    The internet connection is not that good sometimes. Besides, the included continental breakfast is not that delicious. Besides these, the hotel is in a very good location, the local traffic is very convenient and there are many restaurants in the local area.

    Pensione Hotel was beyond my expectation and we were really satisfied with the whole experience. The rooms are small, so I would suggest unpacking and storing any unwanted luggage in the luggage room. Otherwise, a true boutique hotel experience in a great location in Melbourne.

    Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
    tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
    feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
    city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
    throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
    never quite know what you’ll find around the next
    corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

    Buy a bus card. Buses or trains for AUD 4.2 each time and daily maximum is $ 8.4. Buses or trains in city are free. And about food, don't forget to try the coffee, deserts, and classic Aussie steak.

    16 minutes' driving or 35-40minutes' catching buses. The hotel is near the southern cross station and you can take the buses or subway there.
