I stayed for two nights with my Mum and booked a very good deal through the website directly. The room was was small, but it's all we needed. The beds were comfy, television a good size and everything was clean and contemporary.
The only downside is the shower over the bath. It's very high to step in to and out of and wasn't really comfortable. It's the only thing that stopped me from giving a 5 star review. The pressure and temperature were great though.
The staff were brilliant and very helpful, and we got a very good deal on breakfast (which itself was fantastic).
We didn't have a view, but we didn't want or need one. We were in the city to explore and do an encounter at the zoo, not sit in our room and look out the window. I will never understand why people complain about not having a view in the middle of the CBD, particularly when the room it's not advertised as a having one. As is the norm for hotels in big cities, our room looked right in to the office next door. So we closed the blinds, and that didn't worry us as we were usually only in the room at night anyway.
We requested a higher and quieter room, and I will be honest in saying I did not hear a thing at all, which was surprising considering the location on Flinders Street. There were cafes, shops and and a supermarket around the corner, trains opposite and trams everywhere. We couldn't have stayed anywhere better.
I would definitely stay here again.
