    Very good value for money with a great convenient location close to some great attractions. I will definitely stay here next time I visit Melbourne. It's not really fancy but very comfortable and clean.

    On arrival this hotel appeared promising and I was looking forward to my stay. One staff member on reception was unhelpful and bordering on rude. For the money I paid, the room was a huge disappointment with marked and scuffed walls and the clean sheets...More

    I couldn't believe the value I got for just $66/night. This was the best deal value I can remember from the last 10 years of travel in Australia. The rooms have recently been completely refurbished using a particularly intelligent design. For the room rate and...More

    Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
    tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
    feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
    city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
    throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
    never quite know what you’ll find around the next
    corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

    Yes, $50 is charged to your credit card, and supposed to be canceled on departure. 3.5weeks later, I'm still fighting for my refund, and staff are very unhelpful.
