“Can't beat it on location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

My husband and I stayed here for the second time to celebrate my birthday. As always, we were most impressed with the friendly service but above all the amazing location of this hotel. Smack in the middle of the CBD you can walk everywhere. In fact, if you just cross the road you are in David Jones' Food hall!
Last time we had breakfast included, but this time we opted without and ventured to the next st for our meals.
The room is always neat and tidy, (but perhaps in need of a little TLC) and the complimentary fruit and chocolates are always a big hit :)
Staff are always pleasant, leaving our bags there after check-out is never a problem.
We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: Opt for a walk in shower bathroom though, they appear a bit more spacious, or, splurge on a spa roon...

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.

My daughter and I recently enjoyed a magical 2 night stay at this hotel. Nestled down a lane off Little Collins Street means there is no traffic noise yet it is conveniently located within easy walking distance to everything in the CBD, the fashionable shopping malls on its doorstep. The room was clean, spacious and warm; the chocolate and fruit on arrival were a welcome treat. The staff were friendly and special mention to Sarah who was extremely helpful. Continental breakfast was included and we appreciated the freshly cut fruit on offer each morning. Having access to the coffee/tea machine and the magazines/newspapers in the dining room at all hours was a bonus. My daughter found the gym well equipped. We were made to feel very welcome at this hotel.

the only good thing this place has going for it is its location - the sofa bed is uncomfortable, the room was grotty and the cutlery was dirty, the heating was stifling and could not be adjusted, the elevator was extremely noisy and could be heard all night, so don't expect any sleep. To top it off, the staff didn't really care when we gave them feedback and told us we were entitled to our opinion!

Room Tip: avoid room 521

our room had peeling paint, was dirty, corroded rusty bathroom that smelled like sewage. next door restaurant patrons used the lobby bathroom and created a lot of congestion in the very cramped lobby. the elevator groaned all night, making loud animal like noises every time it went up or down. our carpet was filthy, there was no luggage rack in our loft suite, and staff had to run up from the sister hotel down the road to replace light bulbs in our lamp and bar...two days after our first request. hotel staff was nonchalant about their customer service and apparently had all just moved to melbourne from india. none of them could tell us anything about local transportation or restaurants. best thing about this dump was the amazing coffee machine on the breakfast floor.
