We'd stayed here before as a couple but this time returned with our two adult children thus a 'new' review. Again, have realistic expectations considering what you're paying and your stay will be fine. We had a family room with two singles pushed together to make a queen sized bed and two extra singles for our kids. It was a... More

I booked via a travel agent and asked for a fairly standard hotel which I could sleep in and not much else. When I arrived at about 9:45am I couldn't check in until 2pm so I left my bags with them (they DID NOT charge me for this) I am fine with not checking in until 2 so no points... More

Very close to public transport which is a plus but my room was very cold due to issues with heating. The bathroom was new and very clean. While the bed was comfy, one of my pillowcases was dirty and had marks/stains all over it, and the curtains were also stained and had marks on them. The walls had scuff marks... More

The location is good but the hotel itself seemed pretty old. Room was ok, pretty small but the bathroom was new. We had problems with the heating so it was always cold in the room. View was nonexistent but that was ok. Hotel was a construction site during our stay and it was dirty and loud all the time. If... More

You get what you pay for here. Cheap room was small but was clean, modern and had all amenities. Not suitable for a long term stay but fine for overnight stays and long weekends. Very close to transport options. Only main complaint was the messy tradesmen constantly in and out of the building. Understand maintenance is needed but they were... More

I stayed over the weekend. I partly choose the hotel because the location is excellent - very close to the station with trams close by going in every direction which are free if you use them in the city centre. So it was very handy for getting around. I also stayed because it was cheapish. The room I had was... More

I stayed with my family in their family room for 2 nights. The beds were decent, the room was clean. It is a very no-frills hotel (you need to pay for wifi and luggage storage!) but it has an excellent location, right across the Southern Cross station, and near to many eating options and cafes. Would highly recommend this property... More

I had a superior double room which was fairly large, clean, had a very comfortable bed and a great bathroom. It had a large bath which was good to stretch out in, something you hardly find these days. The heating control was easy to use and the staff were friendly and efficient. I used the bag storage facility until check... More

Got this double room online for $69 for the night. Room was surprisingly good for the price. Comfortable bed, good use of space in the bathroom, nice high flow shower. Room is small but contains desk, desk chair, TV, bar fridge, wardrobe, and decent sized safe. Not a lot of spare room and no view (in fact windows are frosted)... More
