I had a very nice room with a balcony and a kitchenette to myself. The hotel had everything I needed for my one week stay and was very close to my workplace.
i found a really good website when my partner and i visited melbourne from the UK.. www.staywithstyle.com.au it seems to cover all the best areas of Melbourne. We stayed in a lovely apartment on the beach front in St Kilda.
a big range of accomodation in Melbourne but all were very nice looking!
Pros about staying here:
--> The location is excellence. It is short walk to Southern Cross Station & Flinders St Station.
--> It is clean and comfortable bed.
--> I got it for A$28 per night, shared room with other three people.
--> Nice international travellers.
--> It is a short walk to a tram station.
Cons about staying here:
--> The kitchen is small as compare to other YHAs.
--> One of the washing dryer does not dry well.
--> No internet service.
Overall, I will stay here again if I visit Melbourne, mainly because of the location and price.
We booked a 2-bedroom hotel in this apart'otel and it was just perfect with all the little amenities one's used to have in an apartment -- really a home away from home.
The layout's very thoughtful with a full-equipped kitchen that came with even a dishwashing machine! We didn't cook at all but was grateful for the use of the electric kettle, the fridge and the well-stocked crockery and cutlery.
There was a lovely sitting area with full-length glass windows that offered a view of the city area. There was a TV and a radio and the master-bedroom had another TV in it too.
The master-bedroom's ensuite with a long bath and a fluffly and comfortable king-sized bed. The other room came with 2 single beds and the common bathroom had a standing shower area.
All of which was impeccable -- exceptionally clean and looked brand new! :)
I was very comfortable staying here and felt really 'at home' -- loved the simple and clean decor with the very modern look and feel.
Check out the photos :)
Great convenience as located in the city centre and lots of food and shopping nearby.
There was a laundry room with 2 washing machines and dryers -- need to get the special coins from the Reception below and need to provide your own washing detergent.
Here is a great Website to Book Hotels in Australia at discounted rates.
Mouse over the hotel and it will show inclusions photos etc.
Used this site on many occasions and had no problems.
There are various hotels convenient for Melbourne Airport Australia including the Hilton melbourne Airport, the melbourne Airport Holiday Inn, for inexpensive airport hotels, the Quality Hotel and the best Western Airport Motel Melbourne
Hotels close and near to Melbourne Airport Australia
The Hilton is located directly across the road from the international and domestic airport. One can walk along the road and follow the signs or stroll through the covered walkway on arrival level 2. It takes approx 5 minutes walk , you can also take your luggage trolley up the lift to level 4 to the hotel foyer.
The hotel is large and modern built out of steel and glass. Our room was called a king size deluxe suite which was positioned on the corner of the building overlooking the airport with excellent views of the planes taking off and landing.
The room was large and comfortable with an extra large plaza TV and working desk with broadband connection. Basically, the room catered for all aspects regarding requirements for business people. The bed was extremely comfortable and pillows dreamy.
The bathroom was very spacious with a walk-in shower and bathtub. Good vanity unit and make-up mirrors.
Breakfast was okay with two chefs and a good selection and variety of cooked food. There was also a juice extractor with fresh fruit supplied, however this was tiresome to do and to me in most hotels there is usually some-one who does the job for you.
Dinner was adequate with a excellent wine list.
Facilities - consist of health club, gym and swimming pool.
We have stayed at numerous International Hilton airport hotels around the world and we found the Hilton in Melbourne to be equal with the others. If looking to be close to the airport for an early/ late flight departure then the Hilton will suit your needs.
there are several times of year when it is essential to book your accommodation well in advance. think australian open in january, formule one in march, afl grand final in september.
remember sport is like religion in melbourne, so aussies from everywhere will flock to the city and steal all the beds!!
The Accor Group has since swallowed up another lot of land and built the Novotel's cheaper sibling next to it. It's still a monopoly, no matter how they argue so prepare to pay way more than you should for an Ibis.
Function-wise, it suffices as a place to plonk your head for a night. The room is compact (they is no proper wardrobe, just a place to hang your clothes), modern and comes with all things needed (mini-fridge, flat screen TV, iron and board, Internet connection etc) to allow a business traveller, well, to rest your cerebral matter. The oddest thing about the room though is that there are no built in soap trays or anything to place your shower stuff in the shower so you literally have to bend over (yup, bad for the back) to pick up your shampoo, conditioners, shower gels and other what-have-yous from the floor just to get a simple shower. Nuclear science seems simpler. Last checked, the hotel has plans to correct this flaw. Good luck!
No pool, no gym. Lighter suitcase.
There is a ground floor cafe that serves a rather honest breakfast buffet for A$18, circa 2008.
And the service at Reception is always warm, professional and comes with a smile.
Oslo BP has a good location and this is the only reason I decided to stay there although I had read some bad reviews about this place. Well, so now an on I'll believe in these reviews the place is really dirty, the bathroom is usually messy and the kitchen well, it's the filthiest kitchen I've ever seen. The rest of the place is falling apart and lacks maintenance, dust and rubish everywhere. At least my bedroom (that wasn't prepared when I arrived) was ok with a clean fridge but a really dirty wardrobe that obviously I didn't use.
The positive side as I wrote is the location close to Albert Park (so if you're lookinf for a place close to the F1 track this is an option, but there are other BPs arround) and to the bars and pubs. The staff was friendly and helped when I needed.
I stayed at Chisholm College over Christmas and New Year 2003-2004. I paid at a weekly rate which was came out to about $16 US per day. It included a private room with shared bathroom,, free laundry, nearby free internet at the library, each floor had a kitchen with cable television, and there was also a student union with pool tables, and cable televisions. You could also use the university gym and swimming pool for a daily fee. Chisholm College is not centrally located in Melbourne, but a long tram ride north of the city. There are some nice walking trails on campus and grocery stores and restaurants are nearby.
They had a Christmas barbecue for foreign students and travelers, and on New Years Eve they had a Lord of the Rings marathon in the student union theater.
We were looking for a cosy place to stay that's away from the towns and has views of the ocean to enjoy the countryside. We found it at Southern Heights B&B located at Lavers Hill. Run by Lex and his wife Mary, we were pleasantly surprised to meet a fellow Malaysian in Mary who was originally from Sarawak.
Their house is beautiful sitting high atop a ridge of landscaped gardens with sweeping panaromic views of the countryside and the Great Southern Ocean. Unfortunately, it was misty when we arrived so we did not get to see the view.
PRIVATE GUEST WING
A choice of two very comfortable fully carpeted queen-size bedrooms at opposite ends of the private guest-wing with private entrance leading from undercover parking. Both bedrooms with own TV, heating (both room & bed) and of course private en suite.
Both bedrooms are divided by guest entrance and relaxing lounge complete with kitchenette with tea & coffee making facilities, assuring privacy.
We were the only guests at the time and chose a room that faces the gardens and the ocean. In the morning, we were treated to a show by big colourful parrots and other birds who came to feast in the garden.
Mary makes freshly home baked croissants which were absolutely delicious. Followed by fresh fruits, spreads and eggs, we were very full by the time we finished although Lex commented that we have pretty small appetites! Breakfast time of your choosing.
Also included is a complimentary PERSONAL guided evening GLOW WORM tour in nearby rain forest on request. Unfortunately, it rained :-( so it got quite cold.
For A$139 per night
As we were arriving late into Geelong from Kuala Lumpur, we needed to find a place to stay that's easy to find at night and we found it at Corio Bay Motel (about 8 min from Avalon airport)
Booking was easy via the internet and a room number was assigned to us before we arrive. A room key was also left under the mat so we let ourselves into the room when we arrived at 10.30pm.
For A$85 including breakfast (milk, bread and biscuits available in room), it was clean and affordable. Room is big enough for 3 people as it comes with a double bed and a single bed.
UCA was a good place to stay given both proce and location. Maybe a wee bit on the noisy side but being in the middle of town that is to be expected. The room was a good size and included full cooking facilities plus a TV that was between black&white and colour!! The location is also easy for taxi's in & out to the airport being close to the motorway - it took us just under 20 minutes to get from Tullamarine to the hotel from door!
We booked the UCA via lastminute.com.au so got our room for $AUS89 per night which is a real steal in Melbourne, especially given its location.
The front desk was excellent and they were always helpful. The key system was good with a swipe card system to allow you 24 hour access plus extra security for each floor. An inhouse camera system ensured even more security. The apartment we had was quite basic but catered to our needs. The hotel is over the road from Hardware lane and its 40 or so places to eat & drink so you never have to travel far for food. If you ant to cook there are full cooking facilities and some grocery stores close by.
nice, clean Three Star Apartment style Hotel rooms.
You can hear trains and trams early in the morning, this is typical for the streets of CBD Melbourne but more so here being situated high above Flinders Street Station.
Opp Flinders Street Station and overlooks the Yarra river
Close to Fed Square and transport to anywhere in Victoria
Check the rates on wotif.com.au of course as you will always get a better rate than from the management.
