We stayed at the Causeway Inn. What an amazing location. Just off the Mall it's a great little hind away, with little restaurants & cafés right outside.
They put us in a disabled room so it was quite big. Our friends had a standard room which was small but you only sleep there. The price was fantastic & included breakfast of fruit, yogurt, toast, tea, coffee & croissants. I would definitely stay there again. My complaint would only be that the windows were dirty.

for short/weekend trips. room and bathroom were a bit small for a long stay, when you tend to 'spread out'. however, this place was great for our 4 day visit as we hardly spent any time in the room.
the rooms and the limited facilities are clean and it falls into the category of 'you get what you pay for', the room was quite but the window view was of a dilapidated building next door about 5m away but that didn't bother us (herds of wildebeast?) included continental breakfast was good with a laneway full of cafes right outside the hotel entrance.
the location is hard to beat, just off bourke st mall, the airport express will drop you about 200 yds away (after you have changed at the skybus terminal).
all the staff we met were friendly and helpful.
the security lift from the lobby to level 2 is ok, except that this lift does actually go to all floors and is used by the cleaning staff who 'lock it off' at various times. we used the stairs a couple of times but if you have bags or difficulty on stairs, be prepared.

Despite the address being "Bourke Street", the hotel entry is located off Bourke Street down an alleyway appropriately named "The Causeway" with several cafes and small restaurants. It's a good location if you are in town for the shopping.

The hotel layout is a bit odd in that there is a security card controlled lift that takes you to the second floor where you then walk through the breakfast room to the other end of the building and then up in another lift to the rooms. No matter ... the Hotel was clean and comfortable. Our room (504) faced the adjacent Royal arcade. We didn't hear any of the trams in the mall during the night nor any of the usual city sounds which was good.

Breakfast was simple - a choice of a few cereals, make your own toast, croissants, some fruit and endless coffee.

The reception staff were friendly and efficient. I'd be happy to stay here again. Good value.

This hotel ticks all the boxes for a city visit. Yes the rooms are small but spotlessly clean, comfortable and quiet all the attractions are within walking distance or a short tram ride away . China Town a few minutes walk with excellent restaurants. Breakfast in the hotel very good staff very helpful WIFI available for a very small charge and reception good. Would stay again but have to book early we tried to book another night a week in advance but was fully booked.

This property is just a hop skip and jump from the Bourke Street Mall, staff were great, room had everything except a view but spent very little time in it during the day. So much to see and do, trams made travelling around Melbourne so easy, entertainment in the Mall fantastic, food unbelievable. It was the best weekend ever and cheap as chips.

Room Tip: A great place to rest when on a short stay in Melbourne.

I have given this Hotel and Excellent rating because of the following reasons--You get what you pay for, in this case the Hotel is quite cheap and is in the best location of the central area of Melbourne, you are steps away from the Melbourne Trams, Major shopping centre , restaurants abound, including China Town which about a block away and a fabulous French Laurent Boulangerie Patisserie , only steps away down the end of the lane from the Hotel.Our Room was comfortable and clean , a little on the old side ,and yes, you had to take 2 lifts to get to the rooms, but it is far better then walking up stairs when you are not that young. The staff were the best I have ever came accross, Genevieve , who greeted us was absolutely fantastic .I would definately stay here again, as its the best value Hotel in Melbourne.
