A few years ago, we booked in this same hotel but was disappointed with the condition of the room i.e. toilet was not properly clean, the air-con is extremely dirty and noisy, bathroom is so small, the room is also small and narrow not enough space to move around. When we arrived in Melbourne after more than 24 hours journey from London, we have trouble finding accommodation in the middle of the city (a last minute decision) so we decided to take a chance hoping that we'll end up in a better room. Firstly, we needed a day or two to rest and relax before heading to our next destination interstate. Of course, we were not disappointed, it's much better than last time. The bathroom is clean and renovated, the twin beds in the room I guess is okay; the room has: a desk and chair, iron/ironing board, small fridge and kettle to make coffee, toiletries this time was provided. We were on the top floor (7F) and did not think that the next day early morning, there will be some tradespeople working just outside the window. Our dream of staying in bed longer evaporated and was forced to go out instead at 9 a.m. The noise is unbearable hammering so close to our room.
Internet: No wireless internet in the room but you can use a cable (in our case it doesn't fit with our MacBook air), it cost you $5 for half an hour.
Luggage: Storage is not free and you can store your luggage in a locker on the Ground Floor on the right side behind the reception and cost you $7.50 for 24 hours.
