Stayed during a boys trip to watch the footy and it was everything we needed. Rooms were a little small but clean, fair value and staff were excellent. Nice roof top bar but no toilet nearby so if you want to have a quiet beer on the roof you need to go back to your room to use the toilet.... More

The rooms were small ( only suitable for one person) but clean, functional and attractive. I stayed in a back room which had windows that opened, a colleague was in a front room which had... More

Quite ok hotel, small but really comfortable! A place I most certainly will return to if the cash will flow in. Furthermore, it was quite possible to negotiate a "flat rate" for wifi for the entire stay....

Very happy with our decision to stay here, paid a reasonable price online, check in was smooth and fast, room was small, but very tidy and modern with everything you need. They have a nice restaurant downstairs and the location is very convenient. No complaints, will definitely stay here again!

I stayed in the city for a conference last year. This hotel was a great price, wonderfully set up and breakfast downstairs was yummy. Comfy beds, decent size bathroom and very clean. Walking distance to Crown and the Melbourne convention centre.
