“Smallish but very modern. Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2007

Stayed here based on the reviews posted on Tripadvisor. I stayed for 2 nights while visiting Melbourne and we booked via wotif.com.au as they had great rates.

This place is at the top end (financial district end) of Collins St. I normally prefer to stay on the other side of the CBD but the walk to Bourke St Mall and Swanston didn't take long and it's all downhill.

They gave us a room on the top level (level 18) so we had fantastic views of the city. The room was smallish but very modern and had everything you could need - including a mini fridge, stovetop, microwave and dishwasher if you needed it. The only downside was the tiny sink in the bathroom made it hard to brush your teeth as the shelf is about the same width and it's directly above the sink so it's hard to get your head under the shelf to rinse your mouth out!

  • Liked — Modern and cheap
  • Disliked — tiny sink in bathroom and the reception area is confusing to find at first
  • Stayed August 2007, traveled as a couple

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2007

Stayed here for 3 nights with my 2 daughters in the 2bed cosmo apartment.
The rate was very good and included a good breakfast. Juice, yoghurt, fruit, cereals, toast, scrambled eggs, bacon etc
The room was clean and spacious. Others have commented on the quirky bathroom sink and I agree, but it was no problem in the scheme of things.
Privacy could be an issue for some (not for a mum and 2 daughters) as the bedrooms had sheer curtains separating them from the lounge room. However, there was plenty of privacy in the bathroom between the 2 bedrooms. this appeared to be an issue with some of the other rooms in previous reviews.
There is a McDonalds next door (never got there) and a pharmacy where you can buy your tram tickets.
The hotel is in a great location, very spacious and clean and reasonably priced (we paid $219 p.n. with breakfast).
