Stayed here to go see the tennis and explore Melbourne. Has great access to trams and trains and also Melbourne park. Staff were friendly and efficient. Room was pretty average. They need to maintain them better! The bed was tiny, not a queen as advertised just a double. Housekeeping also needs some attention. Whilst the bed was made daily and... More

Let's start with the positives. 1. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. 2. Great location. 3. Cheap for Melbourne accomodation. 4. Close to tram stop. Now let's get real. Absolutely by far the worst condition of anything I have stayed in for years. The studio room we were given first had no hot water. It was tiny and seriously+++... More

I found this hotel on Expedia and the reviews looked okay and booked it from that. Let me preface this review with - it is an older apartment building and if you are looking for modern amenities, then you may not want to stay here. But, if you want good price, comfortable and clean accommodation, friendly and courteous staff -... More

On arrival the one receptionist on was great. Beds and pillows were not at all comfortable, sore back and neck on return home. Rooms were shabby, carpet lifting, furniture in poor condition. Bathroom also shabby, bath was metal and rusting. Showerhead needed replacing as water sprayed everywhere, taps could not be turned off to stop dripping. Stairwell outside room very... More

Stayed here after a concert and the position was perfect. So close to public transport and arenas. But it was noisy. We got woken at 6am by the sound of jackhammers that sounded like they were coming from next door. You could hear everything said outside your door. Bed was comfortable and shower adequate. Just take ear plugs for a... More

This apartment is actually for sale. Maybe the reason why Management is not spending so much on refurbishing the place. We stayed in an apartment good for three adults, in the ground floor. Our room was clean enough but ventilation (the aircon) needs to be fixed. There is a small kitchen with old utensils, antique coffee percolator & toaster. The... More

The hotel has been thoroughly renovated since my last visit in 2002. It was a pleasure to return. The room was comfortable and clean. Quiet, too. Conveniently located. Several good restaurants within walking distance. The tram stop is one block away.

Location was fantastic. Price was good. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable bed. Easy access to Melbourne. Unfortunately we find out later when the office was closed that the sheets were not clean (looked like blood stains). And we had no hot water. Nothing like a cold shower in the morning - we found that the switch in the... More

Amazing location, could see MCG from balcony. Everything in room worked. Was not aware reception was closing early but didn't need to as they were nice enough to ring me and check me in over phone. Very happy with stay.
