The Place to Be in the heart of Melbourne

Affordable and value for money. Clean and modern room with everything you need away from home- cozy and comfy bed, spacious room, modern and spacious bathroom with strong shower, kitchenette complete with tea/coffee making facilities, gas burner, plates , pots and pans, microwave. Though the hotel is 6-10 min walk to cheap eating places and Chinatown, the cooking facilities are handy for bacon egg and toast breakfast before you head out for your big Melbourne day. You don't have to worry about your clothes getting wrinkled as iron and board is available , and if your staying more than 2 days, their washing machine in the room comes handy. The hotel is also 6-10 min walk to the free city circle tram and buses that will take you to many attractions and shopping centres in Melbourne . You can also walk to the famous Bourke Shopping Centre for great buys. We got the studio deluxe room on special, and at under $100.00, we got more than we expected for a 1 night stay. Highly recommended!

Right in the City

We stay there on average 8 nights ... Hotel staffs are friendly , helpful but during Night shift I feel they are short handed especially only 1 Staff at reception. On every level of staffs , most of them are helpful , cheerful & willingly to assist as you wish.. The only problem happen when I report that my room door cannot be open in the afternoon , the shift that pass over did not communicate well when new staff from another shift took over. We will stranded outside our door for 1.5 hrs till 3 am in the early morning when we return at 1.15 am. They manage to call a Locksmith to open our door but couldn't fix the problem. My only share opinion , they should have someone very knowledge in handling when room door could not be open. Especially with Kids when they need to rest after return from shopping or dinner etc... Other than that, everything goes fine... Will not regret coming back to stay again... Especially the Duty Manager is very helpful , gracious in giving us the extra mile to assist us on extra bed issue...

Great location

We spent 3 days here and could walk or take the free tram everywhere we wanted to go. It's close to many types of restaurants plus theatres and shops. Room was spacious, bed comfortable. We didn't hear much traffic noise. L'Occitane toiletries a bonus. Only negative was that room service arrived at 4pm on our last day so we said to forget it.
