“CAUSEWAY 353 HOTEL”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We stayed in this terrible hotel for 1 nite only as we just couldn't handle it any more.The room was so small that there was no place to walk around as it had a giant sized bed.The bathroom although clean was very small and uncomfortable.The restaurant was very ordinary with equally ordinary food.The best part of our stay there was when we were checking out,Horrible experience,I would definitely NOT recommend it.

Room Tip: Don't stay at this hotel!

this hotel is in the heart of Melbourne but located in a dark alley with very poor lighting. the price is extremely expensive for the quality delivered. the rooms are poorly decorated, almost dirty. the internet does not work. the staff takes little interest in customers queries; and it takes to speak to the management to get answer. it's always the classic ''we'll call you back'' and in fact they never do. frankly, if you have the choice, go somewhere else.

Had a great time in Central Melbourne because we stayed at the Causeway..It is situated so close to the trams,rail and the $5bus that allows passengers to hop off at specific sightseeing or shopping destinations then get back on..We walked to the great shopping outlets at Burke st,Melbourne Central and Chinatown..
the rooms were basic but spacious enough for two of us,had very good shower/bathrooms which were thoroughly cleaned each day..We used the gym and steam room regularly and found that these facilities were very clean as was the breakfast restaurant area..We enjoyed the continental breakfast options which were adequate to start the day on..The hotel is so close to other eating houses and cafés if you chose a bit of variety.
Would highly recommend this Causeway hotel 353 for a short Melbourne visit.

We stayed in a king room and it was simple, clean and in a great quiet lane way right in the middle of the city. Reasonably priced with a simple continental breakfast and cheap parking nearby it met our expectations. It was nice to get up and walk around the city straight from our door.

I Stayed at this hotel last Sunday and Monday night. It was not what I expected, the room was dark as it was facing a wall, on the second night I found that the mattress had no cover on it , and when checking the pillows they also had no covers. it Took all day and three request to get mattress covers put on both single beds. On checking the other single bed, we could see it had a mattress cover, it was dirty and stained. Also I think it was expensive. It was quiet however. Staff were pleasant. This was booked by a travel agent here in NZ. I had booked another room for my daughter and they did not put us on the same floor which was not very good.

We have always stayed here on out trips to Melbourne because of its excellent location and value for money. It was still that on this visit (though prices have inched up).
But! We were disappointed this time but two bad experiences.
Firstly, neatly folded on the towel rack was a disgusting, filthy (brown stains) used towel.
Secondly, their strict policy on check out time was truely laughable. On the morning of our departure I went out to pick up a few items at the shops and arrived back at the hotel at 10:15. My husband was waiting in the room for me, but I couldn't use the lift to return to the room because my access card had been inactivated! I was indignantly and rudely told this was their policy. I used this opportunity to complain about the filthy towel. I was told the message would be passed on, but no apology was offered.
We will probably stay here again because of previous positive experiences, but management please note: best not allow staff to spoil your reputation.

Stayed here two nights. Excellent location down a lane way off Lttle Collins Street. We had a king size bedroom - everything was clean and tidy and it was very quiet. The staff were very helpful, especially with the computer. The continental breakfast had a good range of food, but if you fancied something different there were a lot of cafes in the lane way outside the hotel. The shuttle bus could be caught by prior arrangement from Little Collins Street to the airport. All round it was very good value.
