Lovely apartment, very clean, comfy bed and pillows. Shower was awful, not tall enough and terrible shower head. Had a late check in and they were terrific and accomodating.

Lovely comfortable bed and roomy apartment

Pros: Location and cleanliness
Location: Very convenient for everything in and around Melbourne
We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel and would definitely stay there again; exceptionally clean and comfortable and in a great location. Free car parking at the back and a kitchen to prepare food are bonuses. Annie very welcoming and we would recommend this hotel as great value in Melbourne.
