Not happy, won’t suggest
Good location. Superior rooms are ok. Standard very small. Rooms are very dark with no natural day light. Poor connection to internet and hotel charge extra for better speed. It wasn’t advertised on website. Staff unfriendly. They don’t do extra mile to better serve customers, they follow the abc of the hotel policy. Zero customer service.

You get what you pay for
Rooms are what you paid for - small but it has what you need - except for any shower pressure or even a constant temp

Avoid at all costs
After deciding to book another night, I was told that I could stay in the same room and just come back later to get my key sorted and management was aware. Instead I came to reception to update my room card with my clothes in a bin liner, everything disorganized and to be told I didn't book the same room and then told me they would check cctv to see If I went to reception. Disgraceful service and from.someone who regularly stays at the one in Perth . I will never book here again

Fair 4.0
Have used this hotel in our past visits to Melbourne and had no hesitation in booking it again for our two next trips. Unbeknown to me as I live in Scotland the hotel had opened a new section (The Courtyard) which was a big letdown as it had no outlook just a window that looked on to an inside area that reminded me of an old Victorian Prison. The hotel has its good points as it is very near to all the city's attractions, Southern Cross Transport Hub ( Airport Shuttle Bus, Metro and Inter-city rail network and interstate bus routes). The river walk again is very close. Use this hotel for this but avoid the Courtyard section. See my other post.

Have used this hotel in our past visits to Melbourne and found it very good, but this time we were in the Courtyard section in a Mini room which had no outlook and was noisy due to a fridge, air con and what sounded to me a water circulation pump all night. A mix up in reception ment a fellow guest came into the room due to a double issue of the room. The hotel has good points, very short walk from Southern Cross Station (Airport Shuttle Bus) and Metro link and close to all areas of the city, use a standard room for this but avoide Courtyard area.

Good Location
On checking in was told that my room would not receive daily housekeeping as it was not included in the price I paid and if i require fresh towels go to reception . Did not bother to question this as I was very tired and just wanted the room key. Seems strange that house keeping is a extra charge,However room was clean and comfortable and had a nice bathroom. Location was good
