The Grand Hotel felt comfortable and relaxing from the first moment, with signing in being simple and quick even after midnight (24 hour concierge). The room (studio size) is not new or luxurious but is clean and well proportioned.
The only thing that we would want to be improved is the air conditioning function and controls and the availability of electricity outlets. The room has almost anything you need to cook for yourself and prepare quick snacks when not enjoying the excellent new Melbourne food scene.
The distance from stations is excellent and the south facing rooms are not noisy despite the area. There are many lovely coffee shops all around so the breakfast is not needed, but if one inclined to have it, it is quite nice. The pool in the rear is small but nice and quiet and the gym is also small but well equipped for its size.
