    It is conveniently located and the price is so fair The breakfast is excellent. As i said, value for money, and the room is very nice and tidy. We loved the hotel and will come back.

    Well, we always have to ask for bath soap (or body wash? it should always be there everyday, without for asking it) Just that.

    Location was perfect, just minutes walk from Southern Cross. Prices very cheap, less than backpacker rooms. Room spotlessly clean, friendly staff.

    Staff were friendly and informative. Room was clean and housekeeping was excellent.

    Bathroom ceiling was leaking. No bath plug provided. Bed was old and squeaky. Staff also made us pay prior to staying without choice which made tipping staff difficult.

    Close to railway station and skybus. Easy to get into city.

    Room needs a definite upgrade - smelled of mildew, carpets worn and dirty. Ensuite bathroom shower moldy. No wifi - have to pay. Very noisy.

  • Couple
    5.0

    The location was brilliant, easy access to the station with the shuttle bus located within in it to take you to the airport.

    The hotel was a bit surprising, it was in desperate need of refurbishment. Carpets were very unclean and facilities were very limited.

  • Single
    8.2

    It provided a bed and suited my needs for the night.

    No bars of soap in the bathroom. I should have asked, but I was tired.

    Location was excellent, my daugher and I went to Melbourne for shopping and sightseeing and it was great. Could go and do some shopping come back unload and go out again with ease. Close to trams, buses(from airport) and trains and grocery shop acorss road. Couldn't ask for more.

    Bit noisey at night,On forth floor and had to negoiate a flight of stairs after a lift ride, to get to room, bit much with two suitcases, and reception was not well laid out, but they were busy.
