Great location, nice hotel. A review of Causeway 353 Hotel
The Causeway 353 Hotel in central Melbourne is the excellent hotel for location to Flinders Street station, Elizabeth Street and Swanston Streets and Queen Streets. Between Little Collins and Collins Street in Vulcane Lane, the hotel is surrounded by cafes and restaurants and within walking distance of shops and Coles express supermarket in Elizabeth Street. For it's location, the hotel is very quiet, however, the views are virtually nil, looking out onto office buildings, however, other rooms might have a better view than our eighth floor room. Very modern interior, rooms consist of spacious bathroom, with complimentary toiletries, bar fridge stocked, comfortable bed and pillows, air conditioning, LCD television, bedside radio/clock and lights. The hotel has a gym, sauna and internet access room. Wi-fi is available in room at a cost. The reception area is small, and was a bit crowded at check-out times, but other than that, you only use the lobby to access the lift to and from your room anyway. Staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast served downstairs in basement restaurant consisting of cooked breakfast (optional) or complimentary included toast, sweets, juices, condiments, tea, coffee, cereals, pastries and ham. In my opinion adequate and fresh and a good choice. Vulcane Lane becomes deserted at night and on sundays and is a bit spooky after seeing the Lane with all cafes open and busy during business hours. All in all, this is one Causeway Hotel in central Melbourne two others are located in Bourke Street and Collins Street. Totally recommended and will certainly stay again when in Melbourne city.
