This hotel was easy to get to, nice quiet location just 10 minutes walk from the CBD, off street parking, reception was very friendly, rooms were decent size and clean, pretty basic bathroom and kitchen but everything worked, great price for our whole group for 2 nights! Would stay again!

This hotel is situated in east Melbourne, It has loads of "old" buildings. It is walking distance to Cook Cottage. You can walk or take a tram from this apartment. The service apartment had a lovely and helpful receptionist. The rooms were great and we had no issues. The parking is a little tricky if you driving a big car... More

My family and i booked here because of the close proximity to the MCG as we traveled from the country and were going to the footy. As i said..its clean and has all the usual things most accommodation offers these days. The only negative is the parking...if you have a 4wd or large car you would not be able to... More

Stayed here for 7 nights with my boyfriend and we felt that it was pretty decent given the price we paid (we had a special long stay rate, for the studio apartment with 1 queen bed). We took the Skybus from the airport ($19 per pax per way), and there was a free transfer once we reached Southern Cross. We... More

We stayed one night as we were running in the Run4TheKids the next day. Only 1.5km from the start/finish, so easy to walk there and back. The room was clean, neat and tidy, with comfortable double bed. A single bed was also in the room. No great view from our room, as there is another building behind it. Facilities included... More
