We stayed here for 3 nights in a Balcony Suite room, having booked through needitnow.com.
The position of this gorgeous boutique hotel is fabulous. Having come from Sydney, Fitzroy Street can best be described as Macleay St Kings Cross meets Bondi. There are several fabulous restaurants within a five minute walk, you can't go past Cuore Cafe, 49 Fitzroy St for stunning Northern Italian food or breakfast at the St Kilda Baths.. We also heard Lau's Family Kitchen is worth a visit but they don't seem to take bookings so you'd need to get in early.
The room itself was vibrantly decorated, clean and a reasonable albeit cosy size. The balcony overlooks Fitzroy street, so the rumbling of trams and general street noise is reasonably audible in the room. Nothing that earplugs won't fix at night, and a small price to pay for being in the thick of the action.
The staff seemed friendly, there were DVD's available to rent from reception for $3-5 and the room was made up quickly in the morning.
There is 4 hour on-street parking during the day, and all-night unmetered parking at night a block behind the hotel. Trams stop right out the front and run regularly to the city.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to young couples and anyone wanting to stay in a friendly, vibrant location.
