Hands down the best thing about Hotel Causeway is the location - close to Bourke Street Mall and Flinders Street but tucked away enough to avoid most of the noise and congestion. It's also close to a variety of useful tram stops for visitors and easy to get to and from the airport via Skybus from Southern Cross Station. The...

Staff very welcoming. Great location for city exploring. Room was comfortable but felt for the tariff we paid it was a little tired and could do with a spruce up ! Mini bar well stocked and priced. Good to be able to leave our luggage for a few hours after check out.

Pros: - the place is literally in the middle of the action, in the city centre - comfy beds Cons: - the rooms are really tiny (not recommended if you're claustrophobic) and pretty run down - the whole place could use a renovation; it's a shame because it has got a lot of potential, but it really doesn't live to...

The first impression off the room was that it was a little tired. The cleaners seemed to improve that every day we were there. The continental breakfast was pleasant and the breakfast room comfortable. The Staff were friendly and helpful.

Lovely little hotel right in the heart of Melbourne shopping district. Large room, full mini bar selection, tea, coffee etc. my booking came with breakfast - continental selection of fresh fruit, pastries etc. Paid parking nearby ($25 a day from memory) - about 300m from hotel. Good little coffee shops right outside of hotel.

The Causeway is one of three properties with similar names in the Melbourne CBD - easy to confuse them (as one woman did while we were checking in) but they aren't too far apart. The rooms are a reasonable size and quiet at night. Comfortable beds, good bathrooms and clean. The staff are friendly and welcoming. We didn't eat breakfast...

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.
