Cheap. Good location

Cheap and great location. Looking a bit sad in the hallways. Has parking but it was a bit tight. Room was ok. Very old. Not a fan of the "bathroom" - Shower and toilet in a glass box with no room to move. TV didn't work well. But for the price. I would stay again.

Budget hotel with friendly staff

Hotel is in bad need of renovation but my suite was quirky and cute - something needs to be done about sound proofing

Pros: Beds were clean and comfy, staff are friendly and helpful.
Cons: Car parking is woefully inadequate and the spaces are much too narrow. Corridors and verandas are very poorly presented.
Stayed 7 nights visiting friends and family and seeing the Grand Prix

nice hotel near where I was going to training

Pros: It was friendly. Close to where I had to go and a good price
Cons: The cleaning
Location: The Botanical gardens was nearby and also the Shrine of Rememberence. Also another park which I walked through to go to my training each day
I found it to be extremely friendly. I was disappointed that the room wasn't cleaned thoroughly each day. But it was comfy and had all I needed.

Comfortable hotel in South Yarra - handy location

Pros: Handy to tram, city and nearby restaurants and shopping. Café area is informal and pleasant to sit for a meal or a cup of coffee.
Cons: Renovation required throughout, not all TV channels available, room stuffy if air con or bathroom fan not operating.
Location: Handy to tram, Botanical gardens, other parks, shopping in South Yarra.
I stayed for 3 nights in a comfortable ground floor room, with just adequate facilities for my stay - i.e. bathroom, clothes storage and size. Breakfast either continental or a full breakfast at reasonable rates and in a pleasant environment. Staff were courteous and helpful.
