The hotel room was comfortable and in a perfect location on the doorstep of lygon st. A couple of the counter staff at the front reception really need to improve their customer service skills. When we first arrived the greeting was unfriendly. Not a good first impression. Swipe cards on entry to the room did not work and on returning...

This hotel had the cleanest and best presented room I have been in. The bathroom was exceptional, no mould just beautifully cleaned. Will definitely come back here again. Beds were very comfortable, pool was lovely to swim in. Great value for money.

This hotel is very convenient. It is clean, with a parking, the room is big enough, with a fridge and a everything to make tea or coffee. Most of all it is very well located because you can go by walk to Fitzroy which is the best area of Melbourne. A beautiful park near by, lot of trees and cute...

The staff were efficient and friendly. Our room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Nice to have the use of a pool. It was a shame the room had no decent view, but it didn't really matter as we were only sleeping in it. nice and convenient for the town centre. good places to eat on Lygon street.

An oasis of a friendly, full service hotel in inner suburb of Melbourne. The hotel has a great location near little Italy of Lygon Street filled with eating places. A great place to start a stay in Melbourne. Very helpful staff.

I've been staying here off and on while family members at Peter Mac Hospital. Always easy to ring & book in - you get free parking if you ring direct - fairly tight for a big vehicle. Lovely pool, everything you need, close to hospitals, (15min walk) Lygon st just a block. There is a guest laundry which comes in...

My auntie booked this hotel for us. She lives in Wodonga and stays in Melbourne a lot to visit her daughters and grandson. The hotel is clean and pleasant. We had no issues at all. We encountered Morgan on the front desk when we checked in and then noticed she was working behind the bar in the evening and then...

Clean & comfortable are the operative words here......Don't expect 5 stars and you'll be satisfied. Perfect location for a Lygon St. stay. We enjoyed our brekkie & the bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch!. Candice at the front desk was very polite & helpful. Would I stay here again?? absolutely!

The hotel room was clean, quiet and was in good condition. I had an appointment at Royal Melbourne Hospital which was about 10 minutes walk away. There were a number of restaurants in the area and a Coles and a Woolworths not too far away.

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.

“ask for a room at the back of the hotel away from the street. But that said, it is a block back from the main action so not so bad.”
