The painfully almost-half-hip Vibe brand has done a good job refurbishing this old, grand building. Victorian, Deco and modern decor combine in an unlikely triumph. Black and white bathroom tiles could have been matched with Victorian taps, however they chose to use very simple 1990's fittings. I particularly like a shower with one hot tap, one cold. No mixer! No confusing one knob iPhone-esque power-shower. Brilliant. It won't win awards but it's pleasant enough.
My bed was comfortable. The room a good size.
Staff were uniformly friendly, helpful and charming. I can not praise them more highly.
Wifi is available, via a separate company who must be making a killing out of Australian hotel guests who pay more than anyone on Earth for a commodity which is free almost everywhere else.
The location is close to trams and trains on the western fringe of the city, right opposite Spencer St Station (Southern Cross to young folk).
All in all, a good choice. I would go back.
