Right in the middle of the action of China Town. We stayed during the Christmas/new year break. We had connecting rooms- queen bed in one room and two singles in the other. Would like to thank the lovely lady at reception with red hair (not sure of her name-she checked us in!). Very very helpful and offered lots of advice.... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
