Adequate, comfortable, clean accommodation with just enough space for 3 single beds for 3 travellers. There's a good little kitchenette but you must go to reception to purchase minibar items. Take all your bathroom items as there was only one little shampoo & conditioner between 3 of us however there was a good hairdryer, iron and ironing board. Finding the... More

One night stay. Room was available for early check in. Deryk was polite and helpful. Room clean, quiet and comfortable. Bed is great not too hard or soft. Bathroom clean with decent size shower. Heating works well and the room feels cosy warm. Mini bar prices over the top. $5 for a mars bar, $5.50 for a small packet m&ms.... More

Location - great location to Southern Cross and a good decent/scenic walk to Southbank etc. Room was clean and the amenities were good (which included a microwave and cutlery etc.) Although the room wasn't huge, there was plenty enough space to place our luggage without tripping over as well as a lounge chair to sit on. We weren't sure what... More

Wasn't sure about the location of this hotel initially, but turns out its brilliant. Tucked behind Southern cross station made it so convenient to walk up the steps next to the hotel to the cross over to Etihad stadium or go down the end of Aurora lane, 100 metres and pick up the free City Circle Tram.

Went there for business as customer is @ Docklands. Good value for money, practical room, great buffet breakfast. A nice stay if you area of interest is Docklands, otherwise you need to walk a bit, especially considering that Docklands is completely dead at night.

Location was great. Walkable distance to the Southern Cross Station. In fact I walked to the city too - bit far but definitely achievable on foot. Stayed multiple times. Rooms were clean. Rates were reasonable. Just didn't like the expensive parking.

The Google location map on the hotel website was of no use - Aurora Lane is under Collins Street. And travellers always have luggage - how were we expected to get down whatever stairs? We arrived at Southern Cross Station and there was no signposting to the hotel. We finally found our way via a construction site in the dark... More
