We had some troubles to find a car park (the price are incredibly expensive all around the city). The hotel offers a car park for 35 AUD per day. The staff was young and super - friendly. The rooms are OK, even if I found the bed too soft. The problem is the bathroom: even if the shower is OK...

I am very grateful for the staff for enabling me to check in so late as my original travel plans changed. They certainly gave a stranded treavller a "good samaritan" experience. It was also a far more convenient location for my appointments the next day.

Very clean, great location near public transport, perfect for a budget stay in the city. I stayed 2 night with friends, we fit comfortably in the triple room. We didn't eat there but the cafe downstairs looked great. Will try it out on my next visit!

My stay at pensione hotel was excellent. It has been the second time and the experience has just got better. I like pensione hotel because of its excellent room quality and good price deals on the internet. It is close to southern cross station, South bank and cbd which is perfect for location.

Another great stay, hotel is central to everything, staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms, though on the small side, have everything that is required and are very clean. Will definitely be back again.

Nice hotel in great location. Rooms are small but adequate, bathroom is tiny and sink is positioned almost over toilet which is very strange. Perfect for 1 or 2 nights but not very comfortable for longer

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.
