Had a good time

My stay was for the International Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses. The location of the Hotel was perfect for my activities. The front desk personnel was very nice. The service was good.

Totally Overpriced

Paid for a King room and only got a double bed. Price was ridiculous due to an event in Melbourne... Only paid out of desperation would never stay there again.

Not good value for money

For $550 a night I expected better. The room itself is smaller than most in Melbourne CBD and was in some what disrepair. air-conditioning didn't keep room at constant temp, no remote and similar. On the plus side location is very close to trains, trams and China town.

Not a good experience

On arrival no record of booking, room badly in need of restoration, noise of the lift motors was very annoying, plumbing was shocking, when using the shower more air came out than hot water making the temperature impossible to maintain, extra for parking and breakfast. A rotten deal!

Disappointing this time

We were disappointed this time, car park couldn't take our vehicle had to walk almost a km from car park where we were able to park, bathroom had mildew, bed too hot had not option of bedding, no concierge for info, restaurant overpriced. We have stayed here before but next time we will have to think about some where else. Shame because this hotel has got a good location.

Great location, parking and breakfast

Fantastic breakfast, location was perfect, room is a good size and comfortable, but found the bathroom very small with little room to sit anything. Overall very happy and would stay again.
