I mainly went to Melbourne to visit a family friend. I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel near to the city. The hotel itself was good, except the first room I was offered was at the front of the hotel and very noisy. The receptionist did find me a quieter room at the back of the hotel, all be it smaller. I was given vouchers to have breakfast in a nearby restaurant to cover the difference in room tariffs. Personally the area was a complete let down to me, as I did not feel safe going out alone at night. Thankfully I was only there two days, any longer and I would have moved hotels.
