Causeway Inn On The Mall
Ranked #110 of 161 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed October 28, 2012

To perhaps add context to the previous comment from Anthony K, in the Cold War era, a lot of East Berlin apartments were actually constructed in separate blocks and then assembled on-site to form the finished building. I know exactly what he means. Tiny rooms, a pillow that compresses into nothingness when you rest your head on it, dreadful breakfast. But it's clean and convenient.

For people who don't mind a small room and not such a great view, but use the room as a place to sleep, it is great. The location was perfect, just across from the Myer centre and within walking distance to trams and flinders st station. The room was clean and serviced daily, and as Melbourne being quite cold, the staff were happy to supply a extra blanket. Free newspaper was included daily and staff were great in offering a later checkout at no cost as well as holding onto our bags while my partner and i ventured the city. The breakfast was really nice and this place is great value for money.

Rooms are not large but they are clean, quiet and have the basic necessities. However it is the location that is the real winner - a few steps from the hotel and you are in the Mall. We participated in the Melbourne Marathon so it was easy to get to the MCG early in the morning for the start. Staff were helpful in giving us a few minutes longer to check out.

I chose this hotel for its price and location. The Causeway Inn On the Mall is in an alley directly opposite Myer and David Jones, so it suited our needs for a shopping trip to Melbourne CBD. The basic twin share room was very, very small and the bathroom though clean was a little tired. The beds and pillows were fantastic, firm yet soft and downy.
I would recommend this hotel for short stays only.

I keep returning to this hotel, as it is consistently good, value for money and has a great location in the centre of Melbourne. (check my other reviews for more details)

Easy access from Spencer Street Station where the Sky Bus may drop you off. 30 min walk up Burke street mall (and walk down a small alley way) to get to the hotel, or use the free Sky Bus service when available for derop off and pick up.

Walking distance to most things in Melbourne CBD ie Federation Square, Museums, Victoria Markets, Crown Casino. As it is central you can jump on many trams to get to about anywhere in Melbourne, also next to a Melbourne city traveller information booth on Burke St Mall.

Rooms are cleaned daily, and the 'free' breakfast has a nice variety of options. Reception is 24 hours. They have a vending machine on level 1 and a business centre with 2 computers. Wifi is not free unfortunately (wish it was) Free daily paper upon request.

Hope this review is helpful.

We nicknamed this hotel the East German container cell. It was small, dingy and quite unpleasant to stay in. Breakfast was included, but I wouldn't eat there. The doom and gloom written all over the faces of the other detainees in the lunch room was enough to know that the streets of Melbourne have a much more enticing offering for food. Even if it does have to be paid for. Yes it is central, but so is a backpackers and I would have been more comfortable there, especially for the price! Punishment should not be a commodity!

I liked:
- the location
- the housekeeping service
- the included breakfast (a better range of eats and drinks than I'd expected from some other reviews)
- the in-room safe(convenient and easy to use)

I didn't mind:
- the smallness of the room (nominally Queen size) okay for me, but not if I was sharing it)

I wasn't so happy with:
- the charge for wi-fi, and its expiry after 30 hrs
- the failure to fix a faulty door closure (notified on 2nd day, still faulty on 6th)
- the touchy radio (but no worse than most other hotels in this range)

Room Tip: It has 8 floors - the higher up you are, the better. And ask for a room away from the lifts.
