Robinsons in the City

Robinsons in the City is a unique urban bed and breakfast. We offer 6 intimate (non-smoking) guestrooms each with a separate private or ensuite bathroom. Robinsons is a warm, friendly and personal environment.

The property was Melbourne's earliest commercial bakery (circa 1850) and the large, wood fired, brick bakery ovens are a grand feature of the "Bakehouse" breakfast room. Four of the rooms are in the baker's original home featuring; 12 foot high ceilings, pressed tin ceiling, ornate timber staircase and enchanting furnishings.

Located on the edge of the CBD, Robinsons is a short stroll to the main city shopping precinct, Spencer Outlet Centrel, South Wharf DFO complex, Southbank & Crown Entertainment Complex, Melbourne Aquarium, Skydeck 88 (Eureka Tower), Docklands (New Quay), Etihad Stadium, Melbourne's Tramcar Restaurant departure point and Festival Hall (Melbourne's "original" entertainment venue)- to name a few!

St Kilda, Port Melbourne, Carlton, Fitzroy and the whole of Melbourne's inner suburbs are well serviced by the extensive tram network - all accessible from Spencer & LaTrobe Street tram stop just 400m away.
