Nice hotel close to all CBD shops etc.
Room too small for the three of us.
Shower taps beyond the shower flow VERY poor design.
Toilet paper holder around the wrong way so roll keeps falling off.
Not enough mugs for coffee/tea. The third mug was requested and removed during room cleaning.
Overall this was a nice hotel. The location is on a quiet side street. My one complaint would be that it's a bit of a walk (15 min) to the Yarra River, where there is lots of restaurants and activity. There's a free tram right near by, but I never seemed to be able to catch it - I'd have to wait too long for it and by then would just decide to walk to the river instead. Also, the front desk at the hotel was always so swamped with people that I could never actually talk to the staff when I had a question. Maybe they need more staff at the desk? I've never seen a desk so swamped all the time though. Good free wifi though.
This is a very good budget hotel right in the center of Melbourne close to all the main places you may want to visit.
The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The microwave was a nice touch as I could cook simple meals instead of visiting restaurants all the time.
The problem with this hotel is its proximity to a very busy link road and.......Southern cross station.
The first time I stayed I was in the middle of the building. Great no view but not affected by noise.
The second time I was a couple of rooms closer to the station. A bit of noise.
The third time I was 5 rooms from the end and there was a lot of noise from the traffic and the trains.
So great location and price. Just make sure your room is not close to the station.
Stayed for one night to catch a show in the city, great location and easy to walk to pretty much everything. Great service upon check-in. Staff were very friendly. Have stayed in a lot of hotels in Melbourne, this one rates pretty high out of the non-five star venues. Couple of freebies at check-in were a pleasant surprise and much appreciated.

I stayed for 2 nights and booked one of the smaller rooms on offer. I found the room itself spacious enough. The bathroom was small but perfectly useable and in great condition with stylish decor. The bed was comfortable, and the kettle and fridge in the room came in handy. Free wifi is also a plus - the connection was reliable. Check in and check-out was hassle-free and staff friendly and accommodating - allowed me to store luggage prior to checking in as I arrived hours before check-in, and after check-out as I had a late evening flight. Hotel is located a few minutes' walk from Southern Cross station and there is a tram-stop nearby - very handy.
