I stayed here for a total of 10 days for both work and leisure, and would definately stay here again when I next come to Melbourne!
Located just out of the CBD (but within walking distance) and with the tram line just outside the hotel, it is just a short walk from Lygon Street and the Queen Victoria Markets as well as the Exhibition Centre and Museum. Perfect location for shopping, eating and culture!
The room was more like a studio apartment wih a fridge and cooking facilities, a TV, couch and table, with the comfy queen bed in a small room which also held a wardrobe. The bathroom was tiny but functional.
From my room I could look into other people's apartments at the back of the building, but I didn't pick this hotel for the view! There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance to eat at, and there is a cafe downstairs in the lobby, as well as a convenience store a couple of doors down.
If you are looking for a great place to base yourself while in Melbourne and are out and about during the day and evening then this place is perfect in my opinion.
Travel Tip: If you take the bus from Tullamarine Airport that drops you at the bus station in town, you can get a free shuttle bus from the station to this hotel.
