Can't really say anything bad about this hotel, neither there is anything good about this hotel too.
Being in the center of the Melbourne CBD, particularly on Swanton Street is the only strength that this hotel has.
The room was quite shabby and the food was nothing to shout about.
My second encounter in Australia for a hotel that only cover it's shower partition partially.
Just couldn't understand why.
Why can't it cover fully as to keep the water in where it is suppose to be instead of "spreading" it around the bathroom?
If location is what is needed, then here is the right place.
Else, there are other hotels in the vicinity that can be considered.
