At this price range I don't expect luxury, and the room seemed to have all the necessary conveniences. But the stained carpet and broken cupboard door were a turnoff. The location is very convenient if travelling by public transport.

Perfect location, except when we arrived there was roadwork, making the place quite polluted and noisy on road. Otherwise extremely helpful cleaning staff! They did great service with the room cleaning.

beautifully decorated but had to pay for the wifi, that my teenage daughter was not happy about, we went to Melbourne for a shopping spree and found it easy to get around as we were right near the major tram stops and just a few doors down from the Lindt café.

Great location and pricing. Rooms a bit old and in disrepair ,but for the price not bad. Service good and staff excellent nothing was too much problem! Beds fair but pillows terrible. Would recommend this hotel for the location alone.

As usual we were very happy with our stay at 'Breakfree on Collins'. It is located centrally in the City so is handy to be able to walk everywhere also to go out at night. We always keep coming back here as it suits our needs very well

Good Morning Morris, It's great to see return guests posting review, thanks for this. The location is definitely a blessing and we are always working hard on the presentation and upkeep of the rooms. Our next project will be the reception and corridor refurbishment. Exciting times! Hope to see you again soon.

Not equipped with proper kitchen utensils which made tasks like cutting fruit for our young family very difficult. Rooms were very noisy with general apartment use. The service of the rooms was good and done every day

Good Evening Christie, Thanks for the review. Disappointing to hear the par levels of cooking utensils were below expectation. We do have stock on hand for these unforeseen shortages and I am hoping a simple call to reception allowed us the opportunity to bring you the required items. We do hope to have you back and I'm sure we'll impress...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
