169 Drummond Street is a 19th Century terrace home, authentically renovated, retaining original features including marble fireplaces and polished floors with Persian runners and winding cedar staircases. Nineteenth Century elegance together with 21st Century comforts and amenities distinguishes this guesthouse. The atmosphere is warm, where guests and their friends, can relax in the communal living and dining areas furnished with antiques and artwork.
We are committed to informality and generosity with 24-hour access to all facilities. 169 is located close to Melbourne’s famous Italian restaurant mecca in Lygon Street, the theatre district, Chinatown and the central business district. We overlook Carlton’s majestic gardens, the Exhibition Building and the Melbourne Museum.
