This room was booked using a Mystery Deal with a third party vendor. We took the risk not knowing where the hotel is going to be located. I was pleasantly surprised to get a hotel facing the Yarra River, walking distance to bus and tram and right across is the promenade where shops and array of restaurants are located. So... More

My husband and I were both down here for different work commitments, he in the North end of central Melbourne and I at the convention centre, so it was great. The rooms are very comfortable. We were originally allocated an apartment on the 5th level facing the Flinders st... More

Every staff member we encountered during our stay was friendly & extremely helpful. They all appeared to truly love their jobs & that their main priority was to have happy guests.

This was our first stay in the hotel and we were very impressed. We unexpectedly received an amazing upgrade and loved everything about the hotel. The staff were lovely and helpful, the location was fantastic and the views were amazing. The rooms were clean and comfy. We will definitely be back!

We stayed on 14 floors with a view of the river. We were amazed by the firework displayed. Great location. Easy walk to the city. The staff is frendly. But we have not got two beds as booked. It was too late when we checked in, we didn't request for a change.
