“Looking for worthy budget stay? Choose this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We Stayed in quad room for 4nights at end of Jan2013.
1. The location was strategic where the access to most tram was very near (right at the corner). This hotel was located at the heart of CBD, where most restaurant and 7-e were nearby
2. We were allowed to have an early check in (11am), the receptionist was helpful and kind enough to tell us where to get the drinking water and the access to kitchen facilities
3. The room was basic, with a section for sink& standing bathroom, and another small room for lavatory. Nevertheless, with the price offered (which similar to price offered by hostel),the flat screen tv and the desk were an extra bonus to the customer.
4. The bed was comfy, had deep sleep every nights of my stay
5. Air cond and heater were working well

Overall, generally was a great and pleasant stay, will recommend to friends and family

Great place to stay, within easy walking distance to main attractions. I liked that the hotel is very close to Flinders station so it was very easy to get to the hotel with our suitcases. Room was very clean and staff were very helpful. Would definitely stay there again

3 nights - $95 per night

Location is the standout for this property. The room is minimal, has a bed, desk, tv, airconditioner, sink, toilet and shower. Sheets, towels and a bar of soap is all that is provided. There is nothing fancy with this property, but then again it provides the basic necessities. The property did allow us to leave our luggage there for free prior to check in. Wifi is charged and you cannot check in prior to 2pm. All in all extremely good value budget accommodation, with enough necessities to make it easily liveable for the no fuss traveller. Don't expect 5 star treatment but rates highly in the budget category

Room Tip: Get a room to the right of the elevator (as you exit - towards the back fo the hotel) as there will...

The service I received was very good all round. The room sufficient for the time we needed to be in the room. the position was perfect for us. We needed to catch a tram to Melbourne Park for the two days. I could recommend the hotel for people like us.

I thank you for the services whilst we were there.

This is a great place to stay. Great value for money and the staff are excellent, bent over backwards to help us. We required a reduced mobility room and this was the one of the best we have stayed in. Plenty or room in the bathroom and in the room to leave the wheelchair. On this visit we had a fridge in our room which was a bonus.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights over the Marathon weekend last October. It was a great location as its just a 10 min walk to the MCG where the races start etc, and very convenient for trams and Flinders St Railway Station. Our room had the queen bed on bottom with a bunk on top and whilst a cosy size was adequate for our stay. The shower and toilet were also small but adequate. The staff let us check in several hours early which was a great convenience. Our room was quiet, had no view and we were very pleased with the value for the location. So many great restaurants and cafes nearby. We didn't have breakfast there but chose to eat out. We'll happily choose this hotel again.
