“Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We were very happy to have found this little very cozy hotel. The rooms are very nice, relaxing, comfortable and have everything you need. The bathroom is nice and clean and also has everything some of what you could possible need. We got to the hotel around 11 in the morning and we were allowed to check in into the room. Accommodation was lovely, service was fantastic.We had the most comfortable night sleep. Very handy! The hotel is conveniently located - location is right in the CBD. Close to department stores, restaurants and tourist attractions. Free wifi all over the hotel.

Perfect! We will for sure return to this hotel next time we are in Melbourne. Everything was just wonderful. Really, really loved it here. Nothing was too much trouble. Was happy with the price I paid for the service I received.

I was dubious about the City Limits, given it's location, I thought the price was way too cheap.

Fortunately the hotel exceeded my expectations, it was clean, and had all of the facilities I was looking for for a 4 night stay.

The furnishings were modern, clean and well looked after, bathroom likewise, clean with a good sized tub for a soak after a day of walking around Melbourne.

The included breakfast suited me down to the ground, as the time difference from Perth made it too tempting to sleep in - Simple, but filling, cereal, Toast and a selection of Juice selected on an order sheet and left in the room's refrigerator daily for the following day.

My only bug-bear with the hotel was the occasional noise from the restaurants and apartments nearby, which disturbed my sleep.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 8th floor will be a lot quieter than those lower will have more street noise.

My friend and I enjoyed our stay here. Slightly pricey?? maybe because the Melbourne cup was on?? which we went to and had a great time.

City Limits is on Little Bourke street which is in China Town, so this means heaps of Asian restaurants very close by, ie walking distance. We enjoyed eating out in the area. Room was very clean, was serviced daily, reception staff helpful (apart from one grumpy lady).

We stayed here as part of Business visit and will recommend it as it is in CBD v.near to major transport and nearby attractions. Room and bathroom were clean with daily cleaning and with free bkfst and Wifi. Bkfst means set of predefined stuff kept 1 day in advance in your room fridge.
Overall had a plesant stay and would recommend to others

Room Tip: Take a room facing the road to have a wonderful view of City skyline

This is a good little apartment. My partner and I stayed here about a yr ago and we are about to head back. Very convienent and comfortable. Good size room - we had the studio which was ideal fora couple wanting just a bit more than a hotel room. The breakfast was handy and saved heading out when you feel like a bit of a sleep in. Chinese resturants handy too. We lovely walking all over the city from here. There is a courtesy bus you can get to and from airport as well. Over all pretty good.

Location: good, in the CBD, at Chinatown's doorstep
Check-in: good, smiling and helpful clerk
Parking: available for a reasonable price, booking in advance is compulsory (we did it by mail, worked fine)
Room: cute kitchenette, good enough bedding except for the awful pillows (concrete style), very standard overall
Bathroom: we hated it, everything is small or ugly, you have either hot or cold water at the wash basin (no mixing possible), but well, we did get perfectly clean......
It misses a washer/dryer
We knew it was inexpensive, so our hopes were not too high
Would I recommend it to very reasonable price seekers? Yes
Will I return? I may aim for a higher quality hotel next time

Room Tip: Our room was 504, very quiet

We were on the eighth floor overlooking the street, which although the motel is on the outskirts of China Town it was peaceful at night until the early morning garbage truck run, Saturday morning, it seemed to go on for hours, so an early start to the day (the next morning was much more serene). Considering the position of the motel it was reasonably priced, the light breakfast satisfying (if a little short on the condiment selection and portions) . Did not think the room was as clean as it could have been, not quite "squeaky" clean.
Slept quite well, excluding the garbage truck, would consider staying here next time when in Melbourne. Having the facilities to have a light meal/snack in room is handy.
