Hotel is small but welcoming. Quick check in up to our room. It was a bit smaller than I thought but was good for what we needed. Bathroom door wouldnt close completely and being in such a small room was a little embarrassing with my friend staying the in the same room. I was impressed that there was no outside... More

I only stayed her for one night on Easter Monday 2015 as I was in town for a family funeral. Really just needed a place to lay my head at night. Was met by a very pleasant and very professional tall woman at the desk who was able to check me in an hour before the official time. After flying... More

Again we had an early flight in to Melbourne and when we reached the hotel we were told no check in before 2 pm. After waiting for a while the manager saw us sitting around in the lobby,made special efforts to get us a room asap (I even remember she was personally helping the housekeeping to hurry it up) now...

While the rooms are very small they are more than adequate for most people, after all it's a place to sleep and shower. On that note I think it was the most comfortable bedding I have experienced and the enormous shower head delivered abundant hot water. The rooms were spotless and supplied with coffee and tea facilities, Wifi, and toiletries.... More

From outside it looks like a tiny little Hotel, but wait until you get inside (I got lost the first day looking for my room). The rooms are new and have everything you might need. The staff is very nice and the Location is excellent. To resume: I enjoyed my stay at this Hotel, and if I go back to... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in one of the court yard rooms. While the room was clean, tidy and comfortable it did have it's downfalls. Every time people in the room next door had a shower this would wake you up as the water pipes must have been right behind the bed, it was unbearably loud especially when someone... More

I booked this hotel at short notice on a mystery hotel deal. The price was about a third the price of other hotels as I was booking the night before the cricket world cup final (I wasn't going). It was listed as a 3.5 star hotel and it was as good if not better than many 4 star hotels in... More

We stayed overnight on a Friday night instead of the mad dash home to change before a concert at the arts centre. Check in was a breeze, including a complimentary upgrade to a courtyard room. Well worth considering this room type when booking as its is worth it. Great aircoditonn, compact but well thought out bathroo and. Nice courtyard, great... More

We booked this room as an opaque booking on Hotwire and were pretty certain that this would be the property we would receive. First off, the Hotwire rate was insanely attractive for Melbourne and that should be noted up front since it sways our review. This hotel is very well located about two blocks from the Southern Cross train station,... More
