Booked a two rm apt at $170 a night and found the size and condition comfortable and of a good standard. Walked to the MCG and back along with museum and markets nearby. Had no issues with noise or cleanliness and security good, would stay again.

My 2 children and I stayed here for 2 nights 17th April and 18th April. Room 329 We have stayed before, but in a different style of room. This one was a 2 bedroom apartment. Upon opening the door, the first thing that hit me was the smell (musty/toilety smell) then I noticed the bench had some big chips taken... More

Hi we stayed here for an overnight stay and as per the other reviews this Hotel is average. It resembles more of a hostel type environment but the location is excellent which was a bonus Try to ask for a room away from the lifts as it was extremely noisy with students coming and going

As soon as I entered the room there was a terrible smell, the carpet was stained and smelly and the bathroom, especially the shower were filthy. Not at all relaxing because of the lack of cleanliness. Don't even bother!!!

Very central location to Carlton, Queen Vic Markets and easy access to Trams. I spent 3 nights in a 2 bed standard apartment at a very affordable price. One room had two singles together and the other bedroom had a single bed. Plenty of cupboard space in both rooms. Kitchen was functional and clean and the living area was a... More

Stayed here for a night, room looked semi decent until I found the left side of the bed sheet stained with cigarette ash from top to bottom - there were disgusting black streaks of the stuff. Informed the lady at reception who did not have a very good attitude, she couldn't care less. Check in was alright and speedy. Found... More

This accommodation is cheap and therefore you get what you pay for.The size of the apartment was decent enough for as we only used it really to sleep. Central location just behind Queen Vic market and you can walk in town just 20 min.

This was the worst serviced apartment we stayed in. The bedrooms are tiny, kitchen is small and poorly equipped, air-con was noisy, balcony full of cigaret buts, the garage is filthy with rubbish smell everywhere. The only positive is a great location.

Reading other reviews i was a bit unsure in staying here but our room was more then fine! Myself and 2 other friends stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment for a weekend. The balcony was tiny but the rest of the apartment was tidy, clean and could check out later at 11am free of charge which was handy. The size... More

Not new but consistent accommodation, better than "just a room" Cook top & fridge,makes it self serve living. Clean & tidy air-conditioned but older style. Staff are helpful. We regularly stay there when visiting Melbourne. Not near the casino or M.C.G. but could easily get there. It's Melbourne..
