wasn't sure my travel partner was coming left booking til day of travel, booked for 1 night as not sure being so cheap we would like it, requested and got balcony as we are smokers.
we arrived afterhours and let ourselves in following instructions given earlier,
had milk, coffee, tea and sugar enough to keep us going for the night.
hooked up easily to the free wifi (and i'm not computer smart),
there is a 24 hour shop for basics on the corner.
maccas 10 minute walk
10 minute easy stroll to the city
we loved it so much booked a couple more nights, with them giving us the discount which they didn't have to, and booked a couple more nights on our return from staying at st Kilda.
but accommodation in St Kilda was filthy, so rang them next morning asking if they had a room available cause we wanted to come back and luckily they did.
arrived back early so they stored our luggage while we went off to lunch at a great pub British Crown hotel about 10 minutes walk, which had a lovely beer garden.
got a different room on return still with balcony, not quite as nice a room as the other one, but still clean.
they had room service each day with fresh towels.
the staff were all friendly and helpful, if you need directions they will give it to you
can't recommend highly enough, will always use when in melbourne
