Not quite happy

Location, Value for money, 24 hr reception
Not quite happy. There was renovation next door, very noisy since before 1000. Requested high floor but got room on first floor. Checked in at 2am but got to wake up early due to renovation next door, no warning whatsoever. Not friendly staff. Room looked old.

Great location & price!

Location, price, halal food availability
Great location and reasonably priced for family room. Restaurant in hotel serves halal meals. Walking distance to South Cross station for Sky bus airport transfer.

Worst place ever

good thing was the breakfast
Horrible experience. Walls in the room was dirty. Not enough pillows. Never said on the website I need to pay in case I damage the room

Great value for money

location, price, 24 hour access
I arrived tired after travelling for just on 24 hours. the desk attendant was great and allowed me an extra hour before check out as I arrived around 1am. there was a small amount of noise but it wasn't enough to disturb my sleep. would highly recommend this hotel for travellers due to its proximity to Southern Cross Station and the Sky Bus Shuttle, and trams to other city areas. not recommended if you wish to spend time sitting in the hotel room. It's not that sort of hotel.

Great Southern Hotel a big disappointment

Good location - easy booking - close to CBD Melbourne.
The stay was ok however, huge disappointment regarding car park. When I booked the hotel I was mostly interest in convenient location and most important, they lied saying that car park was included in the booking. As I arrived and went to reception to check in, get the apartment keys and password to drive into car park, the big rip off started. There was no car park available in my booking and I had no choice other than pay expensive extra fee to park my car out of the hotel in a public multi-storey car park nearby. I asked to cancel my booking because I expected park within the hotel for safety, convenience and bad weather on the day I checked in. The reception refused cancel my booking and said that no cancellation cold be accepted because I booked few hours before check in and they could not refund the money to my credit card. I was forced to use my booking and pay very expensive parking outside of the hotel's building. My impression and first time staying at The Great Southern Hotel was a big disappointment and a terrible mistake. I'd never recommend this hotel to anyone. Agoda web site is a ripoff .
