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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
I went here expecting a quick look round and out again, but became absorbed in exhibitions, one on the 4th level on the evolution and significance of books over the centuries and one on the 5th floor on the development of the state of Victoria from its earliest days. Both exhibitions were well organised and used a wide range of...
Stunning architecture, exhibits good but somehow does not engage us as some of the best museums. But it is free (except for some special exhibitions and So definitely worth a visit) particularly since it is so centrally located. Not very browsed either.
"Adorable shopping plaza with yummy treats everywhere you look"
reviewed 3 days ago by ReenyL
This building has a ton of character, the shops are unique (although maybe slightly above average prices) and there are lots of delicious treats to enjoy such as the tea room, the fancy chocolate shops and macarons.
Don't miss this cute and English-looking shopping arcade.
This place feels like a real insider tip, though very busy on the night we were there. In a city dominated by great Asian restaurants, we had a wonderful meal at this excellent little Spanish corner, especially our favourite croquettas. The ham is great, warm atmosphere and latin feel, and authentic taste of Spain in Oz.
Quaint little watery located just off the main thoroughfare that is Flinders Lane. Good atmosphere, prompt service and good food. Tried the buckwheat crepes. Next visit I’ll try the sweet crepe selections. Do yourself a favour and avoid the lunch crowd between 12-2pm.
"Quick dinner on work trip - found a pleasant surprise! "
reviewed 6 days ago by Heather M
Arrived in Melbourne for am overnight stay for a national meeting. Need a quick dinner so walking up the street from my hotel saw Sally's Kitchen. Stylish decor and welcome in by the staff. Offerings on the menu were simple but very well executed. Classic prawn cocktail to start and the cashew coated chicken tenders with coleslaw. Excellent flavours coupled...
Hubby and I stayed for 3 nights in this gorgeous little boutique hotel in a King Room overlooking Flinders lane. The service could not be faulted. We were always served with a smile, and nothing seemed too much trouble. The complimentary minibar and house made chocolate give a nice touch.
The room wasn’t too noisy (remembering it IS city centre...
Exceptional staff , facilities and location. King spa suite spacious was a worthwhile package. Breakfast was delicious and a great team of friendly staff to set up the day. Be prepared to do a lot of walking to get to know the city. Excellent short break in Melbourne
Every visit is amazing. I love the welcome, the friendliness & the funky style of the hotel. But the highlights are the cheeky lady in the elevator making every ride a joy and the cracking cocktails on the rooftop.
Loved the staff at this hotel. Always smiling and extremely friendly. Great location for our business trip. 2 free drinks and chocolates were an added bonus. Superb value for money. I would highly recommend this hotel
I travel quite regularly for work and Alto Hotel on Bourke is situated right in CBD, extremely convenient to anywhere!
The room is definitely designed for a business traveller like myself where the working desk had everything I need. From easy access power point to lighting, to space. Cosy, home away from home!
The bed and pillow were by far,...
