If you looking for very affordable clean basic amenities within walking distance to most of melbourne attractions, then you've found it! Don't think you're booking a luxurious spacious apartment as you won't get it here, it could do with a refurbishment, having said that the price is fantastic and as a family we would stay here again.

Great location, super close to Victoria Markets, and right in the CBD These rooms are cheap for a reason, they are basic in the amenities and quality of the amenities provided. Still the room was clean, fresh towels daily. Can't fault the service Will charge a service fee if you don't do your dishes. Currently a bit loud in the... More

We spent six nights at this hotel the pricing was excellent the location brilliant, walking distance to shops, restaurants and Etihad stadium. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negative really is that the hotel could do with a refurbishment it was looking a bit tired and old in some areas. While I was fairly satisfied with the... More

Its average and what you expect for the price. Clean. Could do with some more cooking bits and pieces and cutlery, bowls etc. Being so close to the markets you can get so much great fresh produce to bring back to your room to cook. It was clean and tidy. Staff were pleasant and helpful. I would recommend but don't... More

quite good if not looking for luxury. Great location right near the markets. Clean and comfortable. Suitable for families (2 b/r apt) with kitchenette. Great chinese restaraunt downstairs as well. Stayed here a few times now--great value for money if your not looking for the luxuries. Has a small balcony for smokers.

Stayed here on a family trip in the school holidays, location is good. But the room was very dirty, mould on all the windows, hair on the ceiling in bathroom. Very loud at night. Won't be staying again.

I stay here regularly when visiting Victoria Markets, it is so close and convenient. I must say though that it is starting to get rather shabby and due for refurbishment. The receptionists are nice and welcoming, we paid an extra $20 to park the car at the back, the car spots are extremely tight so beware if you have a... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times. I prefer the basic studio apartment because for around $100/night you get excellent value for money. The room is clean and relatively quiet especially if you are on one of the higher floors. It is an excellent place to stay for work and I have even stayed here for weekends away. The... More

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
