Excellent service and courtyard was great. Had noisy neighbours on our last night but the hotel receptionist dealt with it quickly and efficiently and had no trouble after that. I would recommend this hotel. Small bathroom and room but adequate for two nights.

The location is good for public transport - trams and the Southern Cross Station for train travel. The room was a small double and the double bed just too big for the room: you only had a small space to get in and out of bed. The first night there was no bedside lamp (no room for usual bedside table)... More

Overall good hotel room although compact. Good for a night or 2 but might need somewhere bigger for an extended stay. Bathroom very small shower door opening just over a foot wide so chubbier guest would struggle to fit in

Hotel is located near tram and train station which makes it very convenient. Rooms are a little small but comfortable. Laundry is convenient. Very nice lobby. Price is reasonable. Staff was very helpful.

The room is small but it had a good size bed, its clean, modern and has all you need including a small fridge. The shower head (in our room) is the only thing i would fault on. Reception were very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

We are definitely used to larger hotels but I wanted to give it a try as it was close to the show we were off to. The staff were extremely friendly, the room was clean and very tiny but I new that. If you are claustrophobic or want space this isn't the hotel for you, but i thought it was... More

The only concern is to ask if they had bigger beds. Had a king size in width but the length was to short. If over 175 cm your feet will be out of the bed. All other areas are a good feeling to be there

We were pleasantly surprised with our accomodation. Walking distance to Crown, South Wharf Restaurants and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Rooms were small but clean, modern and very comfortable.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
