Close to trams the Skybus drops off and will do pick ups which the reception will book for you.
Simple basic rooms but if you are busy all day and just need a quiet place to rest at night this is perfect. There are a range of resturants and food shops nearby.

Staff have always been friendly and helpful including the middle of the night when my flight was altered and I suddenly had to organise to get to the airport. The lady on reception even made me a cup of tea, rang the Skybus and booked me a taxi to get me to the station to catch a Skybus so I got to the airport on time, while I stressed out getting ready.

I have stayed here a total of three times and each time the service has been the same.

Room Tip: I have been on the ground floor and 2nd floor and all are the same.

We chose based on Trip Advisor ratings and were very happy. The rooms were neat and tidy, the staff helpful and the location very conveniently close to shops, restaurants and a tram stop. They even gave us free coffee vouchers and free Internet vouchers.

We booked a Superior Queen room for 4 nights in March. The hotel was chosen partly on reviews from this site and also the location/cost. I am pleased to report that we were not disappointed.
The check-in was quick and simple, the hotel staff friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
The room was clean and tidy with a large bed, TV, drinks facilities and a small-ish walk in wardrobe.
The bathroom was also very clean and had good supplies of towels, hand wash, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel.
Victoria Market is only a 10minute stroll away and the central station a further 15minute stroll; however the trams are regular and simple to use with a stop very near to the hotel.
All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel and should our travels take us to Melbourne again, I will be booking The Miami.

This is a great place to stay, most things are walking distance and the staff were friendly and helpful. I liked how thay had a room to hold your bags while you waited to check in and also when you checked out. I like the free coffee cards although we didn't use them. I would stay here again. Overall it was great.

I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay, hopefully that means we will see you again.
I'm disappointed you didn't get to use your coffee cards, our coffee, which is made by Sensory Lab is sensational....
Hopefully you can try it when next you visit.
Thanks

We stayed here as it was the best priced room in Melbourne during the time we booked. Room was very standard but big and comfy and was really clean. There was also a kitchen which was a bonus, as we were travelling it was nice to save money by buying food and making it ourselves, and there was shops very nearby. Wi-Fi was available but very expensive for short amount of time, the library over the road is free and the cafe's will give a code also. Staff were always helpful and good at giving direction. The only downside with this hotel was how far it was to walk to the city centre of Melbourne (CBD). The walk is a simple one, but a bit of a pain when we walked to and from each day. There are trams into the city from there, but they work out expensive unless you are making lots of journeys. So I only did long journeys on them to such as St. Kilda.

Room Tip: Certain levels have things such as Kitchens and other attributes, pick one that suits you. Otherwise...

I can't speak highly enough of The Miami Hotel. Despite checking in late in the evening, we were greeted very helpfully and politely by a member of staff. Having booked a basic room on hostelworld.com (which offer a far cheaper rate for the same room for the record!) we went into our room only to find that we had an ensuite, TV, fridge, tea, coffee, air-conditioning etc. Even though we had paid a hostel price, we had received a hotel quality. Melbourne, whilst not as expensive as Sydney, can still be pricey and sometimes you can look at up to $40 for a dorm bed. So to pay far less for a private, double-room with ensuite was nothing short of perfect. On arrival we received help with maps and information of what to do in the city and surrounding areas, as well as voucher for a free hot drink from the cafe attached to the building, which was a nice touch! The tours that were recommended to us were for The Great Ocean Road and Philip Island, which if you are interested in doing, they are offering a superb price in comparison to other sellers for the exact same tour, on the exact same bus as the more expensive trips! Overall, the room was spotlessly clean, the customer service was one of the best we have ever received and the location was excellent - only a 20 minute walk to the CBD and about a 10-minute walk to the Victoria Markets, while being next door to many restaurants, ATMs, supermarkets and so on. Very satisfied with our stay, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone in need of a place to stay for a few days in Melbourne.

Stayed for 3 nights in a double room with en-suite facilities. Room was not large and we had a fair bit of luggage, but having been on the road for over a month we were getting used to dealing with things like that. The room was pretty basic as you might expect for such a budget hotel but everywhere was very clean. Our shower room was really good with plenty of hot water. The laundry came in handy too.
The location of the hotel was a bonus. Places to eat and buy food a short stroll and easy to walk to the free tram.
Top it off with great staff and there you are! Definitely recommended.
