Located on St. Kilda Road in front of tram station and convenient to CBD. We took a shuttle to the hotel from the airport and arrived close to noon and fortunately a room was available for us. The room itself was adequate size with a tiny, very narrow (did I say narrow?) bathroom. The furnishings were not the highest but clean with crisp sheets and the hotel seemed to be well worth every dollar spent. The front desk personnel seemed to actually enjoy their job and were cheerful, helpful, intelligent and full of information making our daily planning efficient and enjoyable. The facility itself is very pretty located in an old limestone mansion on a pretty, but very busy, street. We used the laundry facility and the rooms had a great hairdryer and an iron I wish I could have brought home with me. We ended up extending our visit because the value seemed to be outstanding and the staff so friendly. We did not eat there except to grab the apple from the front desk as we ventured out in the morning. We had a car which we were able to park out front over the weekend and move to around the corner on the weekday thus avoiding the high cost of pay to park lots. The hotel was quite full yet we were not bothered by noise (we stayed on the first floor back from the street) and were quite happy to overlook the negatives of tired furnishings due to the strong positives. Give it a try!
