My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. We chose the hotel because of the great location and reasonable price and its within walking distance of everything we wanted to be close to in the city. The room was ok, it was what I'd expected from the previous reviews and photos. We had a standard double room on the 10th floor. It was dated and is in need of some tlc. The room seemed clean, but there was hair still in the bathtub which put me off straight away about having a bath during my stay. There was some loud banging on and off during our stay which started around 10am most days which disturbed our sleep ins after a few late nights out, there must have been some work going on in the building. Our room was also right next to the utility closet, so we'd often hear the door banging a lot early in the morning which was a bit frustrating.
There is a 7 eleven close to the hotel which was handy, and the Laksa Bar on little Lonsdale St was amazing and cheap. You're close to Trunk on Exhibition St for lunch or dinner, and there are some jazz club close by down Bennett's Lane. You're also very close to the yummy choices to eat in Chinatown and a short walk to the trams.
If you want a central base in the city at a reasonable rate then yes I would recommend staying here. Just remember you're paying a reasonable rate for a reason. If you're after a relaxing, comfortable, modern stay in a city hotel where you plan to spend a lot of time, then I would avoid it. It all depends on what you're priorities are.
