uni of Melbourne. The room was comfortable and the wifi worked well. I didn't have a car, but I thought the free parking was a great money-saving bonus. I will definitely stay there again. Although right on Lygon Street, noise was at a minimum and I was able to sleep well.

Found this motel on Trip Advisor. Even though the motel is located on Lygon Street, the rooms are set back off the street. Off street, secure parking accessed from a back lane.

Room was extremely quiet. Bed was comfortable and bathroom had been recently renovated.

Situated right amongst the restaurants.

Walking down Lygon street you could easily miss this little gem.

I Recommend staying here.

We checked in late, so there were no car parking spaces left and this was the only negative about this hidden little gem. The bed was comfortable and even though the room was small, was more than adequate for our needs. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure good. It's great that the front desk is maned 24hrs, so we always felt safe.

Nice apartment with balcony but no view! Off main street so nice and quiet. 24 hours front desk manned by lovely staff and fantastic car park attendant!! Daily servicing which we found unusual in an apartment but appreciated! Car park free of charge but don't be too late getting back! We walked to princess theatre and federation square with ease! Would definitely stay there again!

This location was recommended to me and the stay was great. Right in the middle of famous Lygon St.
I believe all the rooms have just been modernised and now are very nice.
My bed was very comfortable, the shower nice and big , plenty of hot water and spacious.
Parking is available via a back lane.
Recommend to all for a nice place to stay in the Lygon, Carlton area.

My wife has stayed twice (once with me), whilst attending a conference at Royal Melbourne Hospital. Short walk to hospital(10-15mins). Hotel was great value considering the location. Close to a multitude of restaurants. Only a short walk to Swanston Street to catch a tram to city or just walk down. Wi-Fi was excellent. We have only stayed mid-week which was pretty quiet. I imagine on weekends it could get a bit noisy with the Lygon street activity. Great because you have kitchen facility so you can self-cater. Highly recommended mainly due to the location and price. We are already planning our next stay there.

Just spent 3 days here. The room was comfortable and well presented. The bathroom was small, but very modern with a large shower. The staff were friendly and I assume this is a family run hotel. Only two things I would note. Availability of parking is hit and miss (first come first served), though I did get Parking when I needed it. The other thing was no sheer curtains to allow natural light in without being seen from outside. Will definitely use again.
