We stayed last Saturday night and it's so handy to Southbank and the Casino. I honestly expected a bit of noise throughout the night with sirens and people, but I couldn't believe that I slept straight through. We were on level 7 and the block out curtains do a great job.
Sure it's not the fanciest of hotels, but the bed was comfy enough and the river view room I had gave us one of the best views in Melbourne. The bathrooms are a little tired so that's why I gave it 4 stars and not 5. I wouldn't hesitate at staying here again. I mentioned that it was hubby's birthday when we checked in and we were surprised later on to come back to a bottle of wine on ice, and a nice handwritten card. The buffet breakfast was excellent, we arrived at peak time around 9ish and it was well stocked and not overly crowded, plenty of room for everyone, and even an omelette station! Brilliant standard check out of 12pm, and they even extended it to 2pm for us. Highly recommend.
