I booked a two bedroom apartment for one night stay. I wasn't impressed with the state of the room when I checked in. Room & Facility: The two bedroom apartment size is standard. Beds are quite comfortable. However, the apartment could be benefit with splashes of paint to make it brighter. The toilet is leaking. No one picked up the...

This was our second stay at the star gate, I have to admit not as good as the first visit, I didn't realise all the appartments are not the same this one was much smaller than the first, but let me say still on par with other places we have stayed at, it was facing the street so s bit...

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is in a good location and close to the tram lines. The staff at reception were friendly and efficient. Our room looked like it may have been upgraded. It was clean and the bed was comfy. The only downside was that it was next to the lift so a bit noisy

Stayed for one night, just a basic room, lack cleanliness. Not worth the money. No recommendations. Only good thing about it was the location - inside CBD, very close to the market. Lots of restaurants nearby.

Even though the star rating was low we were still surprised by how small and outdated the room was, more a bed sit than an apartment. $360 for 3 nights and despite the cold wet Melbourne weather we chose to stay out all day than return to the room. Good points are helpful and friendly reception staff and fresh towels...

Staying here over Grand Final weekend. The room is of average size and has very basic amenities. The laundry equipment wasn't working and the oven didn't heat up. On the plus side, the location is handy to the CBD and Victoria Markets.

Not happy with the state of the room unclean floor in some spots, the dishes werent all clean, no conditioner, even the shampoo wasnt full, the owners of this establishment obviously take no pride in their joint, the only good thing was the freindly staff which should just be a given regardless of wherever your staying so thats saying something...

Great location to access the Vic Markets, along with the motorcycle shops. Short walk to Lygon street for dinner. Spacious room, could do with a bit more cleaning. No toaster in the room. Car parking is very tight and not suitable for vehicles over 2m high. I called as we where in the city early and got early check in...

I was taking the kids to the city and surrounds for a sightseeing weekend so was just looking for somewhere to sleep on a Saturday night.

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.
