Every place needs a shopping mecca, and this is it for Melbourne. One of the city’s main tourist destinations for the sheer variety of entertainment that it offers, the street serves up some pretty interesting sights. There are arcades (GPO Melbourne, Royal Arcade, Strand Arcade) and the flagship stores of various brands including Myers. You should also check out the restaurants, especially GrossiFlorentino, Pellegrini’s Espresso Bar and the Flower Drum Restaurant. Melbourne Central, companion to this popular street, is no less important.Within it’s corridors are 292 retailers and great number of food outlets. Its main feature is the massive glass dome under which it is contained. Another prominent monument is the Marrionette Fob Watch. And naturally, when crowds descend in such great numbers, the people-watching is brilliant. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Melbourne Itinerary 6 Days.

This hotel is convenient - a step away from transport, shopping, restaurants. Service at front desk was OK. As for the accommodation itself don’t expect too much. Low ceilings, narrow corridors and small rooms that felt very confined. The room I stayed in had no natural light and loud music coming from downstairs on Fri night. Exhaust fan in bathroom not working. No toilet brush provided and houskeeping also don’t clean toilets - one or the other should be provided in my opinion. Bed was comfortable enough although the way it’s done, the mattress & mattress topper are easily exposed. The quilt is not encased, just put between two bed sheets and there was a yellow stain on sheets. Based on my experience I will opt to stay somewhere else next time.
Not sure how this rates as a 4 star hotel. Perhaps I just had a bad room, but it was tiny, the finishings were aging, and there was no natural light. Turn off the lights in the room in the middle of the day and it plunged into darkness. My windows were frosted over, but if you opened them you had a 30 meter high wall immediately in front, hence no light at all. Having said that, the room was comfortable and clean and I slept well. Having to pay $15 per day for wifi was not welcome either!
Pretty basic experience, nothing fancy about the rooms, quite dated and the lay out makes it feel smaller, the entrance is a bit confusing and the lobby isn't what I'd expected it to be. The staff were nice. Overall would recommend if you need to stay in the CBD but don't expect the same feel as a hotel found a bit further away.
Right in the heart of the cafes and shopping centres opposite the Emporium. We went to MCG and was a 35min walk back after the show. The only 2 story motel room I've stayed in. Bed and toilet upstairs. Lounge and little kitchen down stairs.
Great location, somewhat clean and tidy. Check in and out was easy and they stored our luggage for the day.
