This is reasonably priced accommodation in a great location close to restaurants, Etihad Stadium, Southern Cross station and several tram lines. Rooms are a reasonable size, and our bed was OK. The pillows are foam, which I am not too keen on. Would have preferred to have an option of a feather pillow, but this was not available.
Rooms include a fridge (but no mini bar), and a microwave, with plates and cutlery. There is a Woolworths supermarket and BWS bottle shop in Southern Cross station about 200 metres from the hotel, and it is really easy to buy a large variety of food that you can heat in the Microwave. The hotel does not have a bar or restaurant, but there are a number restaurants within 300 metres, including the excellent Nine Elephants Thai restaurant. They do have room service dinner in the evening.
The hotel provides breakfast for $15. At time of writing the breakfast is limited to tea, coffee, orange juice, apple juice, white bread toast, mini muffins, tinned fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, canned tomato, hash browns and pan cakes. They don't have the fresh fruit and Danish pastries that are featured in the hotel's breakfast advertisements.a There are lots of places nearby where you can get a better breakfast for less than that.
The location is great. It is about 300 metres from the Airport bus terminus, and the same distance from a Southern Cross station, and several tram stops. So it is a good place to base you next visit to Melbourne.
