After reading a lots of reviews on the website, I quite scared to book any hotels. But when I think about my pregnancy, the location is the main key for where would I'll be stay.

the only good thing about this hotel is the location, the four star rating must be down graded to 3 star. The staff are the most unhelpful people, they booked us into the wrong room and we had to carry our luggage from floor to floor as they corrected thier mistake. Horrible service for the money spent.

Nice room, everything to expectations, small but well equipped gym and nice steam room. Only cons: windows don't open, internet expensive at A$2 for 15 mins to A$20 a day.

The hotel is in a great location in the centre of Melbourne, ideal for the casual visitor. Easy walking distance from trams, cafes, shops and attractions such as Federation Square and ACMI. The staff were friendly and professional; the room was small but well appointed and very clean. Admittedly, the included continental breakfast was a little dull but there was... More

The hotel is located on an alley off the busy main street... but the "alley" is really this lovely strip of energetic cafes that makes you feel like you are in Europe (though it seems a lot don't open on Saturdays... seems dead then). Regardless, Little Collins is an excellent central location in... More

I have to say I agree with many of the comments made by hotelinspector60 including how the reception was cold and miserable, more to the point though it offered the feeling you would expect somewhat from a backpackers facility. The breakfast area/ restaurant was downstairs offering a poor ambiance and the distinct feeling that you were definitely in a backpackers... More
