Location is good and plenty of space in a renovated block of apartments. The renovations are mostly cosmetic though, unsympathetic to surrounding heritage buildings, and of poor quality. Furnishings are also of poor quality.

Ease of check in. Ease of access. I loved the separated areas for bed, kitchen and lounge/dining, and bathroom. Compact but really nice - you're not making and eating food in the same space you're sleeping. I was at the Gipps street location. This is a nice quiet professional class area in Melbourne.
