The hotel is close to China town and restaurants. Location is the best aspect of this hotel. No lifts so be prepared to carry luggage up stairs. Rooms are basic but clean. Bathrooms lack windows or ventilation. Rooms open out in a corridor that gets some sunlight. We visited during cricket World Cup and the receptionist was clearly under a... More

Group of 8 stayed during a sporting event. Very slow check in process however really helpful and friendly front staff. Walking distance to China town & about a $12 cab fare to the CBD. Rooms served there purpose. They were clean and comfortable. Location 3/5, value 5/5, rooms 3/5.

Close to all the restaurants you could wish for, a 5 minute walk takes you into the heart of Gouger street eating zone and the food market which is exceptional. Car parking is available at a reasonable cost, though limited. If you get a deal the rooms are OK, but I would not like to pay the full price. The... More

Stayed for 2 nights in November 2014. Room was comfortable, clean and good value for money. Reasonably central to Bus Station and Trams and close to markets and a great range of restaurants.” On the day of departure, we left our bags for safekeeping whilst we had a final few hours in the city centre.

Room was basic, but very clean, good shower, good air con. Was impressed by the quality for price. Staff were friendly with all my interactions with them. Internet access is charged for, but sadly that's not unexpected. The photo of the outside hotel isn't where I stayed, rather it was around the corner a bit.

We got a special offer deal so booked 8 nights here. The studio room was reasonably spacious for a studio with a small kitchenette and sitting area. The outlook from our room was pleasant overlooking the car park and trees. The bathroom was very dated but functional, though a circuit-breaker tripped by one of the four rooms on our circuit...

Room was clean and comfortable with a good air conditioner/heater. Shower was a pleasant surprise compared to many other hotels and motels - the shower head was high enough for a tall person! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only downside was that there are no grocery store or bottle shop close.
