We recently stayed in a charming room that, while compact, offered everything we needed at an unbeatable price. The sleeping arrangements were ideal, featuring a comfortable double bed and a versatile sofa bed—perfect for our family. The bedroom included adjustable shutters, allowing us to customize the space to our liking. An unexpected incident occurred when our son, who is on the autism spectrum, accidentally locked the bathroom door from the outside. However, the staff responded with grace and efficiency. They were exceptionally polite and attentive, promptly restocking our essentials like towels, sugar, and coffee upon request. Moreover, they swiftly addressed the locked door situation, ensuring minimal disruption to our stay. Overall, the hospitality and responsiveness of the staff greatly enhanced our experience, making it a place we’d happily recommend to others looking for quality accommodation on a budget. Thank you to the staff for making our first family trip to Melbourne a great experience.

Very disappointed with this accommodation. Anyone looking at this for a short or long stay… Keep scrolling. I am assuming they have one room that possibly reflects the pictures on the website because we clearly got nothing remotely similar to what was advertised. Don’t be fooled by “walk in shower” daughter couldn’t even stand up underneath the shower head. You couldn’t sit properly on the toilet for fear of hitting your head on the poorly positioned cabinet. Dated and dirty. Not sure about the 24 hour room service as when we asked for another pillow and blanket we had to walk it to our room outside and in the next building, past the permanently closed cafe. We clearly weren’t the only ones as we crossed paths with a man carrying an ironing board to wherever his room was. Pretty sure this will be in the category of ‘backpackers delight’. Don’t mind getting what you’ve booked for but this was totally misleading advertising.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at this outstanding hotel. From the moment I arrived, the staff's warm welcome set the tone for an exceptional experience. The rooms were impeccably clean and well-appointed, offering both comfort and modern amenities. The hotel's central location made it convenient to explore the surrounding area. Overall, my stay was a perfect blend of luxury, convenience, and hospitality. I wholeheartedly give it a well-deserved 5-star rating.

This place is not how it looks in the advertisements, the one bedroomed apartment is so so much smaller than it appears on the pictures. It said it was appropriate for 3 people and we booked as a family of 3, there was a double bed and apparently a “sofa bed” but the sofa bed was less of a sofa bed and more of a futon couch that flattened out but laying on it was like laying on a concrete slab. To call it a bed would be the same as calling a street bench a “bed”. Along with this, it was stated on the booking and on a instruction paper in the room that the room would be serviced each day, providing new amenities and cleaning bathroom and providing new towels etc. however that did not happen and then reception informed us that they actually only service rooms every 3 days. We also asked for an extra towel and pillow as there wasn’t enough, they said they would send one up however this never happened so we went down to retrieve it ourselves. Overall a disappointing stay. However I will say it was in a good location and if you are looking for something super basic and staying alone for a short stay then it would be appropriate.

comfortable and relatively quiet room with all the facilities we required and at a reasonable price. Close to everything. Room had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable.
