Stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath apartment for 10 days on holiday as family of four. Plenty of space and with cooking facilities and a good sized fridge. 2 Tvs with pay tv and free wifi which was reasonably speedy and handled all four of us on it at once. The apartment was clean and serviced daily. The Hotel... More

This hotel is really close to Southern Cross so easy to get to/ from Airport- but about 15 minutes walk from the main Bourke St shopping area. Clean, comfortable room and friendly service (front of house and housekeeping, when we had issues with the soap dispenser in the bathroom), but bathroom seemed dated. Pleasant place to stay for a weekend.... More

All in all the room was fine, but if you are looking for something modern than this may not be the place for you. I travelled with a colleague and we booked a two bedroom apartment. The room itself was clean, the bathroom was fine but the place was a little tried. Not that we spent much time in it.... More

The room had everything we needed in perfect working order. Sound proof windows that can be opened to let in fresh air - a big win! Room was quiet - there was a door to an adjoining room but event hat seemed sound-proof. Our bathroom looked like we were the first to use it, it was sparkling clean. An umbrella... More

The room is quite tiny, however the bed is very comfortable. Although the room is small, it is equipped with a microwave, electric kettle, free coffee, tea and fresh milk. The customer service desk is extremely helpful. The location is superb, lots of choices for restaurants and shopping arcades. There is a small lounge area on the main floor where... More

the location is ideal. Tram out the front, near southern cross station. Clean and cosy rooms. Not paying for unnecessary extras, just a clean, modern and comfortable room in a great location. I bet they get many repeat bookings. We will be back. Friendly staff, everyone smiles.

Stayed here for 4 nights during our Melbourne trip in May 2015. The hotel is conveniently located from Southern Cross Station which makes moving around Melbourne a snap. It is also the drop off location for the Melbourne Airport shuttle making commutes for air travellers even easier. The rooms are extremely clean, cosy and fairly spacious. They have a decent...

An excellent hotel with incredible green credentials. Very friendly staff, lovely food with great choice for both breakfast (including honey from the roof!) and supper. The rooms are comfy, very clean and well appointed My only place of choice now when travelling to Melbourne. A very short walk to southern cross station so a very simple trip to and from... More
