Loved our stay, rooms lovely and clean. Staff extraordinarily helpful and friendly. $16.50 breakfast buffet a great add on. Central location ...right in Chinatown if that's what you want. Only down side, the walls in the rooms have very poor insulation, showers and neighbours doors will keep the light sleepers awake...so bring your ear plugs.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is located right next to Chinatown and is central to so many Melbourne destinations. The rooms are small but completely adequate. Lots of hot water and shower pressure, iron and board. I had the most exceptionally quiet stay, but I can see that this is entirely dependent on who your...

I always stay at Mercure Welcome on Swanston and Lt Bourke. The rooms are small, but cater to everything you need. This is expected for the great rate you get for this location. The location is perfect to explore the CBD and to catch public transport. Staff are always smiling and friendly and will say hello to you in the...

Great Location and value for money. Give room to check in early which was very welcome, but when we opened the door, the room was still occupied! Promised bottle of wine to overcome our shock didn't eventuate.

I think the power points were a problem, not in very good locations. The staff were all most helpful, informative and courteous. We had a slight problem which was attended as soon as possible and another room made available to us. My friend and I travel from Perth to see the Flower Show and have done so for 3 years...

Have stayed in nicer hotels in Melbourne eg the Hilton, Quest Docklands, and Alto Hotel on Bourke. However, the location of the Mercure Welcome is the most convenient of all the hotels I have stayed in. Right in the centre of town - amongst shops and restaurants galore, and right across the road from Chinatown. Unfortunately the rooms are small...

I have always stayed here when I come to Melbourne because of the fantastic location to the Mall, Chinatown.This time we came to see Jersey Boys so we were only a 10 min walk to the theatre. This stay would have been my 5th time and the room we were allocated had an upgraded bathroom so I was so pleased...

The staff were excellent and very helpful. The room itself was looking a little tired but was reasonable for its price. The restaurant and bar was very good with quality of the breakfast excellent. Location being in the center of Melbourne made it easy to get around.

Great location, very noisy from other rooms and bathrooms. Water running through the pipes makes a lot of noise.Bathrooms are very poor standard. No room service at all for food. Staff are very friendly and restaurant buffet breakfast was excellent.

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
