This hotel is well placed on Little Bourke Street for China Town, the Princess Theatre, Parliment, cafes and trams. The staff were friendly and were happy to help with information when needed. It was clean, basic, had a descent bed and nice, cotton linen. It's a good place to use as a base. The towels were nice, shampoo etc was...

The hotel is very basic accommodation, but comfortable, pleasant staff parking available and can include breakfast at a small cost. Close to China town, theatres, restaurants and a quick exit if leaving in early morning to airport. Better value than a costly airport hotel.where all you need is a bed for the night.

My daughter and I stayed here last night as we went to see the Book of Mormon at the Princess theatre, which is directly across the road. Check in was quick and easy.

City Limits was our home for a few days while we were travelling through Australia. I think, the premise was recently renewed. Comfy beds, clean room and friendly reception led me to rate it 5/5. Considering it's not a hotel, it was okay that they put the breakfast in our fridge the day before. Also, we spontaneously decided to stay...

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.
