“Friendly and great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2007

Good place to stay at this price. Although it was slightly out of the city, it was worth the extra walking. Very friendly and helpful staff and welcoming atmosphere. Room was small but facilities were very good. I'd spent the previous night in a hostel in the cbd which was more expensive and awful so I was really relieved to arrive at the Miami and enjoyed my stay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2006

We stayed at the Miami Hotel Melbourne for a week in December 2006 when my husband had meetings in Melbourne. The personal service from all the staff at this family-owned hotel was excellent. The rooms were a little small compared to an American hotel, but that is typical abroad. Our room had a spacious bathroom and walk-in closet, TV, coffee and tea kettle and fridge. Laundy was available, as was internet in the lobby.

It is a little removed from the center of town, which makes it quieter at night. It is an easy trip via the city's tram or about a 20 minute walk to downtown.

What really stood out was the personal service provided by all the staff. It made it a great visit. Especially helpful was one who went over the Great Ocean Road route with us and pointed out things to see.

I stayed at this hotel for 14 days a couple of years ago. It is VERY basic and quite a distance out of town, there are trams from the top of the road and a walk into town takes you past the Victoria Market where you can but almost anything!
You are supplied a kettle and have access to a fridge and tv in a communal room but I never found any cooking facilities. The restaurant was basic but did nice food and it was possible to book trips through reception, I went on the penguin parade which was a bit of a scam and I also went on the Great Ocean road tour which is incredible and highly recommended.
Showers and toilets are communal so not everyones cup of tea but still good value for money

Miami_Team, Manager at Miami Hotel Melbourne, responded to this review, January 22, 2007
The Miami Hotel is located one kilometre north of Melbourne's CBD, and the tram downtown takes only a few minutes to get there. The hotel has undergone some refurbishment over the past 2 years and has been rewarded by winning the 2005 & 2006 Victorian Tourism Awards for Best Standard Accommodation.

Accommodation is available in two styles, 3-star rated Standard and Superior hotel rooms with ensuite, or Economy rooms with shared bathroom facilities. Standard rooms offer excellent value for travelers wanting a comfortable hotel room without the expense, whilst the newer Superior rooms are all non-smoking and have air-conditioning. Economy rooms are a basic backpacker style room perfect for people happy to use communal bathroom facilities. Tea and coffee facilities are offered in all room types. The property does not offer cooking facilities, however there are several cheap cafe, restaurant and take-away meal options within easy walking distance of the hotel.

The Miami offers great value for money, and is ideal for the budget conscious traveller.
