We found the staff member (Emma) who took our booking helpful with advise on parking and changing reservations if we had to for pending family reasons. On our arrival we found Morgan at the front desk helpful with directions to the movies, assistance with making reservations and finding an eating venue near the movies. Shannon was excellent on our check... More

My room was very clean and spacious. Offers easy walking access to the city, major hospitals, Melbourne University and the Italian culture in Lygon Street. The hotel staff are helpful if you ask but basically keep to their budget reputation. I didn't expect more considering the tariff I paid. This is a good place to stay if you are looking... More

Exceptional value for money in a great location. Lesson to all. Book direct with the hotel - the rates are still the same as elsewhere and other deals - but you get free parking included. This is not the case when you book online no matter what it says - and the staff are unable to change the situation once... More

This hotel is in a terrific location and has very good amenities. Lygon Street, with all of its restaurants and late night venues is just around the corner and Melbourne's CBD is a few minutes away by tram. My wife and I stayed for one night and were very pleased with the quality and cleanliness of the room. There is... More

The hotel is located in an ideal location, 10 mins from CBD on tram, short walk to bus and tram stops, Melbourne University and lots of restaurants and coffee shops (Brunetti is close by) in Lygon St and nearby. Woolworths (open until late) is also a short walk away. It has a pool but I was there in winter.

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.
