We hit Melbourne, our favourite city, for a 3 day stay especially to go see a concert at the Palais St Kilda. At first glance of the hotel, I thought OH NO!... But by now I've learnt never to judge a book by it's cover so onward we went. Well the rooms were very well catered, modern , clean, despite it being within walking distance to Southern Cross Railway & in a commercial end of the city - surprise it was very quite , slept like a baby; in fact we slept in & missed breakie! - a plus (which you never get on a short stay) was a MICROWAVE!!!!! , cutlery& plates !!!+ the usual tea/coffee, etc; . Beds -king size , comfy, quality bedding ;The hotel is at the entrance to Ethihad Stadium, less than 2 minute walk. Walking distance to the waterfront Docklands area. lots of nice places to eat.Trams around the block. 5-10mins into top end of town . Catch the City Circle tram - it does a full loop of the city , hop off - -on as many times as you like - be aware they start about 10am - finish 9pm; Apart from that; - buy a Mykie travel card at any 7eleven store $7, then top up daily about ?? $4-5 a day & its valid for 24hrs on trains, buses,trams. Mykie card is good for 4yrs! (too easy) Southern Cross Rail (where the coaches drop you off from airport to catch hotel buses (first time in Melbourne buy a return airport bus shuttle ticket $32 return - situated outside on bus terminal )the hotel is a simple overhead walk over rail down some steps & you are there (about 10 mins walk) . Breakfast was good, tasty, very reasonably price $14/ea & the dinning room staff were very pleasant. .Oh yeah the girls on the front reception, were courteous, efficient YES they were, but they've forgotten how to SMILE -my only good do better suggestion.;;;; Apart from that ; yes we were happy with our stay there.
Did I mention we got our stay through Wotif - Secret Hotel $89/night--- what a bargin!!!!
