Traveled to Melbourne for a business trip and wanted a central room so we could easily get to most addresses in the city. This hotel was in a great location and even though in the middle of the city the rooms were really quiet, we read that it was only a 3 star hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised.
We ended up with a family room, which was massive with two queen beds. The bathroom was a little tired, but very functional and we had no issues at all. It had all the amenities required for our trip including a good size desk to work from.
There was a really nice bar area in the hotel, with a good meal selection as well as a cafe on the ground floor with good coffee.
Would stay here again.
