Let me say that I have stayed in Melbourne on many occasions and am always up for a new accommodation experience.
From check in to check out this place was just average. Not bad, but certainly not great. We had to knock repeatedly on the door to be let in before getting our keys. On many occasions, we were ignored by reception until we actually tried to engage them in conversation.
Check in was difficult, as the girl on reception didn't have a grasp of the English language. She had to call in her supervisor to help us.
Upon entry to the room, we couldn't get our TV to work, the continental breakfast hadn't been left in the fridge and we couldn't get soap out of the dispenser. To their credit, upon calling reception, the supervisor had these things fixed within 5 minutes.
I slept quiet well as I wear earplugs, but my friend was woken one night by someone screaming and the next night by the strong smell of smoke (we were on a non smoking floor).
As I said, it wasn't too bad, but I have stayed in a lot better places in Melbourne for less money. The location is good, right in Chinatown, but it is just a bit bland. I feel it was let down by the people working at the front desk. They all just seemed devoid of personality and it was an effort to assist you in any way. Would I stay here again? No. I like Little Bourke Street, but far prefer either the Crossley Hotel or Punt Hill.
