One of my favorite hotels that I stayed in during my recent trip to Australia. It is a small hotel, and very quirky, but in a very fun way. I was upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite, and it was awesome! Beautiful contemporary decor, with a really comfortable shower and bed. The location is ideal, right on the edge of Chinatown and adjacent to the Parliament. You are about a 15 minute walk away from the Flinders St. station and the Yara river. Concierges were extremely helpful, confirming two of my tours and booking a Skybus transfer back to the airport. Lots of free perks--the minibar, local phone calls, and high speed wifi are all free!
