Location was great, so many restaurants close by. only a short walk to the tram or to the CBD. Kitchen facility was only just ok, but we really only needed it for breakfast. Reception staff were lovely, pleasant and welcoming at all times.

We upgraded to one of the suites. Location was excellent. Room was spacious but needed repairs and upgrading. I don’t think there is a better street if you love Italian food. Near to trams and easy access to shops, etc. Staff were either brilliant or useless. I would definitely go again but only to the suites.

It was a nice experience staying at this property. Complementary parking was handy. All furnitures were like new, so, will recommend others too. Wasn’t that expensive either.

Nice room, shower good pressure, free parking was very handy, close to all the Lygon eateries and just a short walk to Nova Cinema. Easy walk to St Vincent's hospital through the always pretty, Carlton Gardens.
