Fantastic place to stay. Very modern and still feels brand new. Front desk staff are all very lovely and helpful. Given an upgrade on arrival and the room was ready so early, the accommodated to our every need and we even got on a high floor with a great view. Tram station right out the front, couldn't ask for anything... More

We booked 4 studio rooms for a weekend stay in May. The rooms were clean and larger than what we expected. The only downside is in our room I didn't like that the bed was basically in the kitchen but that didn't bother us too much. The view was lovely, we had half park/city view. We walked to docklands and... More

Stayed for 03 nights for MotoGP 2014 with my partner. Took the airport express shuttle bus(Skybus) to the city area & dropped off Southern Cross Station. Had a choice to walk to the hotel(roughly about 15 mind walk) but decided to hop on the Free Tram Zone(eventhough it took us kinda one round till it stop nearby the hotel). Room... More

I booked the Rooms so I could attend training in Melbourne. It was a very convenient location being on the corner of William and Latrobe Street with easy access to Tram, Train, the gardens and easy walk to the Docklands. Room was of a standard you would expect with a good kitchenette fit-out and suitable parking (if a bit tight)

We stayed for 3 nights over last winter and the place was great, neat and clean and had a nice view overlooking the park (although it was too cold to use the balcony). There is a cute little cafe next door to grab breakfast too. Personally, next time we would probably try and choose somewhere slightly closer to the CBD... More

I actually loved this hotel! We usually end up staying more central or closer to the Flinders St side of the CBD... But I don't know why! This place was great, super clean and the rooms were really nice / comfortable. The trams to Southern Cross Station, down to Flinders St, and to Exhibition St / Spring St (past Melbourne... More

We were well pleased with our modern 17th floor apartment, especially the views from our balcony. Reception service good, nice quality breakfast/lunch cafe next door. City park opposite hotel, free city tram service under 5 minutes walk away. Plenty of shopping and things-to-do close to the hotel or free tram. Pick-ups 2 minutes down the road for day trips out.

Clean spacious rooms, quiet, well appointed. Friendly staff and a great location. Easy access to the free City tram, that said all trams are now free in the CBD so free transport makes the location even better. Plenty of options for meals.

Short walk from Southern Cross Train Station, very comfortable bed, did not want to get up the next day :). The only downside was having to have the curtain closed the whole time as my room faced an office building. A light curtain that would let in natural light would be great.
