How can I get cheap hotels in Melbourne?

Best tips to find a cheap hotel in Melbourne

  1. If you're looking to travel to Melbourne on a budget, you'll be happy to know that you can find hotels for as low as $21. Of course, that price is affected by amenities, star rating, and even the time of year you visit. At most, hotel prices can be as high as $1,754. Staying a short amount of time in Melbourne is an effective way to reduce hotel costs.

  2. When you cut your vacation down to just a few days, you don't have to worry as much about hotel prices since you don't have that many nights to stay. For budget hotels in Melbourne, 3 to 4 days should be all the nights you need. That's generally enough to enjoy the city's top attractions, though there's certainly enough to do to warrant a week-long trip.

  3. When booking cheap hotel rooms in Melbourne, it's typically best to book about 3 weeks in advance. Book further in advance than that and you could be paying too much for your room, as hotels will often overestimate future demand. However, if you wait too long, you might find that the hotel has been completely booked.

  4. When you utilize search filters on Expedia, you'll be able to narrow down your results in a flash. These search filters cover a wide variety of factors you may be interested in when it comes to finding a cheap hotel in Melbourne, including amenities such as Free Breakfast, 2-star rating, or proximity to local attractions. You can even set filters for price limits to ensure that all the displayed results are within your budget.

  5. For additional savings on Melbourne cheap hotels, be sure to check out Expedia Rewards. You may be eligible for extra discounts on your trip, and you can earn points for even more savings on your next trip. Becoming a member is entirely free.
