I recently stayed here with a group of friends and we specifically chose this hotel for its location and price. It did not fail us in either category. It is in close proximity to shops, restaurants, the MCG, trams and trains. For the competitive price we paid, the rooms were more than adequate. Granted, on our floor we didn't have a view to talk about but other friends on the floor above us had a lovely view of trees and the city streets below. Our room was refurbished, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom, though small, was modern and very clean. Adequate tea/coffee making facilities, ironing board, hairdryer etc. were available. I would recommend asking for a newly refurbished room with a view when booking or checking in. The concierge, as mentioned, was genuinely friendly and very helpful. All staff were attentive and pleasant. My only negative would be that the lifts were incredibly old/slow (or perhaps we were always impatient to explore the fantastic sights of Melbourne!). I would readily stay here again for the reasons I have cited and recommend this hotel to others who are looking for comfortable and affordable accommodation in Melbourne.
