This place was fantastic. I was given a brilliant corner suite and it was huge. Cleanliness was 5 star, in fact everything was 5 star..... So why give it only 4 stars? The hotel restaurant was not open, and the only place in the hotel to eat was the Cricketers arms bar on the ground floor of the hotel. The...

A Great Place to stay. We went to the Theatre at 8.00pm and afterwards came back to the hotel. We wanted to finish the night with a nightcap in a lounge chair type environment but the only place open was the cricketers bar, Basically a pub; not what we wanted so we ordered room service and ate in our room....

We stayed only a night so my comments are limited to just this brief stay. The hotel is full of old world charm which can also be read as an old hotel with dated fittings. The room was fine and certainly large enough. The bathroom was dated but ok with the shower over the cramped bath, typical of this style...

When we fist arrived we were a bit early so our room wasn't ready - however the concierge took care of our luggage while we went out and placed it in the room on our return.

Fantastic for lovers of heritage buildings. It was wonderful to experience the history and old world charm of this great establishment. The room was clean, comfortable and affordable. The location of the hotel is perfect if going to see a show at the princess theatre. Breakfast was fantastic and the staff were very attentive. Thank you!

The hotel was clean. The hotel staff were very attentive and friendly. A free tram station was outside hotel. Not far to walk to centre of city or restaurants. Close to parks. Hotel rooms are dated but comfortable.

This hotel is in a fantastic location, the rooms are presented well and clean. The decor is quite "old school" without being run down. The staff are great but the rooms are lacking in some modern touches. For example, there is no ventilation in the bathrooms and the heating/cooling systems in the rooms look about 30 years old.

Staying in Central Business District

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.

Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance.
