“Average but comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Choose to try a mystry deal on wotif.com and ended up with this place.

The location is on Flinders Street between Spence & King Street. The hotel is near a back packers, in the vicinity of a few dodgy bars and a kebab shop. On return late at night the area may feel unsafe for a few people.
The noise from the elevated train station is annoying and the cars/trams are loud if your looking to have a sleep in.

However, it is within a 10min walk to federation square or there is a tram stop right out side. The location is also about a 5-10 min walk to the Crown Casino & nearby restaurants & bars.

The staff were friendly & quite professional. Very welcoming & approachable.

The room was comfortable and warm. We were booked into a studio however were upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment just by being friendly and asking politely. Whilst the rooms are self serviced there is still a hotel feel with room service & mini bar options. There is a pool on the 15th floor along with a spa, sauna and gym. Pretty good for the active person. However the photo on the website was clearly taken awhile back.

Not a bad stay for the price we payed, however would look elsewhere next im in the area.

We booked this at last minute. Rates are 10% cheaper if you book direct ( compared to online).
The rooms were spacious and clean. We were on 11 th floor. We had a large balcony. King bed. Quiet location.

Great location. Short walk to Crown.

Location easy to access off freeway.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Restaraunt downstairs had excellent coffee and cheap but tasty food.

We will be back! :0)

We quite liked the rooms but after requesting upon booking that we had a twin room, we were given a double which we then had to wait for a room change. Then once we got into the new room, we had to wait for the bed to be split and the quilts were taken and only one blanket each was available to us which made for a cold first night. The location was perfect for getting around the Southbank, South Wharf and city on foot. The prompt service was good but a little disconcerting was when staff would enter the room without giving us a chance to answer their knock. Fresh towels were left for us but the room was not serviced. A nice place to stay at a reasonable cost.

Loved the apartment and enjoyed out 2 night stay. Room is nice and big and the room service from the cafe was awesome! Close to everything. The photos of the pool area are outdated and were obviously taken back in better days but the water from the pool and spa was nice and warm, sauna worked a treat too! Would not hesitate in going back and will be keeping my eye out for cheap deals in the future!

Room Tip: Request an apartment that is not right on flinders street as the trains make a hell of a noise

Fantastic place to stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Clean ideal location. We went all around the city and tram stop just out the front to take us in any direction. Looking forward to staying again.

Room Tip: Docklands great view. Friday night you can see the fireworks. We were on the 10th Floor.

Large rooms, good position and friendly helpful staff. Only issue we had was that our room had the view of a lane and not an interesting one and the side of a building. We were also woken at 6 am on Saturday morning by the rubbish collection.

We stayed here recently for the second time, the first time it was Medina Executive Northbank. I can assure you that there is no change in quality or service. We love the location - close proximity to Ethiad Stadium, Casino and Southbank, tram stop right outside, Spencer St Station and a short tram ride or good achievable walk to South Melbourne. The rooms are very modern , yet homely and the beds are comfy. We actually feel as if it is our own little apartment , instead of a hotel.We will come back!

Room Tip: Try the one-bedroom apartment as they are well set out.
