Clean & comfortable are the operative words here......Don't expect 5 stars and you'll be satisfied. Perfect location for a Lygon St. stay. We enjoyed our brekkie & the bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch!. Candice at the front desk was very polite & helpful. Would I stay here again?? absolutely!

The hotel room was clean, quiet and was in good condition. I had an appointment at Royal Melbourne Hospital which was about 10 minutes walk away. There were a number of restaurants in the area and a Coles and a Woolworths not too far away.

I have visited this hotel many times over the past decade. The location is fabulous for access to the museum and to all the excellent restaurants, book shops, movie houses and fashion stores of the area. Access to the city is easy also, a simple tram ride away. But... the rooms are just so so, quite dated and the bed...

Recently stayed at this Hotel and it was great! From the moment I called to make the booking, to checking in and leaving, there was no issue at all! On site parking, cheap breakfast in the dining room was fantastic and well worth the $10 per head! Room was clean, beds very comfortable, quiet location and just around the corner...

Overall a nice and clean hotel. Few downsides which were very irritating. The carpark is so crammed and a struggle to get in and out of. The toilet bowl in our room was set very close to the wall on one side and the shower screen on the other. Tough luck for an average to big sized person trying to...

Best Western Travel Inn is a great place to stay. It's only a short walk into the city centre, and it's only 1 block from all the great restaurants in Lygon Street. It's quiet and comfortable and the staff are friendly. We stayed there for two weeks, and we'd be happy to stay there again.

Staying in Lygon Street

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.
