    Very good, be mindful of construction next door

    Very happy with hotel and overall standard. Unfortunately there is a construction right outside with trucks arriving very early, but of course no fault of the hotel

    Colourful doors and lollies.. service was okay but for what it was I’d look to a different boutique stay first.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Noisy airconditioning

    Nice things - checkin and when asked if we were in Melbourne for something special, we said our wedding anniversary and they gave us a chilled bottle of Dal Zotto Prosecco, my favourite. Complimentary minibar with 2 beers, 1 mini bottle of wine and lollies - lots of lollies? Something savoury would be nice perhaps - lollies everywhere in the foyer too. Not so nice things - the air-conditioning was so insanely noisy I could not sleep. No double glazing on windows, therefore, truck noise of reversing beeps from 8 a.m. added insult to injury. Also, to sit there was only the bed - certainly not a hotel to spend time in your room. The bathroom was odd. Sorry - no returns on this hotel. Read less

    Great fun hotel located in the east end of the city. Close to parklands, museum and plenty of bars and restaurants. The penthouse is a must and the two bed rooms also well laid out.

    Comfy and functional

    Comfortable and functional room for a quick business trip. Nice big sofa to kick back and watch some tv and an Alexa audio system form tunes. The hotel is located in a very vibrant and buzzy area of the CBD. Lots of cafes, restaurants and bars in the area.
