Good Value City Hotel

Good location on the edge of the city and perfectly located for the Southern Cross station if coming in from the airport by the shuttle transfer. After an overnight flight I arrived early before the check in time and the staff managed to service me a room and went out of there way to get me into a room as quickly as possible. Fair standard accommodation at a great price.

Perfect for a 3 stars Hotel !!!

My review is based on a 3 stars Hotel, incannit compare to a 4 or 5 star hotel. If you looking de fancy hotels then don't read this. This Hotel is great for what it is, a 3 star hotel in a great location. Rooms are decent size with all u need. Clean, well spread out, mini fridge, TV, coffee/tea, desk, iron, etc with nice bathroom. Staff are very helpful and nice, no wifi in room , unless u pay for it ($18 p day), but ur paying cheap room so don't expect everything included (wifi, breakfast, etc) I highly recommend this hotel ! I will stay there next time I go to Melbourne

A bargain with few compromises

Excellent value for the price, and convenient to the Southern Cross station (airport SkyBus). Several amenities that are usually associated with fancier places, such as shampoo in plastic tubes rather than foil envelopes (or none at all); a big, modern TV set; and adequate lighting. Not to be confused with the Hyatt, but at well under half the price I was more than satisfied. I would return if I wanted to be in that area again. The main entrance, with about ten steps up from the street, is not wheelchair-friendly; I don't know if there is an alternate entrance from another side.

Great value

The room was clean and comfortable and a great value for the price. It was a bit noisy, however, due to noisy neighbors (could happen anywhere) but also due to music from the nightclub across the street - maybe not a good option for light sleepers?

Room could've been better..

This is not my first time at this hotel, and previous stays were decent to very good. However this time despite asking for room change during my 5 nights I kept getting rooms that were quite noisy. There seems to be machinery noise 24/7 where my room was, and the other room I was given had a lot of street traffic noise. Apparently for the same class of rooms you can get totally inferior rooms as opposed to decent ones(on my previous stay)..

Cheap

The room was tiny. The corners of the bathroom had dirt in them. The bathroom ceiling had mildew. The bathroom door was a sliding door hung in front of an opening, had no anchor on the bottom so would easily swing, and did not close all the way. The bathroom window was glass slats and the outside screen was shredded. The internet was overpriced (15 minutes per day free). The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was good (fruit, bread/toast, cereal, unsweetened yogurt) and the same every day. The lobby looks nice. The staff was friendly. The location was convenient for me.
