“Clean Stay with Cube Apartment”
Reviewed November 14, 2010

The apartment entrance is located within a small alley in Exploration lane. Easy tp get to with City tram & Metro station. The apartment was very clean & looks pretty new to me. Comfy beds & a good living space with a modern kitchen. Would not hesitate to go back on my next trip.

The only thing to be careful is that SkyBus doesnt do hotel pickup/drop off from this apartment directly, which their website indicated likewise. You have to walk 3-5min to Marriot Hotel around the corner for the pickup lugging your luggage. Would advise others to arrange the airport transfer with the hotel directly as they have direct transfer that you didnt need to change bus & pick up direct at the apartment entrance at a slightly lower rate then SkyBus. Everything was perfect, except the misleading info on SkyBus website!

Great place to stay, clean, newish and had style. Rooms a little small but well appointed for a 6 night stay. Good kitchen facilities although only two lots of crockery/cutlery which meant lots of dish washing (was a dish washer though).

Had a tenth floor room and saw the sunsets from the balcony. Daily servicing. Friendly, helpful staff especially in a medical emergency. Fabulous location for trams, taxis, or walking to local areas. Felt safe in the area at all times. Reception closes at 10 p.m. so need to remember this.

Would highly recommend this place for a stay.

We had a couple of nights here and had looked at Trip Advisor reviews. We were very pleased with the accommodation, staff service, location and amenities. Would stay again next time in Melbourne.

Cube was the right choice for our stay in Melbourne. It's located in a relatively quiet street in the central area, very close to Chinatown, Greek district, Collins street, museums and the free circle tram. The building itself is modern and has a nice feel. Our room was clean and had a stylish, modern decor. The kitchen was very well-equipped (it even had a dishwasher!). Room service was efficient, we had our towels changed every day. The front desk staff was very helpful. We haven't tried the breakfast at their cafe-restaurant but the sandwiches looked so yummy! Very nice place.

We highly recommend The Cube. The room are quite small but excellent value for money. We were on the 13th floor and had a wonderful view. The room was extremely clean it had everything we wanted. I was very impressed with the security, its a card system in the lift, you cant get off at any other floor. Breakfast was lovely, I was surprised at the lost cost $16 for 2 cooked meals and too much for me to eat. Staff couldn't do enough for us and greeted us every time they saw us. A very quiet hotel, great value for money. I am pretty fussy where I stay (I have walked out of hotels) but this one I recommend to anyone. Well done Cube staff and thanks for a great stay

The Cube was exactly what we were looking for at the right price. We could walk to the CBD in 10mins and the City Circle Tram line was a 2 minute walk. Helpful knowledgeable staff; quiet, clean rooms with a self service option if needed. Highly recommended.

It's a bit hard to find, but Cube Hotel is a great place to stay. It's new and has a good vibe. Rooms have a different feel to the standard boring hotel rooms. Our balcony was about 3m long and had a good view of city skyline. Balcony wide enough to stand on but you wouldn't sit out there as it's too narrow. The city is right there - 50m away and that was perfect. Only slight hassle was no parking, but you can park just around the corner at the Wesley church. $12 day or $7 a day on weekends. If you're arriving Friday for the weekend, pay by the day and you'll save a fair bit of money.

There is a mini kitchen with microwave, cooking utensils and dishwasher. There were 2 of everything in the cutlery and crockery count. There was a very amusing list of the cost to the guest of replacing any missing or broken items. Eg., one chinese porcelain spoon $10! One teaspoon $10! Bedhead $400. The shower screen was a bargain at $500. Entertainment provided by way of this list. There was a big TV with limited channels.
Supremely comfortable bed. Bathroom well sized. Why don't hotels have toilet brushes any more?
Extremely well soundproofed. Heaps of storage space in the room.
The cafe/breakfast area downstairs looked relaxing and had a good menu and good prices but we didn't try it.
Service at reception was hit and miss. Friendly and helpful but didn't know if there was a spare Nokia phone charger, didn't know where a loan umbrella might be - nothing major. We were allowed to take our bicycles up to the room to put on the veranda - the receptionist wasn't sure about this one but we were very happy about it and would return to this hotel just because they let us do that. Thanks to the nice staff member for this.
