“Great location and good value”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great location and good value for money. We bought a couple of months in advance which made it cheaper. Situated in Little Collins Street, only a few hundred metres from Elizabeth Street, meant we were very close to shops and good food. A tiny pizza restaurant, recently rated one of the best in the CBD, was right next door and great breakfast and lunch cafés were in the same lane. We didn't bother with the continental breakfast included in our hotel price because it looked fairly ordinary compared with what was nearby. Room was on the small side but quite adequate with comfortable bedding. The only catch was the air-conditioning being centrally controlled. Set at 20.5 most of the time it was a little on the warm side. Would definitely stay here again.

Location can be a bit difficult to find, but the location is handy, easy to walk to Collins street and access to many different laneway eating places. Breakfast is basic continental breakfast, but is sufficient for our needs, and since we were given a large room on the fifth floor, it was a good value for what we paid. Unfortunately, wifi is not free, which we think management should improve, perhaps by giving limited access, before a payment is required.

Very clean room. Lovely and quiet as there is no traffic noise. Hotel is in centre of the city. Staff were very helpful. Price was amazing and it also included a fantastic breakfast. My friends loved it there too. We will all be booking this hotel when we return to Melbourne.

Enjoyed our stay. Staff friendly and helpful.Location is fantastic for getting around Melbourne.
We were particularly impressed that gluten free bread was available with a toaster specifically allocated for gluten free at breakfast. With breakfast included felt good value for money.
Room clean and neat, king bed comfortable giving good nights rest.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was superb with most things were walking distance away. The laneway is mostly closed on the weekend so dont expect to get up early for breakfast there! When places were open they were very good - bagels, coffee etc. The room was very clean and comfortable, great bathroom, firm and comfy bed. My husband's only complaint was that he couldnt see the sky from the windows as they are deep set and the next building is close by. The included breakfast is very basic - boxed cereals and toast, some melon, yoghurt etc, even some salami and cheese to make the toast more substantial. Plenty to keep you going if you want to save some money. Overall I was very pleased with the hotel and would definitely stay there again,
