Always helpful with directions and recommendations around the city. really nice...

Very close to MCG average, clean room. Everything you need included. Only negative was getting the run around. Started at address on receipt, had to walk a few streets away to reception then from reception almost a km to room. For the price I was very happy.

We stayed here as part of a girls trip and had plenty of room with three of us for our luggage and all important shopping. It was quite clean although bathroom was a little dilapidated. Brekky was basic, but adequate for when you are on the run to the shops. Conveniently located in China town and close to shops, theatres...

We were overall very happy with City Limits. It's an older hotel that has been freshly refurbished. The apartment was very clean and tidy and was serviced daily. The staff was very friendly and took time to explain things to us as we were new to the City. The hotel is on the high end of Chinatown but was within...

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 days, we were looking for a price friendly and well-located hotel with breakfast included, and this one turned out to be a great find! The hotel (as stated on its name) is more like a serviced apartment, which means that it is different from traditional hotels. The check in and...

SUMMARY . . . well worth the stay . . . good price & value, THOUGH I wasn't happy to see my review on CITY LIMITS own website disappear, presumably due to the slight negative comment below. I guess I'd be naïve to think any business online is as perfect as their reviews they leave 'up' would have us believe....

I stayed here with my younger sister and we absolutely loved it!! Staff were brilliant, room extremely clean and the location was second to none. Situated in Chinatown, the hotel is seconds away from some of the nicest and cheapest eats in Melbourne and a quick stroll to 3 of Melbourne's best theatres. We loved it !!!

Came for a couple of nights on our way to Tassie. Very cheap and comfortable with the entertainment and food precinct very close. Staff are friendly and helpful. Only a 300 metre stroll to trams and buses. Breakfast of cereal and toast are left in your room each night. Will definitely stay again.

Keeping in mind that this hotel must qualify as budget accommodation in Melbourne, it was very satisfactory. The location was great with a city tram stop not far around the corner and the theatre district (and associated dining spots) within easy walking range. Our room had been recently refurbished and was clean and comfortable. The bed was fine. The breakfast...

The location was perfect, staff friendly and rooms clean. Unfortunately our room was smaller than expected and extremely overdue for a refurb. The light breakfast was enough to kick start the day, particularly if you are planning lunch in one of the fantastic restaurants nearby.

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.
