    Great location on Melbourne's Golden Mile...
    Friendly, helpful service...warm welcome by Hassan most appreciated.
    Extremely adequate accommodation...comfortable, clean...only complaint was that restaurant and spa both not operating during our stay.
    Room nice and warm even without using the heat.
    Not too noisy.
    Would recommend to others, definitely :-)

    Unique Quality: Service very good.
    Quaint rooms set around internal courtyard.
    Close to shops, restaurants, free transport.

    Directions: Short walk to Spring st, tram stops and Parliament House.
    In the Chinatown precinct.
    Close to lots of shopping and restaurants.

If it was me I'd go for Gordon Place, but then again, I like heritage buildings. Gordon Place has an amazing history. Although its a long time since I've been inside the covered courtyard around the palm tree, it a very relaxing place to be. The 2 properties are about a block apart and I would think that Gordon Place would be quieter.

Advice of Accomm

by excalibur08

Will be in Melbourne for the 1st time for 3 days in Dec. Looking for an accomm that will not blow my budget yet is centrally located (near shops, not red light areas) and is near public transport. Found the following:-

(a) Kingsgate Hotel (Bourke St)
(b) Explorers' Inn (Flinders St)
(c) Somerset Gordon Place
(d) Travelodge South Bank

How are these? Should I be staying near Melbourne Central to be near shops?

Also, anyone know where the Easystay motels are located? Which one would be centrally located?

Appreciate any help. Tx.

I think I've stayed at the Travelodge in Southbank (though it may have had another name then) and I think location wise it would be the pick of the hotels you've listed - so many restaurants and shops, picturesque with the Yarra river, but still not a long walk to parts of the city and shopping.
I haven't stayed at the Kingsgate, but have been in there and seems nice and popular - and close to shopping streets. Right next door is a nice French restaurant I've been to, Restaurant Bergerac.

Hope this helps a bit.

Thanks. I'll be there on a Fri, Sat and Sun. Does it make sense to stay in the city centre during the weekend? Would there be things to do? Or should I just move to St Kilda's area?

My parents have stayed at the Travelodge and I have seen their room. It is a very very nice budget hotel. It's new and very clean. The rooms are big and breakfast is nice too. It's only a few minutes to for example the National Gallery of Victoria, The Crown Casino complex, the Yarra river, the Botanic Gardens, Flinders Street Station and shopping. Definitely recommended!!!

Re: Re: Advice of Accomm

Oh BTW.... There is lots of things to do in the weekend, and if you want to go to St. Kilda, which isn't very special in my opinion you can just take the tram and you're there in 20 minutes or so. The tram stops in front of Flinders St. Station.

Sorry but can't help you with the other hotels/motels...

Re: Re: Advice of Accomm

Thanks for your help. By the way, are sydney, melbourne and canberra credit card friendly? Is Visa widely acceptable at the shops and restaurants? Are there additional charges if credit cards are used instead of cash?

Re: Re: Advice of Accomm

by martin_nl

CC's are accepted everywhere!! I had no problem anywhere with my MC, and I suppose Visa should be perfectly fine too.
