My son organised for us to stay in this hotel because it was cheap. I was OK with that but on the trip to Melbourne decided to search for reviews and became rather concerned by what I read. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find that although the rooms were rather dated they were clean and roomy and the staff were accommodating.
Although others have complained about the noise in the rooms we were made aware before we booked that this could be an issue and I have to say although we could hear some noise it was not an issue, and we were there over the period between Christmas and New Year.
One of the real pluses with this hotel is that it is very centrally located to restaurants, public transport, nearby shopping and the MCG.
Was disappointed that they listed that they had a gym on the website, but when I asked about it they said it was no longer there.
