My favourite hotel in Melbourne closed for renovation, reopening in 2019. They were occupied up till the last day as seen from the full car park on the last three nights of my stay from 27-30April. It was bittersweet to happen to stay before the closure, but everything was fine including the friendly staff, clean rooms and working amenities. Look...

I stayed twin bed room and it was clean and gorgeous. And laundry was free to use with dry. It was convenience to go the city. Just took 5min by tram from swanston st and 15min by walking. The restaurants were near around the hotel as well.

Easy, quick check in. Clean & tidy room, with all of the amenities you could wish for. The bed was a little firm for my comfort, but otherwise had a great stay here. The location was perfect for accessing the top end of the city & restaurants in Lygon St. I would stay again.

We stayed overnight when we were in town to see a show. The room was ok but is showing its age and is rough in places. The bath for example had cracks and pitted stains and the towel hangers were coming away from the wall. There was tea and coffee making facilities in the room and there was also complimentary...

Book the motel through Booking.com all went smoothly no hassles there, checked in mid afternoon all went smoothly. The location of the motel suited us just fine as we wanted to stick around Lygon Street and check out the restaurants and were only staying overnight anyway. The room was clean and tidy, bed was good the only issue was the...

Clean and well appointed rooms. Bed was very comfortable. Parking was a bonus. Very close to restaurants and shopping. Check in and check out was quick and friendly. Bathroom a little dated but neat and clean.

Whenever we are in Melbourne we choose to stay at the Downtowner. This time we were on a 2 week motorcycle trip, and really appreciated the (free) undercover parking for the bikes, including an extra day's parking while we waited to board the Spirit of Tasmania. Good service, nice rooms, great location.

Our daughter booked this property to take her bubb to the museum and zoo and then was unable to go due to illness. We filled the reservation for her. Room was spacious, thoughtful little things like a toaster and plates and knives for a quick breaky, but the bed, even though KS, I was sliding down it all night due...

I will be back again, after discovering the Quality Downtowner Hotel on Lygon! I had a spacious, well appointed room with a view overlooking Lygon Street. It was quiet, comfortable clean and affordable, having booked a genius deal with booking.com, for a little over A$100! Lygon Street has been my favourite Melbourne hangout since the 1960s. I used to live...
