Had an amazing view over Southbank with a balcony. Could watch the Casino flames from bed! Kids loved that. Room was very specious for a family of 4. Great lil apartment. Bathroom needs updating but was sufficient. Fully equipped kitchen was handy. Excellent location in the heart of the city. Short walk to anything and everything. Breakfast was lovely but...

We had booked a river view studio room and they had us on the 11th floor with wonderful views. The higher the floor the better, then the railway lines don't block the river view. Our room although not large by any means, was very comfortable with a large king size bed and flat screen tv. A sofa by the window,...

This reviewer is confessing that I have stayed here around 10 times and that is because it is a great location for a shopping trip or dining at Southbank. The rooms are comfortable and it is worth paying for a river view the view is one of the best in Melbourne. But the most consistent feature of Clarion is the...

My visit to Melbourne was short this time around, but I am very happy to have decided to stay at the Clarion Suites for this business trip! I couldn't fault the hotel in any way. I had to attend a meeting for most of my evening in the city, so I didn't even get to experience all that this hotel...

Almost everything was perfect! So satisfied with my choice! Everything was just like described and also I had a gift from them as celebration! There's nothing to say about the location, cleaness. It's right infront of the Crown hotel which means you can see the fire works during your stay at your room from 6pm-12am everyday. it was like another...

Was given a room behind the lift well. Very noisy and didn't get better as night rolled on. Requested and was kindly given a room change during the night. Alas to a room with a bed that had long since died. And then the trains started... staff lovely and friendly but sorry, that's not enough! Never again.

Stayed here for a few weeks for work. Good price for the location, room and quality of service. Location is good - about a 10-15min walk to the Melbourne CBD area with all the shops and cafes (though there are cafes close by and within hotel). Room is on the outdated side but that doesn't really bother me. Clean room,...

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.
