“Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Booked this place that had mixed reviews and had me a little worried, however it has all you need and more. Great location, 1 block from Bourke St Mall and Trams, 50m from Elizabeth St Trams and Shops, great cafes and pubs right at the front door. Reception is small and busy but very clean and cool. Rooms are only ready after 2pm so we had a little wait but when we got in there, Deluxe Twin, it was clean and perfect for what we needed. Firm comfortable beds, great bathroom, excellent shower, full block out curtains and no outside noises, Aircond perfect...Very happy with our few days, will stay again. Thanks 353.

Room Tip: Book away from the lift. We had a room 7 rooms away from the lift and didn't hear a thing

Stayed here with partner for one night. Good location in quiet area of Melbourne yet close to shops, cafes etc. First gripe is the room was not cleaned very well, in fact the carpets had not been vacuumed. Secondly, the staff need to lighten up and smile! Overall it was a positive experience but could have been a lot better if the staff made a bit more effort.
Also, fire alarms were activated throughout the building and although all patrons evacuated, there was no directives, assistance or explanation from staff. Obviously a false alarm, the Fire brigade didnt even bother showing up!

I spent 5 nights at Hotel 353 while away on business. The staff were nothing but friendly to me during my stay - I always received a friendly greeting upon passing the front desk. My room was cleaning immaculately everyday. The hotel is located very centrally - and on weekdays you can grab beautiful coffee (and a fancier breakfast) by literally stepping outside. The breakfast offered is also sufficient - offering cereal, fresh and yummy fruit, croissants, and a selection of toasts with cheese and cold meats.
I will happily stay here again.

Booked room six month in advance for a triple room with three single beds. Got there and they said they upgraded us to a premier room what a joke. We got two singles and a fold out couch that felt like you were sleeping on a board. I had my elderly mother with me and she couldn't get in and out of the bath for a shower which is why I booked the other room. Staff at front counter was nice but all she could say was I am only reception staff. Dirty pillow slips which were replaced but going to have a shower and unfolded the towls to find dirty marks was gross. Filled out form in morning but I would never go there again. Could not adjust air con breakfast basic but what I would expect for for light breaky. Best thing was the location centre of CBD and easy to find and close to where we needed to go with older person who can't walk long way. Over all NO AGAIN

We stayed here for 5 nights during the tennis open and found it a reasonable hotel. A great location, in a cool pedestrian lane with lots of cafes. Found to service excellent and the breakfast was fine. Rooms typical size and condition. Started to feel cramped and lacking sunlight by the end of our stay.

Stayed 4 night in a king room at the 8th floor. Fairly basic city hotel, darkish and a bit worn out rooms and not so great A/C, but perfect location, adequate breakfast and ok service. Only downfall was stained bed liners (maybe we got the same one's than some of the previous reviewers did, lol): I really do not understand why the cleaners did not even turn the sheet upside down, but mad the bed every day so that the obviously "femine-origin" stain was right at the most visible spot. But that's all to complain really, and I do not agree with some of the previous reviews saying the breakfast room was "cavey" or alleyway shabby - maybe that's true during the weekends, but from Mon-Fri it's full of small restaurants serving lunch & outdoor seating.
