Room was a little stuffy and couldn’t let fresh air in unless keeping door open. Water pressure in shower was not great, but staff were extremely friendly and very close to everything in Melbourne.

I came in on an overnight flight and the room was spotless and clean. There was no window, only a frosted glass pane. Also, the rubber pillows were so very uncomfortable. This type of pillow exerts a force back on your face equal to the force of the weight of your head on the pillow. I had a most uncomfortable sleep.

Booked here as it was close to Southern Cross station. Simple but clean amenities. Good value for money.

Hotel itself is fine for the price point, but staff are rude and condescending. Totally unhelpful.

Great location, basic but clean which is all you need. I arrived on a stinking hot day and they’d have the air con in the room going and it was fabulous.
