This hotel is right in the center of the city. It is accessible by tram and within walking distance to everything to see in Melbourne's City Center. It is clean, modern and comfortable. My weekend rate was $350 for two nights including the tax on a pre-pay. You do need to be careful of the extra's for internet ($10/day, not a problem though if you public wi-fi from a coffee shop), and breakfast ($16/day for the buffett, but not a problem if you like to have breakfast out). This is a particularily a great find if you like shopping in the small shops. I would stay here again.
