2 years ago I stayed at the Pensione and this time I also checked out different hotels to stay at but in the end I decided that where the Pensione is situated was very convenient for me. After landing at the Melbourne airport, I then hopped on the Skybus and hopped off at the Southern Cross Hotel and walked down to the Hotel. No need for a Mini bus to get to your hotel if your able to walk. The hotel room was so quiet and away from the city noise. The room was a double and is small but being a solo traveller it suited me fine. I am glad my husband wasn't travelling with me as he would not have liked the bathroom. It is small but the bathroom sink is ridiculously small and also the shower had no curtain so a bit of a splash of water outside the shower. Apart from that which I could laugh at I had a great location to the train station, City circle free Tram or walked a few blocks to the Bourke Street Mall. The Casino and the river walk is 1.5 blocks away so I was very happy with the location and the room was comfortable & clean which is all I needed.
Yes, I would not hesitate to stay there again and that is quite possible in the next 12 months. The staff were polite and friendly at the desk.
