City Limits Hotel, Melbourne
Great location
The hotel is in a great location a block either way from tram and bus. The room was comfortable and the service was exceptional. I arrived exhausted from LA and a staff member kindly made up a room early for me. I was very impressed. Most of the staff were friendly and there's a cute cafe right next door for breakfast and coffee.

Comfortable, quiet, and convenient
We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the comfortable bed, the kitchenette, and the relative spaciousness of our room. The location is great, too. It's in a fairly quiet part of Chinatown by Parliament and a few minutes' walk to multiple tram, train, and bus lines. Would stay here again!
