This hotel has alot going for it, but overall the location is what makes it. Centrally located within the Melbourne CBD it offers reasonable value for money and friendly service. The rooms are a little old in terms of the building, however they are fit out in a modern way, and are very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable, however the bedroom was a little noisy at night as our room was located directly above the the air conditioning/hotels extraction fan system. The room was very spacious, and nice however the bathroom was quite old and looked as though it was starting to show it's age and in need of a refurbishment. We also utilized the city parking deal that the hotel has with the local parking lot. It's a short walk across the road to the underground parking lot, and its a little expensive overnight, but its what you've come to expect from Melbourne city parking. Overall I would recommend it for anyone looking to stay in the CBD however I would only stay if you get a great deal compared to other hotels.
