I stayed in room 710 as part of a group occupying several rooms on the floor. My room was a standard corner room. The rooms are very basic, one double bed with a bunk over the top, a desk in the corner (with the only power point above it) a TV, tiny screen shower area and toilet. The room was a corner one so I had two windows with a nice view down Elizabeth Street.
In the time I stayed the room was completely remade on one day, and the second day I got some new towels, but the bed wasn't made, and one of my towels was missed.
The bed was comfortable and once the AC was going the room was warm.
The lifts in the hotel seemed to work spasmodically and have a mind of their own.
We received complimentary breakfast for the 3 days, but at $9 for toast or cereal I reckon you could do better to go somewhere else (QV Markets had full plate breakfasts for $10!).
The foyer and entrance is very shabby and crowded and feels very much like a boarding house.
My pet gripe about the room is the layout. There is a tiny wet area with shower and sink. It has a curtain to pull around it, but I'm unsure how any person could get dry behind the curtain.
Secondly the only mirror is located here, which is miles from the nearest power point. For the 3 nights of my stay I had to make do with blow drying by the mirror of my makeup compact :( If I stayed again I would bring an extension cord with me.
In terms of other rooms. We had several of the larger format rooms, and it was disappointing to find not enough blankets and towels, and the fact that the beds have to be made up on arrival. This despite the fact that the rooms were clearly booked for capacity stays.
The blankets are old and worn.
It would be good to see the one framed artistic photo removed from the room and more money spend on new blankets and blinds.
Whilst the view from the room was great, you could not have any natural light in the room without sharing what you were doing with the surrounding office buildings. The blinds are also very old and don't fit the windows.
Despite all of this the location is absolutely awesome for centrality and tram catching and for the price I'd probably do it again. If all you're doing is sleeping in your room than this is a workable place. But I wouldn't share a room with a friend (unless a friend is nimble and one of you is prepared to go the bunkbed option!).
