They say you get what you pay for...well....not with this place! I wish I'd read reviews before, hence why Im writing one! I stayed there for the weekend. It is very tired, in need of cleaning, painting and general tlc. The bathroom is tiny & very dated. The hot water system, as we were told by reception is a 50L... More

I stayed last weekend and was impressed by value for money. It is clean and comfortable. Just a few minutes walk to the MCG, a tram stop and the railway station. Parking was a bit tight but manageable. If you like a long shower then it is likely that the hot water will run out but it only takes about... More

Excellent help from staff. Allowed early bag drop & check in due to early morning flight arrival. Clean, comfortable & close to all amenities. Good quality budget accommodation. Only negative was Melbourne’s weather.

At first glance, this apartment block seems very run down and tired, but for such a good rate, it's actually excellent value for money. By ringing the hotel and booking our stay, we got a nightly rate of $90, which is fantastic for a hotel so close to the centre of Melbourne. The tram stop is at the end of... More

We stayed for 3 nights over a weekend. overall the apartments are excellent good value, and close to everything, ie. 50 m to tram stop &7/11 and 500mn from MCG. The rooms are clean if a bit tired looking, the bed comfy, new towels daily, the staff very friendly, what more could you ask for in a budget motel. We'll... More

Location : handy, convenient. Building : needs attention (floor, walls). Rooms : draughty. Bedding : hard mattresses,although not uncomfortable. Bathroom : some rooms with combination of shower and tub,better get one with shower cubicle only. Appliances : old. Service : first concierge(male),very good. Second one(female),bad. Room service : on the poor side. Parking : narrow entrance to parking spaces.

Firstly, I think people giving one star have overreacted. I think this place exceeded my expectations after reading the reviews on here. For $98 a night and considering the location, it's a bargain. I was able to combine a footy game at the MCG and a few visits to my dad who was in the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute. MCG... More
