This is a no frills hotel but clean, central and comfortable. Somewhat difficult for a Taxi to stop outside entrance as the tram line run just in font. Flinders street Train station is within walking distance and trams from hotel to Flinders street are free.

We stayed for three nights. The room was small but clean the staff were nice and it was in a great location. Would stay again. There was complimentary soap but no shampoo or conditioner. The breakfast was average for $9. Overall it was a good option for people on a budget.

This hotel was perfect for me since it was a great price and as a solo traveler all I needed was a safe place to sleep, shower and store my luggage. To go above level one (reception) in the lift you need to swipe your room key - you can only go to the floor linked to the key. This...

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.
