The Good: You just cannot be disappointed by both the location and cost of this hotel but you really need to remember that you are getting just what you paid for. The room I had was quite comfortable and both the bed linen and that in the bathroom was clean. The Bad: When getting out of the lift to the...

Very dissapointed with this Hotel. The Price per night was reasonable, the Location is perfect and the room look allright to me, but in four nights the room was only done once. On one of the days the rubish was not even empty and there was not toilet paper. The doors of the closet didn't Close properly, so I informed...

We stayed at the Harbour View apartments for four nights during our recent trip. Our initial room was at the front of the hotel on the corner of Spencer and La Trobe streets. The room was pleasant, clean and had facilities for cooking, which was great for us. The room was laid out well, clean and pleasant. Unfortunately due to...

Great location close to all public transport & Skybus depot. Allowed drop off of bags well before 2pm check in time and happy for us to leave them for a few hours upon checkout . Beds are uncomfortable .. Apart from that a great place to stay.

Close to Southern Cross station and everything 'Melbourne'. The room was dated and the furnishings need to be changed. The 'Exercise Room' was something of a joke. But the staff were always friendly and the bed was comfortable. The price is right too.

This hotel would have to be the worst I have ever stayed at! The reverse cycle airconditioner did not work. It was winter, we complained and we got 2 little heaters. Paint peeling, power points coming off walls. Don't stay in the back rooms, the noise from the rubbish trucks and the noisy compressior at the back of the next...

This hotel is in a central location, but either Australia distributes stars like candies or they don't ask for much. This hotel would be a 3 or 2 star hotel by US or European standards. The rooms are clean and large with a kitchen, but the spring mattress has expired in the 90's... The staff is friendly, everything works, and...

I always return to the Harbour View when I can. A great location, close to Queen Victoria Markets, many restaurants, Dfo & Crown complex. Very good attentive staff & good size room. Not luxurious but certainly comfortable and functional, representing very good value !

Thank Tony W

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.
