“Tiny room but superb location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Room is too small for two people. Bathroom kits are less than other Mercure (I stayed in Mercue Potts Point in Sydney before heading to Melbourne). These weaknesses are outweighed by its superb location as it is adjacent to Chinatown, shopping center, and city circle tram.

It was all too easy. WE arrived had our car valet parked, checked in NO PROBLEMS. The renovations caused a few lift issues but we were prewarned and it was only an issue when we were trying to check out - this problem is not long term and as it is due to renovation, will be all the better for it. The rooms were very clean and quite a good size considering the location. Our stay was stressless - THANK YOU!!

Very clean, comfy cosy rooms that are in the heart of the cbd within walking distance of everything. Felt secure, had comfy mattresses and pillows. Rooms were cleaned everyday without being asked and very economical. Great hot shower pressure too!

Booked this hotel as 50% off normal rate. Hotel undergoing renovations/repairs at the time (obviously the reason for special rate) Was made aware upon booking that they would be down an elevator due to building work. Cant lie it was very frustrating waiting on the lifts. To be fair there was alternate access using fire/stairwell. Our room was of good size, clean but quite dated. Bed comfy. No opening window - felt quiet claustrophobic. The air conditioning unit was out of the ark!! worked ok, but incredibly loud and seemed to run constantly - no way to turn off. Also plumbing/pipework not well insulated - could hear it running in the walls from other rooms. Staff friendly and helpful, restuarant pleasant - not a large selection, but tasty food. Enjoyed the Pokies- quite novel. The bar was great - beautiful Margarita :-).

The location of this hotel was great. One of the 2 lifts was under repair and it inconvienced our family greatly because we had to wait for a long time to get from the lobby to the 8th floor. I heard from another guest that the lift in this hotel breaks down a lot.

This is the best inner city location Rooms are very small but comfy. Bed really good and all amenities available. Little things like having no power point on the bench and having to boil the kettle in the bathroom were small inconveniences.
