I stayed at the Classic Room with double bed for 3 nights, and it was a real bargain!
Price wise it is much cheaper than many hotels in the vicinity and the room was very clean and spacious. I especially like the bathroom with the long mirror and separate shower area.
Given that it is only just 5 minutes away from the Southern Cross station, with several convenience stores in the vicinity, and a couple of tram stops surrounding this area, it was extremely accessible.
The free city tram also has a stop a corner street down so you don't even have to pay to explore the Melbourne city. :)
hence, I dont quite understand the low rating this place gets. I do think their affordability, cleanliness and clean rooms (with a tv that has many channels to watch at night when the streets become dark and shops close too early) are commendable.
Though, service staff need to smile more and show more friendliness. They seem to not be in the best of mood all the time. otherwise, great stay!!!
