I spent a week here while attending a conference at the Melbourne Convention Center. It was comfortable, quiet, and a short walk to the Convention Center. Breakfast was basic but decent. I would return.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways

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

Buy a bus card. Buses or trains for AUD 4.2 each time and daily maximum is $ 8.4. Buses or trains in city are free. And about food, don't forget to try the coffee, deserts, and classic Aussie steak.

16 minutes' driving or 35-40minutes' catching buses. The hotel is near the southern cross station and you can take the buses or subway there.
