The first trick was to find the entrance. Then the there was the issuing of a single towel and one swipe key. Next came trying to work out the entry to the room and how to access power. We consoled ourselves with the fact that we are old! Anyway the towel and swipe key sorted out we settled in. The room was compact but all that was needed for a short stay. The location is excellent and within walking distance of the CBD, Lygon street eateries and Vic markets. Being close to Melb Uni there are many cheap eateries along Swanston street. The Tune is a great choice for a couple. There is a coffee shop, good public areas and laundry. Staff mostly friendly and helpful. We got a great deal through Play Melbourne. Would recommend.
