I stayed here in November for 5 nights to attend a conference but I would find different accomodation next time. The room was extremely noisy with street noise and on sunday morning 4am a street fight with people throwing bottles was quite disturbing. This clearly is not the fault of the hotel and another room may have been quieter. It... More

On arriving at the hotel I was quite impressed by the location and friendliness of staff. The rooms looked lovely at the offset. It was only at midnight as I was ready to call it a day that I discovered the bed had been slept in already and to add insult to injury the underlay was visibly spotted with a... More

Wi_Fi good, good service in bar, room clean and good amenities. Nice Lobby, good staff, steaks well cooked. Well situated near collins street, quiet room. Only issue is that room fel stuffy. Not sure if aircon was pulling air in (it was very noisy) or just recirculating it. Felt a bit flat in morning.

I have stayed here a couple of times, most recently this week. The good things about this hotel are is it very central and so is a good base to walk to theaters and restaurants from. However, it can be very noisy (rubbish collections at 4am, sirens and so on). The wifi is prettify average, the bar and restaurant are... More

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.
