Great location, you cant go wrong. Also close to transport and shops on Collins st. And Fed Sq. In a nice quiet laneway.
Excellent spot!
Things we didnt like was the rooms are cramped. Also, as another traveller pointed out its not airy. If you're claustrophobic, you wont like it. Wi-fi didnt work in the hotel room and internet usage was quite expensive.
We may not wanna come back here as there are a lot of other hotels to try.
I Will recommend for a nice, clean, cheap hotel, though.

Stayed here again beginning of September with my friend. Arriving about 10.30 were were able to check in straight away. Love the location, the staff are very friendly and helpful (we had no remote control for the TV and one was brought up to our room within minutes) and the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Included breakfast is a great start to the day, no need to leave the hotel to find somewhere to eat. Will definitely be back again.

Hotel is very clean. Staff is friendly. I managed to have an early check-in to the hotel at 10am. Location is great, very convenient. You can find sushi bar, western food and even Asian cuisine just a stone throw away from this hotel. It is also within walking distance to China Town & Federation Square. Breakfast is simple but it’s fine. I won’t hesitate to stay there again when I am in Melbourne.

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Stay away asthmatics or those who are revolted by passive smoking.

The rooms are tiny with poor ventilation and windows that don't open. And guess what.. they allow you to smoke! We were greeted into our 6th floor hotel room by a haze of smoke and a dirty looking ashtray. I can't believe that in this day and age where you can't smoke in bars or clubs, you can smoke in a poorly ventilated shoe box like this one.

The staff were not helpful. Advising me that the default room is a smoking room and that they couldn't give us another room.

Rolling around in bed felt like rolling around in an ashtray. The pillows were riddled with day old cigarette smoke. We tried everything to get the smoke out of the room, but the thermostat on 15 degrees, jarred the front door open, but as it turned out, it got smokier as the ventilation system was just pumping smoke from nearby rooms into ours.

Judging by the noises we heard, the cliental are there for an all nighter root. The walls are paper thin. Avoid this hotel at all costs.

Excellent hotel...Great staff ..Even when we arrived to find our internet booking with booking.com had not gone through, nothing was a hassle and for the mild panic that caused we were instantly upgraded with no questions and no hassles. The rooms were neat and very tidy and the beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. I would come back to this location again and again.
