I visited Melbourne on a busy weekend and was pleasantly surprised to see the Space Hotel offering affordable accommodation for the weekend. This was my second time to the hotel - And it is perfectly fine if you're happy with basic and affordable accommodation with shared bathrooms. The entire hotel was spotlessly clean, reception staff were delightful. My only complaint... More

Lets face it, this isn't the Ritz Carlton, leave your expectations at the door, you do fine. Well managed overall, except for the occasional poor service attitude from the reception, you get what you pay for. However, I would recommend it to anyone who only need a clean bed, shower and nothing else.

Space Hotel is a great family option with family rooms with ensuite, double bed and bunks. It is flash packing rather than a traditional hotel, but facilities are several steps up over most hostels. We had ample towels replaced daily and toiletries provided. We loved the rooftop spa on a cold winters night with views over the city. The location... More

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.
