Convenient location, good reception service and $35 valet parking is such a good value for money in such busy city like Melb. Good facilities, nice and clean. Would be better if there is a study lamp for people who need to work on laptop while the family is asleep. Apart from that...perfect!!!

I chose this hotel as it was one of the only ones remaining on Grand Final night that was within my price range and was taking bookings for just tone night. I wasn't expecting much having stayed last February in a small and very tired room. Very pleasantly surprised to have an excellent, refurbished large room. It even has complimentary water, an espresso machine and a milk frother. Just goes to show its worth visiting again, even after a bad experience and hotels.

Good value for money, excellent location - for shopping on bourke street!
Stayed here for 2 nights with my partner and we enjoyed being in such a convenient location. Smallish rooms, clean and served our purpose.
We had the breakfast buffet on every morning of our stay, but when we returned to the hotel after days on walkabout it was often late. Would visit again just for budget value, obviously not for romantic stays.

We enjoyed our stay in Melbourne but would definitely not stay at this hotel again. The room was only ok, the bed was so hard that after the first night we had to keep voltaren on our backs and take pain killers to survive the following 2 nights. The food in the restaurant was shocking and I became very ill with diahroea for 36 hours after eating dinner there destroying my weekend break. We did not eat any further meals at the hotel.
We made arrangements to link to WiFi on our computer but after trying and trying we had to give up and use the Internet Cafe at the hotel.

Pleasantly surprised staying here. I did walk into the room with the initial thought of "oh god..." However after having a bit more of a look the room wasn't bad. Very clean even though furnishings were a bit dated. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location is good and the rooms kept out a lot of the noise. Definitely recommend for those on a budget

We stayed here over two months ago on but found it to be a very pleasant stay , we enjoyed the rooms and the service was great.
A upgrade could be useful but the location was fantastic and close to the things we wanted to see
Verry nice

Brilliant staff, value for money and great location in CBD (and just a very short walk to China Town (and some yummy food there) - but really just a short walk to anywhere in the CBD. Room not large but all we needed and was very clean and comfortable.
I would go back there in a flash for location and value - especially if shopping or sightseeing - For Romantic getaways check out other accommodation options.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and it was perfect - no noise at all.
