We stayed in room 315 2 bedroom superior apartment. I have stayed in studio apartments about the same size. Bedrooms and bathroom were on the small size. The living room and lounge room had nice updated furniture and a good size for a family. The toilet door latch was broken and when you are staying in an apartment with your...

Excellent location for a CBD show in a spacious comfortable studio apartment. Cheerful and friendly reception. Only downside was being unable to get the aircon heating to work (which of course is not unusual in many hotels). Some simplified instructions on how to work the darn thing would be a good idea.

I booked a superior one-bedroom apartment for five nights. It was quiet, clean and had everything I wanted (except an oven tray). The bed was comfortable. I felt safe. The reception staff were helpful. I didn't expect housekeeping, but got clean towels each day (and a rearranged rather than made bed). This was half the price of the conference venue....

In terms of location its awesome, close to everything, but if you are a light sleeper then a good night sleep here may be hard to get with you being able to hear pretty much most noises outside, even in hallways it seemed to echo for us

It was VERY difficult to find the place due to the hotel being in a building occupied by other businesses and poor signage. But very clean, friendly and close to everything we wanted to do in Melbourne

As you know we have stayed here on and off for the last few years, including as recently as November 2016. This room allocated to us was probably in the most poorest of condition of rooms we have stayed in. We know you are in the process of upgrading the rooms, but I would have thought that with my conversation...

Hi, Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately as Adrian is no longer working here, we are uncertain what was discussed between you both. as an FYI only about 20% of our rooms face Manchester Lane, and of the unrefurbished rooms there are only a handful. Consequently, and as a general rule, we never promise rooms to anyone, we can merely request...

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.

The reverse cycle air-conditioning keeps you comfortable no matter what the Melbourne weather is dishing out. BreakFree on Collins features One or Two Bedroom Apartments that are modern, stylish and comfortable.

Go all hip in the intriguing little lanes that Melbourne is famous for or catch a bit of culture at the many art centres and museums. Of course there's sport, the Rod Laver Arena hosts the Australian Open, the AFL Grand Final is held at the MCG or you can catch one of many exciting games at Docklands Stadium. You won't want to miss the Melbourne Cup and the rest of the Spring Racing Carnival or perhaps you just want to head on over to Fitzroy and Acland Streets St Kilda to get amongst the funky and colourful mix of restaurants, people and places of interest.
