I stayed here for work on the night I arrived in Melbourne and then checked out the next morning to travel all over Victoria. I came back the following Friday and stayed the weekend, checking out on Sunday. My colleague and I were thrilled with our rooms, the decor was pretty cool! We both had full kitchens with big bathrooms, big rooms and ginormous beds (I slept sideways one night and still couldn't touch the sides). It is close to the city, has great views from the rooms, easy access parking and right on a tram line. The rest of the hotels for our trip didn't even remotely meet the standards of this hotel so I was looking forward to coming back.
In terms of the staff, there was an Austrian man here as a student working for the hotel who was just lovely. He was really helpful and made me feel welcomed. There were three women though that weren't quite so nice. They weren't so welcoming and seemed to ignore us until they needed to talk to us.
Big one - watch out for the corners on the ramps in the car park, I found them and scratched up the side of the hire car.
