After staying at the Pensione Hotel Sydney which I really enjoyed I decided to give the Melbourne property a try.
Getting to the hotel is easy as. I was travelling alone and always get a little worried with the transfers to and from the hotels. But you catch the shuttle straight from the airport (skybus I think) which drops you at Spencer street station which is a 5 mins walk from the hotel.
From the moment I walked in I was amazed, The entrance reminding me of a 5 star hotel, not a boutique. There is really funky bar at the entrance which has a excellent happy hour, prefect for pre drinks or even a night out..
I arrived early but the staff were able to check me in straight away. And were so amazingly friendly. They even ungraded me free of charge!
My room was AMAZING!! I slept like a baby.
Yes the bathroom was a little on the small side, but not overly small there was certainly more than enough room to shower in. Im not sure what all the people on here are complaining about. I spend a max of 10 mins in the bathroom and I dont need a whole lot of space I am not going to use...
Anywho onto more important stuff than "bathrooms"
I picked all the staffs brains on what to do and how to get around and they were so helpful! They booked a few tours for me and recommended some great places to eat.
They are in walking distance to the whole city.
I will be definitely be returning :)
