There was absolutely nothing wrong with these apartments and would definitely stay again, location is excellent, and the rooms are clean and large. Would be great is you could connect more than one device to the wifi and if they had Foxtel..

This end of Little Bourke has really come into its own. If you want an authentic Melbourne experience, check it out. The hotel is very good for the price, offering a large room, including a little kitchen. The bed is comfy enough, although the TV is a little small. The amenities are more Motor Inn than boutique hotel, but do... More

My mother and I stayed here recently on an overnight trip to Melbourne. We were in town to see Matilda the Musical, the City Limits was the perfect place to stay. It was literally just around the corner from the Princess Theatre (we could see it out of our window) and only a 5 minute walk from Parliament Train Station.... More

City limits is the accommodation hidden gem of Melbourne. Fantastic value for money. Room was spotless and the bed was excellent. 5 meters away from Mrs Parmas restaurant, 2 minute walk to Princess Theatre makes it and ideal place to stay if you having a night at the theatre. Highly recommend!

We stayed for 5 nights and had a great stay there. The hotel was quiet, near to Chinatown and easily accessible to trams and subway station. The only drawback was the tiny communal laundry room at 2nd floor, outside the escape staircase. Looks creepy to me, but I've used it 3 times during my stay there.:)

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
