“Brithday Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The hotel was great right from the moment we walked in the front doors. The staff were very professional and pleasant at the same time. As our room wasn't available they were able to put our bags in storage and made arrangements for the bags to then be delivered straight to our room once ready so all we had to do on our return was collect our room key and go straight there. No mucking around. The location was great as it is straight across from the Flinders Street Station and straight up the lane to the malls with plently of shopping. Have a fantastic time.

We really love the southbank area and this hotel is idealy placed. Some of the reviews mentioned traffic and train noise but our room was very quiet and I would think only t a few on the Flinders Street frontage could possibly be affected.

As with most older inner city buildings there is limited view. But for the price we thought it was excellent value. We will stay here again

The upgrade to the city view room is very great!
The location is good!
Everything is good, except that I didn't find the milk for coffee, which can usually be found in the fridge in other hotel.
Anyway, it's a great room.

Certainly cannot complain about the location. The room was very good. Much better in view of the cost. Room service operator very polite, repectful and helpful, providing promt and very efficient service. The wine provided was sensational. A Sticks pinot nior. Excellent staff at reception. Most certingly recommend. Paking could be considered an issue. Distance from the Citigate an cost. Thank you to all staff. Cheers.

Stayed here on Melbourne cup weekend after another one of our impromptu nights on the town. Given that it was Melbourne cup weekend it was good that not only did they have a room available, but the tariff wasn't overinflated.
The rooms are a little small and even though they'd been taken over by Accor they wouldn't accept my Accor Advantage card, but this wasn't a big deal.
Location wise it's pretty hard to beat being directly opposite Flinder St station and a stones throw from Elizabeth Street.

Found this hotel on Expedia & very happy with price.This hotel is located opposite Flinders St railway station. We arrived on a Friday night & the street was buzzing with people & general chaos to be expected of a central CBD precinct. The room was clean & windows sealed so the street noise not heard. Beds & pillow too soft for my liking.The reception staff were friendly & pointed us to the many quaint laneways filled with cafes & restauarants. Federation square was just up the road. A nice walk across the bridge to the Art centre & down to SouthGate & further along to the casino. Overall a great central location for a short city break.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms next to cleaners storerooms

This hotel was over priced for what it was. Room was reasonably sized and clean.

Good location. Glad for free wifi in lobby. Hated the fact they didn't have own parking however they have a deal with a car park 2 mins away for $28 a day.
