Stayed twice at this hotel. It's in a great location - right in the city centre. About 8 blocks walk from Queen Vic Markets, about 20 mins walk to Brunswick Street. It's a clean, modern, funky hotel with a bit of difference and novelty. I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on both stays - plenty of room, large comfortable bed, hot rainwater shower with great pressure, lovely selection of toiletries and a few other freebies such as the welcome snack bag with chocolates, and the take-away day bag (you'll find it in the cupboard). The room had a small refrigerator and in-room safe (with default settings changed). My first stay was in room 107 - just above the delivery roller-door so a bit of noise with the door and staff congregating/talking below, which traveled up to the room easily. Second stay was on the fifth floor, and much quieter. Traveled by taxi from the airport ($50 one way), so can't comment on car parking arrangements. Free! happy hour drinks a great idea, free newspapers in the foyer, and a free muffin/pastry breakfast available. Lots of reviewers also mention the (also free) coffee machine in the foyer too - a great and welcome idea. Umbrellas available from reception if Melbourne puts on it's usual wet weather! Nearby you'll find several 7eleven stores, and right next door is a great boutique beer place. Would recommend and would stay again.
