I have stayed here before. This time I asked for a quiet room and was given a beautiful room which was really quiet - my previous room had fronted Spencer St. I paid $70 for the night. For two people sharing, $35 each is basically backpacker prices but this is no backpackers. The room had: two comfy beds, couch; table and chairs; bathroom with a huge bath; tea and coffee making facilities; fridge, and flat screen tv. It has a very pleasant restaurant attached. And, it is CLEAN!!! The hotel's location is fantastic - right opposite Southern Cross Station and the airport Skybus, a factory outlet shopping mall, and Etihad Stadium. There are some good restaurants and bars in the area. You can stroll across the Yarra River down to the Casino. The main CBD shops and Art's Centre are either a short train or tram trip away. I think I was fortunate this time as my room was nicer than my previous one, but I was very happy with that one too. I will always choose this hotel for value and location.
