I was looking to check in to a place like the Stamford, Melbourne, but at $280 per night it was a budget breaker. I searched the sites and came up with Jasper Hotel, in a great part of town with access to everything and it looked good the reviews were good.
I am very satisfied. It is boutique "ee" hotel with 8 floors painted different colors. I got room 610 overlooking the Victoria Market. The view was excellent and the windows open totally to let in the winter cool air. It was quiet all the way around both inside and out. Ice ( a key thing for me ) was available upon demand.
The room was clean ( real clean ) well designed and comfortable, a good value. Internet is WiFi but very very expensive ($58 bucks for 8 hours 1 machine!!) OUCH.. the front desk clerk said it was free next door at MickyDs..which does not work for me because I work work work...and need it in the room .. they do give you internet for $30 bucks..but only 300MB of download and your are DEAD. That sucks..but that cost them one star here. The front desk was super friendly and helpful..but there is only one person to do everything..so if you need staff..this is not the place.
The Jasper restaurant was a fantastic breakfast ( only $8 bucks) for full American egg type breakfast..and the coffee EXCELLENT..really well done and again good service and super modern and clean. I did not have lunch there, but the menu looked great and the food is excellent.
This hotel is clean and fresh and for $132 or something like that .. what a deal. The Central Station is a few minutes walk and the trams are out front. There is a University here and most of the population is Chinese and Japanese up here so the restaurants are all asian. I had a fantastic dinner at the ROSE BBQ Chinese just a block away, with seating on the sidewalk (it was packed) and the food was blow-your-eyeballs-out good..again $9.50 and I had a feast made for two average Chinese folks or..as I am .. one typical American.
I have pictures but without internet cannot upload them from my Iphone here..so that sucks. But otherwise..great value, friendly, clean, modern, fast elevators..ice is instant .. and views over the market great. I would come back anytime!
