    Booked due to convenience to Southern Cross train station (had flight arriving midnight, and needed to be on other side of Melbourne early). Clean, friendly staff. Small, but suited my need of comfy bed only.

    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

    The hotel is in a reasonably quiet part of Spencer Street. Etihad is reasonably close but I doubt you could hear noise from there.
