First of all, the location is excellent. And as long as your not a light sleeper, you should get through the noise ok - Friday night was particularly noisy, Saturday night less so, but do remember you are in the middle of a late night eating and entertainment part of a major city. The rooms are basic - we stayed... More

A little secret garden in Melbourne, in the middle of Melbourne CBD, was perfect, the cost of the place is responsible and the room and just what I expected, neat clean and retro 1970. You are in walking distance to everywhere in Melbourne. We walked to the arena and all over Chinatown and the arts distract, just perfect.

The location is excellent, right in middle of Melbourne City Centre and is very reasonable cost. Everything in Melbourne centre is within walking distance. Room is small but very well designed. Very comfortable bed, desk, eating table, well stocked kitchenette. Wooden and tiled floors and very clean bathroom. Staff very friendly and helpful. Many restaurants just around the corner, EzyMart... More

This hotel has prime location in the city, and for the price nicely appointed. That said however the street noise was so intense my wife and I forwent our 2nd nights booking just to get some sleep. My wife and I arrived to find a small room with what appeared to be 1950's wall to wall window, as thin as... More

Stayed here in a room with two double beds. I'd been informed of the noise problems and it is noisy, we stayed on the 4th floor and a recycle truck came by one morning and woke us all. The windows open and are not double glazed which is really necessary here as it is the middle of the city. But... More

I chooses this hotel total based on its location and price by ignoring many negative points from reviews. I stayed in the 2 Bedroom Family Apartment; the size was gigantic 100 square meter! 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a kitchen, a huge living room and a terrace. This room type is located off the hotel main building (thus, no wifi here).... More

We had a room on the 5th floor. It was clean, quiet and exactly what we expected. The room appeared to have a new bathroom and new kitchen sink. It had 2 hot plates, small fridge and some basic cooking utensils. There was no microwave, toaster or other features so if you are after a studio apartment and plan to... More
