If you like to have party and socialise, there is always something going on. However, if you need to rest after a long flight, it's quiet enough in the rooms. The rooms are nice, with TV and comfy beds and the hotel also has a gym and a movie room. What we didn't like was that there were not enough...

This is such a cool hotel!! We stayed for just under a week and loved it. Great rooms, great facilities and very helpful staff. Location is good too, very show walk and you are at the top end of the city centre with the mall and everything right there. Also a great bar/restaurant joined on with a mean chicken parmy...

I have held off with this review as I wanted to experience all types of hostels before making a review. After experiencing both good and bad hostels this is by far the best hostel I have stayed in whilst been in Australia. It accommodates for all your average back packers, people who want a cheap night to stay (say for...

We stayed here two times, even in 6 beds room and private one. Both was a very decent room to stay. Very neat and clean. Not much to say but a very recommend for a travelers. The kitchen is quite big even during dinner time, and there is jacuzzi pool on the rooftop. Very nice 4 days experience with space.

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.
