“Good location - only stay if its on a cheap deal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Chose this hotel for a business trip on the basis its one of the Accor group, and it was on a bargain deal.

Positives:
- Located right in the centre of the city.
- Bathroom was a nice refurb job
Negatives:
- Pokey room
- View of a concrete wall
- Room had an adjoining room door (locked) through which you could hear everything from the next door room.
- Check-in was painfully slow

So worth staying if your travelling alone on a business trip and need a budget hotel in a good location. Otherwise avoid.

Room Tip: A cheap one without an adjoining door preferably.

My husband and I had stayed at this hotel previously and were pleased with our rooms.
However this time I travelled with a friend and we were very disappointed with the room. Admittedly when we boked it we thought it was a great price but because I had stayed previously did not think too much more about it unti our arrival. The room was tiny, very out dated, aircon was noisy, plumbing noisy, window tiny and our view was looking at a another wall with tiny windows.....felt very closed in. The photo of the room on the internet did not reflect this room. The rooms were clean however I will be cautious next time and ask for a refurbished room.
The location of the Hotel fantastic - however be aware that the taxis outside the front door will refuse fares other than to the airport.

Right in the middle of the city,China Town directly opposite with excellent restaurants and so many to chose from .Rooms are large and very comfortable ,the breakfast buffet on the first floor is something not to go past $ 15. Really great value and has everything Would stay there again.

Room Tip: We just took what was given and were quite pleased with it.

Walls were thin and i could easily hear tv etc next door. The room was small and pokey and bathroom very outdated. Carpet had stains on it. Aircon did not work until repair man fixed it. The phone had a permanent "you have message" light flashing but no actual message.
This hotel is in bad need of an upgrade!! Parking was at a parking station about 300 meters away.....crazy!!

Hotel is close to Theatres and the Central Mall/Shopping District. Recommend a browse through Haighs chocolates in the foyer and a coffee at Brunettis in Swanston Street. Comfortable bed. Very clean. Friendly, helpful staff. Shame the hot water in the shower went from bearable to burning heat without warning or adjustment by the user. We will visit again.
