First, the good things. Located on Spenser street, the hotel is just across the road from the Southern Cross station. So for the rail travelleres, that's a definite plus. Getting to the centre of where all the action is, The Federation Square or thereabouts, you'll need to change trams a couple of times. So if you're okay with spending say about 20 dollars more than what you pay here, you may be better off picking something on Flinders street or Swanston street, where tram access is much better.
The hotel room itself is comfortable but quite sparse. You have the basic facilities, so no complaints there, but it's just the way the room's been done up. Rather cold and bare. My room, though,was overlooking the Etihad stadium except that there was a docklands construction site in the foreground and that doesn't really make a pretty picture if you plan to look out of your window. Overall, an average place. I'd probably pick another place if I go visiting again.
