very enjoyable stay - super comfortable bed despite the fact that the room was a shoebox size, great location and unique interior design, that the same creates a relaxing atmosphere, no hesitation to recommend for any type of traveler.

We were allowed in earlier than expected which was great. Lovely reception girl very helpful. Got into our room and thought this is nice and cosy, then walked around and saw the bathroom. Well let me tell you. If you have ever been on a cruise, think about the bathroom, well this was nearly half the size and not as... More

Dear Zainecoop54, We are sorry that your bathrooms size had overshadowed your experience with us. We understand that one size does not fit all and that our older style building does have cosy bathrooms. Thank you for mentioning the hotels cleanliness and friendly reception staff.

We wanted somewhere close to Souther Cross station,and really only required a place to sleep.We had a twin room,and although it was "cosy" it had everything we required,comfy beds,ensuite(although pour shower pressure)tea and coffee making and aircon.The friendlest staff I've ever encountered. Great cafe and very good value continental breakfast ($12)

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.
