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.

not even close to 4 stars

This place is so cheap it defies belief. "Oh no, we don't provide hand towels" What? Your guests don't wash their hands??? (Do the staff wash theirs?) Location is good but this place has absolutely nothing else to recommend it. Rooms are sparse and grubby; the furniture pockmarked and sad; there was an iron but no board, and the iron was filthy and leaked - I asked for another and they brought one and it was worse; the place is staffed by children (I guess they're cheap too); the list goes on and on. The bathrooms are so badly designed - no way of taking a shower without soaking the entire bathroom floor. Do yourself a favor and stay away

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

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.

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.

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.

Perfect location and goes downhill from there

Indifferent staff, poor room cleaners, noisy fans going outside the door all day til late at nite. The only reason we didn't check out was it was prepaid for us by someone else. Even though someone else paid we seriously considered moving to another hotel

good location - comfortable - poor quality service

turning a very convenient loation into some place you dont really want to go back to takes some effort, but they managed. their efforts to be "green" resulted in very few towels, only one facewasher, just impoverished supply of everyting. no "stuff" (snacks ordrinks) in bar fridge. just have never seen a place so cut down in service. and they said "no" when I aske to take a drik up to wife at breakfast time, since she had beenunwell over night (no fault of hotel). would not stay there again, unless I needed the locaion, and anyhow there is another hotel next to it.

Location is the only advantage

Poor customer service - very impatient and unhelpful staff; Unclear and misleading information about parking price; Terrible soundproofing - woke up serveral times in the night due to neighbour guests slaming doors and loud talking. Limited facilities to be called 4 stars Location is the only advantage, but do not expect a relaxing stay ! Overall not worth at all. For the unpleaseant experiance comparing with other Melbourne CBD hotel I have stayed in the past.
