My partner and I stayed at the Mercure Welcome Melbourne. After checking in we went up to our room and it was located at the end of a small hallway where above us the roof had brown stains on it. We walked into our room which was small and dirty. The carpet was stained(I wore shoes the whole time on...

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times over a number of years. The location is excellent with public transport at the door. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is reasonably priced although, other than several daily specials, the menu does not change. The rooms need a good makeover and a thorough clean. Whilst appearing clean on arrival...

We were in Melbourne for the Flower show. Excellent location, within walking distance to lots of attractions. Staff very helpful. Rooms are on the small size and bathroom could do with a refurb. Overall experience was very good - would stay again.

Location,locaton,location. This Hotel is within easy walking distance of many highlights of Melbourne and so easy to catch trams to other places further afield. Whilst the room was quite small, it was well serviced and clean and from the 12th floor had great views. Soul cafe has great coffee and snacks whilst the restaurant was adequate.

I only stayed 1 night this time around, but will take advantage of Melbourne's various attractions next time around. My short stay @ the hotel was excellent, upon arrival I had no agenda planned barring checking in. Mathew (the concierge) could not have been more friendly & helpful to me, he drew me a map of how to walk to...

Stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed the excellent location of this hotel...it is in the middle of everything !! We walked everywhere and caught the free tram around to the factory outlets. Rooms were nicely laid out and very clean. Unfortunately there is not much of a view ( looks over other hotels) but how long do you...

Loved our stay, rooms lovely and clean. Staff extraordinarily helpful and friendly. $16.50 breakfast buffet a great add on. Central location ...right in Chinatown if that's what you want. Only down side, the walls in the rooms have very poor insulation, showers and neighbours doors will keep the light sleepers awake...so bring your ear plugs.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is located right next to Chinatown and is central to so many Melbourne destinations. The rooms are small but completely adequate. Lots of hot water and shower pressure, iron and board. I had the most exceptionally quiet stay, but I can see that this is entirely dependent on who your...

I always stay at Mercure Welcome on Swanston and Lt Bourke. The rooms are small, but cater to everything you need. This is expected for the great rate you get for this location. The location is perfect to explore the CBD and to catch public transport. Staff are always smiling and friendly and will say hello to you in the...

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.
