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.

Located at central melbourne along spencer street has nice budget room at good reasonable price. The tram stop is just outside the hotel and is about 200 metres from the crown casino. It is centrally located near the spenser street train station

Although small, yet it is neat and clean. The location is very convenient, near the southern cross station (easy access to airport by skybus) and several tram stops nearby. Convention center, aquarium, and south wharf promenade (and DFO) are within walking distance. The staffs are nice and helpful.

Was attending a conference and stayed here for 5 nights in the petite room. Location excellent. Facilitates were above what I was expecting for the price. Staff were friendly and helpful. Their restaurant downstairs did reasonable food for a good price. I was very very happy with staying here and would recommend!

Stayed for three nights on business recently. Everything good, squeaky clean, nice bed etc. My small double was perfect for one, even for two people would be fine. A big person would struggle with the petite shower door opening. Used the restaurant twice for dinner, little Irish girl was lovely. Several other restaurants nearby. Also plenty of hotels in the...

First time staying at this hotel in Spencer Street. Great location. Very handy to Southern Cross Station for skybus terminal, Etihad Stadium for footy, Flinders Street for trams. I had a standard double room on 1st floor (like walking through a maze each time to find my room). Room is small. Bed takes up most of it. Bed very comfy.... More

I recently spent one night in a twin room and while I was prepared for the small size ( after reading reviews), I was pleasantly surprised by how compact it was with plently of cupboard and storage space. The room was comfortable, the decor modern and the staff helpful and friendly. The perfect base for a weekend stay.
