3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our family of three adults booked for 3 nights. Our room was ready when we arrived, with the bed for the 3rdperson made up, and extra towels provided. There was a note informing us that plumbing renovations were underway and to be cautious as water temperature could fluctuate. The water flow was just a dribble, and changed from hot to... More

The location of this hotel is perfect. Close walking distance to many of the theatres, and close to trams which are a great free service around the city. Lovely walking distance to the restaurants i Lygon Street as well. The desk staff were very helpful with directions, and always seemed to be smiling. The room was a nice size, and... More

I thought the standard of the rooms was excellent for the price and location. It's in a great spot - close to Emporium, QV, China town and lots of other yummy restaurants. The service was friendly and the rooms were clean and of reasonable size. The breakfast buffet was good too!

This was our second stay within 8 months. Hotel is a central location and an easy walk to many attractions. Room was clean and quiet. Nice to have king size bed. All staff we met were friendly. Parking available under hotel for a reasonable price. Will look at staying again next time we are in the city.

The room was clean and tidy, most of the staff were very friendly. Highly over priced to the point that room service delivery is $5 and getting a drink delivered at the same time by the same person will cost you an extra $5. What they are asking, price wise, is certainly not worth it. 1.5% surcharge when paying with... More

I'd like to preface this by saying I do not give bad reviews for fun, most hotels experiences I've had have been lovely- check out my reviews. The room was clean and tidy with a nice view. However. After dinner (it wasn't late, around 9) we went up to the roof to find people having intercourse in the pool. Even... More

Great location, second time we stayed in this recently refurbished hotel, close to CBD and decent restaurants. Lovely service by reception staff, good security and very nice and clean rooftop pool, could do with a few more sun lounges.

You'll enjoy this place if your expectations are not too high. It's not luxurious - but clean and tidy. Good location close to restaurants and shops (and walking distance to mcg - the reason for our visit). Powerful shower in bathroom. Nice sitting area in addition to beds (we had twin room - plenty of space). Few teething problems on... More

We stayed as a couple with 3 teenagers. It was a transit stop and the location was the deciding factor. Having piles of luggage and no transport so the place was in a great location to access the train station and was very close to Lygons 'alfresco strip'.

Paid $290 for one night. Stayed on the 17 level, balcony was flooded from aircon outdoor units. The shower was over about a four foot bath tub and only dribbled water on you which left you cold in a hot shower. $14.99 for an in-house movie! We had no power apart from ceiling lights for over three hours the next... More
