Hotel was great. Staff that I had dealings with were all helpful with a professional attitude. Close to everything I wanted to look at, with timespan that I had. I'd stay there again next time I'm in Melbourne.

Convenient, pleasant

My friend and I both took separate rooms in this hotel as we both wanted to visit a special exhibition at the NGV. Before making my bookings, I had noted that some reviews indicated that a nightclub was behind the building and that noise was a problem for that reviewer as they had been allocated a room closeby. On check-in I specifically asked for a room away from the noise, as I am a light sleeper. Carlos couldn't have been more accommodating and allocated a room that was quiet. The location was convenient and the room clean. We needed the accommodation purely for sleeping as we had a busy visitors schedule and this hotel meet our needs exactly. Highly recommend the hotel especially for the positive, can do attitude of their staff...in particular Carlos.

Good location

Had a room on the top floor which was very spacious with the biggest wet room I have every had in a hotel anywhere! Unfortunately, the nightclub next door blared out until about 3.30am on the Thursday-Saturday nights I stayed. Earplugs solve the sound, but the bass thumps so much the whole room vibrates! Staff were excellent. Had a problem with the WiFi and the lovely Kiwi guy on the front desk really went out of his way to get it fixed (as it is looked after by an external provider). He even asked me the following day when he saw me if everything was okay, which was great :-)

Disappointing service with noisy room given

We book standard double room from 11 to 17 sep via hotel.com. but when we checkin on 11 sep night, the lady staff on night duty said we have one 4years old daughter and insist we must paid extra AUST $20 per nite for her stay with extra 1 single bed. (Note: we have asked verbally 1 male staff on duty on 8 Sep nite and he said we can just book double room and request upgrade to Queen size bed for free. End up, when I ask for upgarde on 11 Sep, the lady staff insist we paid total extra AUST $100 for 5 nites for our child). We were not given any choice to reject even if we said we don't mind to sleep in 1 double bed with our child (can the management clarify why they have such a unreasonable and rigid rules?#. Then, they gave us a noisy room at 1st floor room 14. When I told him to change to another room which is quieter and not the SAME facing #as we have young child#, the male staff on duty still give us 4th foor 414 with exact SAME facing #cos he said that should not be any noise from any pub nearby, which i i think they know that room facing is noisy is noisy but pretend not to know#. We have to ask him to come to our room personally to listen to the noise #likely from a pub nearby) and then he finally agree to change us to 6th floor room 614 which is next to lift lobby. So, we shift our few heavy luggage thrice just to move to a quieter room at 11 sep at nearly 9pm. To make thing worse, the TV at 414 and 614 got no TV signal and the same male staff had to come and fix the TV twice, goodness. The pillow given are also too flat that we have neck stiffness. Overall, very disappointing service and never offer any customer service recovery, even thought we are staying there for 5 nights, which is quite a long stay.

great location

This hotel is nicely located near the airport shuttle station and easy to get to city center. we got an upgrade when we asked for two beds instead of one king sized, they gave us a room for three contains a queen and a single so we had quite enough space. There is no in room wifi and they charge for internet. The electronic teapot was not working so we couldn't make hot drinks. On weekends it was quite noisy at midnight, could hear the noise outside partying. But overall it is a very nice hotel.
