Travelodge Hotel Melbourne Southbank
Ranked #53 of 161 Hotels in Melbourne
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Landed in Melbourne 8.30am, hoped on the Skybus and 20min later got to Southern Cross station (soo easy and much cheaper than taxi). We walked to Travelodge probably round 15 minutes. Got to the hotel 10am, were going to leave our bags there as check-in wasn't till 2pm, however staff were great and gave us a room straight away.
We stayed in Room 817. It was clean, tidy and surprisingly spacious. Lounge with coffee table and a small dining table with two chairs opposite. There were also 2 full length mirrors which is nice to have. The TV was on the small side, but fine for an hour or so whilst having coffee or getting ready to go out and start exploring. Basic amenities, kettle, microwave, iron, luggage rack. There was only crockery and cutlery for 3, which we thought was a bit strange, however makes sense when the max occupancy is 3. Bathroom had hairdryer, was clean and with enough room. Lighting could be a little better for putting on makeup. We liked the individual lights above the bed, a bit like the reading lights in a plane, so you can read without disturbing your partner. The bed, well..... bit on the hard side. Agree with a previous review that it could do with a micro cloud topper.
Block out curtains are great for keeping out the light to sleeping in. There was no street noise as it is in a quiet location, just behind the restaurants on Southbank. The hotel does not offer room service and only serves breakfast. There are however a couple of menus in the room from surrounding restaurants who provide a delivery service to your hotel room.
About 50m from the front door is a walkway which crosses the Yarra and takes you directly to Flinders St Station and onto the heart of the city.
As we had prepaid for our stay, checkout was a breeze. Would definitely go back.

Pricewise very attractive, new and clean, however the bed comfort was average, could have been fixed by a micro cloud topper and the flat screen TV very small.
The bedspread was also a little worn and tired.
Good position! and friendly staff,
try the Italian restaurant la Camera do room service to travellodge and the meal was a standout!
No minibar, but sink and microwave.

This hotel is in a great location! It is very close to the Yarra River, restaurants, shopping, botanic gardens and more... It is located behind the Southbank area and it is safe to walk from the hotel to these restaurants, etc at night. The only negative was that the beds (and pillows) are very hard, being on a wooden base. There were also only 2 towels in the bathroom and no hand towel. The buffet breakfast is nothing special but reasonably priced for a hotel.

The combination of location and excellent value was unbeatable. As we had three in the room (2 adults and 15 year old son), I had done quite a lot of research looking for apartment options where we could have a separate bedroom, but I kept coming back to this Travelodge option. And am very pleased we did. Staff were very friendly and let us put our bicycles in a secure, interior storage room - much appreciated. Room (2 doubles) was spacious and clean. Kitchenette also a bonus. Location meant it was super-easy to either walk straight across the river into the city, around the corner to the National Gallery or Concert Hall, or to hop straight onto cycle paths (these are excellent in Melbourne). Plenty of restaurant or take-away options immediately adjacent in Southbank. Hope to make a return visit soon!
