Perfect location, value for $ is also very good especially in Melbourne CBD. Rooms were average, older decor, small balcony water pressure also not the greatest.However perfect for couples/friends getaway/ business or shopaholics!

Great location, convenient to food and work. Loved the kitchen facilities and security of the location. Staff were very helpful on check in and check out, and it was a plus that I was able to store my luggage during the morning while I attended business meetings.

Great value for money, huge room and very modernly decorated. Only a bit cumbersome going up to the 6th floor to reception then go down to ground level to then take a different lift, but value is good.

Booked this hotel specifically for a double bed and 2 singles beds so myself and two other friends could each have a bed. Given a room with 2 double beds so one had to sleep on the couch, late arrival meant we could not do anything about it that night. Next day talk to the staff and and rather than... More

The rooms were clean and all staff were polite and professional. Not only did they help me in an efficient way, but I witnessed them assisting other guests in a professional manner. The location is ideal with public transport, restaurants and entertainment options close by.

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.
