If you are looking for affordable hotels in the heart of Melbourne, The City Square Motel is highly recommended
Located at 67 Swanston Street Melbourne, directly opposite the City Square - just in the center of Melbourne CBD – the hotel offers you clean and comfortable accommodation.
What I really like this hotel is that it‘s closed to all major attractions. You spend only few minutes to travel to Queen Visctoria Market, Crown Casino, Captain Cook's Cottage, David Jones, Myer- you name it.
The room is a bit too small for a four member family like mine but, hey!, at the cost of $125.00 per night with light breakfast, it is worth to stay.
