To arrive in Melbourne by train and walk to comfortable, value for money accommodation with very helpful staff really sets the scene for a great weekend with friends to catch a theatre show. The only concern was the overnight traffic noise, not sure if this would be so noticable in other rooms/hotels, however I would certainly recommend this hotel otherwise.

Great location, great restaurant

Room was fine with a small single bed in the bedroom & a large comfortable queen in the main room. Okay amenities for cooking and reasonable amenities in the bathroom. They advertised 1 hour free wifi & I rang down for a code number at 11pm, after we had checked in. No problems, used the internet for all of 10mins then next time I went to use it the time had expired. They didn't tell me the hour had to be continuous. Consequently the next time I needed to go online I had to pay $3.50AU, which I found offensive considering all the free wifi around - just none near the hotel. Also, our wakeup call to get to the airport was booked for 6am & we got the call after 6.30am. Not good enough.

Free tram at the door

Our room was spacious and clean. There was a small kitchen with limited utensils and a small table & chairs. The tv was good and there was a small sofa though not very comfortable. The bedroom was able to be closed off and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was adequate. The heating/air conditioning wasn't brilliant but was ok. We had a room at the back so had no problems with noise but also no view. The free City Circle tram at the front door, the short walk to the supermarket and the proximity to Southern Cross station made this hotel very good value for money.

Fantastic location

The hotel is on a free tram stop which is very handy it was close to everything which was exactly what we wanted. It was also within walking distance to a lot of the sights we were going to see. The room was stuffy without the air conditioner turned on which was noisy & the ducted vents don't work in the bedrooms. The bath/shower could have been cleaner. But it was what we needed with our family. Staff were friendly & helpful. We would definitely stay again when travelling to Melbourne.

disapointed

the room was rather smaller than the photo suggested. our stay was for eight nights, during which time the floors were not cleaned, the shower and toilet were not cleaned, beds not made, and we had to continuously ask for clean towel and facecloths. there was dust everywhere and by the looks of the edges it had not been dusted for a long time. I don't know how it got its 4 star rating because it definitely was not.

Disappointment!!!!!

There was no signage in eyesight so I walked passed it. I was given the wrong entry card and walked into a room that had 3 large Indian men, sitting in their shorts and little else. The hallways were extremely warm as the airconditioning was not part of this area. I was on the 5th floor but there was still excessive street noise infiltrating during all hours of day and night. The apartment was merely a small room which squeezed in a double and single bed, a 2 seater couch, which was very uncomfortable, a mini fridge and a tv. We had to ask every day for 3 towels instead of 2 that were given. There was a dead fly near the front door when I arrived and it remained there till I left, even though the room had been 'serviced'. The bed making was well below par and the shower was never cleaned. The staff seemed friendly but that does not give you decent sservice. Disapointing to say the least! This was not what was advertised - not an appartment

CBD escape for the country traveller.

This is great place to stay if you have something on in the CBD. Public transport during the day on Latrobe Street was excellent but unfortunately not good after 6.00pm.The room is well set out and plenty of space. Kitchen had all you needed for a short stay, car parking was in the deal so very handy. The only downside was the beds are quite hard and uncomfortable, staff were very helpful. I would suggest if you are from the country and usually have no noise ask for a room off Spencer St. Our's was this time and the traffic noise was not too bad.
