I found the staff at this inner city hotel to be friendly and efficient. I found the location to be excellent ad many shops, cafe's bar and restaurants surround the area including some world famous names such as Guy Grossi around the corner. An early check in wasn't available but my bag was in the room on my return and my request for a higher floor was met and exceeded as I was placed in a room on the top floor. The bathroom wasn't large but I didn't experience any of the space issues mentioned in previous reviews and i'm a big man. Yes the tub/shower was more off white than snow white but it wasn't dirty it was just old. I found the bed to be comfortable and the pillows nice. The arm chair was a plus too. This is a very good property and next time I'm in Melbourne on business it will be on top of my list.
