The location is the great thing about the hotel. The staff were also very helpful, although i was not impressed when one lift was being worked on, and the other never came after waiting 10 mins and had to walk down from the 7th floor with luggage...

It was also expensive, however a fraction of the other business hotels, so i guess it was good value for money.

The room however was small, pokey, I could hear everything in the rooms around, including someone peeing...:( Everything was dark, and the colour scheme was 70's brown to hide the dirt, not that it was dirty. The shower was fantastic!!!

As per my earlier review, we did indeed return to this hotel. Great location, comfortable, cheap prices. Definitely 'no frills' and you get what you pay for. No free upgrade this time, although we did make use of their parking - reasonably priced and efficient. No complaints at all about this hotel and I must stress that the location is perfect! Will (hopefully) be back for a third stay.

This hotel is in the heart of downtown, giving you access to a lively neighborhood 24/7. It's also very close to China town, so if you fancy some dim sum breakfast, this is the hotel for you.

The hotel is not on the main street so the noise level was reasonable. The room size was pretty standard.

All in all, nothing amazing about the service or the hotel.

I have recently been travelling regularly to Melbourne for business. I usually stay at an Accor hotel and usually I have nothing but praise for the hotels I stay at.
Unfortunately, at my most recent stay at the Welcome, I was given a room that smelt like a smoking den. I left the a/c on for the 3 days I was there, and by the 3rd day, the smell was only just dissipating. In addition, I had "neighbours" that opened and shut their door every hour. Very noisy.

The only down side was there was only one lift working as they were doing work on the other. My room was next to the lift well and they started working on it before 7am on week days - if I was there on holidays I wouldn't have been impressed.
