All about location, luckily

Location is superb, absolutely and all we needed was a bed for a couple of nights. However, staff on reception were very disinterested, air con not working on arrival and I believe staff knew about this, we moved rooms within an hour, no help with baggage. Next room a vast improvement but shower head faulty and towel rail broken (I reported this on departure to another staff member who was totally disinterested). Location is the key and at least this place had that.

Excellenet location, only for the essentials.

We have stayed here before and its nothing amazing, but the location is unbeatable. Its at the heart of the city and the tramline, food, and shops are just outside your door. If you are mostly out and need a bed and the essentials, this place is for you

better than a hotel

Great central location with room to spread out. Perfect place to stay if in the city for a lengthy time. Close to all sightseeing, shopping, etc. Laundry facilities a bonus. V. quiet. Reception staff particularly accommodating due to circumstances that cropped up meaning I had to cancel my final night. Will stay again.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you're not too fussy about where you sit, wait for tickets to shows to be advertised at greatly reduced prices. Bought ours then ticketmaster sent through an email with reduced prices. Could have saved heaps and still had good seats.

Overall it was good. Close to everything. The one thing I have to complain about was the bed. Old & uncomfortable springs dug into you. Was like sleeping on a floor

WOW!!!!

I was so taken aback when i walked into my room, it smelt so nice which put a smile on my face. The room was very clean and tidy..It had everything we could want,even our own little balcony which suited my visitors whom smoked. The staff were fantastic and very polite. The price was perfect and very affordable,i only wished i booked more than 1 night. The location of the hotel was perfect, not far from great shops and all public transport. Thank you Darling Towers On Collins, we left very happy :)

Ive stayed here once before. Its cheap, the location is right in the heart of the city. The staff vere very helpful and its got a kitchen.The bathroom was clean . If you want luxury go elsewhere, if your needs are simple and dont want to spend a lot its perfect.

City visit convenience

Check-in access is via a 6th-floor apartment that doubles as reception/baggage room and sleeping quarters for the nightshift. Rooms were clean and tidy but the furniture is pretty tired. The kitchen facilities were excellent and extensive with full refrigerator, stove top and oven, microwave and dishwasher. The laundry has a frontloading washer/drier. Parking is a major problem, with discounts available at 1-block-away and 3-block-away commercial locations. There is no unloading bay at the street-front entrance. Much better to come by public transport, with the tram passing the front door and the railway only 2 blocks away.
