Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend break and it suited us perfectly.
The hotel room was an average size for a queen size bedroom, clean and satisfactory.
The staff were freindly always greeting us whenever we walked past reception. The hotel was in a good location, across the road from the Southern Cross railway station and very handy to the tram stops to take you into the city centre or to St. Kilda. We generally walked into the city which was quite a comfortable and only taking an easy 10 to 15 minutes. Getting to the riverside and Casino is also an easy walk and less than 10 minutes.
Walking to the city we went various ways which we encountered many quaint cafe's, restaurants and a few bars along the way, which we would hav missed if we had stayed in the city centre or south of the river.. Would recommend the hotel as we could not fault it's appearance. Cannot quote on any meals as we dined out enjoying the great Melbourne hospitality.
