You just cannot get any better if you want comfort at a budget price in a central location. Get the same service, cleanliness and comfort that you'd expect from the Accor chain (Mecure, Novotel), but at a fraction of the price.
Location: Right near Southern Cross station and a short stroll to the city hub. Perfect if you don't have a car. I expect parking would not be free in this area. This is not the Paris end of Melbourne city (they are trying to call it the New York end but I don't think it's catching on), so don't expect it to be as lovely as uptown.
Rooms: Quiet, perfect temperature, view of the office next door. Mine was very spacious with a king sized bed. Clean bathrooms with no unsightly mold. They replaced the milk and coffee on a daily basis, tidied the room and made the bed. Great to come home to after a full day out.
Internet: There is a computer in the lobby where you can check your emails etc free for 15 minutes. I used this option as I came from overseas and didn't get a 3G plan in Australia for my iphone. It was good enough for me, but I do wish there was free internet in the rooms. I guess that's why it's budget.
Breakfast: I didn't have breakfast in the hotel, especially when there are so many exciting coffee shop options down the lane ways of Melbourne. It did kinda have a kitchen smell when you walk past the lobby though. Not a concern for me though.
