Went with my sister for a little getaway, when we arrived the staff were very helpful and could not help us enough, as we were a little confused to how the tram system operated. The location of the hotel is very well placed and central to all transport cafes, restaurants, and shops. Our room was very clean, no complaints there.... More

This hotel is perfectly placed as a base to explore the centre of Melbourne. Everything is within walking distance. Cafes and restaurants are very close.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, room 677 which was facing an office building. I had to shut the curtains because there were ppl working there on a Saturday afternoon. You can't open the window so have to rely on the air con for ventilation. The bathroom sink floods easily so had to make sure the tap was... More

Bed was bad, pillow lumpy, room was dirty, shower head squirted in every direction, staff were nice but clueless, breakfast was dreadful and very expensive. The hotel manager looked like a shady character. Location was good though.

We recently enjoyed a three night stay at the Causeway 353. Check in process was great, we were even allowed up to our room earlier. Location is perfect for an inner city stay.

As a sole traveller, the walk up the arcade during the later part of the day was a bit intimidating. I chose the hotel because of the cafes lining the street outside and assumed there would be plenty of people about at night. However, the cafes close at about 4.00pm, making the street very abandoned.

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.
