Spent few days with my relatives in Melbourne. This time I chose a small boutique style hotel
instead of main brands in the city.
Location is very good at chapel street in South Yarra , there are lots restaurants, cafes and
boutiques for dining or shopping. More, it just one block away from train station or take a taxi
to downtown for under $20.-
If you don't want a big breakfast , their restaurant offer a simple breakfast. For just $10.-
you can have juice,fruit,cereal and toasts .
Now, there are two areas I need to point them out which is no good !
First, their lights in the room are not bright enough , the ceiling down lights are in a bad position
and their table lamps or desk lamps are not bright enough for reading at all !
Bathroom- usually should have 2 sets of towels ( body,hair and facial) but this hotel only got
2 body towels.
Finally , their staffs are very helpful and friendly.
