Thursday 01/12/2016 - 1 night stay - Room 331 Groupon voucher used but incurred $50 surcharge. This part was disappointing because we noticed that this hotel for a Friday night was available for $167 per night which was well less what we ended up paying for the voucher plus surcharge. Please be mindful when using Groupon with this hotel. Check-in...

We are happy to return to the Downtowner on Lygon when we visit Melbourne. This was our third stay and we stayed five nights before travelling to Adelaide. We enjoy being within walking distance of the CBD without actually staying in the CBD., so we are able to easily visit the main shops, the Victoria Market, and the Museum as...

Great place to stay. Very clean, comfortable and close to the City but far enough away to escape the busy city life. Close to the Old Melbourne Gaol, a short walk to Queen Victoria Markets and the food on Lygon Street caters for everyone's tastes.

We were attending a weekend conference at Melbourne Uni and, given its proximity to Lygon St, opted to revisit the Downtowner. It's been through upgrades over the past 46 years but still retains some lovely retro touches - a bathroom quite large by modern standards, a carpark that is not one of those squeezy subterranean tunnels, quite a bit of...

We recently stayed one night here and were very satisfied with our stay. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful - letting us store our bags pre checkin and post checkin. It is in a perfect spot with many choices of places to eat on Lygon Street and near bottle shop too, if you fancy Greek, that area is...

Stayed for four nights in October 2016, for a stopover on the way to New Zealand. The location was brilliant, 10 minutes walk from central Melbourne. The hotel was clean and tidy and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, we arrived on an early morning flight and had emailed the hotel to ask if we could have an early...

When you are looking for a spotless hotel with friendly staff and parking, close to the city, parks AND the fabulous food of Lygon Street, stay at the Downtowner. Walk around the block to the Exhibition Centre and Museum in Carlton Gardens before feasting on the delights of Queen Victoria Markets or dinner in Lygon Street.
