Great location, very friendly staff and nice room. We had a ground floor room with courtyard. It's not huge but enough space for everything. Big bathroom and you can sit outside in the private courtyard. An issue at reservation was dealt with quickly, friendly and super professional. Definitely will be back.

My granddaughter and I stayed in this hotel for a weekend in Melbourne. Although the room was small, it was clean and very comfortable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The location is ideal, being just down the road from the Skybus Terminal and the free City Circle tram stop is just around the corner in Flinders St. I...

Great location, friendly staff and nice accomodations of the Pensione Hotel Melbourne. The cafe / bar in the lobby has delicious options for breakfast. The room is a little bit tight, as informed by the description, nevertheless, it was clean and comfortable for me and my husband.

The lift takes sooo long. My card to get into my room had to be fixed 4 times. The bed was lumpy. The floor hadnt been vacuumed properly as it had boby pins all over it and the shower was small and dirty.

Stayed overnight for work and was really impressed with the location, so close to Southern Cross station and where I needed to go in the city. Room was great value, nice and close with everything you need. Had breakfast in the little cafe downstairs. Absolutely delicious, I had the bacon benny which I'd highly recommend.

Was greeted by a young man with the most fantastic moustage. He really took his time to explain all about the hotel and the city sights in a very positive way. Our room was small - shoebox size (they also have matchbox size must be VERY small), so we had a bit of a challenge fitting our suitcases. Bathroom also...

Hi Charlotte, Thank you for your review! We are sorry about your uninvited guests. Rest assured our routine pest control took care of the issue, and advised it was likely a one off in relation to the obscure weather!

My partner and I stayed here for one night in February. The staff were very accommodating and friendly, checking us in far earlier than regular check in time. The room was small but perfect for the two of us and within walking distance of the crown casino and many restaurants, pubs and service stations. Would definitely stay again!

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.
