The hotel is conveniently located on the northern outskirts of the CBD very close to trams and a walk to North Melbourne shops and Queen Victoria Markets. This is a 1950s/60s style building that has been refurbished a while ago. Hallways to rooms are a bit of a maze, but my room was large, clean and welcoming. I was a... More

Spent one night here, on a brief city trip. We had booked a triple but they upgraded us to a double twin without asking. The room was more than adequate and clean. Friendly reception staff. Car park within the premises for an extra fee. Will gladly stay here again,

This is the worst hotel I have stayed at in Melbourne. The floor in the room was so stained as were the walls, the shower was filthy and stained and had black long hairs all over the bathroom. When we asked a question of the receptionist she was very unhelpful and had little knowledge of the local area. I actually... More

On the other hand we have commenced renovations to all rooms and bathrooms, which will give the hotel and totally new look. We do hope you... More

I stay here due to business nearby every couple of months. The reception staff are friendly and efficient especially Jess. The wait staff are pleasant and extremely professional especially Anita who always remembers a name and order and I have often heard her engage with customers especially families of children visiting the nearby hospital. The rooms are clean but dated... More

Check in took a while, but reception staff were very welcoming. The car park is great, but had nowhere near enough spots for the number of people wanting it, so I suggest you get in early and leave your car if you can. The room was large, the bed comfortable and the hotel was generally quiet; we had a good... More

A friend and I had some business to attend to in Parkville so required a hotel within walking distance to the zoo. We came across this place and I thought that $190 for a quiet room with two queen size beds was very reasonable. The rooms were nothing special but the beds were comfortable, the bathroom clean and the check-in... More

I was checking out the room for a friend of mine when I saw a French receptionist. She was busy chatting to a maintenance guy and ignoring us. I asked the room rates. She did not seem to care and show any Accor hospitality! The answers were quick and lacking information. She should be somewhere else. Come on! We booked... More

During an obviously extremely busy time in Melbourne the rates of the CBD hotels were exorbitant so we took this hotel at $A190 a night (room only). An inflated rate that did not match the quality. What I discovered on arrival was a dirty, no filthy, room in a poorly maintained building. Starting with my room. The windows were so... More
