Value for money
I was very happy with my stay. The location of the hotel was ideal for my reason staying in Melbourne - it was a short distance to the Convention Centre. The café within the hotel was reasonably priced and provided options - buffet or a la carte. The room was exactly as described. It was clean and had everything I required. Although the rail lines were outside my balcony, it did not disrupt my sleep whatsoever. The tram station was a very short walk to enable me to get around the City which was very helpful. The staff were most helpful and extremely polite. I would choose to stay here when visiting Melbourne again.

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.
