Unfortunately we arrived very early in the morning and the concierge was not that helpful.We found the rooms comfortable, and the general feel of the place quite "homely". It is certainly conveniently close to the City,Chapel St ,St Kilda, South Melbourne and Albert Park.
The lovely reading room,billiards room, restaurant and balcony add to the ambience. We did find the bathroom a little squeezy, with the space between sink, toilet and shower a bit tight.
Overall a nice place to stay.
