It was clean, in a great location - the only thing is that the rooms are small an there was no desk or place to work comfortably., however if you are lucky enough... More

Some pet friendly rooms are bigger than others. Check out was slow. Sometimes you're charged extra fees, sometimes not. Being the only pet friendly hotel in the city it's useful but not the highest quality.

The location of the hotel is perfect, the room was very small but cozy and very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Upon the check in I was given a map of the city at the reception, the location of the landmarks and the way how to get there were explained to me.

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.
