The Mint (used to be called Mint Rhapsody) is perfectly positioned in Melbourne for me, close to the city but far enough away that it is easy to get transport to/from.
The hotel is quite new, I think around 5 years & I have been staying there since it opened. It costs around $129 for basic room. The rooms vary in size and layout some seem cramped and not unacceptably. Staff are friendly and helpful, parking is $20 /nite which is a lot less than anything in the CBD.
My biggest annoyance (which is the same for any of the newer hotels) is that the bathroom has a tiny amount of bench space, very annoying.
If you book direct with them you get free wifi so worth doing this. Sometimes they have specials for free parking or a room upgrade so watch out of those.
