Good Location, Clean Rooms and friendly staff. Located across the road from Southern cross station and a short walk from the heart of Melbourn, Marvel stadium or Southbank. The food in the restaurant was excellent and good value for money . Would stay here again.

The room is a good size bed comfy. The shower is great but the best thing is too put a towel near shower door as you will have water everywhere. The staff are amazing super friendly and helpful. Location is superb close to everything. Does get bit noisy on weekend was fine fr me. Wasn’t too bad. The restaurant worth checking out have dinner the specials are great especially the $20 Parmigiana and drink deal was delicious 😋. Staff are super friendly.

Checkin/out easy and quick, staff very friendly and welcoming. My room was very clean and comfortable, only thing missing was a micro wave but otherwise I survived 😁. I love how crisp the linen is. Straight across the road from sky bus and southern cross station, free tram route to everything and a pleasant stroll across the bridge to crown casino and This was my 3rd stay at great southern Melbourne and I will defiantly be back

Great location and clean room”

Room is clean, and very convenient to travel around within the city using trams. The only down side is the shower temperature water very hard for adjusting either is very freezing cold or super hot and the walkway from lobby to rooms is very old. Other than that is fairly good.

Nice place to be at central of Melbourne, usual position for shopping, relaxation and playing casino”

The hotel is located in centre of city, easy connection to city tour, shopping or other activities of relaxation. It's is old contruction but clean & tidy room. Receptionist are almost friendly with smile and welcome except a staff at reception desk at our arrival date (Ilvay, Asian people). He is seem bringing unpleasant & unwelcome face instead of being a professional attitude with smiles of a hospitality industry. Anyway, I also make a suggestion for stay with its property.

Great location. The only thing is very close to train station if you are very sensitive for noise maybe it's not the best choice. From my room cam hear trains noise.but that doesn't really bother me for sleeping.

This is very near Southern Cross train station. Also a walking distance to Melbourne's city tram. Very good location. Their breakfast is optional, don't expect much as they have limited choices. What i don't like is their shower, sometimes it's really hard to get the right temperature. Either it's so hot or it gets so cold. But will recommend this because of it's superb location.
