The hotel is in the perfect location. The rooms were large, modern and clean. All staff were very friendly and parking was available nearby. Unfortunately, the noise coming from outside the room was just terrible. We were only able to sleep a few hours each night. We expected some noise being central Melbourne city but the amount was incredible. I... More

Ok. It's not luxurious but the staff are friendly, the beds comfy and our bathroom (while a bit old) was spotless. Yes, the trams rumble by, and yes, you can hear the street buskers -- it's in the dead centre of downtown Melbourne people! Personally, my kids and I loved being a 5 minute walk from everything - restaurants, shopping... More

Stayed here for one night with a friend. Rooms are well equipped, though the furnishings are starting to look tired. The bathroom in particular needs a spruce up as paint is peeling etc. Lights are a bit harsh as they are fluro bulbs. However it was clean, and relatively quiet given it is right on Swanston Street. The staff at... More

I stayed here two nights and enjoyed my stay. The location is the best you are going to get, diagonally opposite Town Hall (the location of my conference). My room was large, clean and very quiet. Toiletries were standard, bathroom good. It is not a place to hang out, with no foyer or other amenities like that, but who needs... More

On the famous busy Swanston street. You will never go hungry. Stayed here because it was walking distance to Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) for Melbourne Marathon. Requested for higher floors and room facing the back. The room was big enough for 2 with luggage consisting a queen size bed & sofa bed. The bath tub might be old & chipping... More

Fantastic city location! Right near Flinders st station. Hidden behind a money exchange place so we did have some trouble finding it! Very safe and secure! Friendly staff. Discount parking close by. Rooms neat and tidy budget accommodation. Bathrooms need an upgrade. The porcelain on the bath was badly chipped off. Need new heaters also- very old. Service was great-... More

When you reach this location, you might not even realise that there is a motel as it is situated right in the heart of Swanston Street, where all the hustle and bustle is. It is situated right in front of the tram stop for Swanston/Collins street. And there's no problem obtaining food as there are lots of fast food joints... More
