“A little gem.”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for one night whilst waiting for our daughter to be admitted to hospital and were very impressed with the spacious room and spotless amenities. Kitchenette is well equipped but why would you want to cook when out the door there are heaps of restaurants?
Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
Excellent location to public transport, shops and the inner city.
Would stay here again.

We stayed here this week in twin rooms. The rooms are very small but seemed pretty clean. There was one one face washer for a twin room. The shower curtain did nothing to keep water off the bathroom floor. We got into bed and it was rock hard, you could hear the springs of the bed everytime you moved or even breathed. The pillows were like pancakes and there were no additional ones in the cupboard. There was so sheet on the bed so my feet became exposed during the night, not nice in winter. We got NO sleep due to being so uncomfortable, I have slept on more comfortable beds in third world countries.
The position is great and very quiet but I would never stay here again or reccomend it to friends and family.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

The 4 of us were so impressed by this reasonably priced hotel. You're right on Lygon street, our rooms were very well appointed, quite, comfy bed and not much street noise. The staff were very pleasant and we had free parking. We will stay again.

Blood on walls. Stains on carpets. No top sheet on bed. Heater did not work. Got abused by owner's friends/family that were sitting by front door (seems they think if they speak Italian, nobody will understand. Wrong). Noisy renovations with hammer drill at 8am and again at 10pm. So much for sleep in. Water was disgusting and brown. After being changed rooms due to heater not working (and making loud noises), found the new room's heater also did not work. Was treated very rudely by staff and told it's highly unlikely that both heaters don't work. He came to the room and found that the heater did NOT work. Faulty remote control. Eventually fixed (got different remote) but no apology for being treated so rudely.
Will NEVER stay here again and would recommend others look for somewhere else if they want peace and quiet or friendly owners / staff.
Very cheap appliances in room. Noisy rooms with bottles being put in bin each morning around 3am (at neighbouring cafe's). Rude / abusive staff / owners.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great location - so many great restaurants literally at the doorstep. Close to everything.
Rooms were surprisingly quiet - no noise from street, restaurants, traffic etc. Rooms are neat and clean. Only complaint would be that our bed (room 303) was very lumpy and uncomfortable. We woke several times through the night. Other than that, great stay!

This is a very nice apartment hotel located in the heart of Italian district and with many restaurants within a short walk. It's also very conveniently located for visiting the city centre, so perfect for tourists like ourselves. The owners were so friendly and helpful, we really felt at home right away. We were even given a bottle of wine, made by a friend of the owner! The room we had was pretty compact, but comfortable, with a kitchen area with cooking facilities. The only downside was that there was nowhere really comfortable to sit, although we didn't have lot of time to sit around on our trip! The room was very clean and modern, the shower was fabulous and overall, we were very pleased with this hotel.
