This hotel is a great spot in Melbourne. Right near the theatre and China Town. We loved the little cafes around and it was safe at night.
The staff are friendly and always prompt and pleasant.
However this hotel really is more of a 3 star. The queen room is tiny and when people say small bathrooms they aren't exaggerating! They are the smallest bathrooms in any hotel I've stayed in. The toiletries provided arent that lovely and everything seems old. The room was very small with a cot in it.
We were near the lifts but never heard the noise and the view was nice.
I would recommend this hotel if you get a good deal and need to be near the theatre or china town. Otherwise Id wait until they refurbish it... It's definitely more of a 3 star hotel is friendly service.
