Excellent location, comfortable. Staff was awesome, friendly and helpful. Room was what we would expect in an older hotel. No complaints at all.
Very good location close to the major Southern Cross Station, though it may take a minute or two to figure out the best way of walking to/from. $1 credit authorisation held at check-in. The room is unglamorous but practical and comfortable for the essentials (not somewhere to luxuriate and admire ...
I liked the bartender Regan that I dealt with. Also the room was nice except for two things. The main one being that every morning you had to kill little bugs that crawled up the shower stall. I believe they came from a little hole at the bottom of the shower. Not a very pleasant way to take a shower. ...
Great location close to Southern Cross Station and consistently comfortable, often available at a very good price to boot. I've stayed before and will stay again.

The capital of Victoria State in southeastern Australia, Melbourne stretches along the shores of Port Phillip Bay and encompasses more than 3,850 square miles, including the famous Yarra Valley wine region. The picturesque lanes of its central district are packed with both Victorian facades and 21st Century coffee hang-outs, making Melbourne unlike any other Australian hub. Designated a UNESCO City of Literature in 2008, it is at once a garden city, a cool coastal town and a slice of colonial history.
North of the Yarra River, the City Centre or Central Business District is a 25-minute cab drive from the airport and where to head for the 19th century ambience, trendy cafes and fashion stores that the city is known for. Flint Street Railway Station marks the distinction of this area and Federation Square is one of the world's busiest public areas, hosting arts events virtually every day.
Cross the river to bold-as-brass South Bank neighborhood, dominated by The Crown Entertainment Complex. Restaurants showcasing the talents of top chefs, clubs featuring live entertainment and international boutiques are the order of the day, as well the renowned Crown casino.
Go bohemian with the students of Melbourne in these funky northern districts. Bookshops stay open all hours and authentic Spanish tapas bars reign supreme in Fitzroy, while in University suburb Carlton, the Lygon Street Italian bistros are worth a trek for some al fresco lunching.
The largest open-air market in the Southern Hemisphere warrants a good few hours of browsing, while many a first-timer to Melbourne enjoys getting lost in the laneways that characterize Hoddle Grid. Just strolling down the famous Collins Street is like a walk down a Parisian boulevard, and you can discover tucked-away cafes, where local art adorns the walls separating an array of stylish ornamental parks.
The atmosphere of Melbourne is often likened to that of Europe, but the raw and rugged landscape beyond the city bounds is millions of years old. Learn how Melbourne came to be at the Melbourne Museum, which also has enough natural history and dinosaur bones to satisfy the young (and the young at heart) in your group.
Don?t stay in Melbourne without taking a drive out along the Great Ocean Road; a signature attraction in itself, you can also use the route to reach the haunting flats of Wreck Beach or the prime surfing tides of Bells Beach. Outdoor-lovers will feel like they?re walking among giants at the Otway Ranges?head up into the forest canopy itself for a stroll along the world's tallest and longest elevated walkway at Otway Fly.
Melbourne weather can change rapidly, but the city's rainy reputation is undeserved; on average, Sydney and Brisbane both see more annual rainfall than Melbourne. During the summer, temperatures range from lows in the mid-50s to highs in the upper 70s. Foliage changes dramatically in both the fall and spring, but the early months in the year are a particularly good time to see the Victoria countryside vibrant and alive.
