Great location
Need to improve air quality. Was arranged a room near to exhaust from neighbouring kitchen. However, staff helped to change to another room after many times feedback. Was there 7days.

Great Location & friendly staff
After a red eye flight from Perth and only an hour of sleep we were allowed to check in at 7am at no extra cost! So thankful for the staff to allow such an early check in. Great Location, close to anything you need. Second time staying at City Garden and will continue to do so. Rooms could do with a paint, but who cares when everything else is fantastic.

I would never stay here again!
The hotel is in desperate need of some TLC - the walls were badly scuffed, the hallway needs a paint job and the carpet is in pretty bad condition. The air con unit in our hotel room wasn't working so I asked for a heater or extra blankets so we wouldn't freeze overnight. We were told there were no heaters and we eventually got some blankets after the staff member disappeared for almost an hour - I thought a 3.5 star hotel was supposed to have spare blankets in the rooms! I was told the air con unit would be fixed the next day but wasn't. The TV screen was smaller than my computer screen and only had 5 channels! Considering we paid almost $200 per night for the room, it just wasn't good enough!

Very Happy
All staff were polite, especially the manager who went out of her way to help us. The location of this hotel is excellent, placed close to China town restaurants and City centre. Our room was a double bed studio with kitchenette, most important for cooking. The room was very quiet and safe. I believe it was well worth the money. Will stay in this hotel again on our many trips to Melbourne.
