Always stay here when in Melbourne because of the level of comfort. Staff are always friendly and helpful. A great location - just off Lygon street so lots of choices for eating out. Easy to get to by tram from the city.

We stayed here prior to heading to the Spirit of Tasmania. This allowed a pleasant nights stay and a very easy travel to the Port the following morning. The atmosphere was good and easy secure parking. Close to many amenities, eats etc nearby. Overall a nice place to stay

Excellent location for Lygon Street with its Italian restaurants, wine bars and general night life. The hotel is 20 minutes walk to the CBD of Melbourne. Spent the daytime in the city and relaxed at night in Carlton where the pace is a bit slower. Nice quiet hotel at night with free parking and pleasant staff.

We found the checkin great-as moteliers ourselves we were impressed. Easy to park underneath them just walk 1 block to all the action. The rooms are good-have been updated so nice bathrooms and everything you need. Not large rooms but no big deal. I'll bring the kids and come for swim next time!

Plus side. Nice large fluffy towels. Modern bathroom fittings, hot water. Clean room and comfortable bed. Plenty of pillows. Minus side. No obvious access/egress for someone of limited mobility. Steps up to main entrance otherwise you have to use lift to enter and exit via basement car park. Really need to have a ramp. Windows in room were very dirty...

A one night stay to see Kinky Boots and we were not disappointed in either the show or the hotel. Great location - very short walk to central Lygon St for eats and atmosphere, walk or short tram or bus ride to the city. Parking and breakfast included. It can be difficult to get good quality and good value accommodation...

This is in a great location, normally stay in the CBD but couldn't this trip....location is great & a quick walk & tram ride from the city.....only a block from Lygon St which has some of Melbourne's best restaurants. The staff were very friendly & helpful & the room very neat & tidy & the pool was great.

Nice quiet spot in the city yet close enough to transport and all highlights. Lovely accommodating staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fresh with a wide variety. Would only stay Best Western! Will be back again, thanks.

Neighborhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
