Melbourne Hotels & Accommodation

Melbourne has a strong case for being the finest of all Australian cities. While it lacks the beaches and climate of Sydney, it boasts a uniquely vibrant and eclectic cultural life of its own.

On any given day, a visitor to Melbourne can be swept up in the passion and fervour of a football game, discover an exotic hidden bar, or find themselves at the cutting edge of the local scene with a gallery launch or live music gig.

Abundant Melbourne accommodation on offer can place you within easy reach of all these exciting possibilities. Cheap Melbourne hotels can be found located close to the CBD – giving you ready access to the best local attractions.

Where to begin with so much to see and do? Amongst the locals, subjects such as the best cafes, the most happening bars and the most wonderful shopping strips are always hotly debated – but if you dive in and explore, you're sure to discover something wonderful.

Best of all, you won't need a car: Melbourne's public transport system of trams, trains and buses is on hand. Whether you're looking to take the family to the delightful seaside suburb of St Kilda or check out the bars on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy – everything is so accessible. Though renting a car and seeing Melbourne's suburban precincts on your own self-drive itinerary comes with its perks too.

It's easy to immerse yourself in Melbourne's artistic spirit, for example, with a visit to the Southbank Precinct and Federation Square - or you could chase the local artistic zeitgeist by checking out hole-in –the-wall galleries and theatres across the city. And if you want to get a feel for the thriving music scene, this town rocks every night of the week in pubs, clubs, warehouses and basements.

Meanwhile, shoppers will be in heaven, with a visit to destinations such as Bourke Street Mall, the historic Royal Arcade or Chapel Street offering spectacular possibilities. And foodies will share their delight: Melbourne is rife with restaurants and cafes everywhere you go.

A wonderful city with a proudly and passionately beating heart, Melbourne will deliver an unforgettable experience. So book yourself a long stay at a Melbourne hotel and savour everything on offer!
