We had two rooms in this hotel for 3 nights, one family room for our family of 4 and a double room for my wife's parents. Both rooms were what we expected for the price, nothing fancy but they had everything we needed and were warm and comfortable. Our family room consisted of two main rooms plus the bathroom, with a king bed in one and two single in the other. The rooms were not very spacious, the king bed seemed to take up a lot of room, so don't stay here if you like a room with plenty of space. However we didn't mind, especially since we spent most of our time out and about, as we normally do in Melbourne to make the most of it. Each room had a small heat pump which kept the place nice and cosy, in fact we turned ours off altogether one night as we got too warm. Was quiet as well except for a bit of noise from people coming and going from other rooms. The dispensers for shampoo, hand wash, etc in the bathroom are a great idea.
The location of this place is quite good, but we did have a car so didn't use public transport. However I was told it is only about a block away from the free tram, and I think it would be about a 20 minute walk to the CBD. It is close to some shops, including an IGA supermarket which we used a couple of times. The only negative I could say was the car park was difficult for the large Kia van we had, a lot of the spots are only suitable for smallish cars. However we always managed to get it in, and the parking was included free with the accommodation unlike most of the CBD hotels who charge quite a lot at times.
I think what made our stay here was the customer service, everyone on the front desk was friendly and more than happy to help when needed. A lot of more expensive hotels could learn something from these guys. We were also lucky enough to score breakfast with our deal, this was a continental breakfast in the café at the front. This was great, and the service from Katarina in the café was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble, and the coffee is highly recommended.
If you are after some great budget accommodation while in Melbourne this place is worth a try. We would stay here again.
