There’s an enormous choice of hotels in Melbourne, and we were looking for somewhere close to the CBD where we could spend a fair amount of downtime with the Little Man.
We chose the Space Hotel Melbourne because of its location, which couldn’t be beaten. It’s just outside the free CBD tram and bus area, and right opposite Old Melbourne Gaol.
We’ve written a more extensive review of our stay, but if you’re looking to save on costs and are happy to use shared facilities, it’s one of the best budget hotels in Melbourne. We can also heartily recommend the eighth floor rooftop terrace, which has an outstanding view of Melbourne’s skyscrapers.
