The only good thing about this city accommodation (this is not a hotel) is its central location (although kings st is known for its gentlemen clubs). Their staff is inexperience, the room was very very cold, the works on the building next door started all days at 8 am, there was no daily cleaning service and the owner of the... More

We booked this hotel online for a girls weekend, looked really nice, after out late flight we got to the hotel at 10 pm with '24 hour' reception and we waited half and hour before someone came to the desk and and said 'sorry was in the Kitchen' terrible first impression. Room was clean but tiny and smelt very musky.... More

This hotel is very handy to Southern Cross railway station. The more interesting parts of CBD Melbourne, however, are accessible either on foot or by trams that run along Bourke street which is a couple of blocks away. The bed was very comfortable and there were enough pillows. Toiletries were minimal for my stay of several nights. On checking-in I... More

I've stayed here on a previous stays also, the staff (who never seem to be around) are friendly and helpful when you need them though. The rooms are clean however the set up is a little awkward, the tv is kinda bunged fairly high up on a wall to the hard right of the bed above the closet (its on... More

Room was not very large but clean, we didnt get it cleaned while we stayed as the day we wanted it clean we got back to the room at 4:30 and it still hadn't been done. We had breakfast one of the days we stayed and the bread was mouldy and the bacon barely cooked. We tried to have a... More

It was a pleasant stay again, room very clean and bed comfortable. Staff very helpful and pleasant to deal with, breakfast is very basic but hits the spot. Easy access to trams and rail if needed. with trams in the city green zone free it makes it very easy to see the city

Room was clean and well appointed, not large, but good value for money. Good breakfast set us up for the day, only $6 each. Location is two blocks from Southern Cross railway & bus station including airport bus transfer point, a very easy walk. Half a block from the free tram. Room well appointed with excellent capsule coffee machine. Good... More

Stayed here for 1 night while we were transiting, and it was a very basic room, but we couldn't really complain. The location was convenient - directly across from Southern Cross Station (~5 min walk). We took the Skybus from the airport and by right could have walked over to the hotel but it was pouring so we took the... More

We booked this hotel because of its location closest to the southern cross terminal. We arrived at dawn and this hotel was just a walk away from the terminal. It seem to be the quieter part of town but there are plenty of eateries around and we walk everywhere from this location. Room was clean and we had free wifi.... 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.
