We stayed here for one night at the beginning of Feb for a special occasion. I wouldn't have normally thought of this hotel but it was close by to where we were going and the description said it had been renovated recently so I thought 'why not?'. As other reviewers have noted, the ground floor entrance isn't luxurious by any means but it was still undergoing renovation during our stay so it didn't bother me. Reception area is okay but got packed at check out time.
Our room was down a long, long corridor which was a bit annoying after a long night in heels. I have to say that the corridor itself really could do with some upgrading- it seems to be painted in 'ceiling white' and is very basic. Our room was great. It had windows out to Australia On Collins (rather than the street) which didn't bother me at all- in fact it meant that I had the best night sleep I've ever had in a hotel. No street noise, no hallway noise, no noise from adjacent rooms- it was fantastic.
Location and staff were fantastic. Don't bother paying extra for breakfast- there are tonnes of great cafes around. Just pop in to the Block Arcade next door and you'll have lots of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
