First time in Melbourne

I visited this hotel in the middle of Aug 2014. I was on biz trip in Melbourne. I can't say this hotel is good to family but if you're biz man and looking for reasonable price hotel. This hotel is right answer for you. The hotel room size and price is perfect and it's quite good place to stay and easy to access to any other place. Around hotel , has big station and over this station, you can see good sightseeing such as river and some forest. And if you enjoy some at night, this hotel is good to you, behind this hotel, there is many beer pub and bar. also you can take some good souvenir around hotel w/ cheap price. FYI, if you're asian , you can buy some thing easily around this hotel. In the room, Wifi is too slow for me, I'm not sure whether only my room has that kind of problem or not, but I has problem. LAN cable is work quite well. Toilet wise, there is no bath and no tooth-brush and no razor in bathroom due to green energy policy. But if I have to select bad thing is staff at front desk. this hotel staff is a little unfriendly, when I checked out.

Great location and value

Recent renovation makes you travel in time 100 years. Beautiful decor and tasteful design. The rooms are not that comfortable and the cleaning staff don't really clean, they just flatten the sheets and that's it. Paid Internet is overly expensive and the free one in the lobby extremely slow (as in every hotel).

Beautiful lobby, cramped rooms

I hoped for a bit more from a four star hotel. Yes, there is a beautiful lobby and fancy dining and bar. But rooms are very cramped, in particular the bathroom which had a shower/bath combo that had my tall husband crouching to take a shower. The complimentary wi-fi could not be reached on our 6th floor room.

Nice boutique hotel

This hotel is at a good location with free transfer service for skybus. Free and fast internet is a big plus. Although the hotel looks old outside, the rooms look very modern and nice. I had difficulty in getting a one king-size bed room when checking in (requesting by phone few weeks in advance). While I know such requests cannot be guaranteed, most staff (except for the first one handling my check-in) were happy to help (and I eventually got one). The water pressure in the bathroom is low though. Overall, a good hotel for a short biz trip.

Great little hotel

Great hotel in a great location. The staff are friendly and provide excellent recommendations on what to do, see and eat. The location can't be beat just across from the train station, two block from federation square and the free tram and tour bus.

Very pleased overall - would recommend

I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a long trip to Australia. Overall, I was very happy with it. The room was very clean, fairly quite and pretty comfortable. My main complaint about the room is that it could have used additional lighting. Staff was courteous and helpful. Location in the central business district is great. Convenient to many attractions and public transportation. Right across the street from the Flinders St. Station. I would stay again if I returned to Melbourne.

Small but nice

the rooms are small but the location and staff are great at this hotel. This is an old hotel with a lot of character. A big bonus is internet is free for up to 3 hours per day. I would stay here again. Lots of restaurants are within close walking distance.
