A place just for sleep. Nothing exceptional. But the an excellent location. Close or everything. The main problem is the lift. The hotel only have 2 and too much people, specially when you have to do the check-out. A good point: the lockers, you'll pay a low fee for the lockers.

My wife and I stayed one night during July as it is in town and close to the railway station. The room was clean and ample in size but a bit tired. The toilet is separate from an outside shower. Air conditioning is via a heat pump which is slightly noisy. Our window just faces the building next door but...

As the name suggest the amenities are very basic, but the location is perfect. Its hardly 5 minutes from Flinders Street. Very Nice option if you have limited time in melbourne as many attractions are at walking distance. They charge some 6$ for the lockers on the 1st floor.

I was booked into this hotel as part of a work trip. The entry way is a small hallway that is dirty and dank. Arriving at the lift to the first floor reception I was greeted with filthy, dirty metal lift doors - not a good start. The reception staff appear to all be young, foreign students of Asian origin....

Always reliably clean and tidy, staff are helpful. Have stayed quite a few times and is great if you are on a budget and need a very central location (near Flinders St station and various places to eat).

The hotel was not bad but big whole in wall. Bathroom was too small but room was overall good. Location was good in the centre of the city. Room was clean but the corridors and the walk ways look like a place from a horror movie.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
