Okay but will not return
The location is very good, many shops, restaurants and supermarket nearby. But the loading and cleaning of those shops in early morning are extremely noisy. I am afraid that the cleanliness of washroom requires improvement. The stains were there for several days, so I doubt if the cleaning was enough or complete.

Awesome Place
This is my 4th stay here, every time I come to Melbourne I have always opted to stay here. I love the customer service, free pancakes every morning for breakfast, luggage room, lounge room and location is really great. I have noticed though the place is not as clean as before, if you can please clean the rooms more often, you'd be more awesome!
