I stayed here because I got a cheap deal and was pleasantly surprised. Nice apartment, clean, good shower and fresh sheets, air conditioned, kitchen with coffee and milk, fridge, fabulous location close to shops and chinatown. The bed was a bit hard that's all - but a lot of the hotel beds are I find.

I've stayed here a couple of time over the past 3 years and it has always been convenient, comfortable and no hassles. The staff are pleasant and have always been ready to assist with booking airport shuttles, taxis etc. It is great value for money.

Do not be fooled by any photos you see or reviews you read. This place is the greatest hovel I have ever stayed in. It is small, old, rundown & most certainly over priced. I could not get out of there quick enough.

It was a good price value for a short stay. Clean and nice stuff. It was a bit noisy but that is what you get for staying in the CBD. Mattress was a bit worn out. No wifi or breakfast available. Therefore you can have a huge range on restaurants around the corner.

We were in Melbourne for a few days and needed good value accommodation for 2 adults and a teenager. Hotel is centrally located in little burke street, a short walk to practically everything, and had a small, but useful kitchenette. It felt open and spacious due to the large window along one wall to the street, but was still private... More

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

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
