The magic of Melbourne is just a lane way away and so is the best Melbourne accommodation. Once you know where to go then you'll know where to stay. Will you live it up in St Kilda?

However, Melbourne offers a smorgas board of activities. And so booking early for your Melbourne hotel or accommodation is so important.
Although Melbourne is arguably Australia's culinary capital, many who search for a room to stay, are here for one thing: Sport. So why not search for a place that overlooks the MCG for the penultimate game of the cricket calendar, the Boxing Day Test. Or is a wander away from the Melbourne Park Tennis Arena for The Australian Open for you. Be within a drive from Albert Park for the Qantas Melbourne F1 Race. Summer in Melbourne is back to back sporting events or more accurately: year round, because the horses will have only just finished with the Spring Carnival at Caulfield. But being in this sports mad city you may do like the Romans do and find a hotel where you can lie in bed and watch replays of the AFL, surely not!
Did someone say Golf? Kingston Heath Golf Club is home to The Australian Masters on in November, but if watching golf isn't your thing, then find accommodation that overlooks a golf course and bring the clubs with you. This summer in Melbourne aim for four sports in one day, but it shouldn't matter where you stay because you'll be able to catch a tram or train to most areas for the action.
