I stayed here for five nights in May because of a great deal on Wotif available at the time I needed to be in Melbourne. I usually stay on St Kilda Road, but the proximity to Spencer St station appealed, as I like to catch the Skybus from Tullamarine airport. There is a slight hill from the station on Collins St to the steps down to Aurora Lane, however there is a lift to take when you have a suitcase. I was a little concerned that it would be unsafe to walk that way at night, but that fear proved unfounded and I never felt unsafe returning to the hotel in the evening. (I was always back by 10pm) My room had a king-size bed and small sofa, both of which were quite hard - certainly no "pillow-top" on the mattress, but the room was clean and a decent size. With numerous trams close by, the location is a winner.
