the hotel is close to the CBD, walking distance to Flinders St, Crown and everything else you need. needless to say so close to the beautiful southbank promenade where i found nice restaurants and cafes. the room we had was clean and comfortable. I would suggest new air conditioning system because the one we had was making some funny noises not sure whether it was turned on. the front staff were nice - kept our luggages when we arrived really early in the morning before checking in. would have been even nicer if they could be a bit friendlier a smile or two would have been perfect. would definitely recommend my friends to use this hotel.
