Positive Reviews

Stay in the heart of the city...

Guests love the hotel's central location, often commenting that Southern Cross station is just a few steps away and there are tram stops nearby as well, though there are many restaurants, shops, and attractions within a comfortable walk.

High marks for hospitality...

Guests frequently give the front desk staff high marks for their friendly and professional service, noting the team is pleased to provide their knowledge of the city and to store luggage so that new visitors can make the most of their time in Melbourne.

Easy on the wallet...

Guests give the hotel a good rating in terms of value for money, noting the level of comfort, space, and amenities in the "upgraded" rooms are fair for the price range. Free Wi-Fi is much appreciated and the complimentary breakfast also helps the bottom line, though the upgrade to a hot buffet is "worth it" for those with big appetites.

Negative Reviews

Not much of a view...

Some rooms do not offer exterior windows, though guests in rooms with windows note they are in urgent need of washing. The interior Economy level rooms aren't much to look at either, unfortunately, with guests routinely describing them as drably decorated and in need of maintenance.

Plumbing troubles...

Guests have reported a lack of hot water in the rooms, among other plumbing issues. Noisy pipes are also an issue throughout the vintage building.

Housekeeping matters...

The housekeeping staff seems to have an uphill battle with the general condition of the older parts of the building and hallways, as the overall impression of these areas is not "dusty" or "grubby."
