We spend only one night here, however we really enjoyed it. The hotel is very central. The service is really good and the staff is really helpful. We arrived early in the morning and our room was not ready. Amy tried her best to help us with an early check in, it didn't work in the end but she clearly... More

The rooms are well appointed with all the normal items; TV, internet, mini bar, ensuite (great shower), comfortable bed etc. The rooms are also well built and solid,... More

Great hotel for a quick weekend getaway, our two bedroom apartment was compact but ideal for our family. Staff were very friendly, helpful going above and beyond with any request. The apartment was clean with everything you need. The location was ideal with a two minute walk to the tram. The hotel lives up to the charm of boutique hotel... More

Stayed in the 1 bedroom spa room that overlooks Bourke Street. Great sized room. Comfortable bedding. So many little extra delights in the room, like a bathroom scale even. Very sound proof room. Slight bit of noise from the Royal Melbourne Hotel across the road. But room was extremely clean and very comfortable. TV in bedroom also and both had... More

This hotel has heritage charm and is in a great location for a quick trip to Melbourne. We appreciated the 2 min walk from the Southern Cross Station via the Skybus from Tullamarine Airport; so civilized. Then a quick tram ride to the centre of CBD. Helpful staff and super clean room with all the amenities. The lovely lounge downstairs... More

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.
