The hotel is centrally located . Thats the only good thing about it . The rooms are extremely tiny and feel suffocating . The wash room is a tiny cubicle . Its super expensive and not worthy of the cost at all . There are plenty other options in this price range .

Great place to stay, very clean and tidy, comfortable bed, great shower and good WiFi. Walking distance to southern cross, Flinders station, South bank and the convention centre. Highly recommended would definitely stay here again.

Awesome location, just a brief tram ride to where ever you want to go in the city. Rooms are small but very clean and cozy. The hotels decor is very hip and modern. All around aesthetically pleasing. Really friendly, helpful (and attractive) staff. Wifi is pretty crap even if you purchase the premium option. It's tolerable if you're patient.

Hotel is in an amazing location, considering how busy the area is,traffic, people,pubs, music none of this invaded our room. Check in was quick. The Staff were warm helpful and went the extra mile, and are a credit to the employers and them self. Mmm the room was a shoe box, we kept falling over each other, (to small for... More

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
