Lovely building and great location. This was my second stay here - poorly designed bathrooms with little toilet space so feet have to be put into the shower when sitting on the toilet. We did ask for a bigger room but it wasn't any different than the previous one. Bad design which could be improved.

We enjoyed the accessibility of the hotel to Melbourne CBD. The room was clean on arrival. Unfortunately, on arrival, we were presented with 2 single beds. When booking the room for 3 people, we anticipated 2 twin beds. Hence, reception staff had that fixed for us by giving us a rollaway bed.
