I would love to give this apartment hotel a five rating but a few things let it down.
I stayed for five nights as a business traveller and picked this hotel because of the free wifi as I needed to work while I was there. Unfortunately, the wifi cut out after the first day (Friday) and could only be accessed from the lobby. Staff brought me a router and set it up in my room but it only worked for a short time. After that you had to take your laptop or other device down to the lobby to access wifi. It couldn't be fixed until a weekday however, even by Tuesday wasn't fixed. Very frustrating!
Unfortunately, when on thing goes wrong you look for other problems. Blinds were a bit fiddly and I agree with one other comment, that the a/c and TV were in a bad position. Could do with more than one bin in the room (only in bathroom). I had a broken ironing board but that was replaced. Could do with a business centre.
However, on a positive note the staff were great and very helpful. I liked the convenience of having a kitchenette.
Good location if you want to be close to the Victoria markets and Flagstaff train station. 5-10 minute walk to Melbourne Central shops and restaurants.
