Brilliant location close to all city and Southbank shops and entertainment. Heaps of great places to eat close by. The appartments are comfortable and great for friends or family to spend a weekend or longer. Great value

Staff super friendly, position amazing, needs a bit of TLC but can't beat reasonable price/location/all facilities (eg.microwave/cook top etc.). Linen and towels all fresh, room simple but tidy and clean

Great location. The apartment we had was very roomy, modern feel, clean, excellent facilities, felt safe. Trams outside with Flinders St Station very close. Great walk through arcades To main shopping areas and plenty of places to dine at.

One of the best locations in Melbourne. Rooms are getting a bit dated and shabby, could do with a tidy up. Corridor smelt of cigarette smoke and needed a paint job. Staff very polite and helpful. Would definitely stay again if the hotel presented better.

A little disappointed to not receive my bond back when the room was left as received or an email explaining why I haven't got it back yet. Parking idea was great and very helpful a bit of a walk though

Tidy and clean but seen some hard times in relation to kitchen and bathroom. Towel rack was loose and completely fell away from wall. Bathroom layout was not good toilet squashed against wall with toilet roll behind almost had to sit sideways on. Biggest thing I found was dirty windows and blind didn't work.

This hidden little gem is right in the heart of the city. It's clean, spacious and safe providing you with all the necessities for a great getaway. It was great to relax on the balcony, and in the lounge area while we waited for our washing to be washed and dried in the washing machine/drier provided in the room.

Single bedroom apartment was basic but comfortable and had everything you needed. Perfect location on Collins St - everything is within walking and tram distance. Great place to base yourself when working and holidaying in central Melbourne.

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.
