“Ok but not recommended. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

This was a highly recommended hotel. However not that nice. Flat sheets no fitted, Aircon not working (temp sets itself to higher) , really average breakfast,no milk for a cup of tea. TV reception terrible. The only nice thing was the staff were lovely and kind.

Stayed March 2014

Stayed here on business a few times. Good location in the heart of the CBD close to Southbank, Fed Sq etc. Cheaper rate parking in underground car par at Galleria. Small rooms but OK for 1 night stay, OK value at $129 online. However, no free internet for guests - why can I travel all over Asia in cheaper hotel and get free internet and in Australia you generally have to pay for it. Didn't have breakfast, lots of café options in Galleria and outside in Little Collins Street.

Room Tip: Twin felt a bit pokey, no doubles/queen/kings available when I booked.

Great location, rooms are clean, functional, a little tired looking, handy gym and great steam room. On arrival customer service on front desk was terrible, no welcome just processing. I asked where the shops were and was told all around me, I said yes but where's the main part I was told 'your in it' I said please I'm asking you where the main shop area is the lady said which shop. I said don't worry about it I'll google it :-(( seriously couldn't be bothered to do anything more than check us in.

Was absolutely disappointing on all levels! Staff not friendly. Small dark dingy rooms. Definitely not four star. Breakfast was bad. Not even a movie channel in those grey cells they call rooms. Didn't receive our newspaper in the mornings. Way over priced for what we got. Never stay there again & would never recommend it to others!!!

What can I say....this hotel is the best....excellent location with a short walk to the Burke Street Mall and Collins Street where you can catch a tram to the MCG or the Crown Casino. Right in the middle of Melbourne CBD and access to everywhere you need to go. Not a good view but who cares....you only there to sleep. Rooms are small but comfortable beds and room is serviced every day. There is a microwave in the room if you feel like something to eat and can heat it up. One of the best and cheaper hotels I have stayed in. Definitely will be staying there again. I rate it a 5 star for me.

I loved this hotel. It was centrally located & walking distance to pretty much everything. The room & bathroom were a good size & clean and included a fridge, safe, & complimentary tea, coffee, & a bottle of water. We also got free continental breakfast with our room. There was a selection juices, pastries, breads, cereals, ham, cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, & hot chocolate. The pastries actually come out warm from the kitchen. A pretty good variety for being "continental". I especially enjoyed the chocolate danish & raisin bread. YUM!! My only small complaint is they charge $2 for 1/2 hr of WIFI, i know that is SUPER cheap but at that price shouldn't it just be free??? The hotel also has a small workout & steam room. Nice to have that option if you aren't too tired from sight seeing all day. There are also quite a few cute cafes in the alley way where this hotel is located but i was too stuffed from the FREEEEEEE breakfast to try any of them. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I make it back to the area. Really great value for what you get.

Room Tip: Didn't see other rooms so don't know how you can choose the best room. But a small tip is to...

I was really surprised to find this hotel so clean, tidy and stylish given the good rate we got for it! It's right in the centre of Melbourne, an easy walk to the station. As our room faced another building we had no noise at all from outside. It is rare to find city centre hotels so comfortable and nice. Really can't recommend enough,
