We had a great night sleep in the heart of Melbourne - for just $110. The Mercure is a basic hotel but is surprisingly well equipped. Our room was small but came with an iron and ironing board, tea and coffee - and biscuits!
The air-conditioning was pretty noisy but this probably drowned out any external noises so we didn't mind. We have stayed in this hotel before in a room that was over looking Swanston Street - which was very noisy indeed. This time we were in a different part of the hotel so heard nothing.
The room was reasonably clean (not perfect) and the bed was comfortable - although the pillows were hard.
The one downside of this hotel is the inattentiveness of reception. There was always a queue when I went past, and staff had a tendency to be "busy" on computers or the phone in the reception area, ignoring customers. This is a minor complaint however.
Overall, excellent value for a stopoff or a 1-2 night stay.
