Excellent location rooms are clean and tidy, staff are pleasant, breakfast ok, great place to stay during off peak times, during peak times everything turns pear shaped be prepared to wait in line for twenty minutes for breakfast.

Stayed here post MCG football for one night. Despite other reviews, I found the staff friendly and welcoming. The rooms, at least mine was, are basic and small, but the bed was comfortable and everything was clean. Car Parking was included in my "package" but is normally $10 per night. Dined here only for breakfast, which is a basic buffet,... More

Have stayed here 6 times mostly for the location. Rooms are small, but clean for an old hotel, it's its not too bad. . Breakfast is always good value. Staff are not particularly friendly. Loads of great eateries in walking distance. As I said, the location is great.

This Hotel was chosen by my employer for an overnight business trip. First impression.......steps........lots of them, just to get to the door. On a rainy Melbourne day, they are also slippery, no assistance. There was no clear sign to direct guests to a ramp or disability entrance....in fact, I did not see a ramp at any point during my stay.... More

Terrible. Worst customer service. Trying to find out information was like beating a dead animal. Not clean. Hole in the wall. Housekeeping ignored my wishes to be "undisturbed" Highly recommend you choose elsewhere.

Recently travelled to Melbourne with husband and daughter for AFL. This hotel represents great value for money. Service was outstanding, Shannon in reception and the 2 young waitresses at breakfast were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Hotel was within walking distance to everything we needed, food, shopping and sport. Many tourist attractions also nearby. Staff had sound knowledge... More

My wife and I were in Melbourne recently and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It is very close to Lygon Street and Carlton Gardens. Our room was fine, clean and the bathroom was particularly good. A really good shower. We had a breakfast package. Food quite good. Get there early if you can. Staff are very friendly and... More

This hotel was in a great location and check in and check out was fast and easy. The room was generally comfortable, however the bathroom floor was quite sticky and had obviously not been cleaned properly for a while. There were also no biscuits provided with the tea/coffee.

The hotel was clean and a room space was adequate. The thing that makes this hotel stand out is a great location with easy access to Lygon street and the CBD. The price was very reasonable for this area.

We chose to stay here due to location, as we were attending the comedy festival at Trades Hall. Upon arrival the room was very clean, small, but very clean. Staff were friendly, we only saw one. It's disappointing that the bar is only open Sunday nights - yes Lygon Street is a stone throw away but sometimes a drink in... More
