Great stay in Melbourne
Great little apartments, very clean and well maintained. Staff are excellent, service was outstanding. And we found the location very convenient, close to trams but also easy walking distance to Bourke Street Mall. We would happily stay again and the price is very reasonable

Great location, great value, friendly staff
Really enjoyed our stay at City limits. Stayed there when we went to a show at the Comedy so great location. 2 min walk to theatre and restaurants.Very clean. Not high lux but who needs that if you are not going to be in the room. Lovely helpful staff. Stayed on 6th floor and it was very quiet.Will definitely stay there again.

Best location for Harry Potter
The best location for Harry Potter show. Rooms newly renovated, bathroom very nice. No mould. Basic breakfast suited us but some may want more. Cafes extremely close. Noisy at night with rubbish trucks but not a deal breaker.

Karen, au1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Excellent service, great value for money
It would be hard to beat City Limits at the price I paid ($104 a night). Handy location a few minutes walk from a key tram line 86/96 that connects with Southern Cross Station. Princess Theatre over the road and Parliament a short walk. Staff very friendly and attentive. I needed ice for an ankle injury and they accommodated no problem. They have a $6 continental breakfast option. Basic but perfect for a morning start. Room clean and comfortable and spacious. Walls are quite thin so could hear the muffled conversation in the room next door. Location in Chinatown. Generally a pretty quite alleyway but the glass bins were emptied about 1.30am over the road which was loud. Amenities basic but completely adequate for a short stay. Would definitely stay again.
