We would stay there again - upgraded to a studio apartment.
Other than the noise of the trains all good!

Safe. Convenient location to trams. Good facilities.
Well located. Extremely clean, well appointed apartment with river views. Short tram trip to MCG. Short tram trip to Etihad Stadium. Opposite Crown Casino, so good restaurants close by. Hotel restaurant had small Menu, but good and affordable, with quality food. Drink service good. I liked the closed door to outside smokers area, which didn't interfere with you being inside and having unpleasant smoke from smokers in close vicinity. Convenience of newspapers and small but quiet sitting area in foyer. Great, affordable accommodation to stay.

Clean and comfortable hotel
Air con was not working properly over the weekend, appeared to be turned off but when more rooms were occupied then turned on. One lift was only working and the staff lift had no security. Staff friendly and helpful. Great view of the Yarra. Clean and comfortable hotel.

Great location and spacious
Fantastic location. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and crown casino. spacious rooms with a full kitchen. Was happy to see a washing machine/dryer. Would be good if they had small packs of detergent. The cafe below does decent breakfast and good coffee. The air conditioning in our room needed tinkering. Changing the temperature may sometimes turn off the air con all together, so had to leave the temperature quite cold. Sofa bed wasn't the best quality, I ended up putting the mattress on the floor instead. Overall, clean and comfortable accomodation and will stay again.

A nice-view hotel in Melbourne Centre
Location, view, room facility
Though a late check-in, staff was helpful. The river view is fine if you can get over with the train noise, room facility was decent.

Expected more
Experience was not what I expected. Location was the only real positive, oh and the soap. Great soap! Negatives - when booking room, picture was of a much larger and more appealing room to what I ordered. - Only one lift working, which caused considerable wait times. Service elevator wasn't much better. - View was ok if you could see through the grime. - $27 for parking - No courtesy umbrella But they claim to be a four star hotel. 3 stars if they are lucky.

location of the hotel, cleanliness and value for money
Stayed for our anniversary, with our room being upgraded upon check in. Was really surprised at the presentation of our room and the very friendly nature of the staff.
