We didn't realise when we booked that we were staying in the poor version of the hotel. I thought it was all one hotel but it appears the Mercure and the Mercure Welcome are two very different things. While the rooms were clean, the carpet was quite dirty and the bathroom very basic. I thought it was extremely overpriced for what we got, but in saying that it was the weekend of the Grand Prix. The location of the hotel was fantastic, walking distance to shops and Southbank. If your looking for a bed with no frills and can get it for a cheaper price than $289 this is the hotel for you.
