This is an older "motel" property in which the rooms have been stylishly updated and well equipped. The room heaters work well, and bed linen and towels are very good quality. Every staff member I met was exceptionally helpful and responsive. The breakfast buffet was excellent and good value. There is a little road noise, but not excessive. The hotel... More

We had a very good rate and stayed here because of the proximity to an event we were attending. I asked for a quiet room, because my husband is a light sleeper, and our room was nearly at the back of the hotel. Rooms are dark if you don't open the venetians to main room, and then everyone that walks... More

The Downtowner was chosen to accommodate 10 sales reps and a 3 day sales conference. The rooms are modern, and quiet. The service and staff were excellent! The hotel offers WiFi but no cable channels. It is right on Lygon St and only steps away from bars and restaurants. The hotel offers on site parking and is a short drive... More

I have been staying at this hotel for fourteen years, but doubt now that I will be returning. While the hotel has won several awards for being "Green", in my view it is at the expense of guest comfort. Water saving devices in Hotels, installed under the pretense of being "Green", are actually doing it to save money, as is... More

Staff very helpful, knowledgable and friendly. Rooms clean and comfortable. I throughly enjoyed my nutrious hot breakfast in the restaurant, which was a great start to the day with the provided newspaper. Very handy access to Lygon st restaurant area and Melbourne university.

Staff went out of their way to be helpful, room was clean and spacious with provisions such as robes, iron, microwave, even a separate sink etc. It is in a really good location to walk to many attractions, Melbourne Central, or doing a course at Melbourne University as I was. Lygon Street is right there with all its buzz. Parking... More

The downtowner is in a great location to explore Melbourne with a family, buses 207 and 200 almost on the door step, trams within a blocks walk. Close to museum, old gaol, Melbourne baths, lygon Street eating and much more. Good value clean rooms, Street a bit noisy and one morning someone was using a vacuum cleaner in the hall... More
