This is a very convenient CBD location, across the road from the Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens and adjacent to the sporting precinct of the MCG and the Melbourne Tennis Centre. A ‘boutique’ hotel, I had a ‘flash’ room with a balcony. The room was fine, if squeezy. There was an Olympic swimming pool sized bed (very comfortable!), which took up most of it, a settee or divan (with no coffee table in front of it – and it could have done with that because there was little shelf room, particularly after laptop was set up on the only shelf available) and the smallest bathroom in the world. The shower recess was generous enough (getting hot water was a bit tricky), but the vanity and toilet area I could not turn around in (and had no room to lay out toiletries). I had to step out of the bathroom to dry myself properly because there wasn’t enough room to throw a towel around! The hot water was very annoying because it took ages to warm up during which time litres and litres were running down the drain. I’m assuming this is because the hotel has just had a refurb [don’t worry if you can smell paint, Madam] and they haven’t fine-tuned the hot water. It wasn’t a problem at 0530 on the morning of departure – hot water kicked in immediately. Maybe it’s a supply issue.
There is a limited (very limited) Room Service Menu, but the food was good. No bar list in the room so had to be guided by whoever answered the Room Service phone (which was usually Reception because the restaurant was busy). No chair or table on the balcony. I did ask for food (cheese plate) which was not on the Room Service menu, and they were not only happy to oblige but produced a magnificent plate.
With a little tweaking, this could be a really good property. Staff were friendly and helpful. Property was in good condition.
