    Stayed for one night, just a basic room, lack cleanliness. Not worth the money. No recommendations. Only good thing about it was the location - inside CBD, very close to the market. Lots of restaurants nearby.

    Staying here over Grand Final weekend. The room is of average size and has very basic amenities. The laundry equipment wasn't working and the oven didn't heat up. On the plus side, the location is handy to the CBD and Victoria Markets.

    Great location to access the Vic Markets, along with the motorcycle shops. Short walk to Lygon street for dinner. Spacious room, could do with a bit more cleaning. No toaster in the room. Car parking is very tight and not suitable for vehicles over 2m...More

    Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
    tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
    feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
    city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
    throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
    never quite know what you’ll find around the next
    corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
