Four Star Melbourne hotels

Most popular areas in Melbourne for 4-star hotels

Melbourne’s buzzing City Center area sings with modern 4-star hotels – ideal for city explorers seeking total immersion in the central melee of bars, restaurants, and snazzy shops. Culture vultures, on the other hand, flock to the Southbank – just below the cosmopolitan Docklands precinct – where 4-star hotels group around cultural centers and entertainment complexes. For a waterfront Melbourne location, stay in one of the 4-star hotels in the St Kilda area, where sun-kissed beaches fringe the Port Phillip Bay.

Top 4-star hotels in Melbourne

The Travelodge Docklands, based in the heart of the dynamic Docklands precinct, provides spacious ensuite rooms with flat-screen TVs and sweeping city views. The Travelodge Southbank offers similarly stylish 4-star accommodation – with a refined in-house restaurant and relaxing low-lit bar lounge, not to mention doorstep access to the Southbank’s cultural complexes. For a fine 4-star hotel set squarely in the city center, check out the Somerset On Elizabeth, a complex of airy apartment rentals that come with cozy kitchenettes and breakfast nooks.

Where to find the best restaurants in Melbourne

Melbourne’s central areas sing with a mouthwatering mix of international cuisine options. For fine Italian food, check out the authentic Italian restaurants and bistros strung along the Carlton neighborhood, just north of the City Center. If you’re craving fresh sushi, you’re in luck – Melbournites can’t live without it. Check out the sit down and takeaway sushi bars speckled throughout the Chinatown area in the City Center. For some high-end European dining, see the modern restaurants next to the Southbank area.

The most popular things to do in Melbourne

Stroll around the bright green sun-dappled grounds of the riverfront Royal Botanic Gardens, a mixture of wild and meticulously landscaped gardens blending downy grass lawns, tropical forest, and ornamental lakes. Splurging shoppers, meanwhile, will love Queen Victoria Market, a traditional open-air market – established back in 1878 – selling gourmet and delicatessen foods, alongside artisan crafts, clothing, and jewelry. Culture vultures can immerse themselves in rolling rooms of international and Australian art at the National Gallery of Victoria – a vast art museum, spread across 2 buildings at the northeast end of the Southbank. Here, you can see European masterworks by the likes of Picasso, Degas, Manet, and Cezanne. Experience some of Melbourne’s futuristic architectural wonder in Federation Square, located beside the National Gallery. This modern public precinct is covered in silvery structures lined with geometric tiling.

Best ways to get around Melbourne

Melbourne’s public transport network is comprised of buses, trains, and trams. The vast and easy-to-use above-ground tram network is a particularly prime way to get around the central areas – to save on fares, purchase a myki-card visitor value pack at the Melbourne Visitor Center in Federation Square. Temperature permitting, it’s also fun to explore the central areas by foot or rental bike. Taxicabs are in abundance throughout the city, and can be booked direct from your 4-star hotel.
