This hotel is just located within 3 minutes walk of Bourke Street Mall! You can do your shopping and unload your goodies back at the hotel and resume your shopping again! Isn't what wonderful??!! Another plus point if you are taking the free shuttle service from the airport Skybus - the shuttle will stop right outside the side of the hotel facing Little Collins Street - you just need to walk a few metres down the small lane (Equitable Place) to get to the hotel's entrance. Compared to Causeway Inn on the Mall - you need to walk through half of Bourke Street Mall to get to the entrance of Causeway Inn on the Mall. The same applies to many hotels located on the little collins, little bourke streets too - the shuttle cannot stop along those little streets.
Causeway 353 is still relatively brand new. The rooms are a little smallish but not claustrophobic. Bathroom is decent too. For the rate and location, i have nothing but praises for this hotel.
The staff at the reception were very helpful and accommodating. There were some initial hiccups when i checked-in. They had initially allocated me a room right next to the exercise room on the 2nd floor. When i requested a change of room to have more privacy, they obliged with a smile. They gave me another room on the 3rd floor. However, I discovered that the bulbs of the standing light and the workdesk lamp were missing. They couldn't get new bulbs immediately because the maintenance guys were gone for the day. Since I had to do some urgent work that night, they changed me to another room on the 7th floor. The reception ladies were very cheerful, obliging and good natured.
Breakfast was included in my rate. But if breakfast is not included in your rate, no worries! There are many cafes just besides the cafe along Equitable Place. The cafes open very early.
Will definitely stay at Causeway 353 again when I visit Melbourne.
