The Best Cheap Melbourne Hotels

Let's admit: cheap hotels are not always great!

Nevertheless, here is a list of the best cheap Melbourne hotels that will give you the best of both worlds – reasonably good comfort without hurting your wallet.

We have looked at the 3 and 3 ½ star Melbourne hotels and assessed their customer ratings on - and have only chosen ratings above 8 (out of 10).

That is based on numerous customer reviews and is pretty good for a cheap hotel.

Star ratings as an indicator of quality for a hotel are really only a guide and can be misleading.

Decided by the people who stayed there the list of the best cheap Melbourne hotels is sorted by their customer ratings - highest first.
