We stayed here for four nights while my husband was working for the university. Maybe they thought we were students because it was just one up from a backpackers. The bed was tiny and short with very thin sheets and blankets leaving us very cold in the night, so we had to run the a/c all night. This came on...

Stayed here for the second time. Felt like I was in Italy as I walked around the area. Rooms reasonable size, beds comfortable, kitchen all you need to prepare breakfast. Love having breakfast at Brunettis a couple of blocks away and dinner at Il Cantuccio ( book first). Nightly rate very reasonable, free parking for about 12 cars but if...

It's no hotel, it's a room with a bed, a couch, a TV, small kitchen with basic cutlery and microwave and appropriate bathroom. They have outstanding service with very friendly people and the location can't be beat if you like Italian food. It's very handy and cheap. Can't complain about anything but nothing amazing either (apart from extra friendly staff).

Lygon Lodge is perfectly positioned on Lygon Street. It is handy to the City, RMIT and Uni of Melbourne (about a 10-15 minute walk). Restaurants and supermarkets are all within close walking distance. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the free wifi, which worked very well, was a great bonus. The check-in and check-out staff were friendly and helpful,...

It's not a 5 star hotel. Rooms are quite decent. Clean and refurbished daily with fresh towels and amenities. You have a service area where it's provided with microwave, stove, kettle and refrigerator. The best part is its location. At the heart of Carlton along Lygon Street. Abounding restaurants and cafes around the area. So much choices and no shortage...

Although not far from the city buzz it's quiet on Lygon st and you can cross the road with relative ease considering your in a city. Being a nature lover, the parks and gardens within walking distance are a delight. The lodge is close to little Italy with very good restaurants boutiques and cafes on your doorstep left and right....

This spotless hotel in the middle of bustling Lygon Street offers comfortable, generous sized rooms. Our slumber was, however, interrupted by a rhythmical huffing sound like the respirator in an intensive care ward, which wheezed at us all night. It seemed to emanate from the exhaust vent above the kitchen stove but defied all attempts to silence it. Otherwise an...

Was very clean. Value for money. Budget studio room with balcony. Small TV. Used just to sleep. Very noisy traffic and could hear other rooms' showering. If you just need a bed in the heart of Lygon Street this is good value for the rate.

My friend & I spent 2 nights in a front room with balcony. It was large,clean and well equiped with a great kitchen & a spa bath. the balcony was awesome because Lygon St has such a great vibe. the hotel is located right in the middle of the fantastic restaurant scene in Lygon St and only about a 20...
