    Great Southern Hotel Melbourne
    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

    Good facilities and location
    Very convenient for the airport bus, trains and tram. This is a modern hotel in a central location. The room was a good size and comfortable. We used the self-service laundry which is coin operated and useful if you're on an extended trip away from home. For guests who've already checked out, there's luggage storage and a shower room/toilet available.

    Good value for money, though not free WiFi
    It was really good value for money. Nice room, friendly staff, good location. Only two things why I wouldn't give a perfect rating: 1. Nowadays WiFi is such a standard that being charged extra for it feels wrong... It's not expensive, but they could give a basic access for free with possibility of paid upgrade (for either better speed or more data). 2. The room was clean all in all, but they need to pay attention to detail. Mould is starting to build in the corners of the shower and the blind was quite dirty. Nonetheless, I would recommend it, specially if you need to catch an early train or flight since it's really close to the station.

    Only stay here if you need to. A long stay would be depressing. Close to all amenities but otherwise a typical, shabby, next-to-train station place. Also deposit takes 3 weeks to come back, most places in Melbourne release on departure date. A bit odd.

    The hotel was overpriced and I'd rate as prob a 2/3 star. It's in desperate need of an overhaul as i think it was last updated in the early 80's... the beds we're uncomfortable and the room was hot as the air conditioning unit was broken and I couldn't sleep with the window open due to the smell outside.
