I stayed here with a friend recently and we found it to be better than expected. The rooms were on the small side but were clean and pleasant to stay in. I can see that the hotel does need some maintenance, especially in the bathrooms but they were still clean and totally fine to use.
Location is fantastic! So central you can walk most places and even if its raining you can still get to shops and restaurants without getting too wet.
Breakfast was included (which i might add isnt in most places) and clearly stated as continental. I think for a continental breakfast it had good choices - variety of cereals, breads, fresh cut fruits, juices, coffee and yoghurt. considering its free, people really shoudnt complain.
Staff seemed friendly, we had a quick check-in and check-out and staff helped out with directions, shuttle buses etc.
I compared this hotel to a lot of others in central Melbourne and for the price it was good value. I think people are being too picky with small things for this hotel, perhaps if you are fussy you should pay more money and stay somewhere that is listed as 5 star.
My only negative feedback is the strong musty smell in the hallways, however we couldnt smell it in the room so it wasnt a problem.
