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.

The location is execellent which is near southern cross station where I need to take skybus to go airport. Besides it is near the free tram zone which is just 5 mins walk to the station. The hotel staff are friendly and always teach me what route to take to reach my destination.

Great location, close to shops, crown and transport. Staff were very friendly. Although the room we chose to stay in was small, it was very clean, new and functional. Decor across the entire hotel was really cool. Would stay again!

I stayed for 4 nights in a matchbox room. The room was small but the price was good & it had everything that I needed. Saturday night was noisy from people leaving bars. Otherwise, it was a great experience.

Buy a bus card. Buses or trains for AUD 4.2 each time and daily maximum is $ 8.4. Buses or trains in city are free. And about food, don't forget to try the coffee, deserts, and classic Aussie steak.

"Courtyard Rooms give you an option to sit outside and enjoy some fresh air."
"I prefer the rooms facing the front entrace. There is tram noise in the room so if that bothers you, it may not be a good choice."
"Let booking know if you are a larger person"
"Ask for a quiet room"
"A "standard double" was still small in my book. So if room size matters take heed of the room descriptions."
