Well, it's tucked away in the heart of the cbd, and if you turn left out of the hotel's sliding door, you'll find the entrance to an arcade. Through the doors and on the below ground level, you'll find one bookish nirvana... a large dymocks that greedily consumes the entire floor. Upstairs is British treats from home, but that's another matter reserved for sugaholics. If you turn right out of the hotel and up over Swanston to Russell, you'll find the gorgeous Theosophical Society bookshop where you can ponder the chakra below your navel... and 7 mins along Russell towards central station, you'll find Embiggen books, a cave of adventure. There's more, but that the golden triangle for us. Now the hotel... Neat, the gym upstairs is useful, don't bother with the continental breakfast for $18, you can get coffee and a toastie for $6 if you turn left and go into the first little arcade. You're also near the impressively cheap Hari Krishna restaurant on Swanston, where you can feed 2 for $12....yes, right... Back to the hotel... Worth the stay. The only complaint we have is the fact that there are soft silly pillows with no choice of supportive firmer ones. Other than that, splendid.
As we were on a package deal, our room was one of the smaller, economy, ones. The hotel has seen quite a few years of service and this shows in the decoration. Everything was clean and tidy, but getting to the stage where a major refurbishment is required. Staff were friendly and helpful, in true Aussie style. Breakfast was acceptable, but nothing special.
Fantastic location, so central to all things Melbourne CBD. We stayed one night in a junior room to attend an event at Melbourne Town Hall (2 minutes walk from the hotel.) Our room was small but clean, a little outdated but had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful and the included breakfast was very nice.
This hotel is in a Fantastic location. However it needs to be as it has very little else going for it. We stayed when it was an almost booked out city with concerts and sporting events on and it was one of the last rooms in a central spot we could find. It was extremely overpriced for what it was but I think it must have been from the demand. We paid $450 for the room but I would definitely not pay that if there were choices available. It was not dirty, but you could not help thinking it was somehow not clean either. It just seems very tired and needs a real makeover!
Our room was well equipped, everything worked and was in good condition. The staff we met at this hotel were brilliant - thank you to everyone. Well done! I mistakenly thought they had charged me twice for the room (forgot I went to the cash machine!) so emailed them and got a friendly response explaining this within an hour so again great service. Cannot fault it at all. Comfy rooms, great price, right in the middle of Melbourne
This hotel was dirty and dingy, the bathroom was filthy with scum around the bath and the tiles were covered in mould.The shower hot water tap fell off and the toilet roll holder also fell off the wall. The walls were all scuffed and the carpet badly stained. There was no sign on the door warning guests that there were two steps up immediately on opening the door to the room and I fell heavily with a large suitcase bruising my arm. I asked the hotel staff for an incident report form and was met with a blank stare. I sent photos of the bruises on my arm along with photos of the broken tap and toilet roll holder and the dirty bathroom, to the email address provided by reception staff, and to date I have not even had an acknowledgement of the email or an apology. I am disgusted.
Our overseas friends had been booked into this hotel by their travel agent and as we were spending the weekend with them, we decided to stay at the same hotel. It would not have been our choice as we have stayed many times in Melbourne. The hotel was very old fashioned but not quaint old fashioned just old and tired. The doors to our bathroom needed a good clean with detergent. The linen was all clean and the bed very comfortable. It was very central for shopping and the theatre but there is no parking and we had to carry our bags down down an arcade to the hotel entrance. It was quite busy during our stay so I assume the room we were booked in to was possibly the only one free. It was a spa suite with a very big spa bath in the bathroom with a shower over it. Staying just one night we did not have time to use the spa bath but the shower was over the bath and was very tricky getting in and out. I felt it was very over priced for the quality of the room.
Stayed here as an overnight in the city for work Christmas function. Good location, front staff were good. Room was basic but fine for one night. No views from room. Lots of cafes and bars in walking distance and very convenient.
Location is perfect but has jumped the shark comfort wise. Dirty tile grouting, mdf doors worn and water logged. A bit grey and bland. Breakfast a bit mean. Felt a bit like a back packer for what was supposed to be a nice couples weekend. Definitely NOT a romantic venue. Great for solo business stay.
Great location for shoppers,plenty of resturants nearby.Rooms quite big chair and table provided,bed comfortable,clean and tidy. Could do with new carpet and a paint,but other than that very good .Will stay again
