This place is in a great spot for walking into the CBD or heading out for dinner in Carlton or Fitzroy but I was a bit disappointed by the room (studio Rathbone).
The kitchenette is tiny and looks like it was installed on the cheap 20 years ago. It also takes up valuable space meaning that the bathroom is also tiny. The main part of the room has a hideous brown carpet with swirl pattern which adds to the dated feel, a shabby sofa and a decent sized bed.
Other reviews have commented on the high standards of cleanliness - I would say that on this front the room reached the minimum standard.
One other minor point: when we arrived mid-morning there was no-one there to let us in and instructions to call a mobile number. This wasn't answered either so we left a message which no-one replied to and it wasn't until we tried calling again half an hour later that we got through to someone.
