We stayed for three nights. The room was small but clean the staff were nice and it was in a great location. Would stay again. There was complimentary soap but no shampoo or conditioner. The breakfast was average for $9. Overall it was a good option for people on a budget.

This hotel was perfect for me since it was a great price and as a solo traveler all I needed was a safe place to sleep, shower and store my luggage. To go above level one (reception) in the lift you need to swipe your room key - you can only go to the floor linked to the key. This...

The bed and shower were excellent and staff and reception were very pleasant and helpful BUT.... • No phone in room to contact reception. • The supplied electric jug was impossible to fill in the hand basin. • no chair or desk/table in the room. • The narrow gap at the foot of the bed meant that every time I...

We were in Melbourne for the Australian Open 2017, and with the summer/school holidays, expect the hotels to be expensive and booked. What I like the most about Ibis (Accor Group) is that you know what to expect (depending on the level you select i.e. budget, normal ibis, mercure, etc). So you hardly get any strange surprises with Accor. No...

24 hour reception service and very friendly staff. The rooms are big and clean. You can have breakfast form $9.00. Even this hotel is located on the main street you can't hear any traffic. We were there as the Australian open were on and the hotel was fully booked, and it was good at the night time no trouble. When...

We couldn't find any accommodation in Melbourne for under $220 on a busy Friday night so we settled on this hotel at a bargain price. We weren't disappointed. The room was on the 4th floor and was small but clean. The air con worked well and the bed was comfortable. We both enjoyed a good night sleep and it was...

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.
