Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

I stayed here for business for two nights. Found the rooms to be verry small, but clean and well presented. The room had an impressively large TV mounted on the wall and the bed was comfortable. If I needed to stay right in the middle of the city again, I would stay here again without hesitation.

Upon arrival at the hotel the staff were so friendly. We arrived at 11am however check in wasn't until 2pm. We left our bags with reception and they had my mobile number to ring me if the room was ready earlier than 2pm. We were settled in the room by 1230pm. Our room was on the 6th floor and the...

Poor quality hotel but very convenient - recent superficial face lift- our room partitioned crudely from a bigger space to make more rooms. A few trappings of IBIS decor but little else to justify the name.... Poor quality electrical fittings , water leaking in the lifts and little response from staff to do anything about it when we told them......

Well positioned but hard to find! Nice large room decorated in a modern style. Cleaner windows would let in more light. The spacious bathroom was appreciated by my 93 year old mother who was with us. Real muesli would enhance breakfast immensely.

Yes it is budget, but clean tidy and quiet with helpful staff. Great location on Elizabeth St, with trams just outside the door. Close to a variety of inexpensive eateries and a Coles supermarket. If you want to cruise the shops, it would be hard to find a better location. I have stayed twice each time for 4 days and...

Very clean room and very good access to public transportation. I love the pillows and the excellent customer service from Gil and the other staff members! It's good value for your money. Would definitely recommend to tourists on a low budget and relying on public transportation.

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.
