Stay as own home

Clean & New, Like own home, Good price
There is a tram station just in front of the hotel (Queensberry station). But it is out of the free tram zone. So, you need to touch on & off Myki card if you want to direct stop at here. Most of the time, we will walk to the free tram zone area at 500m away (Melbourne Central station). We will only direct stop at hotel when we are very tired and handling heavy things. The hotel is like a studio, provide many equipment. It is comfortable like my own home. The hotel quite near to Queen Victoria Market and there are few Asian marts around. Since cooking equipment provided, we bought some food from market/mart and cook ourself. It is cheaper & having luxury food than dining out with the same cost.
