“Great location”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Hotel is in just a perfect location, convenient if you want to have a taste of the heart of Melbourne. Chinatown is also just a footstep away, which is convenient if you want some late night supper after some drinks.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

If you are booking a hotel to spend lots of time in your room, forget this hotel. If you are booking it for a bed, clean bathroom, and excellent service from the Concierge and front desk, and price then this hotel is for you. My wife and I stayed for a week. We were only in the hotel to sleep and shower and get changed for the next venue/restaurant/wine tour/exploration. The Concierge staff in particular Chris Pappas, are well versed in places to go and how to get there. They even book everything for you, and nothing was too much trouble. Even got a free bottle of wine on our anniversary night!

I really enjoyed my stay there. The location was AMAZING, I loved being at the heart of the city and close to everything. The beds were really comfy and the bathroom was nice, clean and modern. Staff were lovely too. Highly recommended. The only thing was that the TV wasn't great quality.

Very well located hotel in Central CBD at China Town. Rooms are clean and well serviced but modest. I did not try any of the restaurants.
Reception staff and concierge well very friendly and most helpful.
Rate was fare too expensive but was AFL grand final weekend so cant complain.
Would come back again.

Dear RealRick,

Thank for your review, as a Senior Reviewer, we appreciate your honest feedback.

During the period of your stay, as it was during the AFL Grand Final which is one of the busiest weekends for the city, hotels in Melbourne were charging special event rates which are considerably higher then their normal day to day rates. Thank you for being so understanding of the spoecial event rates & we look forward to welcoming you back again.
