I will stay 2.5 days in Melbourne. My plan is to visit rainbow houses at Brighton. Other two full days joining local tours and then earlier morning flight back home. In view of my schedule, I need to live close to transportation that I can catch my flight in earlier morning, and with small cafe/bakeries that I can buy breakfast as I leave early for day tours. I therefore look for accommodation at the CBD. The following hotels seem to be within my budget:
Great Southern Hotel Melbourne
I welcome comments/suggestions for other the above/other hotels in the district. I have not much knowledge but would also like to find a "boutique" hotels that are less chain-hotel liked. Thanks in advance!
