Great little kitchenette . Someone always on the desk. Easy walk to everywhere. Some unnecessary dated furniture...just took up space. The lift seemed a bit rattled but worked fine. Coffee close by, shopping close by. A bit enclosed, brick wall views from windows.

The hotel is in a great CBD location, but the rooms are dark and gloomy with majority of them without windows to the street. My room had a window into a gloomy, unused courtyard which looked more like a fire-escape. The window had a large NO SMOKING sticker on it, but there were still people smoking in the morning. It...

A little disappointed by our room. It was small (although did have a handy kitchenette) and outdated. There were dirty marks on the wall, and the TV was tiny (my computer monitor is bigger). The location was good though, very close to a lively line which had a few good cafes nearby. Probably wouldn't stay here again, as there are... More

This centrally located hotel, was poor value for money. Clean and basic, however noisy and absolutely no frills. Rooms were depressing and scuffed. TV screen was a 30cm poor connection high on the wall.

Stayed on a recent trip to Melbourne, this is a very central hotel. Basic with few trimmings but was clean, quite and convenient. I would stay again for the location. The price was reasonable. Would rate it as 3 star.

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.
