I stayed at this hotel for two nights after getting a great deal online although I chose the hotel mostly because of its location opposite the Southern Cross station. What a great choice and one which I will repeat in the future.
From the minute I entered the hotel the service was great and went beyond what was required. As an example, I was very jet lagged and confused with directions despite knowing the area reasonably well so asked the doorman where to get a taxi to Melbourne Central. He advised that at that hour a taxi would be almost mpossible and advised taking the number 86 tram. He then escorted me through the alley to the tram stop and had the driver open the doors again to allow me to ride.
My room was probably the best I have had in any hotel in Melbourne previously. The hotel is very old but has been renovated without diminishing its special features, even in the rooms. My room, 914, was probably one of the smaller ones but was size adequate and tastefully furnished with a bar fridge, ironing gear and the usual bathroom amenities.
The breakfast room on Level 2 was very pleasant and the breakfast itself very good at a cost of $22 - $24.
Broadband and wifi was available in the rooms at $12 for an hour and $22 for 24 hours. I usually stay at hotels where this is included in the room rate so I thought that this was a bit pricey.
This hotel will be my first choice for my next Melbourne visit.
