West Hobart
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great, friendly, clean well located 3.5 star hotel close to trams, trains and CBD atttactions . So pleasing to stay in a venue where the good online reviews are borne out by the stay. Also, was pleasant for a Change to stay in a venue in which the staff clearly enjoyed their various roles including helping guests.

Great location, clean with a bit of a European feel. Rooms are very small but fine for a base. Perfect central location - across from Southern Cross Station and one block from the Southbank. Super quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the cafe downstairs is great value and has great service. Plus they're pet friendly!

Great location, very friendly staff and nice room. We had a ground floor room with courtyard. It's not huge but enough space for everything. Big bathroom and you can sit outside in the private courtyard. An issue at reservation was dealt with quickly, friendly and super professional. Definitely will be back.

My granddaughter and I stayed in this hotel for a weekend in Melbourne. Although the room was small, it was clean and very comfortable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The location is ideal, being just down the road from the Skybus Terminal and the free City Circle tram stop is just around the corner in Flinders St. I...

Great location, friendly staff and nice accomodations of the Pensione Hotel Melbourne. The cafe / bar in the lobby has delicious options for breakfast. The room is a little bit tight, as informed by the description, nevertheless, it was clean and comfortable for me and my husband.

The lift takes sooo long. My card to get into my room had to be fixed 4 times. The bed was lumpy. The floor hadnt been vacuumed properly as it had boby pins all over it and the shower was small and dirty.

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.
