Reception was unattended upon arrival - no bell to alert the staff, so had to call them to meet me. The man who came to greet me was pleasant enough. Free undercover car parking was a bonus. Was given keys to room 112, and was quite displeased at the stale, musty odour when I entered. Opened the large window to... More

Do not stay in the 'spa suite' if you were expecting to find anything like the pictures. As per the other reviews, that is not a picture of the room and instead you will get a dark, dingy tiny room with a bathtub stuffed in the corner. Also a very noisy hotel from noises from other rooms. Do not stay... More

Although it is in close vicinity to Melbourne city and reasonably clean and tidy service was extremely poor. When I arrived I found the customer service to be rude and unhelpful the general tone was condescending and again plain Rude. Not all staff were rude in fact there were some lovely staff, but unfortunately the experience I encountered left me... More

It's good for the price, specially when you have to book in short notice. Although addition of a staff to handle the luggage shouldn't be that expensive an addition. However would probably return here in similar circumstances.

This is a central hotel at a budget on Kingsway about 1 klm south of crown casino. On site free parking and clean basic rooms. Ok for an overnight stay. Rooms are airconditioned with windows that do not open . Note Kingsway is a busy road, so if road noise is a concern, ask for a quiet room not facing... More

City Park hotel is semi-convenient location. Not easily walking distance to CBD but there are trams. We required a room with Disability facilities for our Nanna in wheelchair. The wheelchair wouldn't even fit a metre past the door and shower in bathroom had a step up. Although room was clean and neat - our friends room next door was very... More
