My daughter paid for my husband and I too stay here. They did not mention too her (my daughter) that there was a bond to be paid on arrival. We turn up to the hotel, the receptionist man asks us for a $30 bond, I only have a $50 note on me so I give that too him & no... More

Stayed there is Feb 2015, central to everything and nice staff. Best price for the room and walking distance to central Melbourne. Great Place will be back, clean neat and cosy. The double room we had was spacious and well prepared. No worries with this Hotel. Nice

The hotel is pretty good. Not a lot special about it. But comfortable enough to get a good nights sleep and fairly quiet, unless your neighbours have a late night. It's in a great location, easy to get anywhere within the CBD. Would probably book again if the price is good. Hope it helps.

This hotel looks better in the pics online (as they all do!). Great location, close to shops, bars, cafes restaurants - everything really!! Chinatown is a short stroll down the road. I stayed in a studio room which was nicely adequate. The room was self contained with a two plate cooktop, kitchen sink, small bar fridge and of course plates... More

This little hotel is situated right in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, with a convenience store just across the lane from its doorsteps, and minutes away from Melbourne Central (train station), Emporium, Bourke Street Mall ...etc. The hotel is a bit outdated, but the bathrooms have been done up, and the beds are comfortable enough for if you just...

Great location but it stops there. Rooms are small and need a refit and a good clean up. Small TVs and a lot of street noise. In saying that the bed was quite comfortable. No parking and a walk to a nearby car parking station which is quite an expensive extra.

The real selling point of this hotel is it's location. Right in the middle of Melbourne CBD, all you need is within walking distance. Our room backed onto the rear of the restaurants in a nearby lane, and my only critical point of this hotel would be that, due to the windows being only single glazed, there was a lot... More

This room was my worst nightmare. Filthy dirty putred smelly little presents left by mice. The smell made you fell sick. First time I have ever checked bed for rodents and stains. Booked 2 nites. If could have got another room for first night would have. Booked out at 7 am next morning. About 3 hrs sleep.
