3 Night New Year Getaway

Hotel was perfect for what we needed with close proximity to Chinatown and 24hr Reception. There is a nice rooftop sundeck, although we couldn't get WiFi up there and it is only open until 7pm so we had to leave after a quick summer drink before dinner. Room was a good size and had a kitchenette included, however A/C only seems to have one speed so is a bit loud. Staff were great especially Owen who very kindly pre-assigned us a room vacant from the night before so we could check in early after an early morning arrival flight from Perth.

Reasonable sized room ('studio') for good cost

This was a reasonable sized room ('studio') for a reasonable cost in the centre of Melbourne. Storage was v. small. Very comfortable for two people. Strange that the bathroom light switches were outside the room, around the corner - but not a problem. About the only 'cheap' feature were the tissues and toilet paper.

Good Trip Away

Friendly staff on arrival. Very Clean hotel, Room service was a bit slow for make up of rooms. Location was not the best reasonable walk for transport and was in a lane way, bit dark of a night time for 3 ladies to be walking down.

Weekend Getaway

My boyfriend and I had an excellent stay at this hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. The hotel also has a good deal with a nearby secured carpark which was handy. We would be happy to stay again and would also recommend to our friends.

Perfect location

Probably a bit expensive compare to other 4 stars, regarding room size, but absolute perfect location, quiet street and a very helpful and friendly staff. Good car parking option nearby, with special weekend flat rate and close to public transport. Close to a delicious Laksa restaurant...

Melbourne weekend

Great hotel and great staff. My only complaint is the noise due to our room looking out on to a few lane ways and the traffic noise seemed to be amplified especially the garbage trucks. I would definitely stay there again perhaps requesting a back room.

Great longer stay in the CBD

This is a hotel tucked away in a Melbourne laneway near Chinatown and RMIT. Walking distance to many of Melbourne's attractions it is also a great location for business.
