Good spot

Good location. A short walk to public transport and all things the CBD has to offer. MCG and Tennis Centre within walking distance. We had the 3 bedroom apartment (sleeps 6) on Level 1 which suited us very well. Good size kitchen and very large bathroom, separate toilet. Laundry looked well equipped (we didn't need to use it). Lounges were not the most comfortable and couldn't seat all of us, nor could the dining table. Happy to recommend to others.

Good location.

Pros: Everything. Nice quiet location and very comfortable. Parking right next door which was very convenient.
Cons: Parking rate could be extended longer than 24 hours.
Location: Restaurants. Arts centre. MCG. Tennis centre. CBD shopping. Heaps.
Checked us in early which was a bonus. Great location to everything we wanted. Walking distance and also trams close by. Nice quiet spot too. Would love to stay again.

Great small hotel in a great location

Neat, clean and tidy room. Loved the ex-warehouse minimalist style. Would have preferred a firmer bed however it was big, clean and comfortable.

Nice enough hotel but no help from the manager

Pros: Location
Cons: If your staff say the manager will call, then the manager needs to call.
The tap connected to the washing machine in our bathroom leaked overnight....we didn't use it...and the items we had on the bathroom floor were all water-logged. I reported this to the desk-person in the morning, and she took my details and said the manager would phone me. No-one called. I emailed on the address the desk-person had given me...twice...the email was delivered but nobody bothered to reply. It doesn't take much, and a little supportive service goes a long way. If you experience any difficulties at this hotel, don't expect any help.

Our stay was brilliant. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our accommodation was perfect. Our apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. Trams were easy to access and we had ample choices of places to eat and shop nearby. We would definitely stay again.

Handy location, nice room, but rethink the car.

Pros: The location is brilliant. The room was clean and well maintained.
Cons: Floor noise from adjacent room.
Last minute meeting required a stay somewhere in central Melbourne. This turned out to be pretty good. I normally don't take a car into this part of Melbourne's CBD but I had no choice this time. It is a tough spot to get to during the day - especially if you overshoot the access laneway and have to do a complete lap of the block to get back around there. Would have been nice to know the car access arrangements before arriving and would have saved 30 mins (yes - 30 mins for a lap of a block!). And it is really, really tight for access down the lane and into the parking area (small / medium sized cars would be OK). The staff are helpful and friendly. The room was neat and clean. All I needed. Only one minor gripe - noisy flooring on my upper floor room. The creaky flooring was a bit unnerving and distracting when the person in the room next door was moving around - especially late at night. It was hard to tell if they were next door or coming into your room. But overall a good option if you need a central location in Melbourne - and only bring a car if you really have to.
