“Very friendly place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Just a one night stay with my family. Room was renovated with a kitchenette but we did not use it due to the number of good restaurants in the area. Very clean and tidy, new carpet and furniture and newly renovated bathroom. Parking was a bit tight but it was secure. The only down side was the noise from busy Lygon street as our room was at the front of the building and it could do with a bigger tv. On the upside, the balcony was good and the place was really clean and tidy. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Will be staying again, next time for a longer stay.

The staff were welcoming and friendly on arrival. The rates for the room was excellent (given where this place is located). The room was clean and tidy and we made up each day with clean towels and linen etc. I will certainly be staying there when next in Melbourne...

Lygon Lodge is situated in the heart of italian district of Melbourne.Very good location - just 20 minutes on foot to the main places of interest - Federation Square, the market, Chinatown, Carlton gardens. Lots of cafes and restaurants around. Things I didn't like at all - awful view from the hotel's rooms (dirty backyard), no breakfast, the entrance to the lift to the rooms is from unguarded parking. The hotel is overpriced like mostly everything in Australia:)

Just had a great stay here, right in the heart of Lygon St and only two blocks from the tram. Beds were a little uncomfortable, but that might be just me. Staff were very friendly, room was clean an tidy though front of house could do with a lick of paint. A great alternative to right in the CBD and a fair bit cheaper too.

This place is overpriced. The good thing is the location, it´s right in the middle of Lygon St.
However rooms are very basic and you´re much better off staying at one of the other places in the area for not much more. Downtowner on Lygon was a better choice.

Looks like they are at the end of refurbsihments with a few minor things to complete in reception and hallways. Room was of good quality and clean as well. Looked like a new bathroom. Only paid $120 but quality of room was better than that.

Room Tip: Ensure you have a new room

I booked here after looking at the website. When I arrived it didnt look anything like the site photos and the front desk staff were very unhelpful. The whole place was a building site. Like the others have said on here there were wires hanging from walls, peeling paint on the walls, it smelt and the furniture, walls and carpet were all old and dirty. I asked if they had another room as this wasnt a 3.5 star that they advertsied. The owner used more swear words than I care to report and ultimately said said he would bash me if I complained. I checked out and went to the Quest 500 meters up the road for $20 a night more. Dont stay here unless your on a very tight budget and can only afford $50 per night.
