We contacted this place to enquire about reservations and the email response and online booking was quick and efficient. We paid 125 AU$ a night (June 08).
The room itself was large spacious and clean. We were located on the eight floor which has good views of the Melbourne skyline. I think the lower rooms do not have much of a view. The basic kitchen facilities comprise a fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave and sink/worktop area. Though basic, they really do have significant advantages over a standard hotel room.
A continental breakfast (comprising cereal and toast and OJ) is included and placed in your fridge for you to eat at your leisure each morning. Double glazed windows keep external noise to a minimum. Bathroom was clean with a powerful shower. A minor niggle is that the shower head is fixed to the wall, and this may annoy some people.
On the negative side, rooms close to the lift (rooms ending with 01 e.g. rooms 701 on floor 7, 801 on floor 8 etc) are likely to experience significant noise from the aging lift/elevator infrastructure. Ask for a room away from the lifts. The manager said to us that the lifts were due for an upgrade but didn't seem optimistic that this would be happening any time soon.
Overall the staff are efficient and friendly, and the location in the heart of Chinatown is perfect for anyone looking for a large room in central Melbourne.
