Stayed here for 4 nights with some friends. Absolutley filthy! The 'double bed' is literally two single beds pushed together! Hotel advertises a gym however there isnt one. Well priced but very dirty. Grime absolutley everywhere! Not again.

Nova is always my first point of call for accommodation in Melbourne. I've stayed here overnight for business, but also for pleasure. It's not luxurious by any means, but it does the job. On my last stay I was in a level 2 apartment with a huge courtyard, unfortunatley it was filthy as people upstairs would just drop rubbish, flick... More

We stayed here during the Easter week which is peak period in Melbourne. Its location right next to Victoria Market, within walking distance to Chinatown and shopping places in CBD makes this apartment an ideal place to stay in. There are 5 of us and we booked the 2 bedroom superior room (added an additional bed in the living hall).... More

Definitely not 4 star - resembles a backpackers which incidentally, there is a noisy one across the road (who kept me up all night). The bed was extremely uncomfortable - huge dip in the middle and hard and lumpy. We stayed in Room 205 which had a thick layer of dust around the windowsill next to the bed. There was... More

I would certainly return to this hotel but only in winter. Why would you, you ask? The one off putting aspect of this hotel was they had blinds and not curtains so at 4.30-5am every morning the sun came through and bounced off the wardrobe mirror lighting up the room in a blaze of yellow light! When I'm on holiday... More

I checked out first thing in the morning after only having spent one night despite having a longer booking, and checked into another hotel. The room was small which was fine but the bed was two singles put together, it had no sheet and was so hard and lumpy I barely slept. My neighbours partied until 0430 slamming doors and... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Luckily we were out most of the time. Bed was two singles pushed together but we were pleased with that considering we were supposed to have a double. Cooking facilities are basic but adequate for a short stay. (Not that we acually cooked anything) The view from our apartment on the third floor was rather bleak,... More

This hotel has a good location...within easy walking distance of the town centre and transport. The room was on the small side, but clean and adequate for a short stay. The rates were reasonable and the staff friendly.
