The adults and three children all enjoyed lunch, the...

I've stayed at the RACV a few times now and each has been a good experience. The location is convenient and with a tram stop right outside it is a very easy base from which to explore Melbourne. It is a good solid hotel with large rooms and good amenities. The decor could do with a refresh but it is...

Being a family of 5 we find the Family rooms (interconnecting) perfect and great value, they are also very spacious. The breakfast is excellent as well as the dining room. The gym is very well equipped and the pool is excellent for lap swimmers. Most of all the position is AAA. Walk everywhere for great shopping and dining.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
