As part of a mystery flight deal I had the standard room. Basic as the name would suggest, but appealing and very comfortable with everything I needed, and besides, who wants to hang out in their room when the location is so good? Walking distance to Chinatown and the Greek Precinct, more restaurants and bars than you could try in a month and a minute away from the free City Circle tram line you can use to check out museums, shopping, the Casino etc etc. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the rooms are amazingly quiet day and night. Can definitely recommend it and will be coming back again soon!

My daughters and I spent a week at Crossley Hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was of a decent size and bathroom was very clean. The free wifi was a big plus. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

We stayed only one night at the Crossley on a recent weekend in Melbourne. The location was very handy being near Chinatown and the shops there. Staff were helpful at all times of night. We did not try the restaurant, but instead ate out at the establishments nearby, of which there are a good variety.

The biggest let-down for us was the tired decor, especially in the bathroom. While everything worked, we couldn't help the feeling that we'd stepped 20 years into the past. Another issue was the wireless internet system. While one of our devices was able to connect fine, the other two had issues and were basically unusable.

We had a corner room on the top floor.

If you get a good deal on one of the travel sites, and like a hotel that's not directly in the centre of everything where you can get a decent night's sleep, then the Crossley may suit you.

While the hotel is fairly basic, it is in a great location next to Chinatown and only 20 mins walk from the CBD. We did not take breakfast or dine at the restaurant connected to the hotel, but chose to have breakfast in the city. There are lots of dining and drinking options nearby.

This has to be one of Melbourne's best kept secrets! Lovely accommodation in a superb position, central to the Theatre area, right at the beginning of China Town, and incredibly quiet at night!! The staff are lovely, nothing too much trouble. Definitely worth a return visit.

My husband and I enjoyed a two night stay in at the Crossley Hotel. It is so convenient to all the theatres, restaurants and gardens and a short walk down thru Chinatown to all the city shops. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very pleasant with a handy kitchen area.
Looking forward to our next break in at the Crossley.
