My partner and I went here for a weekend in Melbourne. We stayed three nights. This Hotel is not a five star hotel, don't be fooled by the glossy photo's as I was, of the rooms. It's not luxurious and I think this is a vital part of a lot of peoples five star Hotel experience. At best it is a four star Hotel, so don't stay here and think you can walk around like a Roman Emperor in your Hotel supplied robe smelling the flowers in your room and gazing down the street with a good view after the most magic relaxing shower you have ever had, having dorned yourself with ten different bathroom products, (no robes supplied anyway). As others have said in reviews of this Hotel the rooms are very dated, the bath in ours was a very old Jacuzzi style 70,s number, that off-yellow look in a very small dark bathroom. I ventured to the shower to find a single dark long black hair in the bath, it just puts you off. Room itself was always dark, but the place generally reeks of age and the number of people that have stayed there, well overdue for total renovation. One other notable head shaking event was the "pot of tea" which was a $7.50 pot of hot water and two miserable tea bags which you have in your room anyway! Not a place for romantic weekends, I found myself becoming a Philosopher taming my growing anger, but this place could serve well for the boys out for a cheaper weekend. Staff were fine but don't expect yes sir no sir, let me help you with your bag sir, I would describe the concierge as a nervous ghost.
