Quick overnight stay

We loved the location. The carpet is new looking and so are the arm chairs. Very clean room, and the only small let down was a small amount of mould in the bathroom However the bathroom was obviously very clean. Not a hair in sight. I am fussy about cleaness. We will stay here again and the brekkie was wonderful, more choice than you could eat. Mid week meals in the restaraunt are reasonably priced.

A Short Stay

I only stayed one night because they were full (at short notice) and I'm not surprised as this hotel has better than average value and service and the room was very comfortable and reasonably quiet. I will be staying longer on my next visit to Melbourne. The staff were excellent and the location is very good, being close to the centre of the city yet in a quieter area. I also found that the generous standard 11am checkout was very helpful to take the pressure and stress out of the pack-up and move out phase.

Almost insane

I was travelling alone with my 8 year old daughter. There was no ramp leading to the hotel entrance... only stairways. So I had to lug my luggage into the hotel lobby. Check in was ok and I was lucky that I managed to get a room (before 12pm) before the official check in time. Imagine my joy as it has been a tiring 8 hours flight and arriving Melbourne at around 7am. The location of the hotel was not bad. It was just at the edge of the busy Swanston Street. However, the lifts were really slow rather small and you need to wait for quite a while, especially when there are guests with their luggage. I had requested for a late check out which the hotel reception gladly obliged. However, on the day of check out, I went out for an early lunch and upon returning to my room, I could not open the door with the key card. I was went down to the reception for assistance and there was only one staff attending to the counter. I was already flabbergasted as my transport was due to arrive and I need to retrieve my luggage in the room. The staff counter assured that they had extended the key card and advised me to try again. I tried again but it was still unsuccessful. So I had to rush down to the reception counter again. This time, the counter staff gave me another key card to try. I rushed up again... and it was still unsuccessful. I must have made at least 4 trips to the reception counter for this issue. And finally, they had their maintenance staff to open the door for me. The whole saga took at least 30 minutes to resolve. The was not enough staff at the reception counter and each time, I had to wait for me my turn.. even though I was in a rush. After retrieving my luggage, my transport came within 5 minutes. Imagine my anxiety back then. Things could be improved such as to ensure sufficient assistance at the reception counter, lifts should be upgraded (perhaps they already had) and staff to show more empathy in such situation.

Hotel with a great location

This hotel has very good location, central to all attractions, shops, restaurants and theatre. Comfy bed & lovely clean bed linen. Room was very dark with very little natural light. Limited Foxtel channels (no sport or movie). Great steak offer in the hotel restaurant from Monday to Friday.

Free WiFi???

The cost for the accommodation was on the very high side of my budget for a 7-day stay. However, the location was great and I enjoyed the room I had. It was spacious and had a chaise-lounge which made my stay very relaxed. Overall, I was very satisfied with my stay, the staff and especially the cleaning staff. My one criticism is why advertise you have free wifi, when that means you restrict guests to a 1-hour window with a 256kb speed. Sure you can get 1mb speed, but you have to pay for it. Considering the cost of the accommodation in the first place, this policy needs to be reviewed. There are cheaper options to stay in Melbourne AND get free wifi, so really this is an example of price gouging.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Both Tsindos and Dion are Greek restaurants within a 5-minute walk of the hotel. Great food at both. However, I would avoid Stalactites, another Greek restaurant in the same area. Their lamb gave me indigestion.

Business trip

Hotel was clean. it was a bit noisy due to people banging doors in the morning. staff asked me for $100 deposit for security reasons which i think isn't very reasonable (i thought normally hotel asked for credit card details and thats all.) location is alright.
