If you are a regular visitor to Melbourne and just want a place to stay without full hotel service, this is the place. It is only 10-15 minutes by tram from Flinders Street, take number 3, 3a, 5, 6, 16, 64, 67 to stop 25. You can reach Chapel St easily using number 6 and St Kilda on 3a or 16. Stayed for 4 days the week before Easter. No trouble booking last minute on one of the websites.
The place is virtually brand new and the rooms have been prepared to a good standard. Ultimatley the decor can be easily changed in the future unlike some hotels which stay dated due to timber and intricate features. The unfinished concrete ceiling is nifty and not something you dwell on after having the first look. The kitchenette section is there if you need it and the full fridge works more effective than those bar fridges. Great for your drinks and breakfast supplies. Studio rooms are good for one or two people. If you are a person who spends more than 2-3 daylight hours in a hotel room then this place is not for you, on holiday get out and enjoy, on business you are not really in the room during the day. Bed great, air con good, hand basin too small and they should provide a loo brush!
Mint staff are very nice and they are there to manage the guests, ultimatley they did not design the place but are the management company, so when reviewing be mindful of that, a pillar on a balcony is the architects fault.
