Fresh and tidy in a convenient location

Pros: Location
Cons: Cafe in reception. Even a nespresso machine.
Location: Close to transport, etihad stadium and trams is perfect for short stays. Seedy strip clubs and grotty pubs in the immediate area.
I have stayed at the PH northbank a few times now, mainly because it is very close to public transport to the airport. It's a not a particularly glamorous part of town, but it is a short walk from Southern Cross Station and super convenient. The immediate area is not particularly well served for weekend coffee or dining (unless you fancy a kebab) but it is a stroll from southbank and melbourne CBD shopping and dining. The rooms are spacious and the apartment kitchen is well appointed. I've always found the value excellent if I have booked well in advance.

Great location for a quick trip to the city. A short walk to both Southern Cross and Flinders St stations allows quick access around. The rooms have everything you need as well.

Disappointed

I was on the 9th floor with a view of apartments directly opposite (no privacy) and the noise of the trains kept me awake. I asked for a room higher up but was told they had a full house which I think was unlikely. On a positive note, cafe staff were friendly.

Great City Location

Lovely property overall. Shower water Heat needs to be inspected. Luke warm AT BEST. Cold showers every time on full heat. An updated TV to be able to play music through would be advantages.

Unsatisfactory

Pros: Location
Location: Not far from Southern Cross rail station
Bed was excessively spongy making it hard to move in. Gave me a backache. Didn't sleep well. The room was for a disabled person which my wife and I are not. The shower stream was way too narrow. No carpet. Unhelpful staff. Didn't clean room when we returned in the evening.

Close to most convenient sites and shops

Pros: Very spacious and clean
Walked out the front and hopped on the trams, and within walking distance to a lot of landmarks

Great hotel! Excellent price! We didn’t expect to have a full kitchen and small living/dining area in our room as it was only $170 for the night on a Saturday, we were very surprised! We will definitely stay again!
