Perfect for anything in the Arts Precinct
Without question, my new favourite Melbourne hotel, at least when I'm in town for anything in the Arts precinct. (Malthouse, Arts Centre, etc.) Modern, spacious, stunning views and could not be more convenient for anything in that area. The no.1 Tram is a 5 minute walk (top of Sturt/ABC building) and will take you to the top of Swanston/Lygon in 20 minutes. Not sure if there's a great breakfast place *handy* (i.e. 5-10 mins walk) but more time and exploring may have yielded one. CBD in only 10-15 mins walk away anyway...
