    Hey everyone,

    I am looking to book some accommodation for round one next year, it will be my first trip to Melbourne to watch the mighty tigers at the G and i am taking my whole family across, all six of us, i'll be attending the footy then doing some sight seeing the following day before heading back to Adelaide, i just really need some recommendation as i have no clue what to look for, i would prefer to go cheap as long as it isn't filthy. thanks in advance.

    P.S. Mods, not sure if this breaks any rules but i hope you'll indulge me......cheers.

    Melbourne is one of the most expensive places you'll find for accommodation. Mantra is probably for a family as good a value as you'll get.

    I can recommend a place not to stay! That's City Edge apartments in East Melbourne... close walk to the G but the rooms are filthy!

    If you are only staying for the night and then heading back pretty soon the next day, then go for something like Pullman on the Park which is the old Hilton next to the ground. Sounds like you're only doing a bit of sight seeing the next day when driving around in your car on the way back, so the location of where you are staying doesn't really matter too much for seeing anything else. You won't even be able to go out to any decent restaurant on the night you are there given you'll be at the game, so that doesn't affect the location either.
    If you want something in the CBD so you can walk around the next day before you leave, then maybe try for something up on/near the corner of Spring St & Flinders St. Its still close to the ground, but on the edge of the city nearest the stadium.

    I can possibly help you out. I have a 3 BR Townhouse in Southbank that I sometimes rent out on Airbnb and I go crash at my missus place. Its a 15 minute walk across the Botanical Gardens to the G.
    If you're interested PM me the dates and I'll let you know if it's free and send you a link to the property so you can check it out. Cheers

    Pendles How did it feel to lose the GF in the last two minutes of the game ? and I'm guessing you were happy with the shit game you played ? you went missing on the big stage. :)

    Mantra on Russell is pretty comfotable if you dont take Johnno's joint.

    In the city near shops and food etc, still only a 10 min to the G.

    How many in the family... There are some surprisingly cheap options in east Melbourne right next to the G.. Knightsbridge apartments and magnolia boutique hotel are fairly dated but clean and have very good rates... I often stay at knightsbridge as it's a 5 min walk to the ground

    Airbnb your best bet IMO. Be good to stay in Richmond if possible to get the full atmosphere pregame at the London, All Nations or some other old school boozer in the area.
