“2015 Business Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This location was recommended to me and the stay was great. Right in the middle of famous Lygon St.
I believe all the rooms have just been modernised and now are very nice.
My bed was very comfortable, the shower nice and big , plenty of hot water and spacious.
Parking is available via a back lane.
Recommend to all for a nice place to stay in the Lygon, Carlton area.

My wife has stayed twice (once with me), whilst attending a conference at Royal Melbourne Hospital. Short walk to hospital(10-15mins). Hotel was great value considering the location. Close to a multitude of restaurants. Only a short walk to Swanston Street to catch a tram to city or just walk down. Wi-Fi was excellent. We have only stayed mid-week which was pretty quiet. I imagine on weekends it could get a bit noisy with the Lygon street activity. Great because you have kitchen facility so you can self-cater. Highly recommended mainly due to the location and price. We are already planning our next stay there.

Just spent 3 days here. The room was comfortable and well presented. The bathroom was small, but very modern with a large shower. The staff were friendly and I assume this is a family run hotel. Only two things I would note. Availability of parking is hit and miss (first come first served), though I did get Parking when I needed it. The other thing was no sheer curtains to allow natural light in without being seen from outside. Will definitely use again.

My wife and I stayed here while at a conference.
The rooms are clean and well set up. The rooms are modern and the bathroom is small but very well set out.
You step out of the front door onto Lygon Street do eating out is simple and we got off street secure parking.
All good here. Would be happy to stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel just for one night, we had an engagement party which we walked home from on Exhibition St. The hotel is so close to Melbourne CBD and so much cheaper than other places. The room had a kitchenette, which we didn't really need and free parking behind the hotel. We did have a small balcony which faced a brick wall. We found this hotel to be great for our last minute booking

Room Tip: We had a south facing room with no view, just a brick wall but we didn't mind as we only stayed...

We stayed for one night in this hotel.
Location is good in the Italian area of Melbourne.
Staff was OK and Wi-Fi is free.
It miss some stuff in the kitchen.
There is electric hotplate but no saucepan...
Moreover there was road works on the side of the hotel. Windows are not really soundproof and the beginning of the night wasn't easy. It would have been better if we had been informed about the road works.

We stayed here for one night whilst waiting for our daughter to be admitted to hospital and were very impressed with the spacious room and spotless amenities. Kitchenette is well equipped but why would you want to cook when out the door there are heaps of restaurants?
Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
Excellent location to public transport, shops and the inner city.
Would stay here again.
