Location was near the Yarra river front, where there are a lot of restaurants and bars. It is around 5 minutes walk from Flinders station across the river, so transportation is very accessible and you are near several points of interests. There is no free internet, but there is free internet in some of the malls and bars nearby. There's a food court in the nearby Southgate mall (where there is free internet). The room is clean, decorated in warm orange-y tones. The rooms are ensuite, have a flat screen TV and a microwave/small sink facilities. We didn't cook but the microwave was useful. There are also coin-operated laundry facilities on another floor. We took the Skybus (http://skybus.com.au/) to and from the airport (booked online to save some $ for the family rate).
We stayed Easter weekend and they only had "green cleaning" services during that weekend, which meant no extensive cleaning of rooms. I found that a bit weird for a hotel to be short staffed on a holiday weekend, but we weren't very messy anyway so I had no complaints.
Anyway we enjoyed our stay and would recommend to stay next time.
