I had a huge room, more like apartment with kitchen and living and bedroom. Everything clean and spotless in the hotel. Location is great to discover the city. I stayed only one night and left early to the airport, but for sure a choice for my next visit to Melbourne.

Staff were exceptionally helpful and polite! Viewers from balcony were good. A few first world issues. The balcony didn't have any seats or tables, luckily I brought my own. The bed was very firm and the pillows were flat - could just be my personal preference The bathroom felt a little dated with the bath/shower combo - most hotels/apartments I've...

Beautiful modern decor, clean and comfortable, great amenities with heated pool, spa and gym, onsite restaurant, room with kitchenette and balcony, friendly and helpful staff, well positioned in Chinatown and close to the CBD. You could not ask for more at this price point. Fantastic value for money.

The TV was annoying as we couldn't plug our USB into the back of the tv and watch our own shows. You could only order movies by paying. With The price you pay per night you shouldnt impose restrictions on tv. We have stayed at cheaper places and could play movies and songs!also very noisy. Could hear street noise all...

Firsts family holiday with a little one is always going to be nerve racking. Loved having room service for those tiring days. It was a good location as we wanted things conveniently near us. I wish that vacuuming was done on a daily basis as I had a toddler. Wished they had provided extra towels for my son as I...

This is one of a number of hotels I have used during my business trips to Melbourne. I particularly wanted a property central to Melbourne for a change. I was very happy with the location and quality of the room. I will definitely be staying there again in the future.

Dear Ian, It is good to hear that you found the location of the hotel to be suitable for your needs. I am sorry to hear that you found the service on check in to be poor. Upon review of your reservation it appears you were booked into a 8pm late check-in studio apartment which has a guaranteed check-in time...

Great location to Chinatown and shopping including Bourke Street Mall, QV, and Melb Central...perfect if you have shopping on your to do list. Heaps of restaurants within walking distance. Our room had a balcony which is great for getting some fresh air into the room, big advantage. Staff are very friendly also.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
