What more could you want? In the centre of Melbourne it is a short walk to the great shops, coffee shops and bars that this wonderful city offers. Only a 10 minute walk away is ACMI, currently presenting the Hollywood Costume exhibition, and the Ian Potter gallery which showcases Australian Art. Melbourne is a great city for walking, and within 15 minutes you could be exploring Gertrude Street and its amazing shops, checking out the casino and the myriad dining options there, or visiting an outlet centre. Trams and trains are close if you want to travel further afield.
And the room? The bed/pillow combination was one of the most comfortable I've experienced in a hotel. The decor is a bit dated, but you probably won't be spending too much time in your room. Because the hotel is in the city the room was a bit dark, even though I could look across to a small square and open spaces, but that's what you get when you are surrounded by tall buildings. I'm sure the right room would have sunshine streaming in.
