“Peaceful and close to everything”
Reviewed 29 March 2008

Stayed 4 nights in March in a queen size room on the 9th floor. Nice big room with very comfortable bed, only negative was the old, dirty and worn carpet. Have been in touch with management and they promise all rooms will have new carpets before the end of 2008! Bathroom was small but clean and worked well. Hotel has a lovely peaceful old-world atmosphere. All staff were very friendly and happy to help. Excellent location across the road from Souhern Cross station so the airport Skybus is very convenient ($26 return, fast & clean).

First time visit to this hotel, (but certainly won't be the last).
The staff were amazingly helpful and went out of there way to be of service to us. Rooms were clean and well presented. Room service food was brilliant. Location is good for Telstra Dome, South Bank and City. Cant fault the place. Recommend highly.

Stayed here for 2 nights while at a on site conference. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely little bar down stairs, with happy and friendly staff. Rooms a little small but very comfortable, Water pressure not so great, had to run around in the shower to get wet. Short work to Crown and directly across the road from the DFO shopping centre.

I stayed with my good friend here for five days in late Feb, while attending a conference in the city. First impression was over the internet, and I chose this hands down over Batman's Hill and Explorer's Inn because of the stylish art deco of the rooms.

Upon arrival, the room certainly had good decor! I'm quite particular about staying in modern (read: no flowery bedsheets, bathtubs from the 1900's:P) rooms so I was impressed by the red pillow, thick and luxurious zebra striped bedsheets, and clean decor. Makes you feel very at ease. Toilet has not enough shampoo! But the room is large, clean, bed is comfy, and bathroom clean and marble tiled- a bonus!

One BIG bummer is the breakfast. It was not included with the room rate of $135 Aussie. We bought a light breakfast including only cold food for $18 Aussie. You only get bread, muffins, cereal, and fruits- barely enough. The so called $25 plus big breakfast with hot food included just tiny sausages, hashbrowns, and hams. Sausages were tasteless, fried rice also tasteless and everything else like supermarket food. For the price I expected a full continental breakfast. I recommend you skip breakfast, save the bucks for a delicious Melbourne breakfast at the cafes on Collins Street!!

Front desk service was polite and friendly. When I asked for my friend to be given a second room card and added to my room, the staff quickly arranged it. And my friend was able to get her room card without a hitch when she arrived :) Room cleaning seems thorough. You can arrange for later cleaning up to 4pm.

Hotel is close to the Southern Cross station and a tram is just across the road! Very handy for getting to the St Kilda Beach and tourist areas. Good for all travelers.

Overall, I'd probably stay here again for the same room rates. Rooms and staff gave me a great stay!

Not a "bad" hotel, to be sure, but expected far more from a 4 star hotel at $190 per night. Water pressure was odd, the shower cieling was too low causing condensation to drop while you are showering, the TV is from the 1970s, the clock radio and aircon controls are hidden out of sight, so I had to use my cellphone to wake up and was cold most of the night (I only found the controls in the morning). The pillows were flat and lumpy. The decor is nice (although I prefer modern style more). Also, they frstly gave me an interior room with no window going outside. Zero natural light. These are the sorts of things I expect to be told when I book.

Overall, you can get much better hotels for a lot less money.

And the location is not as great as you think. It is across the road from the main train station -- the train station that goes intercity. The main local station, along with the CBD and shops, is 2km away.

We stayed for 5 nights in January. The hotel is in an excellent location if you are travelling by train or plane. Its directly opposite Southern Cross Station where the airport express buses terminate. Its on the edge of the CBD and so in easy walking distance of everywhere you want to go as a tourist.
We arrived at about 11pm after a long flight and had a warm welcome, although the bar wasn't open (we had been expecting UK style - bar closes when the last resident leaves!), but fortunately there was a well-stocked mini-bar which did the trick!
The room was modern, spacious and well designed and the bed very comfortable.
A small gym was adequate for us to keep a little bit fit.
We didn't eat in the hotel, so can't comment on the food. There are some good cafes across the road serving an excellent breakfast.
