I found this hotel delivered what it advertises clearly. As a single traveller without a lot of luggage (unusual for me!) I I found the room was adequate in size, as was the bathroom. It was clean and attractive, staff were pleasant and efficient, and the breakfast offered more than the usual dreary hotel fare at reasonable cost. Location is perfect for walking from Southern Cross and close to the free tram.
I think a guide to what is supposed to be in the room would help: I had to ring twice because there was no hairdryer. I found the shower curtain solution ingenious. However the amount of bedding was totally inadequate for a cold Melbourne night, there was no spare blanket, and I had to keep the heating on all night, not very environmentally friendly.
Some little issues such as bathroom door not closing properly would be more significant if sharing a room, and I would think twice before booking other than as a single, but I would certainly go there again as a sole traveller.
