Centrally located in the heart of China Town (Melbourne) close to trams and walking distance to Flinders Street, Collins Street shopping, Lygon Street and most of the Melbourne CBD. In fact it was so easy getting around and eating in ChinaTown that we ditched the rental car and got a tram and Skybus to the airport for 1/2 the price... More

This is an old place and shows it's age but it's clean and the rooms are a decent size. No USB which always bugs me, but good water pressure and plenty of hot water which is not always a guarantee at Melbourne hotels. Food is delivered from a restaurant nearby so go with something that will stand the additional distance.... More

This was a last minute pickup for a one night stay. Entrenched in the heart of Melbourne's China Town its ideally located near some amazing restaurants and the theatre scene. The room was neat and tidy, the bed was surprisingly comfortable and I had a great sleep. I'll be back.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
