Great location to the university, library & china town area. Easy access to the free city tram no. 35 & shopping areas. Easy stroll to the Town hall, Art Gallery, Federation square or Flinders street station

Excellent location to shops and restaurants, The room was quiet and very comfortable. As I had a car I needed to park about two blocks away but this was at an excellent rate through the hotel and for 24 hours.

Hotel is situated right in the CBD of Melb. In Little Bourke St, Half a block from a good bottle shop, a block from excellent restaurants and has a Haighs Chocolate Shop at groud level - what more could you ask?

Staff were helpful and friendly, room clean and good restaurant for breakfast. Most attractions in central Melb all within easy walking distance.

Have stayed there before and would do so again as long as the price is right.

The room is a bit crampish and so is the toilet. Not for holiday. would be okay for business trip, full meetings during the day and you just need to pass you night. Reasonable breakfast before your meeting.

I was worried prior to arriving how decent the hotel would be due to the last minute booking and very reasonable price tag. However was pleasantly suprised, decent room for the price, great location, comfortable bed and great shower!!! Only downsides are they are upgrading the lift so there can be a 2 to 4 minute wait for a lift and the fridge in the rooms is very noisy which can disturb sleep. Nothing major though and all in all a very pleasant stay.
I will visit again :)

Excellent service in this very central and easy to find hotel. I had a lovely (if a little small) room, which was comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet was spacious and very tasty, and the staff service impeccable and very helpful. My only complaint was one of access – there was only one elevator working, during the time I was there, which was often very crowded with long waits. As I was travelling with an infant and pram, we couldn't use the stairs even had we wanted to. I was attending a convention at the hotel and the convention rooms had limited lift access (only by staff elevator), which surprised me, as did the fact there were NO baby change facilities in the hotel reception or convention area!

Relatively minor complaints, almost entirely made up for by the excellent service and location.

This hotel is in a great location. Easy to get to from public transport and by car
It is clean however one of the lifts are being repaired. Taking a very long time. So request a bed as close to ground floor as possible. Stairs are far quicker than lift so don't want to have to climb too many. Also you must ask for things included in the package things like the daily paper that is included but unless you specifics ask it won't be delivered even if you are a regulars guest
