This place is reasonably well located to flinders st station. The tram stops not far from the hotel so that's an added plus. Rooms are adequate with 2 TVs. 1 in bedroom and 1 in lounge. I stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with views overlooking the river. My only real criticism is the place is cold. Even after turning... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment for 4 nights on the 7th Floor. We had some train and tram noise from about 6am until 11pm but the triple glazing cut that to a minimum. The rooms were were spacious, comfortable, well equipped and serviced daily. All the staff, from reception through to the staff who serviced the rooms were very... More

overall hotel is good. It has specious rooms with all amenities well fixed and planned. The only thing is the swimming pool as it is not for adults. 1 meter depth can annoy the people who loves swimming.

We stayed over night on friday to attend the footy. Location is close to CBD, nice walking distance to Crown Casino. Warm, Friendly, Helpful Staff. Beautiful views over the Yarra. We had a room facing Flinders street & it was surprisingly quiet, no road, tram or train noise. Definitely be returning! 🖒

We spent two nights here for our anniversary and were greeted by a very friendly staff member, very helpful and happy. She advised that we could check in early which was great. The room was well appointed with separate bedroom, full sized kitchen and bathroom. There wasn't a lot of selection on the tv however they provided a DVD player... More

We recently (August) stayed in Clarion Suites on a visit to Melbourne, for 4 nights. On the first night the air conditioner did not work properly. The maintenance person attended quickly and left us with a portable heater until he could sort out the problem. It appeared that could not be done and we were moved to a very nice... More

This is a great hotel, I stay here every time I go to Melbourne. Always clean rooms, quiet and comfortable. Conveniently located, always great service by staff. Carpark is secure and very convenient. My reason for making this review today is to express my disappointment in the choice of music being played in the restaurant during breakfast. Sure it was... More

Very helpful and friendly staff. Quiet, nicely appointed and clean. The studio suite included a compact kitchen with an oven and washing machine. Bedroom is separate from the lounge, which is great for a bit more peace and quiet. Shower entry was a bit cramped, but overall very nice.

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.
