This is the 2nd time we’ve stayed here. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to Southern Cross station, supermarket, Southbank & Crown complex. The room was not flash but it was adequate for our needs. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, there were tea/coffee facilities, small fridge and wardrobe. It was quite a warm evening so we used the air conditioning throughout the night. The A/C is an old unit and was located above the door which was tricky to reach given there was no remote; it did the job though. The communal areas of the hotel probably require attention as they were not very clean and the internal balustrading resembles a prison. The staff were polite & professional and there is onsite parking available for an additional charge. The restaurant next door was very good value and made lovely parmigiana. Overall we were satisfied with our stay and the cheap price we paid for the room $100.

Great location. 👍. Rooms are pretty small. They are clean and the staff are friendly. The room I stayed in was as big as a donga. ( miners camp room). I'd advise anyone who wants to travel as a couple to ask for a bigger room. My room was what you'd get in a back packers single room. No cooking facilities, including no microwave. I'm not sure if it's value for money, to be honest. I stayed for 2 nights. For an extra $100 combined, I could have stayed at another hotel with more space and amenities around the same location.
