Pros - relatively cheap for the pricy location, located next to the river and near the Convention Center and near several museums and the aquarium. The room was ok, reasonably clean. A footbridge is very close by and lets you cross the river directly to Flinders Station for trains and trams.
Cons- it is very much a basic no-frills hotel that charges for anything extra. No internet or wifi in your room unless you pay extra. No breakfast unless you pay for it. There is internet down in the lobby with three computers, but they charge 10 cents a minute and 20 cents a page to print out things such as your boarding pass. TV is very basic, with just a few channels - lots of Fox sports rugby. I got a room with a shower that did not separate the tile floor from the rest of the bathroom, so water spilled out all over the bathroom.
This hotel meets the basic requirements for good value, cleanliness, and location but is otherwise bland and unmemorable. The lack of free wifi and internet and printing is the most annoying aspect. It probably deserves only three and a half stars.
Came here for the 2012 ISMRM Convention.
Stayed May 2012.
