I like the hotel location. Near train station. Airport bus ends near train station so it is very convenient. The free city tram also passes by the hotel, When I join some day tours, the pickup is near the hotel so it is very convenient especially when the pickup time is very early morning. The room is spacious and well...

The rooms were fresh and modern, and very comfortable. Perfect for one person on a brief stay. There were no instructions or guidelines in the room. I didn't know how to call reception and had trouble with the television so in both cases I had to go down to reception for help. I was unable to keep the heavy curtains...

The room was tiny but it was the last room available and it was well cleaned and had the necessary assortment of soaps and lotions....

Had a wonderful stay at Pensione Hotel. From the moment I walked up to reception to check in, I was greeted by a very friendly woman behind the counter. After a quick and hassle free check in, I went up to my room and was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. It was perfect for me as a lone...

Very friendly staff. Hubby and I love the interiors of the building. The smell of the hotel is so clean and fresh. Upgraded our accomodation to the biggest room they offer. The room we had have a beautiful view. Definitely coming back and this time with the kids.

I have stayed here before and it is so convenient to the train station/skybus. We got to check in at 11am as we were happy to stay on the ground floor. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We love staying here and will be back again

Toilet too small. Everything good. Night quite noisy. Near to Southern Cross Station, free tram zone. Late check out at 12pm. Store luggage & help us to move in our room when our room is not ready yet.

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.
