We stayed here for one night before embarking on a cruise. Consequently we had two heavy suitcases but need not have worried about carrying them up and down the seven steps at the entrance as staff were quick to help. The accommodation was excellent value for money and the breakfast was very good. The hotel's location is ideal, being near Southern Cross Station, and we will happily stay here again next time we're in Melbourne

Selected this hotel for the location, location was great. The included breakfast didn't include the full breakfast options that came at an additional cost. Small but serviceable room. The room was clean on arrival, however, I found that there was mould in the shower. I was disappointed when I asked for some information about inner Melbourne and nearby transportation. I was advised I would need to pay for the tram so I purchased a card and loaded it with funds only to find out that it wasn't needed and was a waste of time and money. Overall, the hotel provided me with what I needed, however it left a lot to be desired.
