Good location

Central location but complex entry if late arrival. Luckily I followed other guests past the front self closing door and guided by them to access the key box. Needed more information about late check-in. Would be great if there is 24/7 reception desk. Split level room was a little caverness and the spiral stairs uncomfortable. The building is quite aged in style but well renovated. Staff was great to change my room to a one level room.

Best location

This is the 3rd time we have stayed, we love the central Melbourne CBD location and easy walking to every where local. Great to have the separate bedroom from the lounge for the longer stays where we can settle in without tripping over our gear. Cooking in the room is a bonus. And the building has great history also

Classic hotel in a great location

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect. So close to every thing. Myers department store was just across the road and the tram stops were around the corner . Being situated between Elizabeth and Swanston street was a huge bonus. We would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Room descriptions need updated

4 adults in a 2 bdrm apartment was very disappointed to find that bedding configuration was misleading - 1 Double and 1 single upstairs but only a pull out sofa downstairs for the fourth guest and a very uncomfortable one at that!! - only suitable for a small child. Very smelly room, windows that would not open and let in light as internal windows!! only plus is that each room had Air Conditioning which was well needed for ventilation.

Great Family Getaway

Rooms are small, but we were not spending a lot of time there so that was not a problem. Unfortunately there were renovations happening next door which continued late into the night, on our first night (Fri) which meant that we didn't get much sleep. However that ceased on the following nights and everything was great. We had a 2 bdrm apartment with a roof top balcony which was great, with just one bathroom. A great little hotel, close and convenient, reasonably priced. Would stay there again.
