“Great location, helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Great location at a great price. Really helpful staff.
Was disappointed to pay extra for a room with a bath & the 'hot' water was barely even lukewarm. Shower was no better in the morning.
King size room is generous in size and well appointed.
I'd return but pray that the hot water temperature is put up a notch or two...

Locatd down an alleyway, with poor signage, and nowhere to park to unload.

Female Receptionist abrupt, gabbled, not interested or in the slightest bit welcoming or warm.

Room on small side, just adequate, comfortable bed but sheets too small so didn't tuck in.

Bedside light not working. Bathroom very small. Plug missing from sink.

Breakfast poor choices, another surly receptionist.

I would not return or advise anybody to stay there.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

The location of the Causeway 353 is fanastic. On a busy laneway between Little Collins Street and Collins Street. The room was comfortable, although the bed was a little hard. The breakfast was the same each day but ok. The area has a lot of cafes, resturants and eateries. The free bus and free tram is also easy to catch nearby.

Great location, short walk to nearby malls and tram stops. Room was spacious and clean. Comfortable king size bed. Breakfast was very basic better off eating elsewhere. Alot of Cafes across the road and next door where you can get great coffee and breakfast. If you want value for money at a central location this is the place to stay. We will be back where again this year.

The location and price of this hotel won me over and I was surprised and pleased by the modern, classy hotel I arrived at. We had lots of family visiting Melbourne for a birthday and as I'd organised the hotel, I was really glad that it met everyone's varied expectations. The only improvement would have been if I got a spa room which some others in my party did! Jealous!!! Thanks for the clean and comfortable stay.

The City of Melbourne is agreat City where four NZ friends meet at this "hidden gem" in the heart of Melbourne in Mid May ...4 delightful days with all attractions only minutes away, Art Gallery, Victoria Markets, Flinders Station, SHOPS...cafes and restaurants..and yes Melbourne"s Colional Tram dinner delight out to St.Kidas and back...Casino for a look see the list goes on ... Rooms where very clean and adequate for our short stay which will be longer next time.....Being so central meant that dinner choices where at our finger tips , continetal breakfast was adequate for our mornings start ...exploring all the above and a lot more ...a great starting point out of town for the 5 day Great Ocean Road trip through to Adelaide however that is another story to be told at another point in time AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGG.

Room Tip: Not to high we used the stairs on occasions.
