Melbourne Airport Hotels

Melbourne Airport (MEL) also known as Tullamarine Airport is located around 23 kilometres or 26 minutes without traffic from the Melbourne city or CBD.  MEL operates 4 domestic terminals and one international terminal 24 hours a day.

There is no rail service from Melbourne airport, there is a Sky Bus shuttle bus service from the airport to the Southern Cross Railway Station (formerly called Spencer Street railway station) and then connecting bus services to most hotels in the city.  If you plan to drive or catch a taxi then allow plenty of travel time as the airport traffic can be delayed by traffic and/or roadworks along the route.

Staying at a hotel within the vicinity of the Melbourne Airport can take a lot of strees out of catching early morning flights.  Many of the hotels offer a shuttle from the hotel to the airport and may allow you to park your car for a short time as well.

The top 3 hotels in the list below are within walking distance of the airport, the remaining hotels in the list would require a car or bus service to get to the airport.
