What are you looking for

Stayed at this hotel many times over the past ten years. We frequently go into the City for an overnight stay and this place suits our requirements really well. It is designed for people who want decent accommodation whilst travelling. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the reception staff are excellent. A great location if you want the option of dining on Lygon St, likewise not that far to get to the centre of Melbourne or Vic Markets. Easy to get to the theatres on Spring St and top end of town. Always a place that we return to and the standard has never dropped.

Ok

Not a bad place however it's an old building that doesn't quite match the price. Other than that, it's ok.

Great location and friendly staff

This is our second stay at the Downtowner on Lygon, but it won't be our last one. The location is hard to beat--close to dozens of restaurants in Lygon Street, close to the museum, Imax theatre and only 30-40 minutes walk (or ten minutes by tram) from anywhere in central Melbourne. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable (and huge) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator, "I'll be back!".

Great Proximity to City without the Price

Downtowner on Lygon has it all,close to the City, large rooms and very comfortable beds.Seamless Check In and On Site Parking(although you have to pay for Parking $9.00 per day) Located near plenty of Restaurants, a Foodies "extravaganza" awaits, although you do not even have to leave the Hotel to have great Food and Drinks. The In House Bar was great with a great Hostess Casey, a credit to your Establishmenta Happy Hour goes for a few Hours and if staying in House you can get a Samplers Plate which was delicious.Will definitely return.

Weekend in Lygon Street

Felt the room was over priced for what we got and what we could compare against other places we have stayed. Room was not very well protected from corridor noise which was quite reguler during our overnight stay. The hotel is perfectly located for a quiet stroll in to the city centre and for all the buzz that the Lygon Street eateries area has to offer. Appreciate the free parking.

Great Hotel in north Melbourne CBD

First class hotel with comfortable king sized bed, clean room and excellent staff. Well located in Lygon street, close to all the north Melbourne CBD attractions. Rooms were comfortable with air conditioning which worked well, unusual in renovated, older hotels. Well equiped room with flat screen TV, which could be moved to all angles of viewing. Bathroom was good with high pressure hot water. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast had good variety and was served hot. In short one of the best hotels in Melbourne.
