Didn't Enjoy At All

We have stayed in many hotels, but this was the worst ever. We didn't stay in the main hotel but were shuffled off round the corner to what seemed like an after-thought of a place - the word "dingy" came to mind. The corridors reeked of cigarette smoke and - for a non-smoking "hotel" (a word I use very loosely) I was extremely disappointed that my pillow smelled strongly of cigarettes. It's all I could smell while trying to sleep. No view whatsoever except tree branches. And noisy! Trucks unloading throughout the night. Even though the location was excellent I would not stay here again ever.

It is not really river side but it is convenient

Room 3 star - in a great position, close to Southern Cross Station and within walking distance of the main shopping area, Theatres, South Bank and is quiet and relatively inexpensive.

Great long weekend

Easy access to trams and short walk (15 mins) to Southbank. Had great help from the reception staff on all days we were there. Highly recommended in terms of amenities, location and staff. Comfortable and nicely decorated. The only downside was noisy neighbours (two floors below on balcony) where more than twelve people were partying overnight - not hugely noisy individually but combined was a bit of a racket.

Wedding event

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel. It was roomy, clean , sunny and comfortable. Weekday cleaners very good however the weekend ones weren't too energetic (not sure if anything was cleaned, towels left but no face cloths, bath mat, hand towel or toilet paper). I am sure we could have got some from reception but late at night couldn't be bothered. Hotel is within walking distance to everything around the CBD. If you don't mind a bit of noise during night and in morning you will be ok (didn't bother us at all) as there are clubs just around the corner and are very busy at night. I would definitely come back here to stay and would recommend to every one.

Weekend away

Mostly excellent - lovely apartment, very well fitted out. Staff were knowledgeable and very obliging. Only problem was noisy people on balconies below throughout the night - Friday multiple people (in excess of 12) - talking loudly, smoking, drinking on balcony on one side - and on Saturday below the other bedroom. Highly recommended.

Close to everything

I checked in here for the night during the heatwave and the room was fabulously cool. Pleasantly surprised at the size of the bedroom and bathroom. The elevator had a strange smell but other than that, all was great
