We spent a weekend at this hotel and I was most impressed. We had also stayed here several years ago but the refurbished rooms in this old heritage building are a great improvement.
Check in at Reception was prompt and we were able to check into our room a few hours early.The lady at the front desk was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for her. Looby is small but has kept the old charm from the era.
We had a 1 bedroom apartment which was both roomy and modern. This apartment could sleep 2 Adults and 2 Children.There were 2 flat screen TVs,pay television,dishwasher,2 burner stove,microwave to name a few of the features. Kitchen was fully equiped but really no need to cook as eateries are close by and very cheap.We purchased mains in a local Thai Cafe for about $10. Several food courts nearby also so you are spoilt for food choices at reasonable prices.Many fine dining options nearby also.
The location is in Flinders Lane between Queen St and Elizabeth St. Its only a very short walk away from the Flinders St Station. Being in the lane made the location quiet but very convenient.If coming from the airport the airport shutle will drop you off at the hotel.
I would highly recommend staying at this hotel but if you are looking for a place with recreation features such as pools etc this wont be the place for you.
