Good location, walk into city centre. Small rooms but everything you would need including tea and coffee making facilities. Excellent front of house staff who allowed us to check in early after a midnight flight

Stayed: September 2013, travelled as a couple

Situated near Southern Cross Station this hotel is in a great location. Near trams, trains, Crown Casino its an easy walk to go anywhere. I stayed on a Friday night after a meeting in the city, there no noise heard at all from the Friday night revellers out in the street. The beds are comfortable and the rooms small but well appointed. Would certainly recommend to friends and would stay here again.

If you're in Melbourne to do things, rather than hang out in your motel all day, this place is great. The service was friendly and efficient, the room was clean and pleasant and the location is superb. Parking was hassle free if you need your car. Yes, the rooms are small, but you are in the center of the city and for the price, that is surely to be expected. The bathroom in particular is very tight. But clean! We would stay again.

The hotel is in the perfect location so close to everything , train station, casino , Ethihad Stadium . I think this will be my hotel of choice from now on when traveling to Melbourne .. The rooms are a little on the small size, but for two people it was fine. Great value !!

My husband and I stayed at the Pensione for one night earlier this week. It was an unexpected overnight trip and because of a big convention in Melbourne, accommodation was not easy to find. How lucky were we to not only find the Pensione had a room but it was very reasonably priced. The room was small, we were aware that it was going to be as it was a Petite Double room but I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as small as I was expecting. Very clean, comfortable bed, quiet and in a great location.......couldn't have asked for more. The bonus was the very friendly and helpful staff. We would definitely stay there again, wish we could have stayed longer.
