    Yes it was grand final weekend but $300 a night for a very basic room - that's just rude! The layout and decor gives you the feeling of being a jail inmate, torn carpet on the stairs, and dirty lifts make it hard to justify...More

    Stayed for the footy final weekend. Room was pretty basic, dirty walls. Didnt feel comfortable. People serving at front desk are rude, didnt even say hello or welcome or hope you enjoyed your stay. Only good part is the restaurant downstairs, had amazing cheap food!

    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

    Yes, $50 is charged to your credit card, and supposed to be canceled on departure. 3.5weeks later, I'm still fighting for my refund, and staff are very unhelpful.
