Being located right in the heart of Melbourne, the hotel is incredibly easy to get to. We are approximately 30 minutes by car or taxi from Melbourne Tullamarine Airport.
Alternatively, the Skybus Airport Shuttle is only $17 per person each way and takes approximately 1 hour. Skybus will drop you off on Little Bourke Street, directly in front of the Mercure Welcome Hotel. Advance bookings are not required - simply proceed to the Skybus desk at the airport terminal.
Once you are here, getting around Melbourne is very easy, with stops for all main tram routes just metres from our doorstep, whilst Flinders Street Railway Station is a short walk down Swanston Street.
If you are arriving by car, private vehicles are not permitted on Swanston St - so please use our vehicle entrance at 265 Little Bourke Street. To get to this entrance, you can enter Little Bourke Street (please note Little Bourke Street is a one-way street) from Spring, Exhibition or Russell Streets. Immediately after you pass Swanston Street, you will find our vehicle entrance in Louden Place (on the left side of Little Bourke Street). You can then leave your car at our front door and let our professional valet parking service take care of it - valet parking is available for $35 per night.
