Very good stay

The hotel had all necesary, with a very friendly staff and a very good location, near many cafe´s, restaurants, the beach, and public transportation. There are some little things that can be improve, like internet because the sign do not reach the room so you have to conect at the lobby and everybody can hear your skype conversations, other inconvinient was that one of the windows of our room was not properly closed, letting in cold air and when we try to close tightly we couldn´t, and found the handle was full of cobwebs. Although this things, we had a very good stay, the staff was always friendly and helpfull

Great Location!

I booked this because of the reviews I'd read on it but was a little concerned because of the low price. I was really pleased when we arrived and went to our room, it far exceeded my expectations . Later we walked to find a dinner spot and the St. Kilda area is spectacular, what a fun interesting spot. Highly recommend this hotel, great value!

Awful

have traveled a lot and this has been one of the worst hotels i've ever stayed in. the pictures are not accurate at all. we were given a room on the bottom floor, a few feet from the parking lot. the lock on the door was faulty and often did not work, the heater also did not work so the room itself was freezing. the toilet flusher was broken. even though we already prepaid for two nights we decided to eat the cost and book another hotel. would not recommend this place to anyone.
