I'm more or less going to say what everyone else said... don't go there. The place had sheets for one bed (not the other) and pillows for the other. No staff to speak of, to get what was to be suppied for the two people staying. We were meant to stay two night but it was so bad we left... More

Rooms are small but clean. Nothing special but it does the job. A plus is that the rooms have a kitchenette for you to cook your own meals.

I guess this really is a case of you get what you pay for! Tiny rooms - not much bigger than the bed in it, limited staff access, extra payments, parking down the street. Rooms were clean but cramped. I would hate to stay here if you had the maximum permissible people.

This place was by far the best price I could get to sleep a family of 4 in central Melbourne. $179 p/n for 3 nights for 4 people. Good location, about a block and a half to Swanston St. I understand that this was formally Mayflower On Lonsdale. No reception desk, instead you are met by someone who shows you... More

Was taken aback by being asked to pay for room in cash. However, my refusal and credit card were accepted. I had booked a 2 B/R apartment. Bedrooms extremely tiny and had no windows. It felt like you were sleeping in a cupboard. Not enough room to move bed from wall, hence sheet all tucked in one side of the... More

We stayed at Mayflower in January and were absolutley shocked at the absolute poor quality of this hotel. Firstly we were put into a tail spin when the lady at the front desk wanted me to pay CASH up front for our 3 night stay. I asked to use my card and was told the machine was broken. I said... More

If you get nothing else from this review then follow this advice - the moment you check in ask for extra blankets for all beds. Melbourne winter is COLD and a thin synthetic blanket and sheet are NOT enough. We stayed here with our two kids for one night. It was not expensive but it wasn't a great bargain either.... More

I have stayed at the Mayflower on two occasions and have found it to be fine. I am unsure of what others expect for the price and the star rating. A lot of the gripes that people seem to have (such as no phone and no parking) are advertised on the website. As for the smell of Asian food. I... More

Our 2-bedroom apartment was tiny, the main bedroom was just big enough for the bed, no side tables and no curtains to block the morning light! There was a group of Chinese students living in the apartment next to ours so our room constantly smelt of their cooking (unpleasant odours). At least we had a balcony with decent views and... More

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.
