right place, right price

The meeting at the neighboring really expensive hotel was steps away, and the transportation hub at Flinders St. Station is an easy walk. With an 8-day stay, I greatly appreciated the microwave, fridge, sink, and dishes. The seating area (love seat, coffee table, round table and two chairs) worked well. My only quibble was the short shower curtain that let water spray around the bathroom floor.

Sparce at best but good location

This is a perfect place for a student traveler. Just the bare minimum; felt like a youth hostel. Location was good.

Great location, rooms adequate

Great location. Hotel staff were o.k., but nothing special. Were initially offered a room (for 2 adults and 1 tall pre-teen) with 2 twin beds only. Had to ask to be moved and then got room with 2 double beds (but would have thought staff could have looked and seen our family size).

good location, clean but BAD BAD service

The reception staff were incredibly rude, no concept of customer service at all! The rooms were nice and clean but honestly would rather stay somewhere else.

Would come back again

Nice location close to Yarra River. Just cross the Yarra River and you're at Flinders Station and in the middle of the shopping area.

Tried to add a credit card surcharge

[...]This ws my third stay at this hotel in the last 3 years. The hotel has always been a basic hotel in a great location. I have noticed that the service gets a little worse each time I stay there. I will be looking for a new place next time I am in Melbourne.
