Recent guest reviews

Very close to Southern Cross Station, great value for money CBD accommodation.

walk distance from the skybus terminal. rooms are clean but small. you will find everything you need there...fridge, hair dryer, coffee maker, iron, safe deposit, etc. nice little hotel

We had a reservation for 5 nights and checked out after 2. There were cockroaches in our room. The door didn't close on it's own (we had to throw our weight into opening/closing it). There is a restaurant nearby, but I didn't actually see any access from within the hotel. The walls are paper thin. We didn't feel safe or clean.

Small and quaint, but very friendly. Melbourne has a good bus system so getting around was not a problem. hotel wasn't very far from local attractions and landmarks.

Stayed 2 nights while in Melbourne for the annual Boxing Day test match. Breakfast that once was included in room cost is now extra. No alarm clock in room. My room over looked construction site. Is near bus station for airport bus

Only 500mtrs from bus depot in CBD. Also near major train station

We found the room clean but super tiny. The breakfast included was very adequate but there was no internet, a strong need of ours, and it was impossible to open a window, so we needed to use the air conditioning all the time. All in all we would probably stay there again but people need to know that it's only about 1 or 2 stars.

If you are looking for something a bit different in a good location, this might be it. Room was excellent, but the staff service and breakfast are definitely in the ordinary category. Very handy location for central Melbourne if you are prepared to walk. However, the location in King St. is a bit sleazy - 2 strip bars nearly next door
