I stayed here a few years ago, and wasn't all that impressed then, but as I was travelling with dogs, had limited options in Melbourne.
The rooms have really deteriorated since the last time I stayed, and you can still hear people in the other rooms. Listening to someone 'pee' isn't very pleasant to say the least.
I had to pay extra for a pet friendly room, but on arrival, my dogs noses went straight to the floor which means it hadn't been cleaned properly. Overall the room felt grubby, and was smelly. I had to open the door to let air circulate, but there was still an odour.
The room was cramped and very small, although the bed was reasonably comfortable. The shower was difficult to get into as it was over a bath, but also in an alcove.
This hotel could be so much more with a little effort and if it was clean.
