Hotel good enough for people looking for a quick staying in Melbourne for a reasonable cost-benefit. Good location, easy access to the tram stops and very near several Italian restaurants. The room I stayed was apparently freshly painted and was very smelly.

I booked my accommodation through a third party. Two days before my arrival, I rang the reception to confirm if my reservation is successful. A guy answered the phone and told me that the system is down and that he couldn't check it. He gave me an assurance that he will ring me when the system is back. I waited... More

Stayed here whilst a family member had a procedure at the hospital down the road. To be honest it was average at best... Parking was easy and $20 per night so that was ok. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lift smelt like an old mechanics workshop and by the sound of it could have used a service, so I then... More

The location is great as it's only a block away from Lygon Street and many things to do. The room itself was somewhat quirky in that the bathroom sink was the size of a shoe box in the corner and the whole bathroom wasn't much bigger. Nonetheless the front desk staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean,... More

The hotel is neat, clean & tidy. Location is fantastic being only 2 minute stroll to Lygon Street Restaurants & 5 minute walk to Melbourne Museum & Carlton Gardens & Exhibition Building. Onsite restaurant serving breakfast & dinner (Sun-Thu only). Wonderful staff - friendly, helpful & genuine. Rooms are clean & comfortable.

the basin in the bathroom leaves a lot to be desired.I always seem to get more water on the floor than my face when TRYING to shave!!! Also the water supply is sometimes hot sometimes cold, it is always a challenge to regulate the water temp whilst showering.

First and foremost, this is a budget motel in an excellent location, and the pool in the central courtyard is both attractive and provides pleasant white noise (which is a bonus in the city). Also, staff seemed very polite and friendly. Having said that, OH DEAR. Lift wasn't operational and nobody to help schlep luggage up stairs. We managed, but... More

The place was clean. The amenities were modern. The staff were helpful, friendly and polite. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Its proximity to the city is great and that fact that you have parking is one of the main reasons for booking. Overall, a pleasant stay

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.
