5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I recently stayed with the hotel group for the first time and was pleasantly surprised to find that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The service was top notch and the accommodations spacious and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to stay in the heart of Melbourne.

The rooms look nothing like the photos online. Bed was two single beds pushed together. Great location but very disappointing hotel. The staff in the lobby were lovely. The hotel claims it has free wifi but really the wifi is only free for 1hr and then you have to pay. Would not stay here again

I stayed here for 3 nights in June 2016 for business. I requested a higher level floor to minimise traffic noise and that worked well. The bed faces the door of the room and is positioned very close to the opening of the door. Therefore, the cracks of common hallway light on either side of the hotel door shine onto... More

The hotel was adequate but the surrounding dining options were limited, The $19 steak meal would have been nice but being a Saturday evening it was not available. The breakfast was acceptable but far from impressive. The room was comfortable and thankfully NOT to warm.

The service and people running the Hotel can't be faulted for their manner and approachability. Our tiny room was very dated and needs refurbishment. No convenient plug for the jug was an issue and shower over the bath proved an inconvenience with a bad back. The room was not well serviced on our 2nd day. Beds were made but rubbish... More

Overall the Hotel, and more specifically the room was very good for the price. In the heart of the city, close to all venues, I would recommend this to anyone planning a short stay in Melbourne. The Hotel has obviously had a major refurb. but they have pulled it off quite well. The full breakfast was a little expensive but... More

We had a upper floor room. Very quiet, not much traffic noise. Bed was comfortable. Shower was great. Good location close to China town. About 15 minute walk to yarra river and flinders street station.

Good location near to all shops, staff friendly and polite, prompt service by room attendants when called, we didnt use any other hotel facilities apart from the room, which was a bit small but still ok, bed and pillows were very comfortable,

We had a king room which was very spacious with nice furnishings and a modern bathroom. We had dinner in restaurant which was great and staff were very professional. Plenty of choices with the buffet breakfast and was very reasonably priced.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
