The hotel location is vey good but make sure your room is away from the lifts as they are very noisy. The hotel is aware of the issue (read other reviews). Rooms are small and a bit dated but generally o.k.

Many selling point of this hotel is location. Price for this is also reasonable compared to others, but that doesn't mean it has to feel worn out and tired. Room felt a bit like a cell with painted breeze block walls. Fridge was also very noisy. Staff were friendly and efficient enough. We stayed here for 2 nights, just about...

The only advantage of this hotel is its location. Even though described as mid-budget hotel for business travellers, being heavy business traveller who spends more than 50% of its time on the road I really disagree with it being marked as good for business as it has a lot of cons: - thin walls and very bad door isolation -...

Hotel was in a great location, within walking distance of a lot of the city's major attractions. Hotel itself was well-kept and had everything you needed. Staff at reception were friendly and helpful when asked questions.

Enjoyed our stay at Mercure. Room small but comfortable, clean. Beds great and we had really comfortable sleeps. Nice bathroom. Breakfast is delicious and so much to choose from; fruits, cereals, yoghurt, eggs anyway, bacon, sausages, tomato, fried rice, juice, cappucino machine, different bread for toasts. Very central. Definitely stay again.

This hotel is in the heart of China Town. Very vibrant area with so much to do. Arriving at the hotel I missed the entrance first time around due to road works, and had to drive around again. Inside the lobby and reception area is done very well and was made to feel welcome. The bedrooms however are very small,...

Stayed four nights. Can't fault it. The room was small but comfortable, quite and clean. Nice bar and restaurant. Very central to everything. If you can't walk trams outside front door will take you anywhere. Staff friendly and accommodating.

Our trip to Melbourne was very last minute so we wanted accomodation on a budget in a great location. We definitely found that with the Mercure Welcome. The rooms are quite small, so if you're planning on doing some morning Tai Chi or aerobics then this isn't going to be the spot for you. But if you're the holidayer that's...

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.
