Stayed here over the June long weekend with some of the girls. We stayed in the family room with ensuite, I found the room to be clean and comfortable. The bar down stairs is great and it is an easy walk or tram ride to get around from here.

This hotel is cheap for what you get! The roof terrace is lovely and the amenities excellent. We stayed in a queen ensuite room and the room was clean with everything we needed in terms of towels and toiletries. The hotel is nicely situated to see the sights of Melbourne and is opposite the old Gaul which is worth a...

Woke up everyday like I had a broken back but apart from that it's alright nothing special. Handy that there's a bar open till lateish. As close as your likely to get to the city centre probably a 5 minute walk.

We were very impressed with this hotel, we wanted to save a few extra bucks so we decided to stay at this accommodation instead of the "flashier, expensive ones". We paid a great cheap rate that we divided between friends, our room was clean and newly furnished, modern style, on the floor we stayed on (bunkbed rooms) facilities were share...

Overnight stay in Melbourne with a few girlfriends, and The Space Hotel was the perfect place for us - really helpful staff, great location, immaculately clean room and private bathroom, and an amazing rooftop hangout area with great views of the city. Definitely planning to stay here again on my next trip down!

Had a great time here: clean, spacious, lots of facilities: bar, gym, cinema. More than enough bathrooms: I never had to wait for anyone. The roof terras is great. The location couldn't be better as it is a 5 minutes walk from Melbourne Central station. Wifi is not free.

The hotel was clean, with basic facilities. Huge kitchen area for cooking, with washing machine & dryer. Quite away from city center (a little bit of walking required), but very near Lygon Street for Italian restaurants.

To find something so well priced with a balcony and spa and good location in melbourne isn't easy. This little gem was awesome and more than expected. Wish we could stay longer. Very clean.. only negative was hard pillow but that's minor given the rest was great.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us here at Space Hotel and for sharing your experience. It is great to read that you enjoyed our central location and the facilities available within our twin rooms. Our communal bathrooms are cleaned at least 5 times a day; we appreciate at peak times they can get messy. For any future stays...

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.
