“VERY NOISY, GOOD LOCATION”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2009

This hotel is in a good location, right next to myer, and central to everything. The service at this hotel is poor, they couldnt tell us where anything was and didnt really know much about the area. The noise from the construction near Myer was an issue, the windows are very thin and you can hear everything outside and inside, at about 12 midnight you can hear the garbage man come and empty the bins, then at 5am the construction near myer starts, right outside the window, u really need ear plugs to sleep! I guess it depends where your room is, but our room was looking onto myer. We could hear domestics occurring next door as well. I suggest staying at the Somerset which is nearby where you will get great service and they at least know where things are in Melbourne and can suggest places to eat at etc.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2009

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment during September for a week and found it to be the perfect location to base ourselves when in Melbourne. We could easily navigate between South Yarra, Richmond and Carlton from nearby trams, and all the best restaurants and city bars were within easy walking distance. Rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed and we were more than happy with the value for money. Would definitely stay here again :)

I was very dissapointed with the service I received from Maryanne the Manager of the hotel. I had to sadly canx my the booking made for my parents as my mother had a stroke. I called to see if I was able to receive part of my money back. I was rudely spoken to by Maryanne who advised that travel insurance should cover this cost. She had no empathy, compassion or sensitivity and treated me as a business transaction. I respect their cancellation policies but hoped they could use discression in some circumstances. Suffice to say I would never use this hotel ever again and do not reccommend them !!!

We were pleasantly surprised by this nice loft apartment where we stayed for 6 nights.It was clean and tidy,also spacious,however they do not service all apartments daily and there is nowhere to dispose of rubbish. The location is fantastic, right next door to Myer.There is rebuilding and construction going on all around,but not bothered by it. But be aware that right next door (literally in the alleyway by our room) is a very noisy very loud pub that plays thumping music until the early hours. Do not expect to get any sleep.This was the only thing that spoilt our stay.

Great location, and an all round great little place, with the amenities you'd expect, for a really good price.

The rooms weren't the most luxurious or modern, but they had all the features you need.

This place is really good if you want to base yourself somewhere centrally in Melbourne for a few days, without paying too much.

My girlfriend and I (both in 50's) and her 24yo daughter spend 4 nights at the Breakfree and was pleasantly surprised how great it was. We arrived from Perth last Tuesday in the afternoon and given the keys to our room. We noted we only had two wine glasses and called reception for this and an extra towel. Within minutes the chap from reception arrived with three glasses and three towels. The rooms were very clean and tidy and also comfortable. We booked a one bed apartment which was adequate for out needs. The Breakfree is also in an excellent location, next door to Myer. I would definitely recommend to others seeking a shopping extravaganza trip.

Plus points;
(1) Good location

Minus points;
(1) Rooms and all furnishing are VERY old.
(2) For dunno what reason, the room fire alarm showed signs of water leakage and the next day, the room alarm went off at 2am!! Best part was, the staff in the hotel did not know abt it and I had to called them up to fixed up the problem.
(3) The entrance to the hotel is pretty isolated and quiet at night.. pretty dangerous to walk back at night.
(4) The shower head is pathetic.. The water output makes me spend twice the time i normally used at home.
