Stayed here for four nights in November. Arrived and the room smelled really awful, plus the 'tea and coffee making facility' was a cup left on the bench. I went down to enquire about this, and eventually was given a kettle. I also asked for a new room which they also did after some explanation - so I guess I could say the staff were helpful, if a little slow off the mark to get the point...
The people on my floor were loud and smoking drugs, and the new room smelt better but I still didn't feel it was clean. The location was further from town than the impression I got from the website (and the trams were not easy to navigate for someone who has never been to melbourne and unfamiliar with the suburbs). I mention this because even though I realise this is out of the control of the hotel, comparing this to where I stayed in Sydney where the staff were so helpful in terms of directions and being friendly, the difference was huge.
Overall my stay was not disastrous but not really enjoyable, and I just could not recommend. Stay somewhere else.
