Great location. My wife and I spent a week there. The room was small but had everything we required. The bed was ok but a bit hard. There were just some very annoying things that should not have happened at all if management and staff were switched on. The TV in our room was broken. They replaced it with another... More

Stayed here with two teenage boys for five nights. For the price it was absolutely fine. Great location, clean. Not a lot of room in bedrooms for storage, bed against walls and Wifi is an extra charge (not part of hotel charge). Would stay here again though as it was a great price for location and we could use kitchen... More

I wasn't expecting top quality rooms or anything, because for the price your paying for the location, but i just have some things that i need to pick on.. For the total of 6 nights my sheets were only changed once and they made me bed only 3 times even though they changed the towels. The floor was dirty, i... More

Overall a below average stay for me but its still ok as I stayed for one night only. The air conditioner was spoilt and even after contacting the staff they mentioned nothing they can do. We just open the window as its 10 deg outside. Room was kinda rundown and of basic standard. It is reasonably clean except the carpet... More

Small studio with a mini kitchenette (microwave, tea & coffee facilites etc) and private bathroom.

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
