Reviewed September 26, 2012

We arrived to check-in at the hotel around 11pm at night and requested to for a late check out at the end of our 3 night stay. They were kind enough to let us check out at noon. You could also leave your luggage at the hotel after you have checked out and want to do some last minute shopping!

The hotel is situated in an alley way which is clean and has many cafes and small lunch places, therefore you won't starve!

Security is really good, as you need your hotel key card to enter the main entrance after 10pm and to also take the lift to your room.

We had a king size bed in a spacious room equipped with a tv, fridge, safe, ironing board/iron, mini bar, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer, slippers and bathrobes. Complimentary newspapers are available on request.

The bathroom was equipped with shampoo/conditioner, soap, shower cap, sanitary bags and cotton buds. The room overall is modern, new and clean. There is only a shower and no bath tub.

The airconditioner wasn't working very well and was a little hot at night. The organza curtain had a coat of thick dust which was very odd. the toilet roll holder was about to fall off, that would be our only complaints.

The room was very quiet and you are unable hear your neighbours or the outside traffic.

You are only 1 minute walk from a 7/11 store, pharmacy and alot of places to eat. This was definately value for money and will return on our next visit to Melbourne.

We booked online at the Hotel's website and got better rates than on wotif for a deluxe king room at only $154 for a Saturday night during footy season finals! The room was a reasonable size with a small desk area and two armchairs. The room was very clean and the king bed was very comfy. The walk in shower in the bathroom was massive! Only a minor complaint but the shower rose is quite high and I am not very tall so I couldn't reach it to adjust it. The bathroom has all the normal hotel toiletry amenities except it does not have a body lotion. The hairdryer worked well as did the iron. We ended up dining in the hotel's restaurant Sotto and the meal was quite nice. Nothing fancy, and presentation could be better but the food was fine and service was friendly. My friend and I shared the warm olive & fetta entree which was really nice. All in all if you can't be bothered wandering out for a meal you could do a lot worse than dine here. The decor is a bit uninspiring in the restaurant which is a pity.

We recently stayed at the Causeway 353. We had a corner Studio room on the 7th floor. The room was quite roomy with a reasonable amount of storage space for our luggage. The bed was comfortable, but I found the pillows a tad too soft for me. The bathroom had plenty of shelf space for toiletries, the towels were quite large and it was very clean. The one drawback is the shower over the bath, but there is accommodation available with just the shower apparently. There is an excellent promotional book about places to visit in Victoria, and the city environs, in the rooms. The rooms are very clean and the food in the dining area is quite good, with a variety of food offerings, The one compplaint was the wine list, it was top heavy with New Zealand wines and I believe in supporting Australian producers!

Stayed at this property for 5 nights in mid-Aug and the stay was quite comfortable and nice. After a 14hr flight we arrived early morning around 5am and we could not check -in, when we requested, the staff were quite understanding and made arrangements for us to check-in at 7am. The room was spacious and clean. The best part of the hotel is its location. It is close to most of the shopping areas, restaurants and attractions. The nearest railway station is Flinders street railway station which is just 5-8 mins walk, just next to Federation Square ( the melbourne information center) and the city circle tram station(the free tourist tram). It is also just 20mins walk to Melbourne cricket ground and Rod laver arena. This place is ideal for all those who want to stay within the CBD limits and close to everything.

This hotel is very well located, close to shopping and Degreaves lane breakfast scene. The rooms are moderate in both standard and size, but more than adequate, as the low price is the attractive feature here. Concierge and check in ver fine. Don't bother with breakfast, unless you like sitting in a bunker surrounded by broken kitchen appliances and muggles!

Room Tip: Get a room away from the lift well, and the adjacent laneway

Great location. Quiet, clean with helpful staff. It has everything you need - robes, slippers, toiletries, hair dryer, safe, room service and good bed. The price is very reasonable for what you get. Room service was fast and good quality. Breakfast was Ok but better options in the laneway where the hotel is located. Would stay here when next in Brisbane. Taxi driver did not know it so best to have address handy once you find 353 Little Collins there is a green sign and it was easy to find.

also used as storage junk area
Dirty plates etc were stored on trolley next to food area not great
Then on checking out my bill was charged $15.00 for breakfast that was included in accomodation package
