first night :)

After a 27 hour flight from the uk I arrived at the hotel at 8am to discover that my room would be ready from 11am. They were happy to keep hold of my bags until I could get into my room. Having already been to Melbourne I was aware of the location and local amenities. Very central. Great hotel for a reasonable price

Good location and that's it!

They didn't have our booking on their system (for 2 different stays!) and their attitude towards us wasn't good when dealing with this - it was a problem on their system - make sure to bring a printed copy of your reservation confirmation!! I'm afraid the lack of free wifi and provision of very expensive wifi makes us rate the hotel poorly and we would not recommend it to friends and would not stay here again. We travel quite a lot and were very surprised at the lack of free wifi in the hotel, it is such an essential part of life especially when travelling. The hotel is in a great location, rooms are fine but don't have a lot of storage if staying more than a couple of days. Staff were alright, probably 2 out of possibly 6 staff we came across on our visits could be classed as friendly and helpful.

Huge foodcourt in the nearby Southgate complex is good for breakfast and lunch. Free wifi available in Southgate too. Cross road and walk up steps beside the gorgeous Langham Hotel for quickest way into the complex.

Room for improvement

Travellers expect as a minimum a CLEAN room with a good bed for the price. a customer (=traveller) oriented friendly information desk (=reception) would be a plus.

Fantastic Location

The location was fantastic. Within easy walking distance of transportation, food, shopping and entertainment. Check in was wonderful, especially since I arrived on an international flight at 9:00 AM. However, that being said amenities were almost non existent. The Internet was down, the breakfast was too expensive for the poor quality of the food. Not a good value. Once the Internet came online, it was too expensive especially if all you wanted to do was access email. They also could be more helpful in providing travelers with information on where ATMs are located and the surrounding venue. A television channel run down would also be helpful.

Great Location, Helpful Staff

We stayed at the hotel for one night(Apr 2013). The hotel is very centrally located but the surroundings are not noisy at all in the night. Also, Flinders Street Station is a short walk. We also enjoyed the downtown stroll all the way to Queen Victoria Market. The Hotel is across from the more upscale Langham Hotel . If you will be parking your car, be sure to get your parking ticket validated by the receptionist to get a discount - otherwise downtown parking is steep.

Flinders Street train station is a stone's throw away. It is your gateway to travel in Melbourne. YOu might want to try "Lord of Fries" burger joint across from the train station. Also, across from the station is Flora Indian Restaurant - offering North and South Indian food.

Good location, less than average hotel

If you absolutely have to stay in the Southbank area, maybe but this overpriced hotel is marginal at best. Small rooms, expensive yet spotty wifi, sheets don't fit the beds, I won't be back. The lobby is nice but the rooms are just Travelodge and at over $300 a night, you'd expect a little more.

Excellent Location, Service and Price

Only one block away from the Yarra River, 5 minues walk to the Flinders Street Station. Location, Room Comfort and Value are all good. Paid Wi-Fi connection was very slow and inconvenienced but the front desk staff told me many guest had complained and there may be some improvement soon. Still 5 out of 5.

Sufficient

The hotel had comfortable lighting and a very helpful staff. The location was great - a nice walk along the river to the convention center. It doesn't have any fitness room, pool, or room service, but there is a kitchenette in every room, which was very handy. This made up for some problems I ran into: heating in my room didn't work, and the shower pressure was low. The staff was nice enough to bring in a space heater so I felt comfortable.
