Hello ! I just feel compelled to let you know about this hotel. I have been to melb before and stayed at some nice hotels there, always wanting to try something different I stayed at the 353.
Our room was a King Superior which were two beds pushed together. We could not cuddle in the middle otherwise we would fall down the crack. Very Uncomfortable to be in the middle. Our room was along a hall way, about 4 doors down from the lift, however if someone from the 16 rooms on our floor was to use it, the lift was so loud it would wake you from your sleep!
If you wanted to hear a "hello" Or "have a nice day" or "I hope you enjoyed your stay" or any sort of greeting I would advise not to come here. Front desk staff were not friendly or even crack a smile. I made it a game to try to get someone to smile. My score was Me 1 smile them 9 non smiles :).
Breakfast was included. Toast and cereal. Nothing to write home about.
The good thing about this hotel was its location. In the heart of everything. The view from my window was concrete.
I would also recommend anyone going to Melb to use the sky bus. To book a skybus back to the airport you need to book through the reception. I did that. They booked it but didn't tell me where it would pick us up from. So I asked on another day who told me it was on the corner, another person told me it was on the corer but across the road!!! I had to ask around 5 people to get one straight answer.
I have not written a review before and have been to a fair few places. I am not unfriendly and I don't expect the best. I do expect something around for what I paid for. I felt I was at a hostel more than a hotel.
