The location couldn't be better for central melbourne, short walk to flinders st / fed square and right in the middle of the shopping district.
The service was friendly, breakfast was good and the room decor was nice. Bathroom was typical novotel - not overly large but modern and well functional.
The window actually looked out over the Australian Arcade shopping centre which was interesting but not quite as light as straight to outside.
The biggest downside to the room was the lighting - there were a total of TWO downlights for the whole room - one was over the door in the hall and hte other was right in front of the tv. 1 desk light nearby the tv and 2 SMALL reading lights and that was it. The room was very gloomy and it was actually hard to unpack! Now I don't need bright lights but enough to unpack your bag or read a book not being under a reading light would be nice.
