It's as basic and plain as you can find...rather like a 70's motel, which is probably how it began life. Good location in Lygon Street and there's a carpark (arrive early for that). The beds are comfortable enough and it has everything you will likely need. Not the sort of place you would enjoy sitting around in, i.e. ambience is... More

This hotel is basic but clean, comfortable, and with efficient service and a brilliant location. Really, if you want to stay centrally, particularly if Lygon Street is your go, then do not have any reservations about making a reservation :-) Car park may get full at times, there is no bar, and this is more like a motel in many...

Overall: the location is great, a short walk into the city and restaurants everywhere. Weren't always able to secure a park, but as we stayed over the weekend, there was free parking close by. The hotel was a cheap price so I wasn't expecting anything over the top, but I do appreciate the basics, of which the venue did not... More

Great location to wonderful food, close to vic markets, close to trams. Perfect location to view the city area and catch free tourist tram. All trams in city area are free. The famous Lygon street is well known for its itilian restaurants and believe me they are fantastic and extremely well worth a visit.

Great place to stay in the hub, so close to the cbd and right in the center of Lygon St. The place was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. For the price it was excellent. The room was simply decorated with all essentials and the bathroom was modern. If you want somewhere quiet and the whole hotel... More

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighborhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
