Good location within easy walk to most of the city, as well as the free City Circle tram outside the front door. A bit noise with the railway lines right out the front, but beautiful view if you get a Riverview room. Make sure you look behind the bedroom door for the 2nd TV !!! Nice spacious comfortable 1 bed...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your review, your feedback is much appreciated as it makes it possible for our team to assess and monitor our service quality and performance. For guest convenience our bedroom windows are double glazed; therefore we do recommend that the bedroom door is closed before retiring, so that the double glazing is more effective. We...

We arrived late at night and check in was easy. We had a connecting room on level 10. The room was modern and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable. The bedrooms have double glazing, which cuts out noise at night. My unit had a full kitchen, which was fantastic. The mini bar was well stocked. I went swimming in...

We rented a 1 bedroom apartment with fully equipped kitchen in March 2013. I used the www.wotif.com.au site and booked their mystery hotel (it was the Clarion Suites) at a discounted rate. The hotel is well situated near Flinders St Station and across from the restaurants and shops of Southgate. We did not have a view of the Yarra River...

Have stayed here before, but it was even better this time. We got upgraded to a river view room with a balcony, and enjoyed the sunset and fire show at Crown. Excellent location, friendly staff and a great night's sleep.

This is the second time hubby and I have stayed at The Clarion Suites and again, it did not disappoint. The best feature of the hotel is definitely the location being just over a bridge from Southbank.

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.
