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.
