2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I should have known what was ahead when asked at checkin for a $100 deposit. No one likes to be assumed a thief or a vandal, but I guess they've had some bad experiences - it's that sort of place. Though I don't know what they thought we'd steal: there were no bath robes, not even a soap holder &... More

Just around the corner from Federation Square, this was the perfect location for our stay to attend the MWF. Beds were comfortable, the room was quite, the service was great, all at a very good price. Conveniently, the baguette place next door does great breakfast on the run treats and the baguettes are good too. I'll definitely be back.

Great place to stay, so handy to Rod Laver arena and other attractions. We were made very welcome and given handy tips. My only slight problem was the pillows on the bed were extremely soft, even with the 2 pillows they were very uncomfortable. Overall a great overnight stay.

This hotel is a great place to stay if you need comfortable, clean accommodation in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, and are operating on a limited budget. We found the room in good order (notwithstanding a slight mixup in the bedding config which was quickly sorted by our desk clerk). For basic (3.5 star) rooms they did the job... More

For the standard rooms, expect a 3.5 star room and you wont be disappointed. they are refurbishing their rooms but in my opinion this... More
