Love that everything is very no frills here. Free minibar (which is fairly limited - water, juice, beer and white wine), breakfast pastries available in the lobby, free wifi and local calls. No surprise charges when you check out.
Great location for close proximity to the central business district of Melbourne. We visited to attend the Australian Open and this was a very easy walk to Melbourne Park (20 minutes at most).
One of the few options we found that had rooms that would sleep more than 2 adults. Offered 2 bedroom suites for a reasonable price.
Front desk staff was mostly very helpful. Sven was great and willing to help with any questions or needs. We bookended our trip to Australia at this hotel and were able to leave some of our bags at the hotel while we traveled around which was great. When we returned, they had already put them in our room.
Little Bourke street is a quiet street, so not much worry about noise, but there was one night where there were several teenagers hanging out in the alley outside of our room, so a higher floor is preferable. As far as I could tell, no rooms in this hotel would have much of a view.
The bathroom was definitely the drawback of this hotel. Very small sink/vanity and a shower with no door which did cause the bathroom to get fairly wet. You could not have more than one person in this bathroom at a time.
I would definitely stay here again on another trip to Melbourne.
