Normally when a hotel advertises it's heritage you think of a nicely well kept facility. Hotel causeway boasts completely rundown facilities that will take you on such a nice time warp that you will appreciate what 50 years of neglect to a building can do. From the moment you walk into the facility the overcoming smell of mould will welcome you, then take a nice stroll to your apartment via a corridor where the mould is so bad that in the corners you no carpet remains (hint: it can only be from mould if it's in an area that people dont walk). Then finally when you feel like you have endured enough - you enter your apartment.... Don't do it, walk back to reception, demand your money back and check in somewhere else.

Having booked on line to take interstate visitors we were so dissapointed. Rooms were exceptionally run down Curtains hanging unable to close having lost hooks. Carpets and furniture badly stained and worn. Skirting board hanging off. I could go on but won't. Actually rate this hotel beyond one it's just that i could not alter the rating. We did not stay after viewing the room. We had to pay an amount even though all we did was look at room and then leave. Unsure what this amout was for other than it being underhanded. We checked out and walked through the arcade to The Novotel which was exceptionally cheaper and amazing. No comparison what so ever. The excuse we were given for the room being so sub standard was that the building is heritage listed. Well it may well be but in my eyes things can still be clean. Our money was eventually refunded less the amout paid for us having held the key for 5 mins. All i can say is do your homework so many other cheaper wonderful hotels within walking distance. This hotel is beyond backpackers standard

Described as boutique, I’d probably add shabby to their description. Fantastic location, I was there for business, so didn’t do much exploring but you definitely in the heart of it all. The room disappointed a bit and given the building and sleek side door entrance you could have expected more. Staff were nice, breakfast disappointing. In summary, if you want a central location and bed only – go for it. If you want more from your room, look elsewhere. (oh and really slow internet)

Booked in to this hotel ,travelled 4 hours by train to get there and find you can't be in your room before 2 pm . I arrive at 11 am .So I went and did some shopping had some thing to drink returned as I needed the bathroom . I was given a key to a second floor toilet , first impressions are not good hallways are oppressively hot with dark brown carpet if I hadn't already paid by credit card I think I might have left and cancelled by stay .im waiting for my trip to begin but want to freshen up .

A neat tidy hotel located in the centre of Melbourne. If you want to do the full Melbourne laneways dinning, hipster thing the hotel is as central as it gets. Everything is at your doorstep. Good thing too as it doesn't have anything else to offer. Our room was adequate a comfortable bed but not much more. It did have a odd single lounge / fold out bed. The bathroom was compact with the smallest shower I have ever used (and I've been on cruise ships). They advertise having Foxtel but it's only 3 channels - not a good option given it won't be either the NRL or AFL dedicated channels nor the movie ones. I could write about the other ammenities but there aren't any. The rooms are clean in a dull corporate grey coloured scheme loved by airport hotels the world over, a bit dated but then there isn't much to keep you there. My recommendation enjoy the hipster attractions and come back just to sleep.

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
