Ideal Location

I find that the hotel is in an ideal location for those of us who are regional train commuters. This time I was disappointed with: 1) TV reception - lack of digital tv channels & 2) bathroom facilities - shower door designed for thin, skinny patrons.

Good cheap deal

The room is not spacious, but adequate. The only down side is the pathetic wifi. It's super slow and you need to pay daily for a slightly better connection. It just doesn't seem to worth the extra money. Anyway, for the amount I paid for the room, I can't make any complains at all. It's the best deal I can get in CBD of melbourne!

Great for overnight stay

This type of facility is perfect for someone who simply requires clean, functional and central accommodation in Melbourne CBD without the cost of a larger hotel room. It is compact as the name shoebox room suggests but I like the fact this hotel is prepared to cater for travellers who don't need more space. There's definately not enough room to swing a cat but I am allergic to cats anyway! Friendly helpful staff, great cafe adjacent lobby. 2 min to southern cross station.

Convenient Business Stay

Great location for an overnight business stay. Handy to Southern Cross Station for those travelling to Melbourne by train. The only thing that disappointed me was the bathroom. I found the shower door too narrow - OK for a very slim person, but not for me.

short trip 2 nights

On the whole ok stay except for some small hiccups. Firstly, another guest managed to enter the room with a wrongly cut key. Nothing was heard from the front desk until I asked them about what happened the next morning. Toiletries were given for only 2 adults when it was a Trio room booked for 3 adults the first day. Although the 3rd set was given after a call to the front desk. The 2nd day's stay, only 1 set of toiletries was given for 3 adults! I liked how they kept the luggages for us though for free.
