Reviewed 25 May 2008

A terrible experience from start to finish here. They lost the booking via their own hotel website, but to be fair it was sorted out reasonably quickly. Room was absolutely tiny (not even enough space to get a cat in, never mind swing one). Bathroom was dirty, cigarette butts on window ledge outside, fantastic view into a brick wall out the window and paper thin walls that meant you could hear every word from adjoining rooms. Despite having origionally booked for five days, we moved out first thing the following morning - to be honest if it hadn't been so late at night when we arrived, we'd have gone somewhere else before that.

Reviewed 29 April 2008

Our family stayed at this hotel for 4 days during late April and was pleasantly surprised. This hotel is really good value for money.

We had read some rather ho-hum reviews about the leo pacific in melbourne, so i was expecting some dissapointments. Instead i was incredibly happy with how helpful the staff were, the fantastic location and the rooms themselves are adequately sized with new and refreshed fittings.

On the positives, the beds are large and the bathroom/shower is clean and sufficiently sized (the shower pressure is great). As mentioned the staff are a big bonus and always happy to help out when needed (ie provide directions, book taxis). The room is cleaned daily and regularly. The location is the best of all worlds: close to trams, shopping, cafes, restaurants and all major attractions.

Ideally, free internet would be provided and a few more plates, cups etc.

All in all, we ( 2 parents, 2 kids aged 10 and 6yrs and 2 grandparents) would happily stay here again.
