Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.

My young children and I had a brilliant stay at The Crossley in Little Bourke St. It was only a few minutes walk to the Princess Theatre and Chinatown right at our doorstep. The reception staff were excellent, helping us with parking and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Yip - Skybus will go to Southern Cross station and then the little one (Skybus shuttle) will drop you at stop 8 near the hotel (Lonsdale/Exhibition - short walk). The shuttle is included in the ticket price (or free depending on your perspective). The alternative is to take the tram (86 or 96) up Bourke St to the stop before Spring and go through the alley (Liverpool St) to the hotel.
