This hotel had good reception, comfortable bed and was central. The breakfast was a disappointment -- choice of 3 cereals, no fresh fruit to go on the cereal unless you chopped up an apple -- other fruit choice was canned sliced peaches. The scrambled eggs and bacon didn't look too brilliant and I left untouched the soggy-looking hash browns and... More

Spent 4 nights here . The hotel seems to originally been quite well appointed but suffers from a need for refurbishment. Pluses: Location - right downtown near free tram on Latrobe St.; kitchen facilities; skydeck.; Comfortable bed with good duvets. Minuses: Very noisy location - garbage pickup early morning twice while we were there. ; No coffee maker; Very few... More

Spacious room with modern decor, nice bathroom. All very clean and well presented. Heavy curtains blocked out all light. Could open the windows and let in fresh air. Tram and lots of cafes close by. Short walk to main shops and Chinatown. Enjoyed Laksa around the corner. Loved that Skybus offers drop off and pick up service to the door.

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was great exp. The location, facilities and services are all great! It's near Chinatown, and you can easily found a quite number of good restaurant nearby. There is also an Asian Supermarket not far away from it. Several places of interest are also within walking distance.

My sister and I stayed here for four days over the holidays. Never having stayed here before, very impressed with the room, the inclusions and the outdoor rooftop area. Really central to theatres, we walked everywhere or caught the free city trams. Also close to Lygon St, couldn't fault this place, it had everything, a hidden gem

The room was very reasonably priced at $195 per night including breakfast and wifi. It's a bit tricky to get to down a side street and there's no parking immediately at the hotel, although I managed to get outdoor parking for $10/night just a couple of minutes walk away. The rooms are self contained apartment style with fridge, dishwasher, microwave... More

Great location and pleasant staff but that's it... The kitchenette was to small to be useful. The freezer section of the fridge didn't work. The bed was two single beds pushed together which was very, very uncomfortable and the balcony windows were philthy.

Overnight stay, very convenient location but solo female felt very unsafe walking down dark alley to get to front door, with dumpers and security grilles on street! Beautiful room, great decor, service desk very busy - functional but not overly helpful
